Croatia vs Scotland Bet Builder Tips – 17/1 Bet as both look to avoid elimination

Scotland predictions and betting tips

This match is a direct battle for the third spot in Group D, with England and Czech Republic almost certain to occupy the first two places in the group.

Croatia was expected to improve after the 1-0 defeat against England in the opening game, but it was another below-par performance against the Czech Republic, which only resulted in a 1-1 draw.

This means that they are third in the group with 1 point, but a win here would almost certainly get them into the next round. As for Scotland, they were impressive in their goalless draw against England, with their defence particularly standing out. A win here would also probably mean progression in the knockout stages.

Croatia to Win

Although it seems that Croatia is going through a rough patch due to the change of the generation that brought them so much joy in the 2018 World Cup, they still have more than enough quality in their team to be among the best 16 teams in this tournament.

A win against Scotland would guarantee them at least the 3rd place in the group, so they will be full of motivation to get the job done and progress to the knockout stages. Scotland was impressive against England, but this game is of a different breed, so Croatia may well be too much for them to handle. You can back Croatia to win, and the odds are 13/10.

 

Ante Rebic to Score First

Rebic was impressive in the 2020/21 season with AC Milan, but he has struggled to replicate that form in the tournament so far. However, his class is obvious, and it seems only a matter of time before he hits the ground running.

This game is tailor-made for him to show that he can be one of the leaders of this Croatia generation, and help his nation to reach the Round of 16. He is quick, his finishing is also on a high level, and we expect him to cause serious concerns for Scotland’s defence. We expect him to score first and open the road for Croatia into the knockout stage. The odds for Ante Rebic to score first are 11/2.

Under 2.5 Goals

This game is so important for both nations, so they cannot allow any experimentation and expansive, open football. They have struggled to score goals in their previous games anyway, and given the importance of this match, we expect the same trend to continue.

They will be careful not to allow too much space for the opposition team, as both nations have quick strikers who can hurt the opponents on the counter-attack. This will be a tight, cagey game, and you can expect less than 2.5 goals scored here. The odds for that outcome stand at 3/4.
