In a repeat of the 2018 World Cup (WC) Final, Croatia take on France in this UEFA Nations League (UNL) Group A1 clash, in what will be the second competitive H2H on Croatian soil, after France’s 2-1 UNL win here in November 2020. That defeat marked the beginning of a four-match losing UNL streak for Croatia, bookended by a 3-0 loss to Austria last Friday.

Zlatko Dalić will hope defeat against Austria was merely a blip for his side, who were unbeaten in their ten prior competitive outings inside 90 minutes (W6, D4), partly thanks to a defence that hadn’t conceded in five of the last seven games in that run. History is against Croatia here, however, as FIFA’s 16th-ranked nation have avoided defeat in just two of their previous eight international home matches against nations currently ranked higher by FIFA (W1, D1, L6)!

Reigning world champions France make this trip to Split after suffering a 2-1 home loss at the hands of in-form Denmark on Friday, ending their seven-match winning run in the process. That result continued a peculiar trend too, as each of France’s previous four UNL fixtures have witnessed the side to score first lose the game (FRA: W3, L1).

One explanation for the Denmark defeat may be the absence of manager Didier Deschamps, whose father passed away earlier in the week, but the WC winning boss will be back in the dugout for this game. Deschamps return could prove key to Les Bleus who have emerged victorious in their last three UNL away group games, two of which came via a 1-0 scoreline.

Players to watch: Andrej Kramarić has scored in four of Croatia’s last six internationals, three times before the hour mark, whilst France’s Antoine Griezmann has found the net before half-time in each of the previous three H2Hs.

Hot streak: France’s last four UNL games have witnessed 2+ goals after the hour mark.
