Croatia vs France match forecast at the UEFA Nations League

Croatia will take on France in the second leg of the UEFA Nations League in Split on Monday evening, June 6. The visitors will rehabilitate themselves for last week’s fiasco. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet application.

Croatia

We all remembered the Croats as the sensation of the 2018 Mundial in Russia, when the Checkers reached the final and won the silver medal. Along the way, the Balkans also defeated our national team: 2-2 in regulation time in the quarter-finals, and then came that pankenka from Smolov in the penalty shoot-out. After this, the hosts reached the quarter-finals of Euro 2020, where they lost only in extra time to the Spaniards (5-3). Zlatko Dalic’s side finished top of their group in qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar, only one point ahead of Russia.

Croatia finished third in their last year’s Nations League quartet and were particularly unimpressive in their friendlies in March. The Southerners were victorious against Bulgaria, 2-1, before drawing a 1-1 friendly with Slovenia. Last Thursday, they drew 0-3 against Austria in the opening round of the Nations League.

France

The reigning world champions suffered an embarrassing defeat at last summer’s Euros, falling to lowly Switzerland in the 1/8 finals. The Three-Colors were 3-1 up after 80 minutes, but only narrowly missed twice and lost on penalties. On the other hand, qualification for the Mundial in Qatar was a success for the French: 18 points in 8 games, scoring 18 goals, conceding just 3. Didier Deschamps’ side have drawn only three times, without conceding a single goal.

The hosts won the UEFA Nations League last season and are currently one of the best teams in the world. But Les Bleus were unexpectedly defeated in their last game in Paris against Denmark (1-2) in the first round of the current Nations League.

Face-offs

The two teams have met each other recently – in the last UEFA Nations League draw – and both times the French were victorious (4-2 and 1-2).

Croatia vs France

France have a great squad at their disposal and should recover from last week’s shock defeat to Denmark. Players like Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann and Killian Mbappe can single-handedly decide the outcome of any match. The Croatians have struggled in recent months due to a generational change, and it is unlikely that in their current form the hosts can overpower such a formidable opponent. Class and experience will take their toll, so it’s a win for the Tricolours.
