Croatia odds: To win Euro 2020, how far will they go, top scorer and more

Croatia will be hoping they can bounce back in style this summer after suffering heartbreak in the 2018 World Cup final against France. 

After beating England in extra-time of their semi-final clash, France shattered Croatia’s dreams of a first-ever World Cup trophy with Les Bleus running out 4-2 victors in the final.

Zlatko Dalic’s side picked themselves up to sail through their qualification group for Euro 2020, finishing top of Group E. However, they have looked far from convincing in recent months, losing six of their last 11. 

There remains some optimism given their run in Russia three years ago, but just how well can they do?

Croatia Euro 2020 odds

Croatia are a huge 33/1 to lift the European Championship trophy this summer.

It looks good value, should they rediscover their mojo this summer. Their squad remains relatively unchanged since the Russian World Cup, which should offer a glimmer of hope.

If Croatia win Group D

  • If Croatia were to win Group D at odds of 3/1 with 888sport, this would be their route through to the final.
  • Last 16: The second-placed side from Group F (Hungary, Portugal, France or Germany) in London on June 29.
  • Quarter-finals: The winner of Last-16 match 8, which is played between the winner of Group E (Spain favourites) and the third-place team in A, B, C or D.
  • Semi-finals: Likely the winner of Group C (The Netherlands expected) or the runners-up from Group A/B (likely contenders are Turkey, Wales, Switzerland, Denmark, Russia).

If Croatia qualify from Group D

  • If Croatia don’t win Group D, and merely qualify, it could become a lot more complicated.
  • Last 16: The second-placed Group E side, which could be any of Spain, Sweden, Poland and Slovakia in Copenhagen on June 28th.
  • Quarter Finals: The winner of Last-16 match 6, which is played between the winner of Group F (which includes Portugal, Germany and France) and the third place in A, B or C, likely contenders for which are Wales, Turkey, Switzerland, Russia, Denmark, Ukraine and Austria.
  • Semi-finals: The winner of that Quarter Final will play the winner of Quarter Final Match 1, which could include the winner of Group A or Group B (expected to be Italy and Belgium, respectively).

If Croatia finish third in their group and do enough to be ranked among the top third-placed teams, they would play the winner of Group E and then join the path they’d take if they won Group D (talk about over-complicating things!

Croatia Golden Boot odds

Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic leads the way as their favourite to win the Golden Boot this summer. The Croatian forward netted three times at the 2018 World Cup – including one in the semi-final and final itself.
