Today's Top Two Tips for Austria vs Croatia

Croatia confirmed their place in the knockout stage of the Nations League by beating Denmark in midweek but will be keen to secure the top spot in order to earn a more favourable draw in the next round. Austria slipped to the bottom of the group after they lost in France and simply must win on Sunday if they are to stand any chance of avoiding relegation from League A.

Over 2.5 Goals

Three of the last six meetings between these two countries have produced over 2.5 goals and we're expecting another action-packed 90-minutes between the pair this weekend. Both Austria and Croatia have seen three of their last six matches in all competitions end with at least three goals being scored, adding further weight to our prediction.

Both Teams to Score

We're expecting both teams to score in this game as Austria need to push for the win in order to avoid relegation, while a win for Croatia would guarantee they finish top of the table. On two of the last three occasions that Austria have hosted Croatia, both teams have scored. Both teams have also scored in three of Austria's and three of Croatia's last six international matches.

Austria battling to avoid relegation

Austria would have been confident about their chances of coming away from Saint-Denis with something to show for their efforts as they went up against an understrength France side looking for their first win. Despite the first half ending goalless, a goal from Mbappe in the 56th-minute after good work from Giroud put the home side in front and fewer than 10-minutes later, Giroud got on the scoreboard to ensure France's first victory in the Nations League this season.

Austria Predicted Lineup: Pentz, Alaba, Trimmel, Lienhart, Wöber, Sabitzer, Schlager, Seiwald, Arnautović, Weimann & Onisiwo

Croatia vs Denmark was always going to be a tasty affair and neither time let us down on Thursday night. The first half was very close and competitive but ended goalless. However, 4-minutes after the restart, Sosa fired Croatia in front. Denmark always looked dangerous on the counter-attack and their best player, Eriksen, got the visitors back onto level terms in the 77th-minute. Croatia responded really well to the Danish equaliser, getting themselves back in front 2-minutes later through Majer with what turned out to be the winning goal for the home side.

Croatia Predicted Lineup: Livaković, Sosa, Juranović, Šutalo, Gvardiol, Modrić, Perišić, Brozović, Kovačić, Pašalić & Kramarić

Team News

Austria: Aleksandar Dragović, Konrad Laimer, Valentino Lazaro, Stefan Ilsanker, Florian Grillitsch and Saša Kalajdžić miss out for the visitors.

Croatia: Duje Ćaleta-Car and Josip Brekalo are the two main absentees for the home team.
