Croatia is currently leading the race to qualify for the 2024 European Championship, and a win against Armenia on Tuesday at 8:45 p.m. in Maksimir would secure their direct qualification. With a 2-0 victory over Latvia and a draw between Wales and Armenia, Croatia no longer needs to calculate their chances of qualifying and can simply aim for three points to secure their spot in Germany.
Coach Zlatko Dalić has emphasized the importance of taking the match seriously despite Armenia’s slim chances of qualifying. He has urged the team not to underestimate their opponents, stressing the need for maximum seriousness and intelligence to avoid disappointing their fans and achieving qualification for a major competition.
Croatia is considered a big favorite against Armenia, having previously defeated them in September with Andrej Kramarić scoring the only goal in their previous 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 available on Sportklub 7.
