Wales News and Form

Wales played out a 1-1 draw in Slovakia on Thursday, having taken the lead in the first half of the fixture. It does leave them within touching distance of the top two, but there isn’t going to be an easy path to secure automatic qualification for next year’s Finals. Wales do have a game in hand though and because of Slovakia not playing in this round of action, Wales could jump up the table if they get a win.

But that win is going to be hard to get against a good Croatia side. Wales have only produced five goals in the group so far from their five games. They do hold the joint-best defensive record in Group E though along with Croatia. Wales have won their last four home games, all of those by a one-goal margin. They have remained undefeated in their last nine home qualifiers, conceding just one goal in their last five.

Wales v Croatia Head to Head

Croatia were 2-1 winners in the first group meeting
Wales have lost their last four against Croatia
Croatia have scored exactly two goals in each of their last four against Wales
Wales are D1 L4 in their overall head to head with the Croatians

Croatia News and Form

Croatia have posted a W4 D1 L1 record in the group, holding a goal difference of +8. They eased to a 3-0 win over Hungary on Thursday and are now sat in a very strong position with only the two games to play in the group. So it’s likely that they are going to be occupying one of the two automatic qualification places. Will they throw a spanner in the works of Wales’ ambitions?

Croatia took a 2-1 home win over Wales when they met earlier in the campaign, but it is worth a closer look at their away form. Their 4-0 group win in Slovakia, is the only victory that they have taken in their last six away games played (D2 L3). So they have not been travelling particularly well, which should give Wales some hope. Croatia have won just two of their last seven European Championship away qualifiers.

Who will win – Wales v Croatia Predictions

Wales may be able to hang on for a point in this one. Croatia haven’t been producing results away from home, and Wales do have a bit of home form behind them. It’s likely to be a low-scoring game, but the hosts can frustrate the Croatians.
