On Tuesday, Croatia will face Armenia in the last match of the group stage of the Euro qualifiers. The winner of this game will earn a spot in Germany next year. Wales is currently leading Turkey by one point and if they lose, Croatia will advance to the Euros without having to face Armenia. However, it is best not to leave anything to chance.
The last match against Latvia was a crucial one for Croatia as it was clear that Wales and Armenia had drawn. This put additional pressure on the team, which was evident during the game. Tomislav Ivković, HRT’s expert commentator, analyzed the situation in detail during his show “Stadion”. He praised Croatia’s performance and stated that their early goals prevented nervousness.
The team played 4-2-3-1 formation and maintained discipline throughout the game by not allowing Brozović and Modrić to go forward at the same time. This tactical move helped prevent a possible counterattack from Latvia. Kramarić brought back some points with his contribution to goal scoring while Guardiol played well in his left-back position despite playing differently from his position at City. Pašalić and Baturina made their debut against Latvia and were excellent according to Ivković, with Pašalić being particularly praised for his control of the ball and short step on wide areas while Baturina has a great future ahead of him and needs more experience under his belt before reaching full potential.
Croatia now faces Armenia in their final match of the group stage, they need to play a disciplined game and focus on their tactics if they want to win this match
