Both teams are coming out in a match that will give a perfect chance to prepare for the upcoming World Cup matches, the Croatian team will play against Nigeria and Senegal is their copy, while Senegal will meet Lewandowski and his Poland’s side, another European team.
Zlatko Dalić’s team did not perform very well in 2018 as they record lost from Peru and same results in the last match against Brazilia, winning between this two games against Mexico with a 1-0. In the last match with Brazil, two different faces of Croatia were seen, in the first part of the match they were perfect in defense and did not give Neymar and co. a chance to breathe, but in the second half they show the holes in their defence and Seleção scored two goals in their 2-0 win over The Blazers.
The Lions of Terranga are a very dangerous team with their perfect defence and their sharp counter-attacks organized by Sadio Mane will be a perfect test for the hosts. Senegal has only conceded 3 goals in the last 10 games and has kept a clean sheet seven times.
This will be their first meeting.
Croatia in front of their own public performs well and is unbeaten already 17 home games, in the last 5 matches allowed only two goals. On the other side, we see another world-class defense, but also a rather weak attack from Senegal. Since both teams will play at a lower pace, we can expect a few goals, but the winner is again Croatia for me with correct result 1:0.
