Croatia v Senegal Prediction & Betting Tips – 8th June 20186th June 2018 / lee
Croatia v Senegal International Friendly, 8th June – 5.00 p.m.
This should be an interesting friendly between two nations who are heading off to the World Cup in the summer. Croatia lost over the weekend in a game against Brazil but looked very competitive nonetheless. Senegal meanwhile will be looking to find their shooting boots ahead of some challenges at the World Cup which could even involve a game against England.

Croatia v Senegal Betting Tips
Croatia then had a good workout on the weekend against Brazil who are the outright favourites to win 2018 World Cup. Croatia lost the game 2-0 but they did compete very well and looked strong at the same time and they were not afraid to mix it up physically. They have to deal with Argentina, Iceland and Nigeria in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup and they may well need to call on that physicality in a group which looks as if it could be tight and tense. Croatia does have plenty of creative talent in their ranks and they have plenty of experience in the midfield area which is where their real strength is.
This will be the first-ever meeting between Croatia and Senegal and Croatia with just be a little bit concerned that the goals have not been flowing for them recently having scored only one goal in their last four fixtures (W1 D1 L2). So is not been great and it does make sense to look under 2.5 goals at bet 365 for 4/7 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:22 p.m. on June 4th, 2018). On the other side of the fence Senegal have been struggling in front of goal too and with the Croatians looking stronger of the two units it could be worth backing Croatia to get a win on the board with a clean sheet.
With that in mind a Croatia 1-0 option in the bet 365 correct score market is at 9/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:22 p.m. on June 4th, 2018). Senegal played out a 0-0 draw against Luxembourg on the weekend as they opened their World Cup warm up. That will have been a bit of a disappointing result for them and following this they will get in a game against South Korea before heading to the World Cup. Senegal have drawn their last three games and they are unbeaten in their last 11 but have drawn seven of those.
They have failed to hit the back of the net in their last two games and you have to consider that they have failed to beat Luxembourg and Uzbekistan through the sequence of their last three fixtures. Senegal have to take on Poland, Columbia and Japan in Group H at the 2018 World Cup, and if they were to get through to the next round they will be playing (more likely than not) either Belgium in the round of 16. They have been struggling in their last three friendly matches against some largely weaker opposition, can they get some confidence behind them ahead of the World Cup?
Who will win – Croatia v Senegal Predictions
Croatia actually put themselves about pretty well they did a good job in patches against Brazil (who just look to be a different level to everyone the moment), so the Europeans should be able to collect a friendly victory in this one and more likely than not, we would expect it to be with a clean sheet as well.
