Football – Europe – UEFA Nations League Betting Tips

It’s literally winner takes all in the League A Group 4 clash between England and Croatia with further betting tips for Sunday afternoon as we look forward to this do-or-die showdown.

This encounter is on a knife-edge as both teams look to either gain automatic entry into the European Championships, avoid relegation or suffer the drop down to League B. There’s everything to play for then at Wembley Stadium today.

England beat USA 3-0 in a recent friendly but the scoreline flattered England somewhat and they’ll need to up their game again when they face Croatia who have the opportunity to hurt England yet again in a major tournament.

After losing 2-1 at home to Spain, England have responded well by gaining a point in a 0-0 draw away at Croatia which they then followed up with a fantastic result in Madrid when they beat Group 4 leaders, Spain, 3-2 to keep them in the hunt for qualification for the Euro Championships.

England have only played top class international sides four times on home turf in their last 9 matches in all competitions and have drawn three (Germany, Brazil and Italy) and lost once  (Spain). They did beat Switzerland 1-0 in a recent friendly but it’s down to serious business against Croatia.

The visitors will look to heap more misery upon hosts, England, when they make their way to the nation’s capital level on points with England and all to play for in this final showdown at Wembley Stadium.

Croatia have lost just twice in their last 13 matches overall in all competitions, and have been unconvincing away from home in recent times as they’ve suffered defeats to France in the World Cup final 4-2 and a heavy 6-0 loss away at Spain in the UEFA Nations League.

They’re level on 4 points with England thanks to a 0-0 draw at home with today’s opponents as well as registering what could be a vital 3-2 home win against Spain, and having dumped England out of the recent World Cup semi-final, they’ll fancy their chances of a repeat act again this afternoon.

This match is too close to call and very difficult to see a clear winner here, but my betting tips fancy both teams to score here as they seek qualification and avoid relegation.
