Croatia vs Israel Predictions

Croatia managed to sneak through to the European Championships in France in the summer with a narrow win over Malta in the last group match, meaning that they pipped Norway to 2nd position by a single point.

Their qualification margin may have been narrow, but they deserved it. They only trailed Italy by four points when the final totals were tallied up, and they only lost one of their ten qualifying matches on their road to France.

They followed up their qualification success with a friendly win in Russia back in November, and Croatia are even more formidable on home turf. They have won six and drawn one of their last seven matches at home, with their last defeat coming in a World Cup Qualifier back in 2013.

Unlike their hosts, Israel will not be in France in the summer. They finished 4th in Group B with 13 points to their name, four adrift of 3rd placed Bosnia-Herzegovina and eight behind Wales in the automatic qualification positions.

They lost their final two group games against Cyprus and Belgium after they earned an impressive draw in Wales. This takes their record to five defeats and one win in their last seven outings.

Away from home it looks a bit better, with three wins, two defeats, and a draw in their last six away matches. However, their three wins came against the likes of Cyrpus, Andorra, and Honduras, and they only result that can be considered impressive is their draw at Wales.

Four of Croatia’s last five home games have seen them score at least three goals, with a total of 19 goals being scored during this period. Israel managed to conceded three apiece against Bosnia and Belgium recently, and six of their last seven away days have seen at least three goals. This makes odds of 21/20 for Over 2.5 Goals look good value for money, and I’m backing a 3-1 Croatia Win at 12/1.
