Croatia Team News

Croats had a bad start to this UEFA Nations League season. As hosts, they were defeated by Austria 0-3, and then drew with France 1-1, also in front of the home crowd. Thus, they won only one point from the first two meetings.

But they closed the June campaign of four games with two victories, both away. First, Mario Pasalic won 1-0 at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, and then Luka Modric silenced the Saint-Denis Stadium in Paris with a goal from the penalty spot. Thus, the Blazers achieved two consecutive victories.

In case of victory over Denmark, Croatia would overtake the Scandinavian national team at the top of the table and enter the last round as the group leader.

Duje Caleta-Car will skip this match, while much is expected from Nikola Vlasic, who is playing well for Torino at the beginning of the new season. He has already scored three goals since the start of the new competitive year and is ready to continue his goal scoring streak.

Denmark Team News

The continuity of the positive results of the Danish national team continued in this edition of the UEFA Nations League. After securing direct qualification to the World Cup, the semi-finalists of the last EURO won nine out of a possible 12 points in the first four rounds and are the leaders of the group.

They defeated Austria twice – 2-0 as hosts and 2-1 as guests. In Paris, they managed to beat the French with a score of 2-1, and as we have already mentioned, their only failure was a defeat against Croatia at home. The Danes will probably want to take revenge on the Croatian national team in an identical way on Thursday.

This national team has been constantly improving its playing style for the past few years. This generation has a lot of good players, who regularly play in their clubs, so they are maximally ready to meet all challenges when they put on the national team jersey.

The Premier League midfield tandem of Hojbjerg – Eriksen should be Denmark’s main strength in this game, as both are some of the key players for Manchester United and Tottenham at the start of the season.


Before this edition of the UEFA Nations League, Denmark and Croatia met at the 2018 World Cup. Then the Croats won 3-2 on penalties. The score after 90 minutes was 1-1.

Expected lineups

Croatia (4-1-4-1): Livakovic; Sosa, Gvardiol, Vida, Jurakovic; Brozovic; Perisic, Modric, Kovacic, Pasalic; Vlasic

Denmark (3-4-3): Schmeichel; Christensen, Andersen, Nelsson; Kristensen, Hojbjerg, Eriksen, Maehle; Skov Olsen, Braithwaite, Damsgaard

Croatia vs. Denmark Betting Prediction

We expect both teams to go for the win in this match, especially the Danes. If they win, they will secure first place in the group. Otherwise, they will fight for a place in the playoffs in the last round against the current world champions, the French. We believe that Croatia also has enough offensive potential to score at least one goal in this clash.

Prediction: Both Teams To Score – Yes
