The game is live on ITV Please use this thread for speculation, pre and post match chat on the Croatia v Denmark game.

I fancy a Croatia win as they have been really good so far, but this Denmark team are no mugs. I could see a low score draw here and this battled out in extra-time.

Of all the last 16 matches this is the one I'm most confident about picking a winner for - Croatia have been immense this tournament & Denmark have done just enough to keep their heads above the water. I honestly have no idea why they didn't try & beat France in the last group game as they were ensured of progressing due to Australia losing and it wouldn't have mattered one jot if they'd lost against France anyway.

That is some confidence! Personally while Croatia have been impressive, they have a habit of bombing out in the knockout rounds whilst the Danes are unbeaten since 2016. I still think Croatia will win, but not the whitewash people are expecting. They are heavy favourites (would not back them at the price they are at) and I think Denmark are a little bit overpriced.

Yeah between this match & Brazil/Mexico I suppose. Croatia do have a poor recent knockout streak but they're often overlooked as serious contenders despite having lots of quality!

Croatia haven't been amazing here, I think Russia have a chance of winning against either of these teams.

I really want Denmark to win this one, they have played better than Croatia I think in the match and I think they have had more chances, the problem is they can't really seem to capitalise on them and score.

Has the law about the goalkeeper not coming off his line been abolished? There was no need for VAR to see that Schmeichel was way off his line there.

It would have been a shame though if it would have went in considering Denmark have outplayed Croatia throughout most of the match!

Having said that, I would say Croatia, who have more goalscorers than Denmark, would have an advantage against Denmark in penalties so I am expecting them to win anyway.
