Croatia faces Spain in Rotterdam in the big final of the UEFA Nations League. One of these two teams will win the trophy for the first time in its history. Let’s see what we can tell you about it in our best football tips for today.
Can Croatia’s golden generation win the first trophy in this nation’s history? Most certainly nothing is impossible for such a talented squad. In the 1/2-finals the Blazers faced Netherlands and scored four goals for a 4-2 win after extra-time. This gives them hope for a really solid performance in the final as well.
Four different players scored for Croatia against the Dutch – Kramaric, Pasalic, Petkovic and Modric. Once again the head coach Zlatko Dalic and his players did something magnificent for this Balkan country. And now it can get even better.
At 38 years of age, Luka Modric remains the inspiration of the Croatian side. It’d be a great thing for him to lift a trophy with his national team as well.
But Spain remains a challenging opponent. La Roja reached the Nations League final for a second consecutive time. They lost the previous final against France, but now they are eager to win it for a first time.
In the 1/2-final Spain achieved a dramatic 2-1 win against Italy. Joselu came from the bench and became the hero with a late winning goal in the dying minutes. In the first half Yeremy Pino scored for Luis de la Fuente’s team.
De la Fuente shouldn’t make a lot of changes in Spain’s team – he can even use the same line-up from the 1/2-final. One of the changes he can make is to pick Barcelona’s Ansu Fati to start. He made a good impression playing as a substitute against Italy, but let’s see what De la Fuente will decide.
That’s the best football tips for today for the Nations League final between Croatia and Spain. Which one of these two teams will lift the trophy?
