World Cup 2018 Qualifiers
Group I’s third game of the day is also the most interesting. The two league leaders, Croatia and Iceland, both with 7 points, go head to head in what is the most interesting game of the day, in our opinion. What can we expect to see and who will emerge victorious in the end?

The home side is, without a doubt, one of the better teams on the continent in this moment. 7 points, 8-1 goal difference, and very good football all show the form the Croatians will hope to prolong after the game against Iceland.
Euro 2016 was also a big success for them, especially considering how well their game worked. They are now looking to win the group and qualify directly for the World Cup, and if they manage to maintain their current form, it’s going to be very hard for anyone to stop them. Madzukici and Perisic are their go-to goal scorers at the moment.
On the other hand, Iceland’s stature has completely changed in recent years. After an awesome qualifying session for Euro 2016, coupled with even more great performances at the final tournament, the small Nordic country now has 7 points from their first three games and has shown some good football.
Their determination, discipline, and strength eclipse their overall lack of technique, while they also have some players which are capable of producing magic. A World Cup presence would be a dream come true for this generation, but they need a good result against Croatia for that.
Croatia vs Iceland Betting Tips
As much as we love Iceland and want them to do well, our instinct tells us that Croatia will win this game.
Over 2,5 is another great idea – probably even better than the solo home win, while “both to score” is another idea to take into consideration.
To sum up, we’re looking at a game with goals, which we think Croatia will win, and Madzukici will be on the scoresheet.
Both Teams To Score & Over 2.5: Yes @ 2.60 or 8/5 with 32Red
Croatia Win & Both To Score @ 3.50 or 5/2
