our main tip:
Both Teams to Score

Portugal vs Croatia prediction

Portugal’s preparations for the Euros continue in earnest this weekend with a friendly against Croatia on Saturday. Coach Roberto Martinez is on a terrific run since taking charge of the squad, losing just once and winning 12 matches. He survived a scare against Finland before upping the ante and picking up a 4-2 win when the dust settled. With the games starting soon, he will be looking to calm things down and build some momentum for the tournament

Croatia on the other end are in high hopes coming into this tournament. The Croatians have traditionally punched above their weight in both regional and global tournaments reaching the 2018 World Cup Finals and more recently the UEFA Nations League Finals last year. Coach Zlatko Dalić has selected a good mix of youth and experience and they will definitely be a force to reckon with here

This will be an interesting friendly pitting teams with plenty of firepower at their disposal. We anticipate an end-to-end encounter here and we are backing both teams to find the back of the net as our opening Portugal vs Croatia prediction here
