Croatia vs Czech Republic: Predictions and Betting Tips

17:00, Jun 18 2021
Croatia vs Czech Republic predictions for this UEFA EURO 2020 clash on Friday at Hampden Park. The Croatians, in need of points, will face a Czech side looking to qualify for the next round. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Croatia

The Croats lost in their Euro opener to one of the toughest opponents, England. Although the defeat was by the narrowest of margins, the Croats did not play their best match

The withdrawals of Ivan Rakitić and Mario Mandžukić from the national team have left holes in the Croatian team and the Croatian coach has not been able to find adequate replacements for them. Luka Modrić especially seemed affected by the absence of Ivan Rakitić and was playing well below his best.

Czech Republic

The Czechs got off to the best possible start with a 2-0 win in Scotland. The MVP of the match was Patrik Schick who scored both goals, one of them from midfield.

The Czechs face the Croatians this time who, in theory, are a superior opponent. Nevertheless, with the way both teams have started, we would not be surprised if the Czechs win this match as well.

Key Stats

  • Three consecutive matches without winning for Croatia, two losses and one draw
  • Four of Croatia’s last five games have ended with under 2.5 total match goals
  • Two wins, two losses and one draw for Czech Republic in their last five games
  • Czech Republic have conceded at least one goal in four of their last five games

Croatia vs Czech Republic Predictions

Despite the opposing fortunes for the teams in their first match, we think Croatia will win this match, as they have players who are individually much better than the Czechs. The Croats will be further motivated to secure victory by their need for points

We think that the Czechs will likely opt for a defensive play, as even a draw would be a good result for them. Therefore, if the Croats do manage to beat them we think it will only be by a single goal.
