  • Venue: Ernst Happel Stadion

Croatia will be hoping to take advantage of the Denmark-France tie as they take a trip to Austria as the group leaders in the Nations League on Sunday. The Luka Modric-led side has won their last three games now, beating Denmark twice and France once to settle at 10 points at the top of the table. With a win on Sunday, they will most probably secure their place as the first eliminator side from the A1 lot (that is if, France beats Denmark on Sunday too). Well, on the other hand, Austria has been the punching bag for the other three nations in this batch. Their only win in this group came as they beat their next opponents, Croatia itself, on matchday one by three goals to nil. Will Austria beat Croatia again to spice up the competition once again? Time shall tell.

Austria vs Croatia Betting Tips: BTTS

Croatia's away record off late has been too good. The World Cup runners-up in 2018 have beaten France and Denmark with clean sheets after destroying Malta by 7 goals to 1 in November last year. On the other hand, Austria has failed to win both their home games in the Nations League this year, in addition to a draw against Scotland back in March. The hosts will score though, for sure, as they have maintained their spree of offensive success in each of the last 6 home games and running. We have three great options for this game from a betting point of view: BTTS, Over 2.5 and a Croatia win. With respect to the likeliness, we would go for both teams scoring in this game as our preferred choice. Our final prediction will be a 2-1 win for the away side.

Austria Team News

It has been an Austrian problem that whenever Marcel Sabitzer has failed to perform, the nation has lost points in the European footballing landscape - and this has been the story of their Nations League campaign so far. The Bayern Munich midfielder will be hoping to make amends against Croatia as he was one of the worst players on the pitch against France. But, with Luka Modric and company in direct contact, the same seems unfruitful. Marko Arnautovic will be one player heavily under the spotlight on Sunday as he seems Austria's lone hope when it comes to scoring against the Croatians. David Alaba's back four has had trouble defending against the other elite backlines, and are expected to remain unchanged again for Sunday. Overall, Sabitzer and Arnautovic will be our two Austrian players to watch this weekend.

Croatia Team News

The golden era of Croatia is coming to an end, but it seems a new crop of Croatians is rising up to the occasion. The defensive pair of Borna Sosa and Josko Gvardiol has been on the teamsheet for quite some time now, and they are certainly enabling Luka Modric to leave this side in good hands. Sosa was even the scorer against Denmark in the previous game, despite starting as a left-back on Thursday night. Another key player, who seems to be a doubt for Croatia on the weekend, is Ivan Perisic. Tottenham Hotspur's new signing, Perisic can play literally any position on the left flank and that is his USP for every team he performs in. Sosa, Gvardiol and Perisic will be our three key players to watch from Croatia this Sunday.
