Croatia Wins

Match date: Saturday, 25 March 2023

Football – Euro 2024 Qualifiers

The Croats have every reason to approach this clash expecting nothing less than victory, as ending up proudly at the 3rd spot back in Qatar is quite a feat to achieve, showing what it means to play with a heart on the field in every single fixture.

Logically, their European ambitions are quite high after such a success, especially considering the fact that they are not that confident in the continental gathering in recent years, a thing that is undeniably scratching their mind and making them hungry to prove their quality on the European stage.

Midfielder Sucic (4/0, RB Salzburg) won’t be part of the team this time compared to previous call-ups.

Wales, on the other hand, definitely has room for overall improvement, as they are traveling to Croatia after failing to record a positive result in their last eight appearances, ending their story in Qatar with a taste of disappointment, being the group’s pushovers if we exclude their opener against USA 1:1.

After Bale’s retirement, there is room for fresh blood, however, they are yet to prove their worth in facing a nation that can be taken as an example of what it means to wear your country’s colors.

The guests will miss goalkeeper Hennessey (108/0, Nottingham Forest), defender Davies (77/1, Tottenham), and forwards Johnson (18/2, Nottingham Forest), Roberts (20/0, Leeds United), and Matondo (11/0, Rangers).

The bookies are quite reasonably giving a tag of a strong favorite to the hosts in the upcoming fixture, and denying their superior quality compared to Wales would simply be sailing against the flow.

Having such diversity in every part of their roster, the Croats have a nice chance to start the campaign in the best possible manner and dominate in this encounter if they approach it in the right way.
