In order to close the football year with a victory, this Tuesday the Croatian national team jumps to the stadion of the Stadion Aldo Drosina in Pula where he will be visited by a modest Georgian national team, in a friendly game.
The current runners-up of the World met their goal of entering the final stage of this special edition of the 2020 Euro Cup, after winning their group with 17 points, drawing a five-point momentum difference over their closest pursuer such as Hungary.
It must be said that despite having their classification secured, those led by Zlatko Dalic never took their feet off the accelerator and so last weekend they beat Slovakia 3-1 and thus maintained a five-game streak without losing where Three of them ended in victories.
And although, it is presumed that for this game the Croatian coach decides to give rest to some players and give minutes to those who have had little soccer activity, because they will want to close the football year with a victory, and what better to do before their hobby where he has only fallen once in his last twenty-eight games where twenty-four of them ended in victories, counting here the games in all competitions.
For its part, it can be said that the performance shown in recent months by those led by Vladimir Weiss has been interesting, to the point that it has only fallen once in its last five games, and that defeat fell last weekend when they lost for the minimum difference in his visit to Switzerland, in a game that was defined in the last thirteen minutes, with Itten’s goal.
With this result, Georgia finished in the penultimate place of the group with eight points in the same number of games, and in this, which is its last game of the year, it hopes to maintain that regularity and thus say goodbye with a good result.
Of course, Georgia needs to put a little more effort in their games as a visitor, where they have only added one victory in their last six games and this one came in their visit to a selection with little football level such as Gibraltar, while when he visited level selections such as Denmark did not have a good time and lost by a forceful 5-1 and we do not believe that the story will be different this Tuesday against a Croatia that maintains the basis of that selection that ended in second place in the last World Cup in Russia 2018.
