Venue: Stadion Maksimir (Zagreb)
Drawn in a difficult group alongside France and Portugal, Croatia were expected to challenge for qualification. Admittedly, they do not boast a squad as strong as the others, but have a couple of talented players within their ranks.

Meanwhile, Sweden’s gaffer Janne Andersson must have been left scratching his head once the draws were completed. Thrust into such a difficult group, Blagult stand no chances of challenging for top-spot. Right now, they will turn their attentions to escaping relegation from League A.

Croatia vs Sweden Predictions

A team of Croatia’s stature ought to be competing in League A of the Nations League, as this is where they truly belong. They enjoyed a stellar 2018 World Cup campaign, reaching the final before being defeated 4-2 by champions France.

However, Vatreni have been on a decline since that success story. Rooted to the bottom of Group A3, Dalic’s men suffered heavy defeats in their first two Nations League fixtures. They have shipped eight goals in total – four between A Selecao and Les Blues.

Last time out, they were taken to the cleaners by a superior French side, Deschamp’s men recording an emphatic 4-2 victory. However, the Croats returned to winning ways in a friendly game against Switzerland few days ago, posting a narrow 2-1 win on the board.

Sweden, on the other hand, are also in something of a tailspin. While Blagult have also lost their opening two matches of the competition, they will take delight in the fact that they weren’t easily knocked aside as the Croatians.

Their first Nations League game saw them frustrate France as the World champions toiled all day to record a win. Laying blood and sweat bare on the pitch, Kylian Mbappe managed to squeeze the ball through Olsen to register the only goal of the game.

Heartbroken from that narrow defeat, Sweden were pushed aside by Portugal in matchday 2, the latter putting two unanswered goals past them. As things stand, they are yet to record a single victory in the competition. Perhaps, more worryingly, Blagult are yet to score a single goal in the competition.

For all their recent struggles, these two teams will be heading into this fixture in good form, having recorded wins in their last games. Partaking in friendly games, while Croatia got the better of Switzerland; Sweden outclassed Russia to get back on the winning train.

Who will win the match?

Croatia vs Sweden Predictions

These two teams are in dire need of points at the moment, and cannot afford a defeat. Having lost their first two games, they will be desperate to bring their losing streak to a halt. As such, these sides will likely approach this game with caution.

Of course, Croatia should dominate proceedings but Isak may just about provide a touch of brilliance for his side to share the spoils. A double chance backing Croatia for victory is in order, with no more than three goals between both sides.
