Spain

Three-time European champions qualified for the tournament on the 8th consecutive occasion. Spain have improved after Luis de la Fuente became their head coach. They topped their qualifying group, with 7 wins in their 8 games. Spain won the UEFA Nations League, beating Croatia on penalties. Only Germany and Spain have won Euro on 3 occasions. Spain won the title twice in the previous 4 editions of the tournament, finishing in the semi-finals in 2021. Spain have confidently beaten their opponents in the recent friendly games: Andorra (5:0) and Northern Ireland (5:1).

 

  • Spain have scored at least 2 goals in 5 out of their last 6 Euro 2024 qualifying games. Spain Over 1.5 – 11/10
  • Spain have won their last 6 official games in regular time. Spain to win – 9/10
  • Spain have scored the first goal in their last 6 Euro 2024 qualifying games. Spain to score the first goal – 13/20

Croatia

This is the 6th consecutive occasion that Croatia participate in Euro. They finished second in their qualifying group, conceding only 4 goals in their 8 games (only France and Portugal conceded less). Despite their success in the last two World Cups (runner-up and 3rd place), Croatia have never reached semi-finals of the European Championship. They were eliminated in the Round of 16 in the last two editions of the tournament. Croatia have won both of their recent friendly games against the following opponents: North Macedonia (3:0) and Portugal (2:1).

 

  • The side have participated in the European Championships on 6 occasions, with a maximum of 1 goal has been scored in 5 of their first games in the tournament. Under 1.5 – 2/1
  • The opponents of Croatia have never had an over 1-goal lead in the last 11 official games Croatia have played. Croatia +1 – 2/5
  • Croatia have scored in 6 out of their last 8 European Championship games. Croatia to score – 1/2

Spain – Croatia Prediction

Group B is probably the strongest in this tournament. Only Albania seem to be the outsiders. We’re unlikely to see some easy wins in the games between the three remaining teams. Spain, Italy and Croatia are equal sides in rankings and strengths. The games between them can be tied. By the way, the last two head-to-head games between Spain and Croatia ended exactly like this in regular time. Spain beat Croatia in extra time in the last Euro and won on penalties in the UEFA Nations League final a year ago

 

Spain demonstrated quite disappointing results In the last big tournaments. They played 10 games in the last World Cup and Euro, with 7 of them being tied in regular time (2 wins, 1 defeat). Croatia performed almost in the same way in the same tournaments, with 6 draws in regular time in their 11 games (3 wins, 2 defeats). 

 

Our prediction is a Draw at 5/2 .

 

Betting tips 15 Jun 2024

Spain have destroyed the defensive lines of Andorra (5:0) and Northern Ireland (5:1) in the friendly games played in June. The side is extremely motivated. The coaches will have to think to pick the starting XI. I believe de la Fuente has already chosen Rodri, Pedri and Ruiz. Morata will be assisted by Oyarzabal, Williams, Yamal and Joselu, depending on a situation. Spain have a very strong offensive line. The side scored 25 goals in the qualifying group in the games versus Scotland, Norway, Georgia and Cyprus.

Croatia were about to miss Euro 2024 and Dalič was on the verge of being sacked after Croatia had lost twice in October: Turkey (0:1) and Wales (1:2). Modrič and the others managed to deal with the situation and Croatia is going to take part in the 4th big tournament. Despite reaching the World Cup semi-finals on 2 consecutive occasions (in the first case, even reaching final), Croatia have only managed to reach Euro quarter-finals. The side wasn’t lucky enough with a draw, as their group is very tough.

Winning the 2023 UEFA Nations League can’t be compared to 3 European Championship titles. The last time that Spain won the trophy was in 2012. Now they’re one of the favourites.

The teams have scored quite a lot in their head-to-head games, with over 2.5 goals scored in 4 out of their 5 matches. Both Spain and Croatia are prepared for the tournament (in total, they’ve scored 15 goals in 4 friendly games). Goals are expected in this match, too.
