Croatia’s top stars along with several other regulars will be missing a friendly match against Russia. Luka Modrić, Ivan Rakitić are names whose absences would harm the strongest sides in the world so you can imagine what it will do to Croatian squad. Along with them they’ll have to do without Kovačić, 1st keeper Subašić and defender Ćorluka. In attack they will rely on Italian duo Kalinić (Fiorentina, in form) and Mandžukić (Juventus, out of form). Defensive line will see few debitants.
Croatian team is shaken with repetitive coruption scandals and are being boycotted by a vast majority of fans back home. With all the burdens with the lineup and poor atmosphere 2.25+ available is a solid bet for us.
SCTip: Bet on Russian to win at 2.25+ 5/10
