Croatia vs Scotland: Head to Head Prediction

It is a do-or-die game for both the squad. Either of the team has to win this match rather than settling for a draw, which would see England and the Czech Republic qualify for Round of 16

Scotland misses out on their star player Billy Gilmour due to health and safety protocols, who had an impressive show against England who isolates himself for 10 days. We expect Croatia to have enough in them to get past a spirited Scotland side.
