Croatia v Albania: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

After suffering defeats in their opening matches of this summer's Euros, Croatia and Albania will both be looking to bounce back when they meet in Hamburg on Wednesday.

World Cup semi-finalists Croatia were resoundingly beaten 3-0 by Spain in their Group B opener, while, despite scoring the fastest goal in Euros history to take the lead against Italy, Albania eventually lost that match 2-1.

Those results mean neither side has any real room for error ahead of their clash at Volksparkstadion.

Croatia v Albania stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

Croatia are playing at their seventh European Championship finals and they have only twice before failed to make it beyond the group stage.

Saturday's defeat to Spain means Vatreni have now lost three of their last five competitive internationals, as many losses as they had suffered in 29 such matches before that.

This is Albania's second appearance at the European Championship finals and they have lost three of their four matches at this stage.

Nedim Bajrami's goal against Italy was the fastest in Euros history - coming after just 23 seconds - but Albania went on to lose that match 2-1.

Wednesday's clash in Hamburg will be the first ever meeting between Croatia and Albania in senior international football.
