Estonia Croatia betting prediction


Preview
Estonia and Croatia face , in what is to be the first friendly match of the year for both teams. There is no record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last time they met, on 25‑05‑2012, the match ended with the final score: Croatia (3‑1) Estonia. Estonia registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis of Estonia

This is the first friendly match of the year for the home team, after having played 8 friendlies last year, with the following final scores in the last 5: Antigua and Barbuda (0‑1) Estonia, St. Kitts and Nevis (1‑1) Estonia, Estonia (1‑1) Malta, Portugal (7‑0) Estonia and Estonia (2‑0) Andorra. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 7 goals scored and 33 conceded; against 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 18 goals scored and 7 conceded. They come to this match after a away draw against Cyprus by (0‑0). Estonia has won 4, tied 3 and lost 3 of the last 10 home matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 13 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 6 of their 17 goals between minutes (46'‑60').

Estonian team starts this match with a goalless draw against Cyprus in a qualifying match for the 2018 World Cup. Before that, the home team won a victory against the selection of Antigua and Barbuda, by 0-1 in a game in which Marin scored the only goal of the team. In this friendly it is anticipated that the coach Martin Reim play in the usual 4-2-3-1 privileging the defensive organization and the counterattacks. In addition it will be visible that the Estonian uses the corridors to create danger to the enemy: Marin is a very fast and excellent actor in the transport of the ball. Even so, we emphasize that Estonia has great difficulties in both sectors, since it scored on average 1 goal and suffered on average 2.4 goals per game.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Aksalu, R. Klavan, K. Mets, K. Kallaste, N. Baranov, T. Teniste, J. Toomet, M. Käit, S. Luts, A. Dmitrijev, H. Anier.

Analysis of Croatia

The away team plays its first friendly match of the year, after having played 5 friendlies last year, with the following final scores: Northern Ireland (0‑3) Croatia, Croatia (10‑0) San Marino, Croatia (1‑0) Moldova, Hungary (1‑1) Croatia and Croatia (2‑0) Israel. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 26 goals scored and 12 conceded; against 12 wins and 3 draws at their stadium, with 42 goals scored and 4 conceded. In their last match, for the WC Qualification Europe, they got a home win against Ukraine by (1‑0). In the last 10 away matches Croatia has won 6, tied 3 and lost 1. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 12 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 11 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 9 of them.

Croatians are set to play in this game after being given another win for the qualifying round for the next World Cup with a 1-0 victory at home to Ukraine: Kalinic made the only challenge. Usually the coach Ante Cacic plays in 4-2-3-1 being Kalinic the most offensive reference of the equipment. However, it is important to emphasize that the main highlight of the team is the midfielder Modric: this player has great technique and pass quality. Still, we emphasize that the Croatian team has enormous competence in the offensive organization and maintenance of possession of the ball.

Confirmed Lineup: L. Kalinić, M. Lešković, M. Mitrović, D. Vida, I. Perišić, M. Kovačić, M. Rog, F. Bradarić, A. Kramarić, D. Čop, M. Pjaca.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match will be the quiet triumph of the Croatian national team. Despite playing away from home, we believe Croatia will seize their strong team to win yet another victory, this time in a qualifying match for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. This will hopefully win Croatia with some ease over selection of Estonia, team that has revealed great weaknesses in their style of play. This betting suggestion has expired...
