Greece vs Croatia 12 November 2017: World Cup Qualifier Preview and Predictions

Croatia takes on Greece in the second leg of their tie to determine which team makes it to the World Cup in Russia next year. The first leg saw this fixture become very interesting as Croatia had a crushing win at home. This time the teams meet in Athens and Greek side will hope that they can make a comeback.

Croatia had a big game at home and they will be feeling very comfortable at the moment as they head to Athens. This will not be a game that was as easy as at home but with the lead, they have at the moment, they will not be very worried. That being said, this game is not over until the end of this game so it will be important for the away side to play their best football.

Greece, on the other hand, will come out and try to cause an upset. It can be expected that the home side has huge support and that is something that will get the team going. I am expecting a very attacking game from Greece since that is the only way that they are going to have a chance. With that in mind, it is hard to predict which team will win so I think the result is a bet which we should definitely avoid in this game.

The value in this game is in the number of goals. Greece will be playing attacking so they should score and it will also give Croatia chances to score as well. As a result, I like the over 2.5 goals as the bet for this match.
