Competition: World Cup qualifiers
Market: Croatia to win against Turkey
Odds: 4/7 @ Bet 365
Croatia welcome Turkey to the Stadion Maksimir, Zagreb for Monday’s World Cup qualifier, and are favourites to come out on top just months after they dispatched of the visitors in this summer’s European Championships.
Croatia enjoyed a 1-0 win over Turkey in Euro 2016 in June, and are hoping they can repeat the feat to get their qualifying campaign off to a perfect start with only the top side sealing automatic progression to the 2018 finals.
Group I promises to be competitive with Croatia, Iceland, Ukraine, Turkey , Finland and Kosovo making up the table so every game will be crucial. Turkey are coming off the back of a forgettable summer tournament, but had been picking up results in non-competitive games.
The visitors suffered defeats to Croatia and Spain without reply in the group stages of Euro 2016, before winning their final game against Czech Republic. Turkey have drawn a recent friendly to Russia too so they’re not in bad shape. However, Croatia are no slouches and boast a strong squad capable of beating Turkey again.
Croatia are coming off the back of five wins and two draws from their last eight internationals, beating the likes of Spain in June. As a result, they’re being backed by Bet 365 with odds of 4/7 to see past Turkey at the Stadion Maksimir, Zagreb.
