Russia vs Croatia Match Preview 

Both Russia and Croatia achieved this phase after punishments. Sbornaya held it out against the 2010 champions Spain whose clean passing got them thumped out of the opposition. Stanislav Cherchesov realized that his group simply needs to sit tight for a solitary opportunity to get the chance to see off the non-propelled Spanish outfit. 

La Furia Roja appeared to be in charge at an early stage when Sergei Ignasevich was unfortunate to send the ball into his own net after a set-piece from the right-flank. 

By the by, they unmistakably paid the cost for settling up for the sterile strength all through the whole amusement, even after Russia proceeded onward level terms when Artem Dzyuba effectively changed over the extra shot after Gerard Pique's indiscreet handball five minutes previously the break. 

Smolov, Ignasevich, Golovin and Cheryshev committed no error from the spot to send the hosts into the last eight, despite seemingly insurmountable opposition. They will in no way, shape or form have a mission inconceivable on Saturday despite the fact that Croatia head into the amusement as slight top picks. 

Croatia traveled their way towards garnish the testing Group D, yet they were on the precarious edge of an early last 16 round exit as Denmark constrained their tie into punishment shootout. 

Monaco's guardian Danijel Subasic was legend there, denying upwards of three of Danish shots from the spot to send his national side into a winnable quarterfinal tie against the Russians.

Preceding this conflict, groups shared riches playing goalless draws on the two events in EURO 2008 qualifiers. 

Russia vs Croatia Predictions 

Croatia have been considerably more amazing amid the gathering stage. The whole country is wanting to see their brilliant beat the achievement Suker, Boban and friends accomplished in 1998, driving the Blazers to the bronze decoration in France. The present harvest of players unquestionably have prospects of going the distance to the last this time out. 

Zlatko Dalic's men have everything to make the most of it with any semblance of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic taking care of business and with the least demanding course to the last conceivable. We question they will neglect to exploit it as support Croatia to qualify is the most secure of the best here, set at the 1.53 chances. 

More courageous tipsters can take the Croats to win in the normal a hour and a half of play at the chances of 2.25. Since Croatia have been genuinely hard to separate so far in the competition, we will agree to the 2-0 last score at the chances of 10.00.
