Croatia v Denmark- World Cup 2018

Croatia v Denmark Betting Preview – World Cup 2018 1st July – 7.00 p.m

So far at the 2018 World Cup, Croatia have been one of the most impressive sides. They really confirmed their status of being a dark horse at the event when they produced a stunning 3-0 victory over Argentina and they were such good value for money for that victory. They get to take on fellow Europeans Denmark for a place in the quarter-finals and for our Croatia v Denmark predictions we see more success ahead for Croatia.

Croatia News and Form

Croatia have looked strong at Russia 2018 and are going to be a force to be reckoned with. They secured a good opening 2-0 win over Nigeria and then went even better as they collected a 3-0 win over Argentina. That was a mightily impressive success for Croatia and no one could deny their dark course status after that. Croatia round out the group with a 2-1 win over Iceland, conceding in the penalty spot. So they almost got the job done with three clean sheets and they have looked organised a strong at the back, and they have helped out so much by a very strong midfield. The reason they look so good against Argentina was because of how brilliant they were in the midfield area where they dominated. More of the same could be on the way and Croatia to win to nil is a 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 28th, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.) and makes for one of our top Croatia v Denmark betting tips.

Luka Modric has been one of the stars of the 2018 World Cup so far and because of his form he is worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market 4/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 28th, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.). That is a pretty good price to consider the way that he is playing. Croatia are now on a four-match winning streak, conceding just two goals in that sequence and one of those was from the penalty spot. It would not be a tremendous surprise if this fixture ended up under 2.5 goals, especially as they are going up against such a good Denmark defence. One of our top betting tips for Croatia v Denmark is under 2.5 goals at 19/40 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 28th, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.).

Denmark News and Form

Denmark are on a good unbeaten streak of form and they were always going to be in with a good chance of qualifying for the round of 16 from their group. They finished second behind France in Group C following a 1-0 win over Peru and a 1-1 draw against Australia. That set them up for a potential group winning performance against France in their final group stage game, but that was just one of those muted non-events where both sides looked as if they were happy to settle for a nil-nil draw right from the off. Just like Croatia, Denmark, the only goal conceded at this tournament has come from the penalty spot. That is another indication that this will be a low scoring match up. Both teams not to score is at 4/7 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 28th, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.).

Denmark have huge strength and quality in defence and have remarkably picked up nine clean sheets in their last 11 games, conceding just two. That is some immense form that Denmark have produced and it has helped them remain undefeated in that run of 11 games winning five of them. They have drawn four of their last six so they are just struggling to find their winning touch. The half-time draw at bet365 is going to be worth a look for your betting options because the Danes will stick at their task and be in this. Punters will have to wonder if Denmark have enough quality going forward to outscore their opponents in this one because they are far from being a prolific side. Christian Eriksen and Yussuf Poulsen have shared Denmark last four goals with two each.

Croatia v Denmark Head to Head

Croatia v Denmark Predictions

We do not see Croatia slipping up in this all-European tie. Their midfield continues to look very impressive and because Denmark are not a particularly potent threat going forward for our Croatia v Denmark prediction we are going with a Croatia to win to nil option. They can get the job done comfortably.
