The history of head-to-head confrontations of these teams has eight fights, in seven cases the Croats celebrated the victory and in one meeting a draw was recorded.Bet Now!
Of course, the Croats are the main competitors of the Russian national team for the 1st place in group N. That, in principle, was understood after the draw.
In the opening round the Croats sensationally lost to Slovenia (0:1). Nevertheless, in the second qualifying match, the Drafts defeated Cyprus (1:0).
In the League of Nations, the Balkans did not perform well. The team finished that tournament in 3rd place in the group, losing at home to Portugal in the last round (2:3).
Before that, the "Joanites" could not win. They drew with the Faroe Islands, finally losing the opportunity to compete for access to League C in the League of Nations tournament.
Before the series without victories, Malta beat Andorra 3:1, Latvia 1:0 and played a goalless draw with the same Andorra.
Taking into account both friendly and official matches, the Malta national team has only two defeats in 10 cases.
Firstly, the Croats are in bad shape, which cannot be improved overnight, so you shouldn't expect that this time Luka Modric and the guys will please with a scattering of heads.
Secondly, the extreme face-to-face meetings of the Croats with the Maltese were not rich in goals. In the selection for UEFA EURO 2016 at the end of the matches, the scores were 2:0 and 0:1, respectively.
Our prediction is total under (3.5) for 1.74.
Place a bet on the line of 1xBet with odds of 1.74.
