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

Spain and Croatia have met 10 times in international football with four wins for Spain, three victories for Croatia and three of the games finishing in 90-minute draws.

The last two meetings between the teams ended all-square in normal time.

Spain won 5-3 in the round of 16 at Euro 2020, with Alvaro Morata and Mikel Oyarzabal scoring in extra-time, while La Roja beat Croatia on penalties in last summer's Nations League final, after a goalless 120 minutes.

Croatia reached the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup despite scoring only eight goals in seven matches, four of them in a group-stage win against Canada.

Barcelona midfielder Gavi was ruled out of the Euros due to a knee injury, but his club team-mate Pedri is fit again and should start after scoring twice against Northern Ireland.

Real Sociedad forward Mikel Oyarzabal is pushing for a place in the starting line-up after bagging four goals in this month's friendly victories over Andorra and Northern Ireland.
