5:30 PM: Hello everyone and welcome to Khel Now’s LIVE COVERAGE of the UEFA Euro 2024 Group F match between Croatia vs Albania. The kick-off is just a few hours away! I am your host Aishwarya and will keep you company through what promises a fascinating night of football. Please wait for 30 seconds for the Live blog to load.

Croatia will lock horns against Albania in the upcoming fixture in the Euro 2024, a 3-0 defeat to Spain in the previous game means they are under pressure to avoid any sort of slip-up against Albania on Wednesday. This is technically not a must-win match for Croatia but still, they need to get three points from this match to release some pressure. A second loss for either team can end their hopes of progressing further in the tournament. Even in the last match, Croatia did create some chances but they were not able to convert those into goals.

Albania scored in the first minute of the match against defending champions but unfortunately, they didn’t get the result which they wanted as they lost 2-1 to Italy. They are a better team when they play pragmatically as they are very good in maintaining their defensive shape. They are a good counter-attacking team and will be a big challenge for Croatia to stop their attacks. They will have to give their all in the upcoming match to get something positive from this fixture.

Players to Watch

Marcelo Brozovic (Croatia)

He plays a major role in teams’ build-up play from deep, he is also a very good passer who does not shy away from taking risks. He knows how to hold on to the ball in tight situations, he does everything to make sure he does not get dispossessed of easily. He always looks to progress the ball as fast as he can, physically also he is strong and also good at winning ground and ariel duels.

Nedin Bajrami (Albania)

His ability to play dangerous passes or crosses into the area, to dribble creatively in the final third and to progress the ball effectively for his team stand out as strengths of his playing style. Bajrami is a creative and flexible attacking player who provides a real threat with the ball in wide areas.

His balance and agility combine to make him extremely difficult to defend against as he is capable of taking the ball outside or cutting back inside from either side of the pitch. He also presses high up the pitch with intensity and makes things difficult for defenders.
