Croatia vs England
The Croats and the British have a rich history of personal confrontation, and the teams also played in the semifinals of the last world Cup. Croatia won a strong-willed victory in overtime, but the meeting of the same rivals in the League of Nations will be deprived of the same emotions.
First, its importance is much lower. Secondly, the atmosphere will play a role. The Croats have been suspended and hold the match without spectators. Moreover, they moved the match to Rijeka, and the local stadium is less familiar to the players and is simply small. Usually the lack of support does not help not only the home team, but also entertainment in principle.
It is difficult to choose a favorite — at least we do not know how many experiments both sides will allow themselves. Both teams started the tournament with a defeat from Spain. And if the British lost with dignity, the Croats were destroyed with a score of 6:0. Summer playing for the national team made up of Mario Mandžukić, and that is another factor that plays slightly in favor of England. It was Juventus forward who scored the winning goal of the Croats in the semifinals of the world Cup.
The crushing defeat from Spain probably hurt the pride of Croatian players, so they will certainly try to rehabilitate for him. However, the British probably have enough talent and perseverance to at least not lose. Therefore, I propose to bet on a draw in this game.
