The UEFA Nations League 2022-23 is the third season of the international football tournament, in which the men’s teams of the 55 Unions of UEFA participate. The competition phase will continue from June to September 2022, followed by the June 2023 Nations League final and the March 2024 final (demotion playout).
France V/S Croatia At Stade De France
The UEFA Nations League has a new game this week, starting with a match between France and Croatia on Monday. Both clubs have been inconsistent thus far and will try their best to win this match.
When France hosts Croatia at the Stade de France on Monday night, active world champions will aim to climb to last place in Group 1 of the UEFA Nations League League A.
Croatia is currently third in the group and is not doing well in League A. Last week the Balkans defeated Denmark 1-0 and will repeat in the match.
Meanwhile, France is stuck at the bottom of its group and is having a disastrous season. After Les Bleus were drawn one-on-one against Austria in their last game, Les Bleus should step up their game this week and Zlatokodarić beat Denmark 1-0.
Head To Head Between Croatia And France
France has an excellent record against Croatia, having won six of the nine matches between the two countries. Croatia has never beaten France and will try to do so on Monday.
The previous encounter between the two European sides ended in a hard-fought 1-1 draw last week. Croatia performed admirably that day and hopes to shock the world this week too. Furthermore, Croatia had the same weak French record before its trip to Copenhagen and needed significant changes in the midfield to play for Croatia.
The arrival of Mateo Kovacic and Luka Modric gave new energy to the 11 Croatian teams and Mario Pasalic scored in the 69th minute of the match, which Dariچ said was “worthy” of the team’s victory. I did it. Denmark eventually lost 1-0.
Croatia V/S France Team Players
Raphaël Varane and Kylian Mbappe will be fully recovered from their injuries and will face Austria. Aurelien Tchouameni has had a good season and needs to play in this game.
Josko Gvardiol has not yet fully recovered from his injury and has been excluded from the match. Meanwhile, Ivan Perisic and Sime Vrsaljko have recovered from their injuries and are ready to choose.
France vs Croatia Predicted XI
Hugo Lloris; Lucas Hernandez, Presnel Kimpembe, Jules Kounde; Jonathan Clauss, Theo Hernandez, N’Golo Kante, Aurelien Tchouameni; Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema.
Dominik Livakovic; Duje Caleta-Car, Marin Pongracic, Sime Vrsaljko, Borna Sosa; Marcelo Brozovic, Mateo Kovacic; Mario Pasalic, Luka Modric, Josip Brekalo; Andrej Kramaric
Croatia V/S France Prediction:
This season, France has yet to make an impact in the UEFA Nations League, and they will have to fight hard to retain their title. Last week, Kylian Mbappe saved Les Bleus’ skin against Austria, and he’ll want his squad to go even farther this time. Croatia is capable of pulling off an upset on their day, but they will be up against a tough opponent on Monday. On paper, France is the superior squad and should win this match. France 3-2 Croatia is the prediction.
