France vs Croatia PredictionCrumbling at the hands of Portugal in their opening UEFA Nations League fixture, Croatia will be looking to make up for the loss when they tackle France at Stade de France on Tuesday evening.
Match status: 2020 UEFA Nations League
Kick-off:
Venue: Stade de France (Paris - Saint-Denis)
One of the favorites to make it to the finals of the tournament, France got their campaign off to a flying start, registering a narrow win over Sweden. They looked the better side throughout the game, and were good value for the victory.

Meanwhile, Croatia could not keep up with defending champions Portugal last time out, as A Selecao dragged them through the mud. Bearing in mind that another defeat could leave them in the lurch, the Blazers will be gunning for maximum points versus Les Bleus here.

France vs Croatia Team News

That beautiful run of form that saw them lift the 2018 World Cup will not be forgotten anytime soon by the French. Having defied all odds, France made their way to the final where they were confronted by this same opposition – Croatia.

In a fiercely-contested game at the Luzhniki Stadium, both teams matched each other toe-to-toe. A game littered with a flurry of goals, Deschamps men managed to come out on top, posting an emphatic 4-2 win on the board.

The sound of the final whistle was accompanied by absolute scenes as the Frenchmen went out on the town, celebrating their amazing success. Now, two years have passed since that fairytale journey and Les Bleus are targeting a good run in this year’s edition of the Nations League.

Interestingly, their next fixture will see them come up against Croatia once again as Vatreni will be looking to avenge their 2018 WC loss. Last time out, France were far from their utmost best but managed to see off a lacklustre Sweden side.

Kylian Mbappe’s individual brilliance was all that separated the two sides at fulltime. Indeed, the lead should have been doubled late in the game as Martial was hacked down in the box, resulting in a penalty. However, Griezmann sent his spot-kick effort wide off the mark.

That victory ensured the Blues got their campaign off to a winning start. This term, they will be looking to make up for their disappointment in the inaugural Nations League campaign, where they were sent crashing out in the group phases.

Indeed, France are on an imperious run of form, winning nine of their previous eleven games across all competitions. They have already booked a ticket to the Euro 2020 finals after toppling Group H of the qualifiers with 25 points to their name.

Meanwhile, Croatia were comfortably defeated versus Portugal in their opening fixture. Vatreni did not deserve to come away with anything from the game, given how horrendous they were. Ultimately, Dalic’s men were easily dispatched 4-1.

For a side that toppled Group E of the Euro qualifiers, you would have expected a much better showing. However, with a second fixture against France around the corner, the Croatians will be looking to gain maximum points to begin their quest for qualification to the finals.

France vs Croatia Predictions

When at their best, Croatia are capable of giving any side a run for their money. Apparently, they were not at their races in the previous game against Portugal. However, they are still missing a number of key players and likely to struggle in their absence. As such, expect France to record a comfortable win here.
