Croatia vs Denmark | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
European rivals Croatia and Denmark will battle it out for a place in the World Cup quarter finals this weekend, with their performances in the competition so far meaning that it is the home side who are the favourites for victory. However, with the Danes having ended their Group C campaign unbeaten, it promises to be a close encounter in Nizhny Novgorod.
Croatia take on Denmark in the World Cup Round of 16 on Sunday evening, with both teams having enjoyed successful campaigns to date. Croatia are the undoubted favourites to progress, however there are still a number of betting markets worth checking out ahead of the tie. For those still unsure of who to back ahead of kick-off, it is well worth checking out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Croatia.
Croatia News & Form
Croatia won all three of their matches in Group D, seeing off Nigeria, Iceland and Argentina in order to be one of just three nations in the competition to do so. Real Madrid man Luka Modric has been the star of the show so far, with the midfielder having two goals two his name already. However, the likes of Ivan Perisic, Ivan Rakitic and Ante Rebic have also been on top form, with the trio almost certain to start against Denmark this weekend. AC Milan striker Nikola Kalinic was sent home after the first match, while former Tottenham Hotspur defender Vedran Corluka is an injury doubt for their upcoming match.
Denmark News & Form
Denmark defeated Peru in Group C, as well as drawing with both Australia and France in order to secure their place in the knockout stages in Russia, with Åge Hareide’s side having conceded just a single goal in the process. Christian Eriksen is undoubtedly their star man, with the Spurs man needing to have to be at his best if the Dane’s are to be in with a chance of coming out on top this weekend.
Croatia vs Denmark Head to Head
There is nothing to separate the two teams when it comes to their head-to-head record, with both teams having two wins apiece from their five previous encounters. However, the two nations have not met since 2004, when Croatia came out on top in a friendly clash by two goals to one. With the duo having not met in over a decade now, perhaps few conclusions can be made from the record between Croatia and Denmark.
