Wales face the World Cup runners-up in Cardiff on Sunday, and Pandora Hughes is backing them to earn a point in another cross-sport weekend multiple
“With Aaron Ramsey potentially available to join Gareth Bale and Dan James in the starting line-up at Cardiff City Stadium, Wales have the attacking weapons to worry Croatia, who have only won two of their last seven away games.”
With three games remaining in their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign, Wales are still in contention, and they can earn a vital point on Sunday.
Croatia are three points clear in Group E and all but assured of qualification, so Ryan Giggs' side are focused on overhauling second-placed Slovakia, against whom they picked up a hard-fought point on Thursday night.
That result indicated that Wales could be finding their form at the right time. With Aaron Ramsey potentially available to join Gareth Bale and Dan James in the starting line-up at Cardiff City Stadium, Wales have the attacking weapons to worry Croatia, who have only won two of their last seven away games. Giggs' side have a good home defensive record and I'm backing them to get a draw this weekend.
Gardner Minshew has been a revelation for the Jacksonville Jaguars since coming into the starting line-up in place of Nick Foles, leading the team to two wins in three, but it is still a surprise to see the Jags pencilled in as favourites for this one.
Contrary to some predictions, Drew Brees' finger injury has not hurt the Saints as Sean Payton has found ways to help stand-in Teddy Bridgewater find his feet, while the defence has stepped up significantly since Brees went down in Week Two.
New Orleans have beaten likely play-off contenders Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys, as well as the dangerous Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Bridgewater has been growing in confidence in the role. The Jaguars are another good team, but at odds against, the Saints are the clear value pick for this one.
The Rugby World Cup is top of the agenda for Union fans this weekend, but Sunday's Top 14 fixtures include a fascinating clash between two of the heavyweights of French domestic rugby, Stade Francais and Toulon.
Both teams have been hit by international call-ups, with Stade Francais missing six of their regular squad players and Toulon weakened by five.
Four-time winners Toulon have been hit and miss so far this season, winning three and losing three, but Stade Francais have been dreadful, with a 33-27 win over newcomers Bayonne their only success. Home teams usually have a big edge in French rugby, but this is a good opportunity for Toulon to pick up an away win.
