Having lost 2-1 to Croatia in the 2018 World Cup semi-final, England will be eager to get one over on the Croatian team in a major tournament. However, this will not be the first time the teams have met following the 2018 World Cup as they were paired together in the Nations League.The match in Croatia finished 0-0 but England came out on top in the reverse fixture at Wembley, winning the match 2-1.
We have had really good results against Croatia and poor results. So it’s not a rival we can be complacent about. But Croatia at Wembley is a brilliant opening game for the fans and the players. - Gareth Southgate about this match, The Guardian
In fact, if you look at the recent record between the teams it is England who comes out on top. The English have lost only one of their last 5 meetings with Croatia and although it was the most important match of the 5, England still hold the superior record.
England finished as comfortable winners of their qualifying group, winning 7 of the 8 games and losing just the one. They ended up 6 points clear of second place Czech Republic and were always heavy favourites to win the group throughout the qualifying campaign. England must now transfer that form into this tournament and the bookmakers believed they will do so by winning this match and getting off to the perfect start.
The Croatia vs England odds have the hosts as favourites to win the match. Read on for more England vs Croatia betting tips below as we take a look at the chances of the latter.
2. Croatia vs England Outsiders
Croatia made heavy weather of their qualifying campaign and still needed to take something from their final match at home against Slovakia to secure their place at the top of the group. They ended up finishing just 3 points clear of second place Wales having won 5 of their 8 matches. Dropped points came at the hands of Hungary, Azerbaijan and Wales, all three of which were away from home.
However, Croatia will look to take inspiration from their victory over England at the 2018 World Cup. Having been held to a 0-0 draw at home and suffering a narrow 2-1 defeat away to England during the Nations League, there is clearly very little to separate the teams, despite what the odds might suggest.
