Preview: Wales vs Croatia
Wales will be looking to take down Croatia and try to pull level with the Vatreni as they aim to put themselves in contention for a runners-up spot in their group. The Dragons have had mixed fortunes so far as they aim to qualify for their second straight EURO 2020 tournament, and find themselves in a very disappointing fourth place after a frustrating one-all draw against Slovakia.
For the hosts, it's win or nothing. If they lose, Croatia will secure their spot at EURO 2020. Wales will then have to battle it out with Slovakia and Hungary for the runners-up spot, and given that those two teams are already ahead of them in the table, Ryan Giggs's side are at a huge loss.
Croatia, for their part, have had their ups and downs since shocking the world with their run all the way to the 2018 World Cup final, but Zlatko Dalic's side have done enough to stay ahead of the chasing pack, and with their solid record against Wales - they've never lost in five meetings - are looking like the favorites to come out on top here. Will they be able to book their tickey, or will Wales finally overcome their Croatian hoodoo?
