11:00 PM: Hello everyone and welcome to Khel Now’s LIVE COVERAGE of the UEFA Euro 2024 Group B match between Croatia vs Italy. The kick-off is just a few hours away! I am your host Waseem 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 face off against defending champions Italy in their last group-stage match of the Euro 2024. Croatia have not been at their best in their opening two games of the tournament as they lost to Spain and drew with Albania.

This match is essentially more like a play-off to determine whether Croatia or Italy finish as runner-up to Spain who are guaranteed top spot in the Group of Death, Group B. If the Checkered Ones win this fixture they will get the spot and will advance to the knockout stage.

Like Croatia, Italy have not been at their best in the opening two games. But unlike Croatia, the Azzuri have at least managed to get a win on the board as they recovered well from conceding an early goal to Albania to win 2-1. In their second match, unfortunately, they lost to La Roja due to an own goal.

The defending champions will look to get all three points, this will be a close contest for sure and fans surely will be excited about this fixture.

Players to Watch

Luka Modric (Croatia)

Luka Modric has always shown a great coordination capacity that has allowed him to successfully solve many complex on-pitch situations throughout his career. He is always prepared to give a solution to his teammates. He has great vision and passing ability which makes him special.

Due to his low centre of gravity, Modric is very good in 1v1 situations and easily beats his opponents. He is also very good at taking setpieces and will be a crucial player against Italy for sure in their final Euro 2024 Group B game.

Federico Chiesa (Italy)

Federico Chiesa is a player who is capable of playing both on the left and right. He is a right-footed player but can strike the ball with both feet. He likes to dribble a lot and most of the time beats his opponents and creates dangerous chances.

Chiesa is also very good at linkup play and likes to link with the striker. With his pace, he is able to beat the defenders to enter the opposition box. Overall he will be one of the biggest attacking threats to Croatia.
