Stadium: Stadion Poljud (Split)
In the first round of qualifying for Euro 2024, the Croatian national team will face the Welsh national team at home. The Balkans in the pair are quoted as notable favorites, and it is difficult to argue with the lineup for the game, given the recent results of the opponents.Get Your Sign-Up Bonus!
Once again, the Croatians had tremendous success at the World Cup, winning bronze medals in Qatar—a fantastic success for the Balkan team, which is currently experiencing a generational change. Remember that the Knights played seven matches in Qatar and lost only in the semifinals to Argentina, which subsequently won the Mundial. We haven't seen the Croats since their third-place game against Morocco on December 17. But we doubt anything will change much in the team's playing style because Zlatko Dalic is still in his position, which means the game concept won't change.
The Welsh also participated in the Mundial in Qatar, but their performance at the tournament was extremely weak. In three games, the Dragons got one point against the Americans, then lost to Iran 0:2 and England 0:3. Before that, the Brits failed in the Nations League, scoring only one point in six games in Group 4 of League A and dropping out of League B. Overall, the Welsh team has an eight-match winless streak, with only two draws and six defeats.
Expert Betting Tips
Despite the change of generations, the Croatian national team is a top team in Europe and the world. On the other hand, the Welsh have visibly dropped in the last couple of seasons, evident not only at the World Cup in Qatar but also at the group stage of the 2022/23 Nations League before the Mundial. The Welsh have obvious problems with creating and realizing chances. We have noted that the Dragons have only scored one goal against their opponents in their last four games. We believe that the Welsh team will not be able to create significant difficulties for the third team in the world. Moreover, Croatia will achieve a dry victory on Saturday.
