UEFA Nations League
CRO vs ESP Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
In the forthcoming UEFA Nations League campaign we have the world cup runners up Croatia paying a visit to Spain for their second game in the group after the 1-1 dead rubber with Portugal in the international friendly. Croatia’s world cup run would be a dream come true but they were really unfortunate to miss out on the trophy against the start thudded France in the world cup. But ever since, their world cup dream came to an end, their star striker Mario Mandzukic took retirement from international football alongside their goalie Danijel Subasic. So Croatia may have the best midfielders but they are clearly lacking someone who would execute their threats in the opponent’s penalty box. The absence of Mario Mandzukic will be crucial as Croatia lacks predators to help them with the goals. Luka Modric is expected to feature in this game and lock horns with his team mate, skipper of Real Madrid and Spain, Sergio Ramos.
The former world champions and Euro winners would be riding high as they come into this game after beating The Three Lions in the opening game of the UEFA Nations League. It would at least satisfy them that they are the only team to have bagged a point so far in the UEFA Nations League, after their terrible form in the world cup when they were forced off the world cup by the hosts Russia. Luis Enrique would not want to rock the boat so much because a few star players have already retired leaving crucial places empty to be filled. However, this game promises to deliver a plenty of action as both the teams would stock up everything they can throw at their opponents in this game.
UEFA Nations League, Spain vs Croatia is to be played at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero, Elche at 19:45 PM ET UK. A thrilling game awaits everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

CRO vs ESP Dream11 Playing 11 – (Probable) –
Spain – David De Gea (GK), Marcos Alonso, Sergio Ramos, Nacho, Daniel Carvajal, Saul Niguez, Sergio Busquets, Thiago Alcantara, Isco Alarcon, Rodrigo Moreno, Marco Asensio
Croatia– Lovre Kalinic (GK), Sime Vrsaljko, Tin Jedvaj, Matej Mitrovic, Borna Barisic, Ivan Rakitic, Luka Modric, Marko Pjaca, mateo Kovacic, Ivan Perisic, Ivan Santini
Head 2 Head- 4 official meetings
Draw – 1
Spain – Andres Iniesta, David Silva, and Gerard Pique won’t be playing after having retired from international football. Saul Niguez did start the last match and scored a goal against England, so we are expecting him to hold on to his place, while Alvaro Morata could be preferred over Iago Aspas who was ineffective at Wembley. Diego Costa is out due to some personal reasons.
Croatia – Mario Mandzukic, Danijel Subasic and Vedran Corluka all have retired, so won’t be available for selection, while Dejan Lovren remains out injured for the visitors. Midfielder Ivan Rakitic is likely to start after missing the friendly with Portugal, with the Barcelona player set to win his 100th cap.
Spain– Rodrigo Moreno
Croatia– Ivan Perisic
CRO vs ESP Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
We are backing the La Roja to win in this ga=me because they would be playing at home and would get the home advantage in this game. Moreover, their win against the Englishmen in the last game would give them enough confidence to take on the depleted world cup runners in this game and are most likely to be clinical about it.
