Croatia vs Spain Match Preview & Team News
The World Cup 2018 runner-ups secured 2nd place in the group stage thanks to the victory against Scotland in the last round. They opened the campaign by losing to England 1:0, while Croatia snatched a point in a 1:1 draw against the Czech Republic. Zlatko Dalic’s side hasn’t been playing very well lately, as they booked only one victory in the previous five matches. However, that one came in the most crucial game for Croatia. Luka Modric was instrumental for Vatreni in a 3:1 win against Scotland after scoring a screamer and packing the third goal. A very challenging task is ahead of Croatia, but they want to repeat the display from their latest head-to-head clash back in 2018.
Spain had a slow start into the EURO 2020 campaign, as they failed to win in the first two rounds. Sweden resisted in a goalless draw in the opening match, while Poland also snatched a point in a 1:1 draw. Therefore, La Furia Roja desperately needed a victory against Slovakia in order to stay in the tournament. Alvaro Morata’s missed penalty made the home fans nervous, but Spain quickly resolved any doubts around their win. They had a 2:0 lead already at halftime and eventually managed to trash rivals 5:0. That was a massive boost of confidence for Spain, as they haven’t been very consistent lately. A tricky opponent is ahead of them, but Spain hopes to keep the high-performance level from the last match.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Croatia will definitely search for its chances to stun Spain and progress to the quarter-finals. However, Spain seems to be in better momentum, and they are favorites in this clash. We believe La Furia Roja will meet the expectations and progress to the next stage.
Goals Market Prediction
These two sides faced each other on several occasions in the previous five years. Their latest three encounters went over a 2.5 margin, and this one shouldn’t be much different. Therefore, we expect to see at least three goals in total in this clash.
