Despite missing a penalty during the match, Real Madrid midfield maestro Luka Modric rallied back and was able to dispatch during the decisive penalty shootout against Denmark. The Croatian skipper has been pivotal to his nation’s success to date and this could be a game in which he plays the key role once again in the heart of midfield. 

In this intriguing quarter-final match-up, Croatia are the odds-on 5/4 favourites with bet365 to prevail and secure their spot in the semi-finals. Although, hosts Russia have shown their grit and steely determination ad can be backed at 29/10 to rally to what would a massive result on their home patch.

Head to head

These two nations have met just three times before in their history, with Croatia claiming a single win and the other clashes ending in draws
