Croatia vs Denmark match preview
Croatia’s well-rounded squad has finally started to fire at a major tournament with 2018 potentially being the year this nation finally fulfils its potential.
Zlatko Dalić’s side breezed through Group C, to become just one of three teams to have earned a maximum nine points, thrashing Argentina 3-0 in the process.
They also managed record wins over Nigeria and Iceland, demonstrating that this is a team that should be considered as a real contender to go all the way.
Denmark finished as runners-up to France, having taken five points from their three matches.
Christian Eriksen helped them to a 1-0 win over Peru, which they followed up with a 1-1 draw with Australia and then a goalless draw with France.
Although the Danes are not a side that look strong enough to go any further in the competition, the quality of Eriksen could prove to be a factor if they hope to spring a surprise.
The winner of this Round of 16 tie will face either Spain or Russia in the quarter-finals.
