Italy v Albania: Group B - UEFA EURO 2024
Croatia take on Italy this week

UEFA Euro 2024 is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Croatia take on an impressive Italy side in an important clash at the Red Bull Arena Leipzig on Monday. Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and will want to win this game.

Croatia vs Italy Preview

Italy are currently in second place in Group B of the UEFA Euro 2024 standings and have stepped up to the plate over the past week. The Azzurri slumped to a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Spain in their previous game and will need to bounce back this week.

Croatia, on the other hand, are rooted to the bottom of their group and have struggled this month. The Croatian outfit played out a 2-2 draw against Albania last week and will need to take it up a notch in this fixture.

Croatia vs Italy Head-to-Head and Key Numbers

  • Croatia have an impressive record against Italy and have won three out of the nine matches played between the two teams, as opposed to Italy's paltry one victory.
  • Croatia lost the first-ever meeting between the two teams in 1942 but have managed to remain unbeaten in their last eight matches against Italy in all competitions.
  • Italy have never defeated Croatia in a major international tournament and have lost one of their two such games, with their defeat coming in the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
  • Croatia will play their fifth game against the reigning champions of the UEFA European Championship, with each of these games coming in the group stage of the competition.
  • Italy have lost their final group game in only one of the last nine appearances in the UEFA European Championship.

Croatia vs Italy Prediction

Italy have an impressive squad at their disposal but were outplayed by Spain last week. The Azzurri could seal their place in the knock-outs with a victory this week and have a point to prove going into this game.

Croatia have been surprisingly meek at Euro 2024 and seem a mere shadow of their formerly illustrious selves. Italy are currently in better form and should be able to win this game.

Prediction: Croatia 1-3 Italy
