22nd June – 21:00, Hampden Park, Glasgow
Croatia will face Scotland in the EURO 2020 group stage 3rd round at Hampden Park. Both teams will go for a victory, as it is their only chance of continuing their campaign in the tournament.
Croatia vs Scotland Match Preview & Team News
Vatreni are one of the biggest underachievers in EURO 2020, as they booked only a point from the first two matches. Therefore, the narrow 1:0 defeat against England is not too surprising, but they could have put a better performance. Furthermore, Zlatko Dalic’s side failed to pick up three points against the Czech Republic as well, as they drew 1:1. Croatia is on a slight decline lately, as they also barely survived in the UEFA Nations League top division. Luka Modric and the lads haven’t tasted a win four times in a row, and they need to break that poor streak to remain in the tournament. Although they have been pretty solid in the back, Croatia needs to improve its finishing in this game.
Scotland didn’t have a good time at Hampden Park in their first match in EURO 2020, as they lost to the Czech Republic 2:0. After that, however, Steve Clarke’s side fought for a goalless draw against England that kept their chances of progressing further. That could be a massive boost of confidence for the hosts to book a victory here and advance to the eight-finals for the first time. However, Che Adams and the lads need to start scoring since they are still searching for the first goal in the tournament. Scotland has been defensively solid lately, but finishing is their central pain point at the moment. The hosts need to put their best performance so far and achieve their best accomplishment in their history of major tournaments.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is going to be a tight clash, and both sides will go for a win in this one. On the other hand, a draw doesn’t suit either team, and we think it’s the least likely outcome. Croatia is more experienced in these matches, and we believe they will celebrate a vital victory.
Goals Market Prediction
Both teams haven’t been clinical in front of the oppositions’ net, while their defenses perform a pretty good job. We shouldn’t expect to see many goals, like was the case in their all five head-to-head clashes. Therefore, this match should remain under a 2.5 margin.
