The match

The long wait is nearly over after the delay of these European Championships. England are favourites with some bookmakers to win Euro 2020 (2021) and they begin their campaign with a game against Croatia. Gareth Southgate's side are on a run of six straight wins and with only one goal conceded. They have home advantage for their three group games and that is going to help them settle into this tournament. There are no major injury worries aside from Harry Maguire and Southgate will hope it stays that way. England lost to Croatia in the 2018 World Cup semi-final. Since then though, they have drawn 0-0 in Croatia and beaten them at Wembley. 

Croatia lost in the 2018 World Cup but haven't had a great deal of success since that defeat. They have failed to make it to either of the two Nations League finals. 2018/19 saw them finish bottom behind England and Spain but weren't relegated.  The latest edition saw them win one and lose five in their group but finish above Sweden to avoid dropping to League B. Only two of their last nine games have been won. Those were home matches against Cyprus and Malta. Away form isn't impressive with one win in nine and the last three all lost. If England can overcome any nerves then they should be able to start this group with a win over Croatia.

Key Statistics

  • England have won their last six games.
  • Only one goal has been conceded by England in those six matches.
  • Croatia have two wins from their last nine games.
  • Croatia have one win in their last nine away internationals.
  • England are unbeaten in their last two games against Croatia

The bet of our experts

Whether England can win Euro 2020 is an argument for another day. They can get their campaign off to a good start with a win over Croatia. They are strong at Wembley and beat Croatia there a few months after that 2018 World Cup semi-final loss. Croatia are not in the best of form and may struggle to get out of this group. Their away form is poor with no goals scored in recent losses to Slovenia and Belgium. Go for England to win this match.
