Team Analysis
In anticipation of the top national teams coming together for a play-off Bell ahead of Euro 2024, Portugal is projected as favorites for the game against Croatia. The match is set to take place at the Estádio Nacional in Oeiras. Portugal had a phenomenal campaign in the Euro 2024 qualifiers where they didn't drop any points and conceded just two goals, the best in their group. Their last three friendlies, however, saw them concede two goals, including an unexpected draw with Finland. On the other hand, Croatia also qualified for Euro 2024 with ease, finishing second in their group and conceding only four goals in eight matches. They have been victors in all their recent friendly matches.

Historically, Portugal has held the upper hand in meetings against Croatia, who have yet to secure a win against them. The last face-offs were during the 2020 Nations League, where Portugal achieved victories both at home and away.

Odds Analysis
Portugal has one of the strongest attacking sides in Europe, rivaled only by England and France. However, they lack a partner for central defender Ruben Dias and their goalkeeping situation is not on par with their striking power. Such vulnerabilities explain why they have been conceding two goals in recent friendlies. Meanwhile, Croatia can be expected to seize at least one scoring opportunity. Therefore, a predicted result is 2-1 in favor of Portugal. Both teams are expected to score, with odds of 1.93 at the time of the article publication. Portugal is also predicted to dominate in terms of corner kicks.

Pick: Both Teams To Score - Yes
