CROATIA V BULGARIA
Following a 1-1 draw with Slovenia, Croatia will look to return to winning ways when they take on Bulgaria at Education City Stadium. Zlatko Dalic’s troops continue their preparations for the 2022 World Cup finals, and we are positive that the Croatia boss will use this match to test as many players as possible. Real Madrid ace Luka Modric should be given a rest, while all Pasalic, Vida, Vlasic, and Orsic are pushing for a start.
The Bulgarians, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Qatar. Yasen Petrov’s men obviously struggle at the back, and even though the Croats will mix the squad, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed from the trip to Al Rayyan. In their last meeting in a competitive match Croatia outplayed Bulgaria 3-0, and we predict that the history will repeat itself.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
FAROE V LIECHTENSTEIN
Following a boring goalless draw with Gibraltar, Faroe Islands will be aiming to give fans some cheer when they take on Liechtenstein on Tuesday afternoon. Faroe Islands aim to put an end to their eight-game winless run, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field. Swedish tactician Hakan Ericson could opt to make changes to the starting XI, with all Bjartalid, Nattestad, and Knudsen pushing for a start.
Liechtenstein, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 6-0 loss to Cape Verde, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. In their last meeting in a friendly Faroe Islands rolled over Liechtenstein 5-1, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the home team this time out.
Prediction: Both teams to score
ALBANIA V GEORGIA
Air Albania Stadium will host Tuesday’s friendly between Albania and Georgia. The Black Eagles aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Spain, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Georgia. Forward Myrto Uzuni is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute against La Roja, with all Ramadani, Manaj, and Asllani pushing for a start as well. The Georgians, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Since the former Soviet Republic looked solid at the back in Zenica, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals this time out. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Georgia’s last three games in all competitions. Keep in mind, though, that the two sides played out a 2-2 draw in their last meeting on the international stage.
Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
