      Analysis: Croatia vs San Marino (04 June 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: June 02 2016, 17:59 »

      Croácia and San Marino face at (Desconhecido), in a friendly match. This is the 4º friendly match of the year for Croácia, after friendly matches against Moldova, Hungary e Israel. As for San Marino, this is the first friendly match of the year. There is no record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last time they met, on 05‑09‑2001, the match ended with the final score: San Marino (0‑4) Croácia. Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

      Analysis of Croatia

      This is the 4º friendly match of the year for the home team, after having registered the following final scores in the previous friendlies: Croatia (1‑0) Moldova, Hungary (1‑1) Croatia e Croatia (2‑0) Israel. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 11 wins, 1 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. Croácia has won 8, tied 1 and lost 1 of the last 10 home matches.

      Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In the last 5 home matches for all competitions there are 1 periods that stand out: they have scored 4 of their 7 goals between minutes (0'‑15').

      Croacia heads into this match motivated after a 1-0 home win against Moldavia. Kramaric scored the winning goal in the 9th minute. They usually play in a 4-3-3 formation, prioritising quick transitions. Perisic, Kalinic and Pjaca are the 3 forwards. The defense should be Strinic, Vida, Corluka and Vrsaljko. Their best player is Modric.

      Analysis of San Marino

      The away team plays its first friendly match of the year, after a single friendly match played last year, which ended with the final score: Liechtenstein (1‑0) San Marino. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 0 wins, 0 draws and 15 losses in away matches, with 1 goals scored and 75 conceded; against 1 wins, 2 draws and 12 losses at their stadium, with 6 goals scored and 55 conceded. In their last match, for the EC Qualification, they got a home loss against a Slovenia by (0‑2). In the last 6 away matches San Marino has won 0, tied 0 and lost 6.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, and their offense hasn’t been one of their best features, as they haven’t scored any goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. In fact, they haven’t opened up the score in the last 11 matches. In 11 matches, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

      San Marino heads into this match with low motivation after a 2-0 loss at home, against Slovenia, a match for the qualifiers. Forward Andy Selva is great at looking for open spaces and getting open. Manuel Battistini and Valentini are the two players responsible for supporting their lone forward. As they are a weak team, they usually lower their lines and try to use counter attacks.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most probable scenario for this match will be for Croatia to win. This is a friendly match, but Croatia has a lot more quality than their opponents. We expect the home team to impose their playing style and take advantage of the flaws that San Marino has.
