Croatia vs Denmark
UEFA Nations League
Date: Thursday, September 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Maksimir.
With just two fixtures remaining in the group stages both Croatia and Denmark are in the running for the top-most spot. As such the upcoming encounter will most probably determine the champions of the group and by all means we can expect a fierce battle.
As of now the Danes are placed at the top of the table with a lead of two points. So far they managed a 100 percentage winning record disregarding a single match. They also scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the group and let in the least as well.
However their only defeat came against their counterparts for the day, the Croatians. Croatia are placed second in the group as of now. They are on a 2 game-winning streak at present but they started their campaign on a two-fixture winless run.
And this slow start costed them quite a bit. If they are to qualify for the semifinals of the Nations League, they will have to secure a win at any cost this Thursday.
And despite their lead, the Danes will have to go after a victory as well. The reason being their 6th and last game in the group stage is against current world champions France, and there is no guarantee that they will be able to secure a win in this fixture.
So the safe option would be to go for the three points this Thursday itself.
By the looks of things expect a thrilling battle between the two teams and anticipate goals in plenty as well.
