Kosovo vs Croatia
European Qualifiers – 2018 World Cup
Date: Thursday, 6th October 2016
Kick-off: 19:45 UK
Venue: Stadium Loro Borici, Shkoder.
Battle for top spot in Group I of the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifiers goes on as Kosovo host Croatia at Stadiumi Loro Borici.
The two teams are with just 1 point, same with other teams in the group as they drew their first games. Kosovo have been in less action this year, they have played just 3 games throughout the year. Also they are unbeaten in the 3 games with a win and 2 draws. They will be keen on keeping their good form as they hope to avoid defeat in this fixture.
Unlike their host, Croatia have played a lot of games this year, they have been involved in 9 games this year. They have won 5 games this year, drawn 3 and lost 1 which was against Portugal in the knockout stage. A win in this game will send them top of the group table depending on outcome of other group games.
Kosovo vs Croatia: Head to Head Statistics
Both teams have never played against each other in the past, thus this is the first game between the two teams.
Kosovo vs Croatia: Prediction
Croatia are the favourites in this fixture, despite both teams being in same phase of form. Croatia’s experience and better shaped squad puts them ahead of Kosovo. Croatia have won 2 of their last 5 games, drawn 2 and lost 1 which was against Portugal in the Euro Tournament.
Kosovo have won 2 of their last 4 games and drawn 2. They have scored at least 2 goals in 3 of their last 4 games. Also, they have kept clean sheets in 2 of their last 4 games,
Croatia has all it takes to win this game, but i expect a low out come of goals in this game. My correct score prediction is 0-1
Kosovo vs Croatia: Tips
Croatia to win at 1.50 (1/2)
Under 2.5 goals at 1.87 (7/8).
