Croatia can put themselves in pole position to win Nations League Group A1 if getting the better of current table toppers Denmark in Zagreb.
The Blazers usually perform at a higher level when something is at stake and have already beaten the Danes in Copenhagen during this campaign.
We’re happy to take 29/20 for a home victory as our first Croatia vs Denmark prediction.
Croatia got off to a dreadful start in this pool when going down 3-0 at home to Austria in Osijek.
However, they have since rediscovered the form which saw them finish their World Cup qualifying campaign strongly to shade Russia in Group G.
The Blazers only dropped two points out of a possible 15 in front of their own fans in a section which also featured Slovakia and Slovenia.
In this competition, Croatia came from behind to draw 1-1 with France in Split and then prevailed 1-0 against Denmark at Parken.
Luka Modric’s early penalty proved enough to upset Les Bleus in Paris last time out and now they have everything to play for here.
A win would send them to the summit ahead of Sunday’s revenge match with Austria in Vienna.
Andrej Kramaric has helped Hoffenheim to enjoy a solid start to their Bundesliga season and Croatia vs Denmark odds.
Denmark are also preparing for Qatar 2022 after topping their qualifying group by four points ahead of Scotland.
During that campaign, they rattled off nine straight wins before losing 2-0 in Glasgow in the final round of fixtures when already through.
The Danes got off to a flying start in this pool when coming from behind to stun France 2-1 in Paris, where Andreas Cornelius bagged both goals.
Kasper Hjulmand’s side prevailed by the same scoreline in Austria but were then shaded by Croatia in an even Copenhagen contest.
Beating Austria 2-0 on home turf kept Denmark at the top of the table and they do have a very settled side right now.
Christian Eriksen has been in fine form for Manchester United, while Kasper Schmeichel, Simon Kjaer, Andreas Christensen, Thomas Delaney and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg contribute towards a strong spine.
Unfortunately, injuries to Cornelius and Jonas Wind may hurt them up front, even if Martin Braithwaite, Kasper Dolberg, Andreas Skov Olsen and Brentford’s Mikkel Damsgaard are still available.
When these teams met in Copenhagen, Denmark had the better of things in the opening period, but the introduction of Modric at half-time put Croatia on top.
We’re hoping the Real Madrid star can help his team to oblige by any one-goal margin again at 29/10 in our Croatia vs Denmark betting tips.
France 0-1 CROATIA – Luka Modric
DENMARK 2-0 Austria – Jonas Wind, Andreas Skov Olsen
Head-to-head: Denmark 0-1 Croatia, Croatia 3-2 Denmark
