Croatia - Denmark - free football predictions for today.
After a poor start of the Nations League campaign when they suffered a convincing 0:3 defeat at home against the Austrians, the Croats are grabbing the momentum ever since, as they haven't tasted defeat in the following three fixtures, delivering quite a surprise in their latest one in Paris when they beat the odds and won over the World Champions with a minimal result.
They are currently 2nd in the group shared with Denmark, France, and Austria, definitely aiming to progress to the playoff phase for the first time, and a victory here will subsequently make this job much easier.
They will miss defenders Pongracic (5/0, Lecce), Caleta-Car (23/1, Southampton), Vrsaljko (52/0, Olympiacos), midfielder Jakic (4/0, Eintracht), and forward Brekalo (33/4, Wolfsburg) compared to matches in June.
A group leader Denmark continues to perform with confidence since the Euro 2020, having won in ten out of thirteen fixtures, definitely justifying their current 10th spot in the FIFA rankings.
With their latest victory against Croatia 2:0 at home, the Danish side is just one step away from reaching the playoff phase and is definitely traveling to Zagreb with only that thing in mind.
The guests miss defenders Vestergaard (35/2, Leicester), Boilesen (22/1, Copenhagen), midfielders Norgaard (17/1, Brentford), and forwards Cornelius (41/9, Copenhagen), Skov (11/5, Hoffenheim), Wind (15/5, Wolfsburg), and Poulsen (68/11, RB Leipzig) compared to previous call-up.
Hardly a passive one at Maksimir
Things couldn't be clearer for both nations, as a three-pointer will certainly be welcomed with wide open arms, a fact that is certainly pushing them to put their maximum effort to be as dangerous as possible. Denmark is looking better at the moment, but Croatia is widely known for its persistency and motivation, especially on home soil, so regardless of the outcome, it's difficult to see either of them keeping their sheet clean. Especially if we take EURO2024 qualifying rules in mind.
