The Croatian national football team is well positioned to qualify for the 2024 European Championship. With a win against Armenia on Tuesday at 8:45 p.m. in Maksimir, they will secure their direct qualification. After winning 2-0 against Latvia and drawing between Wales and Armenia, Croatia no longer needs to calculate their position and can go for three points to secure their spot in Germany.
Despite their slim chances of qualifying, coach Zlatko Dalić has emphasized the importance of taking the game seriously and not underestimating Armenia. He has urged the team to approach the match with maximum seriousness and intelligence, reminding them not to disappoint their fans and aim for qualification for a major competition.
Croatia is considered a big favorite against Armenia, having previously beaten them in September with Andrej Kramarić scoring the only goal in their previous encounter. Bookmakers have put the coefficient at 1.20 for a Croatian victory, 14 for an Armenian victory, and 6.00 for a draw. The match will be available on Sportklub 7.
Coach Dalić’s words echoed what many experts believe – that this is not an easy match for Croatia despite being favorites to win. With the pressure of securing qualification weighing heavily on both teams, it’s going to be an exciting game that could determine whether or not Croatia makes it to the next major tournament.
As such, it’s important for both teams to come prepared with their best tactics and strategies. While Croatia may have won convincingly in September, they cannot afford to take Armenia lightly this time around as they could pull off an upset if given half a chance.
Overall, this match promises to be a thrilling affair with both teams determined to give it their all in order to secure qualification for the 2024 European Championship.
