Croatia v Spain Match Preview & Trends

Spain hope to keep the Modric magic at bay

Copenhagen is the setting for this last 16 clash between Croatia and Spain. With the winners of this tie set to face the victor of the France vs Switzerland match in the quarter-finals in St Petersburg, it should be a fascinating contest between two quality footballing sides. World cup finalists Croatia are not the force they were a few years ago but still have the ability to trouble any side. Similarly, Spain are evolving from their previously successful era and transitioning a lot of youngsters into the squad under the guidance of Luis Enrique.

36-year-old Luka Modric is still the main man for Croatia and the former Balon D’or winner certainly showed his prowess in the win over Scotland. Modric led by example, scoring a sublime goal to captain his side through a tough group with the Czech Republic and England. Spain have typically been excellent on the ball in this tournament so far but struggled to find the net early on. They turned that around in the last match, beating Slovakia 5-0 and building confidence amongst the young group.

Croatia covered 327.9km in the group stages and have maintained a passing accuracy of 86% and averaging 54% possession. The Croats have made 92 passes into the attacking third with 49 of those in key areas. They have completed 9/42 crosses, which left them at 21%. In comparison, Spain has covered 209.1km in the first three games, maintaining a passing accuracy of 88% and averaged 69% possession. The Spanish made 218 passes into the attacking third with 106 of those in key areas. They completed 17/81 crosses, which left them at 21%.

Key trends

Croatia has never got passed a Euro quarter-final

Croatia won the last meeting between these side 3-2 in 2018
