The Croatian national football team is set to face Armenia on Tuesday at 8:45 p.m. in Maksimir, with a win securing their direct qualification for the 2024 European Championship. After a recent 2-0 victory against Latvia and a draw between Wales and Armenia, Croatia no longer needs to calculate their chances and can aim for three points to secure their spot in Germany.
As they prepare for the match, coach Zlatko Dalić urged his team to take the game seriously and not underestimate Armenia, despite their slim chances of qualifying. He emphasized the need for maximum seriousness and intelligence, reminding them not to disappoint their fans and to strive for qualification for a major competition.
Despite being considered a big favorite against Armenia, having previously won with Andrej Kramarić scoring the only goal in their previous encounter, Croatia cannot afford to let down their guard. Bookmakers have put the coefficient at 1.20 for a Croatia victory, 14 for an Armenia victory, and 6.00 for a draw. The match will be available on Sportklub 7.
