Split. Let’s take a look at it in our football best betting tips for today.
For Croatia it’s a simple situation in this group right now. Zlatko Dalic’ team must win this
match to guarantee its place in League A for the next edition of the Nations League. The
World Cup finalists are having the same amount of points as the 4th Sweden right now – 3.
Even if they don’t win, Croatia still have chances to finish third. It’s going to depend on
what Sweden will do against France in Paris, though.
On Saturday Croatia lost for a 4th time in the competition this season. They faced Sweden
in a crunch game in Solna, but suffered a 1-2 defeat. In the 81th minute Sweden’s
Danielsson scored himself an own goal, but his team was already two goals ahead.
Portugal on the other hand won’t be defending their Nations League trophy this year.
Selecao will finish second this group after their 0-1 defeat against France on Saturday.
They can’t reach the knockout phase of the competition anymore.
Portugal’s head coach Fernando Santos tried his best and used his most dangerous XI
against France, but it didn’t work. In attack Selecao had a fearsome trident with Cristiano
Ronaldo, Joao Felix and Bernardo Silva, but France did their job and took the win.
