It is expected that the Spain national team will play the match with the following expected formation:


Goalkeeper: Unai Simon.


Defense Line: Cesar Azpilicueta, Eric Garcia, Aymeric Laporte, Jordi Alba.


Midfield: Rodri, Pedri Rodriguez, Sergio Busquets.

Spain qualified after being runner-up in Group E with 5 points, after a broad victory over Slovakia with five goals without a response in the final round and a draw with Sweden and Poland, respectively.


On the other hand, Croatia qualified after collecting 4 points in the fourth group runner-up, including a loss against England, a draw against the Czech Republic with a goal each, and a 3-1 victory at the expense of Scotland.


The history of the confrontations of the Croatian and Spain teams comes before in 8 matches in all tournaments, Spain won 4 matches against 3 victories in favor of Croatia, and one draw between them.


The confrontations of the two teams in the European Nations Cup were few and did not exceed only two matches. Spain won one and scored two goals against Croatia, and the latter won another and scored the same number of goals.


Modric, 36, led Croatia to the last 16 thanks to a stunning goal in a 3-1 victory over Scotland, and also assisted Ivan Perisic.


The 2018 Ballon d'Or winner remains an icon for Croatia and perhaps the most talented player.


Spain players know Modric well after nine magical seasons with Real Madrid, but they will not be able to reveal hidden information about the midfielder, after Luis Enrique decided not to include any player from Real Madrid.


The match is difficult on both sides, as Spain, the queen of possession and passing, finally ended its struggle to score five goals against Slovakia, while Modric, Perisic and their companions won their last match against Scotland 3-1 after scoring a single goal in the previous two matches (1-1 against the Czech Republic). And before that, a loss against England with a clean goal, to end the doubts that hovered around the “chessboard” team.


Spain wants to win a title that it has not missed in the last 3 editions, except in the last edition, after it failed to win the third title in a row at the level of the European Nations Cup after being crowned in 2008 and 2012.
