Denmark has been resilient throughout the tournament and has an able playmaker in Christian Eriksen. They’ve had one of the better conversion rates as most of the few shots they’ve taken so far have ended up being a goal. Denmark’s two goals scored are the least by any of the top 16 left in the tournament so far. On the other hand, this is Croatia’s best start, better than the 1998 World Cup, where they finished 3rd. They’re brimming with confidence and look poised to get past Denmark with ease. Both enter the Round of 16 unbeaten, and only one will be able to keep up with it. As per the odds, our prediction reads Croatia 2-1 Denmark.
