The group league matches of the 17th UEFA European Championship 2024 are on. Group B, was known to be the group of death with defending champion Italy, three-time champions Spain, world-ranked 10th Croatia, and Albania fighting for the top two positions. With its fabulous wins against Croatia (3-0) and Italy (1-0), Spain sailed through the knockout round already. Which one will be the next one to qualify from Group B? 

Tonight, Italy and Croatia will take each other on. On the other hand, Spain will play Albania. While Spain defeated Italy, the defending champions are still in the second position on the group table. Meanwhile, Croatia is in the fourth position. In another match on June 25, Albania will take on Spain. If Albania loses, they will be out of the tournament. If both Albania and Croatia win against Spain and Italy respectively, there will be chances that one of these two teams may lead to the next round as the second team of Group B.  

Meanwhile, Italy can go to the next round even if they draw the match with Croatia. Luka Modrić’s Croatia will not only have to win their match against Italy but Albania will also have to lose to Spain. Only then will they qualify for the knockout round. 

The stats between Croatia and Italy can cheer up the fans of Luka’s team. These two footballing nations played each other nine times. Italy could manage to win just one match against Croatia. It was in 1942 and a friendly match between them. That’s all. They tied with each other five times.
