Wales v Croatia betting preview
Wales have won their last four consecutive matches on home soilWales sit fourth in European Championship qualifying Group F with only Azerbaijan below them but they are three points adrift of the top two with three games left to play. Plus, all three of the teams ahead of Wales have played one additional match. Ryan Giggs' men drew 1-1 in Slovakia on Thursday, meaning they must win their remaining contests to have any chance of progression. The reverse match in Croatia saw Wales losing 2-1. Since then, the Dragons have recorded 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. In the last 7 outings, their defense has conceded more than one goal only in that loss to the Croats.
Gareth Bale is expected to play as false nine up front. He will be supported by two promising young wingers, Daniel James, Harry Wilson and Jonathan Williams. As a result, Kieffer Moore could drop down to the substitutes' bench after leading the line last time out. Aaron Ramsey wasn't fit enough to make the squad for the trip to Slovakia and remains a major doubt. Giggs must decide whether to keep faith with a young backline, with Neil Taylor an option at left-back if Ben Davies is moved into the middle. Anyway, Joe Allen and Joe Morrell are likely to feature from the off in the middle of the park.
Croatia are struggling on the travel - just 1 win in the last 7 away matchesCroatia are three points clear in Group E with two games left to play and can secure a place at the Euro 2020 by winning this contest. The 3-0 triumph over Hungary on Thursday was a statement performance but we should not forget that last month the Vetreni went four away games without picking up a win and they were even held to a shock draw with Azerbaijan. Their defense has kept just three clean sheets in 18 fixtures – conceding 16 times in the last seven on the road. As to direct encounters, Croatia have won the last four matches with Wales.
Marcelo Brozovic is suspended for the visitors and should be replaced by Mateo Kovacic or Nikola Vlasic. Former Ballon D'Or Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic will retain their starting berth in midfield. Bruno Petkovic scored a brace last time out and will spearhead the attack, flanked by Ivan Perisic and Ante Rebic. In defense, Karlo Bartolec is an option at right-back if Tin Jedvaj makes way from the starting XI. Dejan Lovren, Domagoj Vida and Borna Barisic should complete the four man backline.
Wales v Croatia Starting LineupsWales (4-2-3-1); Roberts, Lockyer, Rodon, Davies; Ampadu, Allen; H. Wilson, Williams, James; Bale
Croatia (4-3-3): Livakovic; Jedvaj, Lovren, Vida, Barisic; Modric, Kovacic, Rakitic; Perisic, Rebic, Petkovic
