Croatia top their group as they welcome second-placed Ukraine who have to compete against a side with a very good home record. Croatia beat Iceland 2-0, won 1-0 in Finland and 6-0 in Kosovo after surprisingly drawing 1-1 at home to Turkey. A concern for them is that are likely to be missing their regular starting defence with Vrsljko, Corluka, Lovren and Strinic all out as well as one of their main attacking threats Perisic. However, they do have a class midfielder in Modric, with Rakitic there also to assist, and then with Pjaca on the flanks and Mandzukic down the middle they have some very good creative and attacking options to score the required goals.
Ukraine won 1-0 at home to Finland and 3-0 at home to Kosovo, drew 2-2 in Turkey and drew 1-1 at home to Iceland, They have shown that they can score and believe they will against a depleted Croatian defence, but don't believe that they can hold out against this talented Croatia side that will have the crowd in full voice.
