Forecast and bet on Croatia – Slovenia, statistics, odds. In a friendly match in Qatar, the Croatian national team will play with Slovenia, which they beat big in the last face-to-face confrontation. Will the “checkers” manage to get an easy victory on March 26?
The Croatian national team received a direct ticket to the World Cup in Qatar, finishing first in group “H”. The team of Zlatko Dalic was ahead of the Russians by one point in the decisive face-to-face meeting of the final round (1:0) and guaranteed a trip to the World Cup. This is the first friendly camp of the “checkers” in the new year and Marcelo Brozovic and Sime Vrsaljko will not be able to help the national team due to injuries.
Slovenia played in the selection for the upcoming World Cup in the same group with the Croats and ended up fourth in the overall standings, not even getting into the play-offs. Matyazh Kek ‘s wards are going to apply a new scheme with two forwards in a friendly match, which is an experiment for the team. The Slovenes managed to beat the checkers at home (1:0) within the qualification, but lost heavily on the road (0:3), for which they want to take revenge.
Croats will also play according to an experimental scheme with three central defenders, which helped the drafts in the past, but has not been used for a long time. The strengthening of the Slovenes in the attacking line gives reason to believe that the team will spend more time in the opponent’s half of the field, and the opponent’s new defensive formations may not play reliably the first time.
Most likely, the friendly status of the match and the exotic game models of both coaches will have an impact on the course of the game and the confrontation will not become boring and goalless. In our opinion, the attacking potential of the players and their class will play their role and the match will bring a high final performance, which we propose to use.
Our prediction is over 2.5 goals. For such an outcome, 1xbet V.93 offers a coefficient of 2.27
Croatia needs more victory, which was openly stated by the main coach of the national team on the eve of the game. Slovenes can compete on equal terms for some time, but there is reason to believe that they will not be enough for the entire distance and the “checkers” class will take its toll. We assume that it is worth taking a closer look at the convincing victory of a more experienced team and suggest placing a bet on this.
Our second bet will be the Asian handicap (-1) on Croatia. Such a bet can be placed for 2.00
