Croatia vs France Live

A repeat of the World Cup final from 2018 takes place on Wednesday evening as France travel to Zagreb to face Croatia in the Nations League.

Group Three of League A is arguably the most competitive in the entire tournament with Portugal and Sweden the other two sides, meaning that any points picked up at the Maksimir Stadium will be vital for progression.

Last month’s meeting in Paris between these two teams saw Les Bleus claim an entertaining 4-2 win and another victory for Didier Deschamps’ men can be backed at 21/20 (2.05) .

Croatia will be without Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic who is suspended for the clash.

Deschamps may be tempted to change things up front with Anthony Martial or Wissam Ben Yedder possibly coming in for Olivier Giroud, who has started the last two games.

Les Bleus’ last game was a 0-0 draw with Portugal and that marked the first time the side had failed to find the back of the net in a home clash in the Nations League.

It was also only their third clean sheet in seven games they have played in the tournament, and generally France matches can be relied upon for goals.

Croatia, for their part, have been on an inconsistent run of form since claiming the runner-up spot at the last World Cup, with Zlatko Dalic’s men losing to Hungary and Tunisia whilst also drawing with Azerbaijan and Wales.

Those fixtures in that time have generally been entertaining, though, with Croatia having both scored and conceded in 15 of their last 17 games in all competitions and so the temptation must surely be to back a repeat on Wednesday evening.

Croatia vs France Tips And Predictions

Both teams to score is priced at 5/6 (1.83) and this looks like a strong selection, one which has paid out in three of the last four meetings between these nations.
