Croatia couldn’t score in Reykjavik and they struggled to break down 10-men Iceland after Skúlason sent off in the 50th minute. Croatia remains the heavy favourite for the game, but many signs show that their team and overall moral are easily vulnerable. Croatia lost their last three home international games. The new manager Niko Kovac hasn’t got so much time to fix the broken “attacking machine”. He will have the best selection available against Iceland tomorrow as on the first leg. Mandzukic, Olic, Rakitic and Modric are fantastic footballers, but it seems that something missing from the players when they are wearing the national jersey.
This clash will be the biggest football match in Iceland history. Many fans from Scandinavia are expecting to travel to Zagreb and fill the away sector. In the first game this squad proved that they are really good and the players can fight for each other Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson and his defence – without the suspended Skúlason - will have to prove again that they are ready for the World Cup.
I guess Lars Lagerbäck knows exactly what tactics will help them tomorrow. The time works for Iceland, and passage of it can turn the Croatian players and passionate supporters impatient. If Iceland can score a goal anytime that could be lethal for Croatia.
World Cup 2014 – Iceland still have the chance to qualify for their first major tournament. I would like to build my football prediction and betting on the weakness of the Croatian football. Bookmakers name Croatia the favourite and they handle Iceland as huge underdogs. Read more about my Croatia - Iceland preview.
