Croatia vs Greece by FairPlayBet

World Cup qualifications. After group stage was finished, we have now this additional playoffs. Two legs, aggregate system will be played. This is first leg in meeting between Croatia and Greece. Croatia is more respected team and obviously favorite to qualify for World Cup but IMO this team is a little bit overrated in this first game. I mean 1.40 for home win is simply to low for such game.


Croatia is not on level they were in some previous competitions. After all the fact they fired head coach before final crucial round in group stage (away 0:2 win in Ukraine), show the best this team has not played well. Beside Ukraine, the main rivals and the group were Iceland and Turkey.


Croatia at the end finished second. Most of the Croatian games were tied, low scoring. 3-2-0 at home and every time with under 2.5. You won't see the Croats wining here more than 1:0, 2:0. Even against Kosovo it was only 1:0.


Today I think it will be the same. First of all, I'm not convinced too much they will win but if they do, most likely it is 1:0 score.


Have in mind Croatia has plenty absent players. Not to mention every single one but those most important are Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid, Marko Pjaca from Juventus. Dejan Lovren from Liverpool probably will play but he is not at 100%.


As for Greece, they also knew for much better days in the past. To be honest, I did not expect to see them among top 2 in their group although it was easy group. Yes, someone would say Belgium was there and really they are outstanding side but I say easy group cause beside Bosnia & Hercegovina there was not any other serious rival for second place. At the end Greece took it. The results of their games usually were quite similar with Croatia, so tied and low scoring. On the road against two toughest opponent in group, Greece did a good job, 0:0 in Bosnia and probably their most respected result, 1:1 draw away in Belgium.


Greece is also not complete. Mantalos and Donis are injured, Manolas suspended.


Expected result something like 0:0, 1:0, 1:1, 2:0.
