      Tip Reasoning

      The qualification dynamic is not complicated for Croatia, nor should their end of it cause them much issue. However, they are far from guaranteed an automatic spot in Euro 2016. On Tuesday night they travel to Malta, where they’ll play Group H’s win-less minnows.

      It’s been a funny period for Croatia. They spoiled a strong position in the September fixtures drawing with Azerbaijan and losing 2-0 to Norway, but they bounced back resoundingly by thrashing Bulgaria 3-0 at home on Saturday night.

      Malta shouldn’t represent much of a challenge. They’ve scored just three goals in their nine qualifying games so far, though one of those was a well-deserved 1-1 draw in Bulgaria. They don’t concede goals in bunches, but they rarely have the ball enough to completely avoid conceding either. It should be just a matter of time for Croatia in terms of breaking them down.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Finding the right odds

      Sometimes tricky in these lopsided match-ups where there’s really no chance of an upset, especially considering what’s at stake for Croatia. However, we like the slight upset pick here with Croatia not necessarily piling it on, Malta are a decent defensive side and it’s not the easiest place to play.

      2. Previous results

      Malta might be win-less and we don’t see them adding to their points tally in this game, but they’ve actually only be involved in two games where more than two goals were scored during qualification. An early 3-0 defeat to Norway and a 2-2 draw against Azerbaijan. It’s considered the longer odds selection, but Under 2.5 might be the safer bet.

      3. Eyes elsewhere

      It’s hard to believe that the Croatian management won’t have one eye on the match-up between Italy and Norway, where a Norwegian defeat would potentially gift Croatia an automatic spot in Euro 2016.
