Croatia Expecting a Difficult Battle Against Italy

Playing at home doesn’t seem to give much insurance for Croatia ahead of their match against Italy as the Balkan side won’t be receiving maximum support from their fans knowing that that tie will be played on closed door.

That situation brought disappointment for Croatia players, including Darijo Srna, who believes that without an extra push from their fans, the tie will be difficult indeed.

Although they were able to held Azzurri 1-1 in San Siro, Milan, Srna urged his teammates not to underestimate their opponent as Antonio Conte’s men remain a tough team with experienced players.

Meanwhile, head coach, Nico Kovac also believes that his side will face a tough encounter against Italy, that’s why the tactician is hoping that his players can put on an excellent display.
