Croatia vs Scotland Predictions and Betting Tips
Croatia and Scotland would battle for all three points in the final game of group D in the European Championship. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
The Scots won both games against Croatia back in the 2014 World Cup qualifier. The three games prior to that, however, have ended in stalemates. How would this encounter pan out?
Massive six-pointer on the cards
Croatia’s performance in the European Championship thus far hasn’t been impressive compared to their 2018 World Cup run. Having lost in their first game, they failed to pick up maximum points against the Czech Republic. As it stands, Dalic’s troops have only a point on the board and would need a win to, at least, give them a chance of qualifying as one of the best losers.
Scotland, on the other hand, was more than happy with a point at Wembley Stadium as they played out a 0-0 stalemate with England. At the middle of the park, Billy Gilmour picked up the man of the match award in only his first start for the Tartan Army. However, they would need to pick up maximum points, just like their opponents, if they’re to also qualify in 3rd place.
