UEFA Euro 2020 Croatia vs Spain 28 JUNE
It promises to be a fun contest between the two sides who are just starting to get into Euro 2020. With a convincing 3-1 victory over Scotland, Croatia took second place in Group D after picking up just one point from their first two games.
After back-to-back draws, Spain got their first win on board. Five players swept past Slovakia to place them as runners-up, just behind Sweden. Although they lost the last two meetings, Luis will is still able to recall the humiliating 6-0 defeat they suffered against Croatia in the inaugural Nations League 2018.
Zlatko Dali, a World Cup finalist in 2011, is now aiming to lead his country to victory in the European Championship knockout stages. You can watch Sport Soccer Euro 2020 FREE online at wclub365 for every single game of the tournament.
CROATIA Vs SPAIN: MATCH STATS
Luis Enrique’s team is now on track to win a record fourth Euros crown. They are unbeaten in 11 of their previous five games and have only conceded once in the last five.
In the meantime, Croatia’s victory over Scotland was the first of five attempts to win. During that span, they failed to record a clean sheet. Dalic will look to International’s Ivan Perisic for inspiration, as he has been on the score sheet in all four of his country’s games.
CROATIA Vs SPAIN: SQUAWKA SAYS
- Scoreline prediction: Croatia 1-2 Spain
Pick & Analysis of Betting
Perisic’s loss is a crushing blow to Croatia’s chances of progressing against a Spanish team that is balanced and gifted, with first-class talent across the field. The Slovakian favorites must feel pretty confident after their win, so I believe Croatia will be up against them in this match.
As such, Spain is my top choice for the Asian Handicap spread line at -0.75 at fair–136 odds via draft Kings. If you have the money, I would look to get La Furia Roja at -135 odds.
If you like totals, I would also add a bit of -134 to the total keeping under 2.5 goals. Croatia is unlikely to be able to overcome the Spanish defense, which has conceded only one goal before this match.
