And again, one of the surprising teams is in the hole. Croatia is expecting Denmark. The team around Croatia already demonstrated their strength in the Group D and managed to finish first with three consecutive wins of three group games. Denmark already had difficulties in their group and was the runner-up of Group C in the World Cup 2018. Therefore, we expect Croatia to win the upcoming clash. The game will start at 8:00 PM CET.
Croatia wants to reach the quarterfinals – Fancied team
The fact that Croatia will reach the knockout rounds was not already settled when looking at the Group D beforehand. But, that they will finish first in front of Argentina and Nigeria could not have been expected. Nigeria was easily beaten, and Messi and Co from Argentina did not stand a chance while playing against Croatia in the group stage. Now, they want to set their focus on the upcoming game instead of relying on their play style of the group stage. Denmark should be able to beat, but we have had numerous surprises this year.
Denmark wants to go viral – Underdog in the betting tip
Before the World Cup started, many experts discussed where Denmark will be found after the group stage had been settled. However, Peru and Australia were simply not transparent enough. Surely expected was that France will finish first and one of those three teams were expected as the runner-up. After a win against Peru followed two draws against the other two teams. Not the best performance but it was enough. Nevertheless, we expect a loss of Denmark in the round of 16.
