Match Prediction-SPAIN VS NORWAY BETTING TIPS AND MATCH PREDICTION
For some time, it seemed as if Wales were nearing the end of an era, which was confirmed when Bale hung up his boots following the World Cup. That is a significant blow to this team in the short term, but it will only encourage greater teamwork now that they cannot rely on the individual brilliance of their greatest-ever player.
After eight consecutive defeats and a disastrous World Cup campaign, that will be required if they are not to fall further down the international pecking order. While this group is better than it could have been, there will be an acknowledgement that Robert Page’s team is fighting for second place behind their upcoming hosts. That is especially true given Wales’ lack of a win over Croatia, having lost three consecutive away games since a 1-1 draw in 2002.
Croatia Playing XI
Livakovic; Juranovic, Sutalo, Gvardiol, Sosa; Modric, Brozovic, Kovacic; Vlasic, Kramaric, Perisic
Croatia faced the prospect of eras coming to an end after finishing third in Qatar, but players like Luka Modric and Ivan Perisic have remained active on the international stage since Dejan Lovren announced his retirement from the national team.
Zlatko Dalic will be overjoyed with the pair providing invaluable experience to the rest of the squad as they attempt to win another major tournament. The Checkered Ones enter this qualifying campaign having only lost one of their previous 13 matches in all competitions, to eventual world champions Argentina in the semi-final stage. Croatia has only lost once at home since the start of 2021, highlighting the magnitude of Wales’ task as they face the second-best performing European side in Qatar.
Wales Playing XI
Ward; Mepham, Rodon, Cabango; Roberts, Ramsey, Ampadu, Wilson, Williams; James, Moore
Match Prediction for Croatia vs Wales
Wales has other quality players to call on, but none of them can match the quality that Bale provided. The middle five should be as expected, with Ethan Ampadu starting in defence and Aaron Ramsey captaining the team. With Brennan Johnson ruled out due to injury, Daniel James is expected to partner Kieffer Moore in attack. They may fall short against quality opposition, leading us to predict a relatively easy victory for the home team.
Croatia 2-0 Wales, predicted by us.
