Croatia vs Spain: Head to Head Prediction

A big blow to the Croatian Squad before the Round of 16, Ivan Perisic has been tested positive for COVID -19 and will have to isolate himself for the Round of 16 games as a part of COVID Protocol. 

The Croatian International was the core of the squad alongside Luka Modric in the midfield and has given Spain a great chance to have a psychological advantage for the game.
