As the Croatian national football team prepares to face Armenia on Tuesday at 8:45 p.m. in Maksimir, their chances of qualifying for the 2024 European Championship are looking promising. With a win against Armenia, Croatia will secure direct qualification and take their place in Germany.
Following a 2-0 victory over Latvia and a draw between Wales and Armenia, Croatia no longer needs to calculate their position. They can now focus on going for three points and securing their spot in a major competition.
Coach Zlatko Dalić has emphasized the importance of taking the game seriously and not underestimating Armenia, despite their slim chances of qualifying. He urged the team to show maximum seriousness and intelligence, reminding them not to disappoint their fans and to aim for 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 last 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 broadcast on Sportklub 7.
