Analysis and prediction of the match of the 8th round of qualification for the 2022 World Cup Croatia – Slovakia (11.10.2021)
Club football took a break, all the fans’ attention was drawn to the affairs of the national teams. The League of Nations is nearing completion, and the rest are fighting for a trip to Qatar. 11 meetings of the World Cup 2022 qualification are scheduled for October 11 in Europe. The battle of Russia and Croatia for leadership in the group is nearing its climax. On Monday, the Russians will be visiting Slovenia, and Croatia will host Slovakia.
After seven rounds, the Croatian national team is in the lead in group N. Although the position in the table is still precarious. Russia has worse goal difference, but the same number of points. But the Croats are in great shape. The midfielder of the Spanish Real Madrid Luka Modric, who has recovered from an injury, has returned to the ranks. The backbone of the team!
The other day against Cyprus (3: 0), the captain and leader did not convert the penalty, but otherwise he showed himself perfectly. Noted with an assist to Ivan Perisic at the end of the first half. Without Modric in the fifth round, Croatia has already dealt with Slovakia (1: 0), with him there is every chance to establish a more confident score.
By the way, Perisic, who became the champion of Italy with Inter last season, is also in excellent shape. The footballer has already scored 31 goals for the Croatian national team. The “checkers” have an excellent attacking arsenal, they create a lot of chances. If we add in the implementation, then Valery Karpin’s charges will definitely not win back such a difference in goals.
Croatians showed themselves excellently at the World Championships in Russia. In the final they lost to the irrepressible France (2: 4). We took the silver, which is the best achievement of the national team in the whole history. Then the generational change began, however, Zlatko Dalich’s charges gradually pass this stage. The chances of getting a direct ticket to Qatar are great.
Slovakia, in turn, cannot boast of anything grandiose. At the same time, difficult times have come for the national team. Since 2016, where they managed to reach the 1/8 finals of the European Championship, there have been no promotions. In the current selection for the 2022 World Cup, she is in fourth place and has the minimum chances of getting a trip to Qatar.
The roster is far from stellar, of the high-class footballers, only Milan Shkrinyar (who, however, became an anti-hero in the match with Russia, scoring his own goal) and 34-year-old midfielder of Turkish Trabzonspor Marek Gamshik, who became a legend of Napoli, can be noted. Nowadays Gamshik is no longer so good, his age affects.
In the seventh round of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, Slovakia lost to the Russian national team (0: 1). Shkrinjar cut off a cross-country pass into his own goal in the middle of the first half, and the rest of the time the Slovaks mercilessly besieged the possessions of Matvey Safonov. 27 shots, five – on target, while having possession of the ball for 74% of the playing time. The Russians have endured.
It is clear that playing the first number is unusual for Slovakia. It is difficult to act on your own in Croatia, but you have to. After all, if there is a draw, the November games will turn into a formality. The quality of the players in the squad, with the exception of individuals, is not the best. In terms of tactics, the team also often sags.
The victory of the played Croatian national team looks like a logical outcome, but the coefficient here is modest – 1.51. Except for the express train. In our opinion, you can take a risk and take a handicap (-1) on the hosts for a more pleasant coefficient of 2.39. We are waiting for something like 2: 0 in favor of the hosts. And in the case of a minimum advantage, a refund will occur.
Forecast and bets on the qualifying match for the 2022 World Cup Croatia – Slovakia October 11, 2021
The Croatian national team has gained momentum lately. Luka Modric returned to the ranks, who undoubtedly added sharpness to the attack. There are much fewer problem areas than the Slovak national team, which did not put the squeeze on Russia the day before. They attack great, defend even better. We are waiting for the confident victory of the hosts. It seems that the Slovaks have exhausted themselves at the current qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.
Bet : Croatia wins with a handicap (-1) at 2.39.
