Croatia vs Italy – UEFA Euro 2016 Qualifiers – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Croatia hosts Italy in a Group H fixture of the UEFA Euro 2016 Qualifiers. The match will be played behind closed doors as Croatia serves one-match crowd ban due to racist chants from the supporters during their match against Norway in March. The match will be played on 12th June, 2015 at 18:45 GMT.

Team News

Niko Kovac confirmed the absences of Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric through injury and Vedran Corluka (Lokomotiv Moscow) due to a suspension.

Italy will not be at full strength with Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli, Simone Zaza, Daniele de Rossi and Luca Antonelli injured. Marco Verratti has been ruled out as well, after the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder failed to recover from his calf problem in time. Gianlucci Buffon has picked up a knock on his left elbow but should be fit to start the match, or else Salvatore Sirigu will come into the starting eleven.

Croatia Possible Starting Lineup: Subasic, Srna, Corluka, Vida, Pranjic, Olic, Brozovic, Badelj, Perisic, Rakitic, Mandzukic.

Italy Possible Starting Lineup: Buffon, Ranocchia, Bonucci, Astori, Darmian, De Sciglio, Candreva, Marchisio, Bertolacci, Immobile, Pelle.

Contributor’s Pick

Italy have been on the rise since their group-stage exit in 2014 FIFA World Cup, winning five and drawing three matches after Antonio Conte took over. But the Azzuri have won only once out of the eight times they have faced Croatia. In spite of absence of Luka Modric, the Croats are confident of holding the Azzuri to a draw. The reverse fixture in the qualifiers was a 1-1 affair and it is likely this particular match will sport the same scoreline.
