The Croatian national football team has the opportunity to secure direct qualification for the 2024 European Championship with a win against Armenia on Tuesday at 8:45 p.m. in Maksimir. After their 2-0 victory over Latvia and a draw between Wales and Armenia, Croatia no longer needs to calculate their chances of qualification and can focus on going for three points to secure their spot in Germany.
Coach Zlatko Dalić emphasized the importance of taking the game seriously and not underestimating Armenia, despite their slim chances of qualifying. He urged the team to maintain maximum seriousness and intelligence, reminding them not to disappoint their fans and to aim for qualification for a major competition.
Croatia is considered a big favorite against Armenia, having previously won 1-0 in September with Andrej Kramarić scoring the only goal in their encounter. Bookmakers have put the odds at 1.20 for a Croatian victory, 14 for an Armenian victory, and 6.00 for a draw. The match will be broadcast live on Sportklub 7.
