Croatia U19 take on France U19 in the second round match of European Championship on Friday, July 15th.
Croatia had a poor opening match of the tournament that ended with deserved 1-3 loss to coevals from the Netherlands. Even with one man up in the second half they couldn’t break resistance of the opponents. The match proved that Croatia are inconsistent at all level and spectacular performances alternate with poor ones.
French team showed nice performance in the first match against England but still suffered 1-2 defeat after conceding two early goals from the Three Lions. France showed all their attacking skills and organized numerous chances to take three points but couldn’t get even a draw. Just like their opponents in upcoming match, France have no right for another loss of points.
Considering first matches of the opponents at the tournament, neither of teams appear to be an underdog. Both team showed nice attacking football but failed to get the result. The loser of the game will lose all the chances to qualify for the next round and we can expect the teams to strive for three points only as a draw leaves small chances for both sides. This is why we can expect the teams to battle until the last minutes and please supporters with scored goals.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals.
