Euro 2020: Croatia vs Czech Republic preview, team news, prediction and tips
June 17


Croatia will face Czech Republic in the matchday 2 of Euro 2020 Group D at Hampden Park on Friday. The kick-off is at 18:00 CEST.


The 2018 World Cup runners-up Croatia looked a mere shadow of themselves when they clashed with England at Wembley in their Euro 2020 opener on Sunday. Zlatko Dalic's men were beaten 1-0 by the Three Lions and will be aiming to bounce back on Friday.

Jaroslav Silhavy's side, on the other hand, topped their group after the matchday 1 as they comfortably defeated Scotland 2-0 with Patrik Schick scoring a brace, including his incredible 50-yard strike.

Team news

Borna Barisic missed the England loss due to an injury and is set to sit out the forthcoming encounter too. Dejan Lovren, in turn, could return to the starting XI after overcoming his knee issue. Czech's goalie Jiri Pavlenka, meanwhile, has been replaced in the squad by Tomas Koubek after suffering a back injury in training.


After what we've seen from the Chequered Ones in London, let's say that Czech Republic are coming into this encounter as the slight favourites to claim all three points and thus secure their spot in the knock-out stage. The Czechs, however, have failed to beat the Croats in three matches on the bounce so let's not write off Dalic's side too early. We'd say that you could expect goals at both ends this time around, as well as in the teams' last two head-to-head meetings.
