Croatia and Spain meet in the Nations League Final in Rotterdam.

Spain lost to France in the Nations League Final in 2021 and can win their first trophy since Euro 2012.

Croatia vs Spain team news

Croatia are not expected to make major changes, the trusty midfield trio of Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic once again providing the foundation in midfield.

Josko Gvardiol pulled out of the squad ahead of the Netherlands match with injury and Marko Livaja is also not involved after a confrontation with the fans at a training session.

For Spain, Joselu is unlikely to be rewarded for his winner against Italy with a start in the final, with Alvaro Morata now captain and he is expected to lead the line once again.

Navas should keep his place at right-back over Dani Carvajal, after making his first international appearance in three years, while Robin Le Normand will hope conceding a penalty on debut does not see him dropped for the final.

Croatia vs Spain prediction

Spain are favourites to lift the trophy, but this Croatia side have shown time and time again that they do not know when they are beaten.

They have come close to securing silverware in major tournaments in recent years, and this could be Croatia’s time to finally get over the line at the end of what could be a long night.
