Croatia national team take on Spain in the third match of the group stage of European Championship 2016. The match is taking place at Stade de Bordeaux on Tuesday, June 21st.
Croatia showed solid performance in their first match against Turkey, winning only 1-0 but leaving opponents no chance for a draw. Second match at the competition against Czech Republic started with two goals scored by Croatia during the first hour of the match. Such confident advantage played the trick with the team and they conceded two late goals, letting the win slip. With that draw Croatia lost a chance to clinch place in the knockout phase beforehand. Now the team has four points and should stay determined and focused until the final whistle after that lesson Czech Republic gave them.

Spain struggle to beat Peter Cech for 87 minutes while the clash against Turkey showed the real strength of the team as Furia Roja scored three goals and could’ve score much more.

Croatia and Spain played four head-to-heads in their history. One of these matches ended with a draw and three times Spain were the strongest side, including groups-stage clash at Euro-2012 that ended with 1-0 win of Furia Roja.
