Where to bet?

Ante Cacic is their coach and Luka Modric, Mateo Kavacic and Ivan Rakitic are key players that can score against most Euro 2016 nations. Cacic can also use proven goalscorers such as Nikola Kalinic and Mario Mandzukic up front, while Darijo Srna is an experienced footballer who can be used lining up at right-back. Croatia has been breeding a pool of young players and if Cacic gets the mix right then the new blend could be really intoxicating for other teams.

Since playing as an independent nation from 1991, after seceding from Yugoslavia, Croatia have really emerged as a force in international football. In other words, Croatia have reached 5 European final tournaments in 6 attempts. What else can help you assess the best Croatia Euro 2016 betting odds?

We use an aggregate to find the best Croatia Euro 2016 betting ods, so make sure you read further. Croatia have emerged as a valuable force in the international football world. The national team qualified in their debut FIFA World Cup and UEFA European Championship campaigns, finishing 3rd at EURO 96 in France where Suker Davor was the 6-goal top scorer.

Croatia missed out only twice – in 2010 and 2000 – yet they progressed beyond group stages at Euro 2008. EURO 2016 finals represent their fourth such performance in a row. Croatia were runners-up to Italy in Group H.

Croatia's only failure came in 2000, but in 1996 Blazevic and Suker helped the team reach the last 8 in their first finals appearance. In 2008, Croatia lost in the semi-finals against Turkey in a penalty shoot-out. Four years later came another disappointment when Bilic Slaven's side was in a tough group stage against Italy and Spain – the eventual finalists.

Use our Croatia EURO odds from a complete aggregate to increase your chances of winning.

Croatia contributed players to the team of Yugoslavia before 1991, and the team finish runners-up at the 1968 UEFA European Championship. As part of Yugoslavia, Croatia lost the inaugural match against the Soviet Union in 1960 (2-1, extra-time), and lost 2-0 to Italy in 1968.

Memorable European Championship matches

11 November 2011: Turkey vs Croatia 0-3, UEFA Euro 2012 playoffs – The Turkish team was stunned by a powerful Croatia that marked three goals in 50 minutes

21 November 2007: England vs Croatia 2-3, UEFA Euro 2008 qualifying stage – 90,000 on Wembley Stadium were silenced as Petric Mladen scored a goal and eliminated the hosts.

16 June 1996: Croatia 3-0 Denmark, UEFA Euro 1996 group stage – Suker scored an impressive goal.

The Question

Can Croatia assemble a great team for EURO 2016? Their team profile looks great, but the players who will be on the field in June need to generate a sum of their parts. Croatia have the potential to finish 2nd behind Spain in Group D and they can then face the Group E winners. We can see mouthwatering clashes if Croatia makes it though the group stage – and that's very possible since Rakitic and Modric are yet to fulfil their incredible potential on the international stage. Croatia have the talent and they only need to time it.
