Croatia will take on Czech Republic this evening (Friday) in the Euro 2020 at Hampden Park in Glasgow in Group D.
A disappointing 1-0 defeat to England has raised question marks over Croatia’s quality in the ongoing European Championship.
The 2018 World Cup finalists were far from competent and now run the risk of potentially bowing out of the top two contention in Group D.
It is a must-win game for Zlatko Dalic’s men, especially following Czechia’s win over Scotland in the opening fixture.
Czech Republic, however, are not an opposition to be taken lightly, as they showed in the opening matchday.
They were not exactly dominant against the Scottish team but showcased excellent attacking prowess and the defensive solidity that could trouble the Croatia team.
The spirits will be high in Czechia camp while their opponents are licking their wounds from the disappointing defeat to England.
