Preview:

Portugal and Croatia lock horns on Saturday, June 8th, 2024, in a much-anticipated international friendly ahead of the European Championship. This fixture serves as a crucial warm-up match for both sides as they fine-tune their strategies for the Euros.

Portugal on a Roll

Portugal heads into the clash in high spirits. They are unbeaten in their last eleven home matches and boast a strong recent record against Croatia. In their previous outing, they secured a convincing 4-2 victory over Finland despite resting star player Cristiano Ronaldo. Manager Roberto Martinez has instilled a sense of balance in the team, getting the best out of their talented squad.

Ronaldo’s Return Expected

The main attraction for Portugal fans will be the anticipated return of Cristiano Ronaldo. The veteran forward was rested in the Finland match but is expected to lead the line against Croatia. With Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, and Diogo Dalot also likely returning to the starting eleven, Portugal presents a formidable attacking force.

Croatia Seeking to Break the Mold

Croatia, on the other hand, is in a period of transition. While they possess quality players like Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic, they haven’t quite hit the heights of their 2018 World Cup run. This match offers them a chance to test themselves against a strong opponent and prove their mettle.
