Croatia vs Cyprus Preview:
The Blazers are one of the heavyweights of Group H along with Russia, and easily the best of the two as well – be it in terms of talent, or experience. They had appeared in the World Cup Final of 2018, and fell against the enormously and unfairly talented France.
They have a chip on their shoulder, and are determined to make something out of this golden generation of players they have got.
However, they are going through a troubling spell at the moment, and they seem unable to shake it off.
It does help that they are ranked 11th in the world, while their opposite number are placed 100th. On top of that, Zlatko Dalic’s men also have a good h2h record against this foe.
Going on, Nikos Kostenoglou’s men are on a terrible run at the moment, and are losing match after match. They are also conceding in plenty, and their performances in recent Euro as well as World Cup Qualifiers have been abysmal.
Not only did they fail to qualify to the 2016 & 2021 Euros, and the 2018 World Cup, but they now also have to go through the relegation playoffs in order to avoid being placed in League D in the UNL.
Likely, expect the wounded Croatia to make the most of this fixture, and secure a win this weekend.
HEAD TO HEAD:
- Only once have these two teams locked horns with each other in the past two decades, and then Modric and co recorded a 2-0 victory. Thus, they have a 100% winning record against this rival.

Dalic’s men lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Slovenia. In the meantime, Kostenoglou’s men were held to a goalless draw at home the past game week, by Slovakia.
Going on, the Blazers had won eight of their former eleven appearances at home, and had scored two or more goals in eight of these fixtures as well. In fact, since 2016, they have lost just thrice at home, and two of these teams were France and Portugal – reigning World and Euro champions.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 11 of their last 12 overall matches, and in the process had gone on a seven-game losing run. They were also winless in 20 of their past 23 road trips, and had lost a worrying 18 of these match-ups.
Taking into account these stats, expect Croatia to secure a good win this weekend, against the struggling Cyprus.
