Fight for 1st place

What a match it was Czech Republic vs. Croatia. After Croatia lead 2-0, Czech suceed to lower lead in 76 minute and then in 85 minute match was deleyed because of croatia fans and then in last minute of match Czech equalize. This were not easy moments for Croatia from 2-0 to 2-2 in last 15 minutes of match against not so strong team like Czech Republic. Can they rise on time to be at best against Spain this is question.

Spain was not convincing against Czech Republic and win only 1-0 but they beat Turkey in great way 3-0 in last math and this bring some additional power to team no doubt.

Spain is full of big names and like always they are amont main favourites for title. But they just do not look ok like a team. Looks like this Spanish team has huge internal tensions. On goal they have David de Gea. In defence mail players are Piqué, Ramos, Alba and Juanfran. In midfield they have Busquets, Fàbregas, Iniesta. On wings they have Koko and Pedro and in attack they have a problem. They do not have no player like Raul was. I think they will most play with best striker Álvaro Morata that is really solid striker but with 23 not experienced a lot. Two things that this Spanish team need to solve is how Barca and Real players will play together like a team and second how they will score goals as possesion 60, 70% means nothing if you can not score.

Croatia is full of stars and really strong in attacking options. Juventus Mandzukic and Fiorentina Kalinic are top choices for central striker. On attacking midfield and winger they have solid options with Inter Milan Perisic and talanted Pjaca. Midfield is strongest part of Croatian team no doubt. Real Madrid Modric and Kovacic, Barcelona Rakitic and Inter Milan Brozovic. Weakest point of Croatian team is defence where there are Lok. Moscow Corluka, Jedvaj from Leverkusen, Dynamo Kiev Vida and Sassuolo Vrsaljko. On goal they have solid Subasic from Monaco but in this team goalkeepers position also brings no additional value to team.

As everyone already know now weak point in Croatia team is defence and they can not afford like Czech Republic to play defence all time against Spain as this way they lose for sure so they will also try some attacks and we could see really interesting match this time. Croatia is also little bit under pressure because of what their fans did in last match and this kind of thing do not affect teams really well. I think SPain will win this one and confirmed 1st place in group.
