Zlatko Dalic’s men were beaten 1-0 by England in their Group D opener last week while the Czech Republic pulled off an impressive 2-0 win at Hampden Park.

Croatia vs Czech Republic build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Despite having a couple of decent spells of possession, Croatia was largely kept at arm’s length by England on Sunday, with Dalic’s side managing just two shots on target throughout the match. Even so, the 2018 World Cup finalists will remain confident of their ability to progress to the knockout rounds of this tournament, though they know nothing less than a win will do here.
That’ll be no simple task against a Czech Republic side absolutely brimming with confidence after their 2-0 win over Scotland on Monday. A Patrik Schick brace was enough to do the trick for Jaroslav Šilhavý’s men, with arguably the goal of the tournament following a laser-precise header into the far corner. Avoid defeat here and the Czechs can start preparing for life in the knockout stages.
- Croatia (vs England): Livakovic; Vrsaljko, Vida, Caleta-Car, Gvardiol; Modric, Brozovic, Kovacic; Kramaric, Rebic, Perisic.
- Czech Republic (vs Scotland): Vaclik; Coufal, Celustka, Kalas, Boril; Kral, Soucek; Masopust, Darida, Jankto; Schick.
Borna Barisic was injured for Croatia’s opener against England and has been ruled out once again here. Lukas Provod is still injured for the Czech Republic, who are unlikely to change their starting XI.
Players to watch:
- Croatia: It should come as absolutely no surprise that Luka Modric completed more passes (65) than any other player on the pitch during Croatia’s defeat to England on Sunday. Whether connecting in close quarters on the left or moving inside to switch to the opposite flank, the Real Madrid man was a metronome in the middle. However, just one of his completed passes went into the England penalty area, with Croatia struggling for a focal point up-front for Modric to pass to. Given Croatia’s striking options, that is unlikely to change here, but Modric must still do his level best to start influencing things in the final third or else the Czech Republic will find it too easy to sit and frustrate their illustrious opponents.
- Czech Republic: Where do you even start when dissecting Patrik Schick‘s performance against Scotland on Monday? The Bayer Leverkusen striker led the line brilliantly as a target man for the Czechs, winning two aerial duels and making three tackles to keep Scotland’s centre-backs busy. But all of that pales in comparison to his two very different and (almost) equally impressive goals. The first was an unerringly accurate header into the far corner just before half-time, reacting quicker and jumping higher than multiple Scotland defenders. Then came his moment of magic after the break, letting rip an absolute wondergoal from just inside the Scottish half and leaving goalkeeper David Marshall looking utterly ridiculous as he came hurtling into his own net. Croatia did a great job of keeping Harry Kane quiet against England but Schick is a totally different sort of striker. Can Domagoj Vida and Co cope with his physicality and relentless nature?
