Since their amazing run in the previous edition of the World Cup, Croatia have struggled to hit their former high marks. They were horrendous in the just-concluded Nations League, and just a tad lucky to avoid relegation from League A.
Just like their opponent, Spain have suffered something of a decline in recent years. Enrique’s men have had better days. Now, they have managed to skip past the first hurdle in the Euros, and will be focused on going further here.
Croatia vs Spain Team News
Tossed in a pretty straightforward group, Croatia were expected to ease out of their qualifying section, without even having to break a sweat. However, these ones made life difficult for themselves, and were pretty lucky to have progressed into the Euro knockouts.
In their opening game against England, Vatreni were completely outclassed in every single department on the pitch. Failing to get going in that match, they were dealt a huge blow, as the Three Lions handed them a narrow 1-0 defeat.
From that point on, the Blazers were left playing catch-up. Bouncing back from matchday one disappointment, Dalic’s men subsequently picked up four points from their remaining two games to secure qualification from Group D.
Vatreni finished in second place, having posted seven points on the board. They have shown their potency in attack, having registered a decent four goals so far. Heading into this clash against Spain, the Croatians need to be inspired.
Spain are one of the few sides yet to taste defeat in the European Championship, and this fantastic record goes right down to their dogged backline. Hitting the target a staggering six times, the Spaniards conceded only once throughout the group campaign.
Having settled for a share of the spoils in their opening two games, La Roja picked up their first win of the campaign on the last matchday. And they did that in fantastic fashion – putting five unanswered goals past Slovakia.
In that fixture, Enrique’s men displayed their explosive attacking credentials, as they left their opponent chasing shadows all through the 90 minutes. Now, the Red One will be hoping for more of the same in this contest, to progress to the quarterfinals.

Croatia: Ivan Perisic.

Croatia vs Spain Predictions
The first round of last-16 fixtures saw favorites Denmark and Italy come out on top. And Spain, expected to win this game, will take confidence from that trend as they head into this one. They are in high-spirits at the moment, and full of confidence.
That said, Croatia are also a very strong side capable of upsetting the Spaniards. Dalic will likely set his side up to attack La Roja without holding back. But in the end, we expect Enrique’s men to emerge victorious.
