Spain vs Croatia Match Preview, Free Picks & Prediction

Spain can take firm control of it though with victory here against World Cup runners-up Croatia. The game will take place at the home of second tier Elche and Spain start as the clear favourites as they look to build on a bright start under Luis Enrique.

Their victory over England certainly came with an element of good fortune with Gareth Southgate’s side unlucky to have what would have been a last minute leveller ruled out.

Croatia played their first game since that excellent World Cup campaign in Faro last week and drew 1-1 against Portugal in a friendly match. They remain under the stewardship of Zlatko Dalić and will feel they can still be a force in international football for the next few years.

Although, time is now perhaps running out if they are to claim a major trophy with this generation of players with the core of this side around the age of 30. These sides have met in the last two European Championships with Croatia winning 2-1 in 2016 and Spain 1-0 in 2012. Spain have won 3 of the 6 meetings overall to Croatia’s 2.

Spain News: Marco Asensio may get a start which could see Iago Aspas drop out and Rodrigo play as the central striker.

Croatia News: The retirements of Mario Mandzukic and Danijel Subasic also create openings in the team so Lovre Kalinic should start in goal while Ivan Santini is pushing for a start up front.

Free Betting Predictions: Spain 2-1 Croatia
