Croatia v Denmark- World Cup 2018

Croatia vs Denmark World Cup Prediction 1st July 2018 – 7.00 p.m

One of the most impressive sides at the 2018 World Cup so far has been Croatia who powered their way to a group win with a 100% record. The game which really made people sit up and take notice of this dark horse threat in the tournament was their big 3-0 success over Argentina in their second game. As for Denmark, they took second place behind France in Group C but only came up with two goals in their matches and our Croatia v Denmark prediction suggests that the lack of goals from the Danes could be their downfall.

Who will win Croatia vs Denmark?

This is a good all-European tie and it is Croatia who are naturally the favourites to win this having produced some very good displays in the group stage. When it comes to thinking about who will win Croatia v Denmark it is the former who look stronger of the two but they will have their hands full in may have to exercise a fair degree of patience as they take on a Denmark side who are very strong at the back.

Croatia living up to dark horse label

Croatia have looked one of the best teams at the 2018 World Cup so far and they will be happy enough with their draw for the round of 16. Croatia made it past the group stage winning all three of their matches and their most notable success was there big 3-0 win over Argentina. They have looked strong and impressive all the way and one of the notable features of their game is how good their midfield is. The one goal that they have conceded at Russia 2018 was from the penalty spot against Iceland and so it is not a stretch to see them keeping Denmark at bay really in this game. Most of the attacking impetus will come from Croatia and therefore in our Croatia v Denmark predictions we are looking at Croatia to win to nil is a 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 28th, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.).

One of the standout performers at the tournament so far is Croatia’s midfielder Luka Modric who has popped up with a couple of goals and he is at 4/1 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 28th, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.). Croatia now are on a four-match winning streak in their current form and have only conceded two goals in that sequence, one of those the penalty against Iceland. For all the World this fixture looks as if it will end up under 2.5 goals because of how good Denmark’s defence is. Under 2.5 goals at 19/40 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 28th, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.).

Danes lack the firepower?

Denmark are unbeaten in their last 11 games and that successful round has been built off the strength of their defence. They are defensive giants and have conceded just two goals in their last 11 games with clean sheets in nine of those games. That is some record and at the 2018 World Cup, just like Croatia, their only goal conceded has come from the penalty spot. Denmark ended up playing out draws against Australia and France in the group stage and collected a 1-0 win over Peru. That was enough to give them second place behind France. Because Denmark have a strong defence but aren’t particularly strong going forward both teams not to score is at 4/7 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 28th, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.).

The Danes have drawn four of their last six and you can see them staying organised enough to collect a draw at half-time which is a good option at bet365. So like Croatia, Denmark are strong in defence but the difference between the two may come in the amount of talent that they have in pushing forward for goals. That is where Denmark may fall short and Denmark have scored just four goals in their last six games, failing to score in three of them. Christian Eriksen and Yussuf Poulsen have shared Denmark last four goals with two each.

Croatia vs Denmark Prediction

Because Denmark’s strength is in their organised defence this game is likely to go under 2.5 goals which is one of our top Croatia v Denmark predictions. As for a winner, we cannot look past Croatia because they have an abundance of quality and should be able to find a match winner from somewhere.
