Croatia welcome the visitors Azerbaijan in the Euro Qualification – Round 1. The match will be held on Thursday, March, 21st, at the Stadion Maksimir (Zagreb).
After the Russian Cup-2018, the world vice-champions Croatia dropped out the Nations League’s League A. That said, they faced England that they knocked out in the Cup semi-final – the opponents obviously looked to take revenge and settled for meetings with the Croats in a special way. Anyways, Croatia drawed against them at home. Also, they faced Spain.
Azerbaijan learn to play, winning Faroes, San Marino, and Latvia and drawing against Malta, Kosovo, and North Macedonia. So, they’ve been progressing somewhat, but not to the extent to present any serious challenge to the vice-champions, yet on their side.

There is no way the opponents can be compared. There is a gulf in class, both the team and individual one. The only thing that Azerbaijan may set off (and especially the true Azerbaijani Richard may) is their commitment. You can’t take that from them – the team will resist as long as they can, and they may even end in a goal. The sole desire and enthusiasm is not enough though. One also needs qualification, and the hosts сompletely better in this – they will demonstrate their advantage, registering a victory in the opener. Most probably, this will be a confident win. Four of five Croatia’s last matches were overscoring. The hosts managed to ship three goals even to Spain in the last encounter at home. Why not to do same against Azerbaijan? Croatia are likely to net tomorrow – even Kosovo made four goals to Azerbaijan in the previous encounter. Mind the homeside boast the striker Kramaric who scored thirteen goals for Hoffenheim, the halfback Rakitic who regularly assists in Barcelona, and the Internazionale’s halfback Perisic and the best 2018 FIFA men’s player Real Madrid’s midfielder Modric who scored to France in the World Cup final.
Considering all the above, we expect the hosts to attain a win in the entertaining match that will produce three goals at least.
Prediction for the match: Croatia to win & Over 2.5 goals.
