England

The England national team pulled out a lucky ticket in qualifying for Euro 2020. In the group Gareth Southgate's team ended up with the Czech Republic, Kosovo, Bulgaria and Montenegro. In such a company, the “three lions” felt more than confident and predictably turned out to be the strongest in it. The second Czech Republic ended up at a distance of six points, Kosovo was 10 points behind at all.

After a successful campaign in the selection for the European Championship, the British were in for a real failure in the League of Nations. In the group with Belgium, Denmark and Iceland, England was considered one of the main contenders for the first line, but in the end it turned out to be the third. It should be noted that the British were ahead of the fourth Iceland by 10 points.

As for the selection for the World Cup, then England was lucky again. Hungary, Albania, Poland and even more so Andorra and San Marino are unlikely to be able to resist. After three rounds, the “three lions” lead the table with nine points, being two points ahead of the second Hungary.

Before the start of the European Championship, England played two friendly matches with Austria and Romania, winning both with the same 1:0 score at home. In a duel with the Austrians Trent Alexander-Arnold was injured. The injury would not allow him to play at the Euro. Ben White took his place in the application.

Croatia

The Croatian national team, unlike its today's rival, had to fight for a ticket to the European Championship. In the group "checkers" were together with Wales, Slovakia, Hungary and Azerbaijan. Almost until the last round the fate of the first line remained unknown, but in the end Zlatko Dalich's team guaranteed it, being ahead of Wales by only three points.

In the League of Nations Croatia performed simply ugly. The group was very strong. Except the Croats, France, Portugal and Sweden fought for a ticket to the playoffs. As a result, all achievements of the Croats in this tournament were limited to three points. Thanks to a 2:1 victory over Sweden, they managed to bypass it and stay in League "A", but at the same time the Croatians were 10 points behind the second Portugal.

The start of qualification for the World Cup was overshadowed by an unexpected 0:1 defeat from Slovenia. However, Croatia beat Cyprus (1:0) and Malta (3:0) in the next two rounds, having managed with six points to reach the first line in their group, where Russia and Slovakia will also fight for tickets to the World Cup.

In friendly matches before the start of Euro 2020, Croatia was not impressed, having a 0:1 defeat from Belgium and a 1:1 draw with Armenia at home. So, what is the free soccer predictions for today?

Prediction

The England national team is considered one of the main contenders for the gold of Euro 2020. They are the favorite today and will certainly try to justify it. The victory over the Croats will practically open the doors to the playoffs from the first line for the “three lions”. The Czech Republic and Scotland are unlikely to be able to leave the British without points, so it is very important for England strategically to win in the first round.

Croatia will undoubtedly try to give a fight, but today England is objectively stronger. They are in excellent shape and will play at their native Wembley. The British are unlikely to be left without a victory today.

We believe that the favorite will have no problems. Prediction is for victory for England. In bookmaker 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.70.

England has no problems with performance. The British score a lot and regularly. Croatia is not particularly reliable in defense and it will be almost unrealistic to play against zero with checkers. However, at the same time, the Croats are also quite capable of responding with one ball. Only in one of the last six meetings with England Croatia was left without a goal.

Our second bet will be over two goals total. This bet can be placed for 1.70.

For those who prefer large odds, we offer a bet for England to win by two goals. In the line 1xBet such an outcome can be found with odds 4.95.

Place a bet on the line of 1xBet with odds of 1.70.
