Croatia – Scotland
Croatia and Scotland battle for the third spot in Group D with England and Csech Republic almost certain to hold on to the top two spots in the group Improvements were expected from Croatia after the narrow 1-0 defeat to England. But it was yet another dismal performance against the czechs, though they managed to get away with a 1-1 draw. A win here could change the complexion of the group completely, they could even finish second. But this is easier said than done with the Scots coming on the back of a morale boosting result against the Three Lions.
The Scots were nothing but impressive in the goal-less draw against England as they also denied their neighbours any clear-cut chances. If we talk about scoring chances, it was Scotland who had the better chances and then even managed to force Jordan Pickford to pull some brilliant saves.
Surprisingly Scotland are unbeaten in the fiver overall head-to-head meetings with Croatia. This is a crunch match for both teams and nothing less than a win could help them at the end of the day. Our prediction is for under 2,5 goals.
