Why Should I Bet on Croatia vs Denmark?

Croatia have a rich history in World Cups without ever having won one and they are turning it on again at football’s premier showpiece event. Zlatko Dalic’s men have sailed through Group D and have a perfect record after winning all of their games, which included a 3-0 win over Argentina. The reward for finishing top of Group D means they take on Denmark and this should excite all of Croatia.

Croatia are a far more clinical outfit than Denmark and should qualify for the quarterfinals with relative ease. Ladbrokes has a Croatian win priced at 1.80 and that looks tremendous value.

Over/Under Prediction

Of the six matches, Denmark and Croatia have played at the World Cup, four have seen fewer than three goals scored. Under 2.5 Goals looks nailed on at odds of 1.5 with Betstar.
