England vs Croatia Prediction & Betting Tips

Euro 2020 Betting Tips: England play Croatia at Wembley Staddium on Sunday 13 June, Kick-off: 16:00. Read on for our free match preview and prediction for this football fixture.

England have not traded at such short betting odds to win a major tournament for many years, with the bookmakers wanting to keep Gareth Southgate’s team onside due to a number of talented young players breaking on to the scene in the past few years and they are also big favourites to win this opener at Wembley Stadium.

England vs Croatia Preview

When Croatia roundly outplayed England three years ago in a 2018 World Cup semi-final, then you might have been amazed to think that the latter would be odds-on in the betting to beat the Blazers when it came to a Euro 2020 opener, although it appears that the Three Lions have strode forward since that tournament.

Harry Kane is even more dangerous as a striker, with the Tottenham Hotspur forward flanked by the likes of Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Phil Foden and Jack Grealish. The latter pair have been particularly eye-catching during the 2020/21 Premier League season.

Our betting tip is that England will enjoy a winning start to this competition and they might benefit from home advantage and having a settled training camp, with Harry Maguire expected to be passed fit in order to take his place alongside John Stones, while Mason Mount might end up being the beating heart of the team.

Expert England vs Croatia Betting Tips

Our prediction is that Croatia will struggle to make an impact in this clash and hope to secure a draw before easier fixtures against Scotland and Czech Republic, with Luka Modric continuing to be an important player for the visitors although Mario Mandzukic is no longer available as the attacking battering ram.

Similarly, Ivan Rakitic doesn’t turn out for the national team anymore and there’s a feeling that the old guard might struggle in this first game, with England taken to win on the Full-Time Result betting market.
