France vs Croatia (Tuesday 8 September) could be a crucial match in deciding who progresses from Group A3. France will have been delighted by a 1-0 away win against a gritty Swedish side in their opening match, but they’re already significantly behind Portugal on goal difference after they beat Croatia 4-1.
That should mean France will be looking to achieve a similar score-line against Croatia, while the Croatians will also surely need to get something from this game if they’re to stay in the hunt for a place in the Nations League finals. That should mean this is an entertaining game and France to win and both teams to score is our France vs Croatia tip.
World Cup winners France haven’t been thoroughly convincing since they won in Russia in 2018, and the likes of Moldova, Turkey, and Albania have all breached the French defence on their travels since 2019. But despite not reaching the last Nations League final, France did beat both Germany and Netherlands 2-1 at home in their last Nations League campaign.
Croatia didn’t score against Spain in their last Nations League group but grabbed the first at Wembley in a 2-1 defeat to England. They’ve also scored in all five away games since. But they’ve only won one of those, drawing with Wales and Azerbaijan and losing to England, Hungary, and Portugal.
The Croatians conceded four goals against Portugal in their opening Nations League game this time and they also conceded that many when losing to France in the 2018 World Cup final. But they did score two in reply in that match, with all six goals coming in the first 69 minutes.
We might not get treated to quite such an entertaining game this time but, with plenty at stake for both teams, 11/4 (3.75) or bigger about France to win and both teams to score looks a value bet. That’s why it’s our tip for France vs Croatia.
