Reasons for betting on Turkey vs Croatia tip

Turkey will have a tough match against Croatia. If the hosts do not win in this event, they will out from the race for the World Cup in Russia. However, if they win, things are going to be very complicated in group I. Having in mind that Croatia and Turkey have quite a rivalry, we believe that this encounter is going to be one of the main events of the day.

Turkey overview

The home team has to heal quickly after the game in Ukraine in which they suffered a defeat, 0-2. It is obvious that the Turks were damaged with some decisions by the referees, but that is a closed story, and they have to turn to the upcoming match. This loss snapped the 5-game streak without a defeat.
When playing at home, Turkey is solid, and so far they collected 7 points in 3 matches. In all those games, the hosts scored at least two goals, and on two occasions they kept a clean sheet. The game against Croatia will be the last chance for them to maintain the tempo with the other rivals from the group.

Croatia overview

The guests in this match had more trouble than anyone expected against Kosovo. Domagoj Vida scored a decisive goal 15 minutes before the end, and removed a terrific pressure from his team. Currently, Croatia is first in the Group I, and they have 2 points more than the second placed Ukraine and three points more than Iceland. After 3 games in a row in which they conceded at least one goal, they kept their net intact against Kosovo. After two games away from Croatia, Luka Modric and the boys have 2 victories and a defeat against Iceland. A very tough schedule is in front of them, and Croats need to stay unbeaten in this game. They have to travel to Ukraine in the last round, and the points from Turkey could be the crucial ones.

Head to head matches

Croatia has 5 games in a row without a defeat against Turkey. During that time we have seen 3 draws and 2 victories by the Croatians. Only one game saw 3 or more goals, and 3 of them ended with both teams not to score.

So far in history, we witnessed 8 encounters between Turkey and Croatia. The hosts in this match have only one victory. On 4 occasions games ended without a winner and Croatia won 3 times.
The games are very intense, and we often see many yellow cards and some incidents on the field.

Prediction for Turkey vs Croatia tip

This is very significant game for both sides, and because of this, we do not think that they are going to attack right from the start. Instead, the coaches will probably initiate the game more cautiously. It is why a draw at the half time is our first choice.

For the second one, we would choose between 2 and 3 goals. We do not expect to see many chances, but a moderate number of goals is pretty realistic.

Great bookmaker and odds. Been playing with them for while, if you are good player they treat you well!
Took my real money when it stated I was…Took my real money when it stated I was playing with my bonus money. At no point did I click to play with real money. Deposited £200 to receive £200 bonus. Continuous loses of my bonus money on the spins led me to blackjack (£275 in my account) I placed 2 £25 bets and lost. I tried to withdraw my real money only to see my account has been reduced to £25. At this point they conveniently switched my loses from bonus money to real money.After 1hr on live chat we move on by emails. 4 days later a reply from customer service that if you place a bet higher than £10 (which I placed 2 £25 bets on blackjack) you lose your bonus (£200) clause 10.1.Honestly what absolute nonsense, what kind of casino limits your bets at £10? Absolute scam
Joined up are a promo email and then they suspended my account mid hedge, Cost me £50 which when I told them they didn't give a dam. Very very poor Customer Service. Avoid at all costs
