Along with the French national team, Croatia is the main candidate for winning first place in the table, and it was expected that the competition in the group would start with a slight victory, but that did not happen. The Croats welcomed the Austrian national team in Osijek, and we can say that they experienced a real debacle. Although the Croats had significantly more ball possession, the Austrians were much more dangerous, and managed to score as many as three goals, and thus inflicting one of the most painful defeats on the Croatian national team in recent years. With only one match played, the Croats still have plenty of time to consolidate, and we believe that as time goes on it will get better and better, but the match against France will probably be decisive in the fight to win first place. For that reason, we believe that the Croats will play much more aggressively in defense and will “keep the result”, considering that even one point would suit them at this moment, and objectively speaking, they do not have enough quality to offensively parry a better opponent.


The current champions started the defense of the trophy with a shocking defeat, so the “red alarm” was lit in the professional staff of the French national team. The French were defeated by the Danish national team 2: 1 at home three days ago, and they failed to take advantage of the fact that they played practically in the strongest possible roster, and the help of the audience was not enough. There was no time for a more detailed analysis, and the next day they had to leave for Croatia, but one thing is for sure – it’s time to react. The French are without a doubt still the main candidates for winning the trophy, but they will first have to reach the first position in the group, so a victory in Split is imperative. A possible failure could greatly complicate their position, especially if Denmark defeat Austria, so the French has practically no right to make mistakes. A significant advantage for the visiting team may be the fact that the Croatian national team will probably be weakened by the absence of the most likely three important players, which can greatly change the balance of power on the field.


France triumphed in six games, while two games ended in a draw.

Croatia vs. France Prediction

The two best national teams in Group A started the competition in the League of Nations with defeats, so the match in Split could very easily determine the further fate of both. France is of better quality at the moment, without any doubt, but the Croatians have shown many times in the last few years that they must not be easily underestimated, so we expect a great fight on the field and a lot of tension in the match. The French received a serious “slap” three days ago, and we believe that they will want to “redeem” themselves at any cost for the disgraceful defeat of Denmark, so we expect that they will be able to impose the desired rhythm, and will constantly threat to home team goal. France is closer to victory at the moment, but we still believe that a possible victory will not be too convincing, considering that the Croats are a team that does not concede a large number of goals at home.
