There is nothing more to come
That what probably describes the match between England and Croatia the best on the third day of play of the group B at the U 19 EURO. England is already fixed as the group winner and even if Croatia wins this match they have to travel home after this encounter. Kick-off on the 18th of July is at 12 p.m..
Current performance of England
Unblemished. That’s the word that describes the performance of England at the U19 EURO. The first match against France as well as the second match against the Netherlands has been won. Both have been won with a score of 2:1. The victory against the Netherlands has been especially for the moral of the team because they have not only won the match with their last minute goal they also have won the group. Even when they would lose against Croatia their first position is already fixed. This takes away any pressure from the young players. Now they probable want to finish the group stage with the maximum of points and also want to win this third match. However it is also known that the U19 national team has often some problems with weaker teams as we have seen in March against Greece when the match ended with a score of 1:1. Or when they have only closely won against Georgia with a score of 2:1 but this does change nothing, they are still the favourites in this match.
Current performance of Croatia
Dreariness in Croatia. While the A national team has been kicked out by Portugal in the last minute at the EURO 2016 in France, the U19 team already has to leave the tournament after the second match of the group stage. After two matches they are still without any points. Not only the first match against the Netherlands has been lost with a score of 1:3 also at the second match against France they had to suffer a defeat with a score of 0:2. Now they are not even have a chance to get on the third position and safe a starting grid for the world championship 2017 in South Korea. One cause for this is the UEFA mode where the direct duel means more than the goal difference. However if you read the goal difference of Croatia it makes it not better. Nonetheless the team of Ferdo Milin has a positive end results in this year. Out of five matches they have won three and two matches have been lost in Germany. One thing that sticks out is that the U19 team always starts with a great performance but after some time the performance is declining. In addition the defence is not very strong. This could be also a problem against England.
Betting tip for this match
England has a lot of self-esteem at the moment. Croatia on the other side is very disappointed. One good thing is that both teams can play without any pressure. Soccer takes mainly place in the mind of the players so that’s why England will win this match in the end due to their mental strength. Our tip: tip 1.
