Croatia v Serbia Football Match – 22.03.2013 – UEFA World Cup Qualification Match Preview, Prediction, Squad Info
Croatia v Serbia football match will be in 22.03.2013 at Zagreb, Croatia for UEFA World Cup Qualification match. Croatia National Football Team had very good performance at international tournaments past years. I believe their performance will go on this year too. They are at second poisition in group but they have fixture advantage at the moment. Their only rival is Belgium at group stage. They got a draw against Belgium at group matches and they have won rest of matches. They have beaten Macedonia at two matches and Wales. They have scored 6 matches and conceded 2 matches in their last 4 matches in group. Now they will play against their rival nation Serbia in football. Croatia has played last friendly match against South Korea and they had amazing performance in that match. Igor Stimac has called up Croatia squad for this match. Stipe Pletikosa, Sarijo Srna, Vedran Corluka, Niko Kranjcar, Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic, Ivan Perisic, Mladen Petric, Ivica Olic, Eduardo, Mario Madzukic has been called-up for Croatia squad. Danijel Pranjic has retired from international football and he won’t play in this match.
Serbia National Football Team is underachieving this year and I don’t think that they will qualify from group stage for World Cup. Serbia has 1 win, 1 draw and 2 loses in their last 4 matches in group. They have beaten Cyprus in their last friendly match with 3-1 score in away match. This match will be the hardest match for them in group stages. They have lost against Macedonia and Belgium, won against Wales and got draw against Scotland. If they manage to get any points from this match I believe their chance will still continue for getting second position at the least. Head coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has called up Serbian players for this match. Branislav Ivanovic from Chelsea, Aleksandar Kolarov from Manchester City, Neven Subotic from Borussia Dortmund, Zdravko Kuzmanovic from Inter Milan will be in Serbia squad for Croatia match. Nenad Tomovic had a red card in Macedonia match and he won’t be in squad in this match.
Match Prediction: Croatia Wins
