As part of the next match of the European Football Championship, the players of the national teams of Croatia and the Czech Republic will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
The Croatian national team, as expected, started the European Championship with a defeat. The silver medalists of the 2018 World Cup could not stop England and lost to the team of the "three lions" with a score of -0:1. However, the victory of the British is hardly convincing. It was really difficult for the Dalic team at the beginning of the meeting. Somewhere from the middle of the first half to the final whistle, there was a continuous struggle on the field. The only thing that disappointed Croatia – the game in attack. Obviously, the Croatian team needs to add to this component.
Meanwhile, the Czech national team started with a victory over the Scottish national team – 2: 0. This result was completely natural. The powerful Czech Republic was ready to fight with the strong Scots. The hero of the meeting was Patrick Schick. In the first half, he was able to score a great goal with a header, managing to jump above the two Scots, and after the break, he scored the best goal of the tournament-from the center of the field. There are still a lot of games ahead, but it is unlikely that anyone will be able to move this ball from the first place.
Statistics and figures:
- Croatia - the favorite of the meeting;
- The Croats have lost in their last 2 games;
- Czech Republic has a 2-match winning streak;
- The rivals met each other twice;
- In the last face-to-face match, the score was 2:2.
Most likely, in this meeting we will see a lot of interesting events on the field. I would take a chance and make a prediction for the Czechs to win with a zero handicap. In the first match, the "tricolor" showed excellent football and became one step closer to reaching the playoffs of the tournament.
