The current world champions, led by the likes of Paul Pogba and co, failed to make it to last year’s finals, and that is certainly enough reason for them to push hard for a spot among the big boys next year.

Two years on, and it is safe to say Croatia have failed to build on a sterling 2018 world cup run that saw them get to the final, as evidenced by their performances in the Nations League so far. That said, Zlatko Dalic’s men can be a tough nut to crack on their day, and they’ll certain be looking for a pound of flesh following recent results against this French side.

Croatia vs France Team News

France played out a drab 0-0 draw with Portugal in their most recent Nations League outing, in a match that failed to live up to expectations. Quality in front of goal was in short supply, as evidenced by the low number of shots on targets, with majority of the battles being fought in midfield. 

That result ensured France stayed second in what is widely regarded as the Nations League group of death, equal on points with Portugal in first, but with a considerably lesser goal difference. 

Les Bleus are on a streak of sorts, and they are currently unbeaten in 37 of their last 40 matches, as well as currently being on a four-match away winning run. 

Having failed to pick up a win in either of their first two outings, Croatia got their Nations League campaign back on track with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Sweden in their last match. 
Goals from Nikola Vlasic and Andrej Kramaric were enough to secure victory on the night, and score Croatia their first three points.

Croatia are currently placed third in Group 3, with three points from their first three games, and it would require massive effort for them to get anything out of this group.

France and Croatia are both familiar foes, with the most memorable encounter between both sides being the 2018 world cup final which the French comfortably won by 4-2. 

Asides that, both sides have gone toe to toe seven times, with Les Bleus coming out on top five times, and the Croats yet to record a win against them. The first leg of this encounter, which took place in France, saw Deschamps’ men win 4-2, and there’s no reason not to expect more of the same from them.
