Croatia vs Italy Tips


Croatia could not secure the victory they so desperately needed against Albania as they were held to a 2-2 draw by their opponents.

Italy were completely outplayed by Spain in their second match as they were lucky to escape with a 1-0 defeat. 

  • Croatia were held to a draw in their last match at Euro 2024
  • The pair have drawn their last three meetings 

Head To Head


The sides have met eight times, with Croatia winning three meetings and the other five ending as draws. 

Croatia Form 


Croatia's place at Euro 2024 hangs by a thread after a pulsating match with Albania ended in a 2-2 draw. 

While either side could have won the clash, neither could quite score that winning goal. This draw leaves Croatia on one point from two games. While four points may still prove to be enough to allow Croatia to go through as one of the best third-placed sides, they would likely need to find a way to improve on their -3 goal difference. 

While Croatia will desperately try to secure a win that could see them through, they have looked too open without the ball. Their midfield has seemed to part at will when the opposition has the ball, with their ball-playing midfielders constantly caught out of position. With this in mind, I am shying away from backing them to win. 

Italy Form 


Italy were not able to get any sort of foothold in their clash with Spain as they were beaten 1-0 in their second group game. 

While they were beaten, their fate is still in their own hands heading into this final match, with a draw likely enough to see them through to the next round. While Croatia will pose a very different threat to the possession football of Spain, Italy cannot underestimate them. 

Avoiding defeat in this one is a must, and with Italy usually so good defensively, I am backing them to hold out for a draw as they move onto four points from a possible nine. 

Verdict

I predict that this match will end in a draw, with Croatia eliminated as Italy move onto four points.
