Croatia vs. Albania Prediction on June 19, 2024

Match info

On Wednesday, June 19, Group B games of the men’s 2024 UEFA European Football Championship hosted by Germany will kick off its second round. If Croatia and Albania want to have any chance of qualifying for the Euro 2024 knockouts, they’ll need to get over their opening-match losses and bounce back swiftly. The former will likely succeed in this. After all, Croatian betting sites’ odds don’t lie. The game is set to begin at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg at 3 p.m. local time.

Meeting statistics

The current form of Croatia

Zlatko Dalić’s team suffered an infuriating 0-3 loss against Spain in the Group B opener, which has raised concerns. However, the head coach of the “Blazers” is aware that his men had chances to close the gap following an awful first half.

Even after the loss, Croatia should continue in the same direction. Luka Modrić, Mateo Kovačić, and Marcelo Brozović—the reliable midfield trio—will start, with Ivan Perišić making his ACL injury comeback to take his place on the bench for the time being. Despite their offensive shortcomings, Ante Budimir and Andrej Kramarić remain the superior choices for line leaders. We wouldn’t be surprised if the back undergoes alterations for the duel against Albania.

The current form of Albania

Hours later, after Croatia’s setback, Albania scored after just 23 seconds, but they were unable to avoid a loss against Italy. However, “The Red and Blacks” are also aware that, with better fortune, they could’ve secured a point.

Armando Broja’s position in the starting XI might be in jeopardy following a largely inconspicuous performance against Italy. Head coach Sylvinho is hoping that the striker will simply find his rhythm again following a difficult season-ending loan spell at Fulham. The last game’s most memorable goal was scored by Nedim Bajrami, who entered the Euro’s history with the fastest netting ever in just 23 seconds.

Head-to-head

This is the first-ever meeting between Croatia and Albania.

Match analytics

As these two play just hours before the main event of Group B—the “Group of Death”—between Spain and Italy, a second defeat for either team on Wednesday afternoon might very well be the end of their playoff chances.

Croatia may have lost 0-3 to Spain, but they still had plenty of opportunities in front of their rival’s goalkeeper and demonstrated their ability. Far and between, Albania had some bright moments in a defeat to Italy, yet their disparity in skill compared to Croatia is evident both on paper and ought to be far more pronounced in practice. W1 (Croatia) and Number Of Goals 2-3 – Yes with odds of 2.85 at DoubleBet seems like a reasonable bet.
