Tip Ukraine - Croatia
Iceland went top of the group on Friday with a 3-0 win in Turkey. With a final home game against Kosovo who have just one point from nine games, Iceland look almost certain to win the group and reach their first ever World Cup finals. That leaves Ukraine and Croatia to battle over second place but if either team wins this match and Iceland fail to win, then the victor will top the group. Ukraine are only behind Croatia on goal difference and have won ten points out of twelve at home with only one goal conceded. They have only lost one of their last six games but that was at home to Malta which is slightly concerning. In World Cup qualifiers though they are unbeaten in their last nine home matches. Croatia saw their automatic qualifications hit when Finland got a 90th minute equalizer on Friday costing them two vital points and leaving them with just four points from their last four matches in this group. Away form is a worry with two defeats already and six of their seven goals in four games were scored against Kosovo. In away games they have one win in their last six games over 90 minutes and have lost their last two away matches in this group. Ukraine have the home advantage and can get the three points.
