Croatia probably doesn't belong among the main favorites to lift the trophy at the upcoming EURO, but Zlatko Dalic and his team certainly hope to repeat their successes from a few previous tournaments. Under Dalic, Croatia have so far second and third places at the last two World Cups and a 1/8 final loss in the previous EURO. Croatia are on a good form with four wins in a row, including two friendlies from March. In the previous game, they won 4-2 against Egypt. Before the EURO, Croatia will play friendlies against North Macedonia and Portugal. 

North Macedonia have only one appearance at the major tournaments. The only time happened at the previous EURO, where they lost all three group stage matches. In the qualifications for the upcoming EURO, North Macedonia were in a tough group with England, Italy, and Ukraine, so they didn't have a realistic chance for much success. North Macedonia have not won in the last four matches. In the previous game, they lost 1-0 in a friendly against Montenegro. 

Croatia vs North Macedonia pick: Croatia to win and cover AH -1.5 spread

North Macedonia are not even close to Croatia's level. North Macedonia played 1-1 against Moldova and lost 1-0 against Montenegro in two matches from March. Croatia are too good for that, so we should expect Zlatko Dalic's team to win and cover AH -1.5 spread in this match.

Croatia team news

The core of the Croatian team is still the same. The leader of the team is 38-year-old Luka Modric. The other important players are Josko Gvardiol and Mateo Kovacic. The team looks slighly weaker than in Qatar, but they are still too good for most EURO teams and surely too good for team like North Macedonia.

North Macedonia

North Macedonia team news

North Macedonia are much weaker than Croatia. They have only three players in the top five European leagues (Stole Dimitrievski - Rayo Vallecano, Agon Elezi - Bochum, and Eljif Elmas - RB Leipzig). North Macedonia, with this level of players, is nowhere near an adequate level to play at the major tournament.
