After winning Group D with three wins from three matches, Croatia meet Group C runners-up Denmark in the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup.

footballexpert.com verdict: Croatia were excellent in Group D, with their experienced La Liga and Serie A-based stars shining in wins against Nigeria and Argentina before they sealed top spot with a win against Iceland. Denmark, by contrast, opened with a narrow win against Peru before draws against Australia and France – the latter a match in which Age Hareide’s team had just one shot on target. Croatia have more momentum, better form and arguably better players too and should be winning with no problem.
