Spain vs Croatia 21 June 2016: Euro 2016 Preview and Predictions

Croatia vs Spain is set to be a cracking game since both teams are very talented and they both have the ability to run deep in this tournament. In addition to that, top spot in the group is still up for grabs so I am expecting two very motivated sides playing against each other.

Spain have been amazing in this tournament and they have had result for that which are two wins in two games. This will be their biggest test since Croatia are a good side. Spain will have to look to Iniesta again since this time around the Spanish midfield will be tested and his experience will very much come in handy. In addition to that, the likes of David Silva and Fabregas will also need to step up since both of these superstars have had very quiet competitions so far.

Croatia will feel a little unlucky after their last game when a controversial penalty saw them miss out on getting all three point. That being said, this game they will look to do better and again their midfield let by Luka Modric will be key. If the Real Madrid man can get his team in order they might be able to stop the likes of Iniesta dominating possession which will give them a chance.

All in all, I am going to predict a draw. This is game where both sides have a lot of talent and a draw is very likely. We are getting an amazing price on this result and I think we should take it with open arms. In addition to that, both teams to score is also a good bet since both sides have a lot of attacking talent.
