Both teams haven’t been at their best so far, which is why Croatia vs Scotland Euro 2020 may be a fixture for the purists. Neither side have only shown glimpses of what they are capable of, which is surprising in Croatia’s case seeing as they reached the World Cup final in 2018. Of course, the side is ageing and the lack of a quality striker upfront is a huge question mark. Scotland, meanwhile, are full of energy but don’t have the quality to cut teams open. This has caught them already, particularly against the Czech Republic.

In Luka Modric, Croatia still have quality and experience in midfield, something he has highlighted again last season with Real Madrid. Unfortunately, a spate of international retirements means he lacks the firepower he used to have, with Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic now sidelined. Inter’s Ivan Perisic is a threat and Mateo Kovacic is an able midfield deputy, but a lot will depend on how they move the ball into the strikers’ feet and create guilt-edged opportunities to put Scotland’s defence to the sword.
Patrik Schick showed Scotland what top-class tournament football is about when he scored from near the halfway line and dampened the Tartan Army’s hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages. The Scot’s Euro 2020 winner odds were never overly healthy, yet supporters would love to cheer Andy Robertson and his men to a win in the fortress that is Hampden Park. Of course, it may still happen since Scotland have caused problems, with the Czech and English keepers being forced into several classy saves to keep the opposition out.
As it stands, the betting on Euro 2020 via LeoVegas Sport has Croatia as the firm favourites for the win at 1/1 (evens). Scotland are 27/10, which isn’t a ridiculously long price when you factor the strength and quality of the squads into account. LeoVegas quotes the likelihood of a draw as 9/4. The latter symbolises how the bookies believe Scotland may secure a result, as does the fact that the odds for both teams to score are 5/6 and 4/5 respectively. If you read between the lines, it tells you that the teams are pretty equally matched due to their lack of firepower up front.
It would be nice to see Scotland take the victory. However, everything points to the fact that Croatia will dominate the game, including the current odds with LeoVegas Sport. Of course, 1/1 for Croatia to win doesn’t signify amazing value, which is why you may be searching for different bets. One we like is under 1.5 goals in total at 2/1. Scoring is going to be the toughest obstacle for either team, and this wager plays into the most likely outcomes. For example, a 1-0 Croatia win or a 0-0 draw.
