Where to watch Portugal vs Croatia live stream, TV, lineups and predictions for the international match

Portugal will face Croatia in a warm-up match ahead of Euro 2024. This match is crucial for both teams as they prepare for the tournament in Germany.

Although neither Portugal nor Croatia are among the top favorites, both have the potential to cause surprises at Euro 2024. Portugal is unbeaten against Croatia, winning the last meeting in 2020 3-2.

Although Cristiano Ronaldo could return for Portugal, the squad has top-class players who could at least reach the quarter-finals in Germany.

In Croatia, veterans such as Domagoj Vida, Luka Modrić, Ivan Perišić and Andrej Kramarić are nearing the end of their international careers. With a lack of young talent, Croatia is dependent on experienced players. However, talents such as Luka Sučić and Martin Baturina give reason for hope for the future.

Portugal vs Croatia Prediction

Predicting the outcome of friendlies can be difficult, but Portugal and Croatia are likely to take this game seriously with Euro 2024 looming. Both teams are in good form, having won four of their last five games.

However, Portugal's impressive record of ten consecutive home wins could give the team a slight advantage. It will be an intense and competitive match as both teams look to fine-tune their preparations for the upcoming tournament.

Forecast: Portugal – Croatia 2:1
