PORTUGAL VS CROATIA RECENT PERFORMANCE

In the group, there were Poland and Italy in the last season, but Portugal has completed very well when they won first place with 8 points after 4 rounds. Fernando Santos’s army then continued to overcome Switzerland and the Netherlands in the semi-finals and the final to become the first team to take the throne in the UEFA Nations League.

On the other side of the front line, being in the same group with England and Spain made Croatia much more difficult, the 2018 World Cup runner-up could not be able to compete for the first place with the top two teams, so they accepted the end in third place. Coach Zlatko Dalic and his players will definitely avoid having that repeated this season.

As the champions of the tournament, Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates will aim to defend the throne this season, but promise it will be very difficult for them to fulfil their goals. It was shown in the first round when Portugal faced an uncomfortable opponent Croatia.

PORTUGAL VS CROATIA RECENT PERFORMANCE

Both teams have just had a very successful Euro 2020 qualifying round when they both won tickets to the finals held next summer, which is the premise for the players to maintain their confidence. With the ability to play at home with the position of the champions, Portugal was placed in the upper door in this confrontation.

This is only the first match so the result will be very important for both teams, 1 victory is what they will aim for, so it is likely that a tight game will be created by them. The gameplay of both Portugal and Croatia is counter-attacking, so it is almost impossible to expect a match to end with many goals.

Portugal is the team that completely dominates in the previous 4 encounters, they have won 2 wins and were held 2 times by Croatia. Along with the better performances in recent tournaments, it is not difficult to see that the players of coach Fernando Santos are the ones with a higher chance of winning, but it will not be easy for them to do get that.

Our final score Portugal vs Croatia prediction is 1 – 0
