England 7/10 to beat Croatia in Sunday’s European Championship contest
Competition: European Championships
Market: England win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Looking to open this summer’s delayed European Championships with a flurry on home soil, England will host Croatia on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, managing to muster themselves a pair of 1-0 victories against Austria and Romania last week, England find themselves heading into their summer adventure enjoying an extended winning run. Opening up March’s World Cup qualifiers by collecting a maximum of nine points from their three contests, The Whites are tipped as a landslide pick to secure top spot in Group D. Winning each of their last six straight matchups across all formats and also conceding just a single goal in any of those six victories, England have also continued to impress with their performances on home soil. Including those back-to-back wins against Austria and Romania in preparation last week, Sunday’s hosts have won 15 of their last 16 home fixtures across all formats, a run that stems all the way back to September 2018.
As for the visitors, failing to find any real signs of momentum during their friendly preparations last week, Croatia have only continued to gain a reputation for their continued inconsistencies. Last seen getting hit with a deserved 1-0 defeat away at fellow finalists Belgium, The Blazers also had to settle for a sluggish 1-1 draw against Armenia on June 1st. Really failing to build off of their appearance in the 2018 World Cup final, Sunday’s guests have managed to win just a pair of their last nine matchups across all formats. Suffering a 2-1 defeat the last time they faced off against England in the inaugural Nations League, it should also be noted that Croatia have endured a torrid time on foreign soil. Losing each of their last three straight fixtures on the road and with just a single away win since September 2019, we’re backing a home victory here.
