Spain vs Croatia Prediction & Betting Tips - Euro

 by Ian John in Euro Predictions

The Euro 2024 action continues on Saturday with Group B getting underway with the first really huge game of the finals, Spain vs Croatia. The Spanish side are three-time winners of this tournament and reached the semi-finals in 2020, losing narrowly to Italy. Luis de la Fuente's team comfortably qualified as winners of Group A, winning seven of their eight games. They will face a Croatia side that has failed to shine at the Euros, despite a runner-up and third-place finish at the last two World Cup Final tournaments. Zlatko Dalic's team finished second in Group D behind Turkey to qualify for the finals this summer.

Spain - Croatia: Form Analysis

Spain have reached the semi-final or better in three of the last four European Championship tournaments, winning those held in 2008 and 2012. Their one blip was a Round of 16 exit in 2016. This young group of Spanish stars came through qualifying comfortably, winning seven of their eight qualifiers to top Group A ahead of Scotland. They did lose for the first time in 12 months when going down 1-0 to Colombia in London back in March, but they followed that with a 3-3 draw with Brazil in Madrid and then two five-goal victories, 5-0 against Andorra followed by a 5-1 win over Northern Ireland in their most recent Euro 2024 warm-up fixture. With Italy and Albania making up the other two teams in Group B, both teams will view this fixture as one they must not lose ahead of their second game. 

Croatia qualified second in Group D, ahead of Wales. They have not lost in six games and have won all of their last three matches. That has included an impressive 4-2 win away to Egypt, a 3-0 home win over North Macedonia and most recently, and impressively, a 2-1 win away to Portugal in their last warm-up fixture ahead of the tournament. The two teams have met several times recently, most recently in the Nations League Final in Rotterdam where Spain won on penalties after a 0-0 draw. Before that, they also faced off in the last European Championship, where Spain ran out 5-3 winners after extra time following an exciting 3-3 draw in the Round of 16. Croatia still very much rely on a number of key, more experienced players including the superlative Luka Modric (38), Ivan Perisic (35) and Domagoj Vida (also 35).

Spain & Croatia Squad Analysis

Spain could field the youngest ever player at a European Championships in this game should they elect to start Barcelona starlet Lamine Yamal, who will be just 16 years and 338 days old on Saturday. A place on the right wing of a 4-3-3 formation seems likely for the youngster with Nico Williams on the other flank and Alvaro Morata leading the line. In form Manchester City Rodri will anchor the midfield with Unai Simon set to get the nod in goal ahead of Arsenal's on loan David Raya.

There was good news for Croatia when veteran utility man Ivan Perisic recovered from an ACL injury in the final few weeks of the season and declared himself fit for the tournament. He will likely start on the left wing of a 4-3-3 formation for Croatia. The trusted midfield trio of Brozovic, Kovacic and Modric will form the basis of the team with Manchester City man Josko Gvardiol likely to start in central defense alongside another veteran, Domagoj Vida.

Spain - Croatia Key Points

  1. Spain have lost just one of their last 12 games, scoring 37 goals in those matches.
  2. Croatia has won all six of its last six games, including a penalty victory over Tunisia, scoring 12 goals.
  3. Six of the 10 games between Croatia and Spain have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
  4. The last four games between Croatia and Spain have witnessed 19 goals scored in total.
  5. Both teams have scored in four of Spain's last six matches and in two of Croatia's last three games.

Our Spain vs Croatia Prediction

Our prediction for Spain vs Croatia is for Over 2.5 Goals to be Scored and Both Teams to Score . The data between these two teams suggests goals are far more likely than not in this fixture. The recent form also indicates that both teams are finding the net. Both sides are also far stronger as an attacking threat than they are as a solid defensive unit. With Italy also in Group B, avoiding defeat may be a priority in this game for both teams, making our prediction more appealing than one based on a result.

Spain vs Croatia - Other Interesting Predictions

Dani Olmo (Spain) to Score at Any Time

Dani Olmo has emerged as one of Spain's most important players. He is their most attack-minded midfielder, often providing the ammunition for the strikers and weighing in with goals himself. With Croatia's aging midfield not likely to want to track back too often, Olmo should find space in the box and his attractive price makes him a great selection for our secondary prediction on the game. Therefore,  we've backed Olmo to score at any time.
