Croatia vs Cyprus Prediction & Tips
The first day of Group H qualifying for the next World Cup in Qatar has already given a surprise. Croatia were defeated 1-0 by Slovenia and now face Cyprus with the obligation to win in order not to see Russia escape, the most dangerous challenger for first place. The problem is that the Croatians are in a bad period with three losses in a row, with Slovenia, Portugal and Sweden, and have been winless since October 2010 (2-1 against Sweden). In short, even the game with little Cyprus, who drew 0-0 on his debut against Slovakia, can hide pitfalls. The national team of the island boasts a victory in their last three games, against Luxembourg, and will go on to play the game with nothing to lose. In Croatia to keep an eye on the many “Italians”, ranging from Perisic, to Badelj, passing through Pasalic and Brozovic.
Croatia have always conceded at least one goal in their last eleven games played, even against low-level teams such as Georgia, Slovakia and Azerbaijan.
It must be said that the Croatians have been on the net for 23 consecutive games
Defense is the weak point of Perisic and his teammates who have recovered the ball at the bottom of their net eleven times in the last four games.
Little Cyprus has managed to score twice in the last four races
Croatia favored for the final victory of the challenge, among other things the national team of the many “Italians” is already obliged to win. Cyprus is a low-level opponent also because his pool of players is minimal but in the end we think he will be able to score at least one goal against the distracted Croatian defense. So we focus on the “goal”.
