Denmark can book a spot in the 2022-23 UEFA Nations League finals when they face Croatia in League A Group 1 at the Maksimir Stadium on Thursday. Kasper Hjulmand’s team presently leads the rankings with nine points, but the Chequered Ones are only one spot and two points behind the table-toppers.
Croatia heaped on the agony for a dismal Bleus team with a 1-0 win in their most recent Nations League meeting, seeking vengeance four years after being relegated to second place at the 2018 World Cup.
Denmark’s strategy on Thursday is straightforward: win, and their place in the Nations League finals is certain. Despite being up against the current World Cup champions and runners-up from 2018, Kasper Hjulmand’s tenacious squad has conducted themselves with professionalism and grace.
Denmark finished a solid June month with a 2-0 victory over Austria during their most recent clash, as Jonas Wind and Andreas Skov Olsen scored inside the first 45 minutes.
The Euro 2020 semi-finalists are certain that they will not be relegated to Group B no matter what happens this month, as they have won both of their road games in the 2022-23 Nations League so far.
Croatia vs Denmark Prediction, Lineups
These two teams had a tough match in June, and another tight encounter seems to be in the cards when they meet this week. Denmark travels to Croatia on Thursday evening to face the top two teams in Group One of League A of the UEFA Nations League.
The visitors are two points ahead of the hosts, but Croatia triumphed 1-0 in Copenhagen in June, and another win for Zlatko Dalic’s men would send them to the top of the group.

Croatia comes into this game off a 1-0 win against France, and the world champions’ performance in this group has been a significant surprise, with Les Bleus picking up just two points from a possible 12.
Preview of Croatia vs. Denmark
Croatia have been far from prolific in what has been a tight group, with the 2018 world cup runners-up scoring only three times in four games. Denmark has scored two goals in three of their four games, but drew a blank against Croatia, and another close encounter is possible.
With first place in the group possible, both clubs will be eager to keep things close, and there should be plenty of interest in betting on a game with less than three goals.
