Croatia failed to beat the Czech Republic and are now in dire need of a win in order to have any qualifying chances. However, they are clashing against Scotland on Tuesday, on Scottish ground, and Scotland are also looking for the win.
The two teams are tied at 1 point in the bottom of the group, and literally anything can happen in Game 3, as England are clashing against the Czech Republic in the other match.
Croatia played a really balanced, and quite unimpressive, match against the Czech Republic in Game 2.
Their shaky defence leaked once again, as Dejan Lovren conceded a penalty kick at the 37th minute, and Patrick Schick didn’t fail to convert.
However, Ivan Perisic linked up with Andrej Kramaric at the start of the second half and managed to pull even. It was a really dull match in the second half where neither team created and valid scoring chances.
Croatia are now sitting at the 3rd spot of the group with 1 point and a -1 goal differential. They definitely need a win, as any other result would eliminate them. Same goes for Scotland, but Scotland also need to improve their goal differential even more.
Scotland’s match against England was very similar to Croatia’s match against the Czech Republic.
A really balanced match with an equal amount of scoring chances by the two sides and an equal (and terrible) amount of shots on target, with just 1 for each team.
Both shots were saved by the goalkeepers and the two teams did not look good offensively, hence the goal-less draw. Scotland have not scored a single goal so far in the competition but still have qualifying chances.
But they need a win here, and possibly by more than two goals in order to safely qualify as one of the best 3rd-placed teams. There is still a lot of moving pieces, but Scotland will not be involved in any qualifying scenarios unless they win this one.
Croatia vs. Scotland Prediction:
Both teams are in a similar position – win or be eliminated. Obviously the Draw doesn’t do any good for anyone, so we’ll most likely see a very passionate match.
This doesn’t look like a match that could have a lot of goals, so the Under 2.5 Goals is surely something to consider. The two teams have a long history of Unders in their matches and I am willing to ride with it.
