Props & Futures

The Croatians delivered a valiant effort against Spain in the 2023 Nations League, losing on penalties to Spain in what looked like Luka Modric’s final crack at collecting international hardware. Modric has a shot at redemption, but their odds equate to an implied probability of roughly two percent.

WHAT group is Croatia IN?

Croatia, Spain, Italy, and Albania have their work cut out after their Euro 2024 draw in Group B, a candidate for the “Group of Death” in this year’s tournament.

Croatia Euro 2024 odds showcase a price tag to advance. Remember that as many as three teams can advance to the knockout phase of the Euro 2024 bracket. In the group stage, teams generate three points for wins and one point per draw. Whichever two tally the most points in the group will move on.

The four highest-scoring No. 3 finishers will also advance. Therefore, Croatia’s fate may hinge upon other third-place finishers in the other groups if they wind up in the same position.

WHEN DOES Croatia PLAY AGAIN?

Croatia failed to exact revenge for their loss against the Spaniards in the 2023 Nations League, falling to Spain (3-0) again in their opening match of Euro 2024 odds.

Given the aforementioned betting markets, if the Vatreni pull off a stunner to win Group B, a third-place team from Groups A, D, E, or F will square off against them in the first knockout round. Should they prevail, a possible quarterfinal with hosts Germany or Group C runner-up (England’s group) would await them. There may also be a semifinal date with the Netherlands, Belgium, or Portugal before potentially taking on England or France in the Berlin final.

HOW Croatia QUALIFIED FOR EURO 2024

Croatia was the last nation to qualify for Euro 2024 with a top-two group finish. Ante Budimir sealed it with a spectacular aerial delivery past the outstretched arms of keeper Ognjen Cancarevic.

Croatia finished second in Group D behind Turkey, trailing by a single point. They averaged 62.5% possession while accruing a standout 88.75% passing efficiency. The 2018 World Cup finalists also compiled 39.88 ball recoveries per match.

Since 1996, Croatia has earned a bid for every Euro tournament except in 2000, which was held in Belgium and the Netherlands. Their standout performances came via quarterfinal appearances in 1996 and 2008.

Croatia’s STARTING LINEUP

Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalic will presumably employ the 4-3-3 setup, with veteran goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic as their last defense.

Josip Juranovic, Domagoj Vida, Josko Gvardiol, and Josip Stanisic are expected to provide stellar defense in front of Livakovic. In the midfield, Luka Modric, Marcelo Brozovic, and Mateo Kovacic are penciled beyond a shadow of a doubt. Elsewhere, Ivan Perisic, Andrej Kramaric, and Mario Pasalic will likely utilize an inverted triangle in the final third of the lineup.

Modric’s final hoora international stage is arguably this team’s biggest storyline entering Euro 2024. He’s expected to retire from international football entirely after this tournament. The Real Madrid maestro has been a stalwart for Croatia, but he’s only appeared in Real Madrid’s starting lineup for less than half of their games this season.

The potential lineup is structured as follows: Livakovic; Juranovic, Vida, Gvardiol, Stanisic; Modric, Brozovic, Kovacic; Perisic, Kramaric, Pasalic.
