Italy vs. Croatia Best Bets

Croatia to Win ()

With Spain likely to beat Albania, the decisive match on the final day of Group B will see Croatia take on Italy. Croatia have one point to their name so far after conceding in the last minute to Albania on Wednesday. It was a game they deserved to win, amassing 2.74(xG) to Albania’s 1.54(xG), but Croatia must have all three points Monday for a berth into the Euro 2024 Knockout Stage bracket.

Meanwhile, the Italians sit on three points after narrowly defeating Albania and then being hammered by Spain on Thursday. Italy only created 0.18(xG) in that game, the third least of any team in any game at this year’s competition.

Croatia look the value bet in this one based on their xG performances so far. They beat Spain on xG in their first match, and performed much better against the Spanish outfit in terms of chance creation than Italy did.

Over Goals (+100)

I like the look of Over 2.5 goals in this game at +100 or better. Croatia have created more xG than any other team at the tournament so far, at the time of writing (5.41). Meanwhile, they haven’t exactly been tight in defence. Their game against Albania saw 4.28(xG) amassed between the two sides – the third most of any game at Euro 2024 so far.

On the other side of the equation, Italy’s defence has also been weak. As already mentioned, they conceded plenty of chances against Spain and looked completely out of sorts at the back for large periods of that game.

Italy’s inability to create chances in their clash against Spain is a slight worry for this bet, but with both teams needing a win, we believe this will be an open game with lots of goals.

Best of luck with your Euro 2024 bets!
