Croatia: Strong performances in group phase (Recent Form: WWWWLW)

Croatia comfortably advanced to the knockout phase of World Cup, winning all 3 group matches. They face Denmark on Sunday in last 16 in Nizhny Novgorod. “They are very compact, they know how to stop their opponents. They allow few chances to score for the opposing team and they can be very dangerous on the attack. And they have Christian Eriksen, who is one of the best playmakers in Europe and the world,” said midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

Probable line-up: Subasic; Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Strinic; Rakitic, Modric, Brozovic; Rebic, Perisic, Mandzukic

Denmark: Need to rise their level (Recent Form: DDWWDD)

Denmark collected 5 points in group C, which was enough to finish second. However, their level of play could’ve been better and they need to improve in order to have chance in the play-off stage. Now it’s time for a match against Croatia. “We're going to go for it. It's a one-off game, so anything can happen. We love games like this. We played against Ireland and I like play-offs. Anything can happen in a one-off game, so we're looking forward to it. Croatia play as a team and they have a very strong midfield, in particular. You know that in the knockout stage the teams will get stronger and stronger the closer you get to a trophy. It's what you expect in the knockout stages — you get to play against big names and big stars, so playing against Modric and Croatia will be special,” said Eriksen.

Probable line-up: Schmeichel; Daisgaard, Kjaer, Christensen, Larsen; Zanka, Delaney; Poulsen, Eriksen, Sisto; Cornelius


To sum up, it seems that Croatia are favourites of this clash. They showed better football than Denmark during group stage and perhaps Croatia may be able to get an another victory.
