England v Croatia tips: Who’ll seal Nations League glory?

| 18.11.2018

It’s all to play for when England face Croatia this afternoon, with top spot of Nations League Group A4 at stake.  

Whoever wins at Wembley will secure first-place. But Spain will get the glory if the spoils are shared here. To add even more tension, a 0-0 draw sees Croatia relegated. But a score draw would mean England drop down to the second-tier.

This one could be a classic. And we’ve got all you need to know ahead of kick-off.

Match Odds

Our traders have England as 20/23 favourites to get the job done.

Croatia are 29/10 to get a valuable win, while Spain will be hoping for the draw at 13/5.

With plenty of attacking football on the field, we go 7/4 for England and Over 2.5 Goals.

And after the 0-0 draw between these sides last month, there’s 11/1 about a repeat scoreline.

Talking Tactics

England’s speed on the break caused real problems for Spain in their last Nations League outing. Gareth Southgate will hope Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford on either side of Harry Kane can have a similar impact here.

But he’ll be aware that his team couldn’t get the ball off Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic in their World Cup semi-final loss. The England boss could look to beef up midfield this time with Eric Dier alongside Jordan Henderson.

Croatia will look to control the tempo of the game, but they may miss Mario Mandzukic’s physical presence to tie things together in the final third.

Goalscorer Odds

As ever, Kane is favourite to open the scoring at 14/5. The Tottenham Hotspur hitman is also 19/20 to net anytime.

Sterling will be full of confidence after ending his England drought against Spain. He’s 19/10 to score here. Jadon Sancho is also a 23/10 shot to open his international account.

The visitors will be looking to Ante Rebic and Andrej Kramaric to do the damage. They’re both 8/1 to score first, or 11/4 and 14/5 respectively to bag at any point.
