It will be the fourth meeting between the two teams, having previously produced a Croatian victory and two draws.
The current runner-up in the world lost (1-0) to England in the first match and not winning today could complicate things for them to enter the next phase.
It cannot be said that the Czech Republic surprised by beating Scotland (0-2), but it did with the image shown, especially in the figure of Patrik Schick. A draw would practically guarantee a pass to the next round.

England comes from beating Croatia (1-0) in a duel that was predicted to be the key to first place. The objective is that and, on paper, part as a favorite to achieve it.
Scotland suffered a defeat (0-2) against the Czech Republic that forces them to score points if they want to aspire to be in the next round, so today they face a match ball in this particular Calcutta Cup.
