Croatia v Denmark live stream and match preview

Looking for a Croatia v Denmark live stream? You're in the right place – FourFourTwo has all the info you need. 

Denmark can secure top spot in Group A1 and a place in next year’s Nations League finals by beating Croatia on Thursday night in Zagreb.

However, the hosts come into the game two points behind them with two games to go, and know that a victory would put them in the driving seat ahead of the final round of fixtures. 

The 2018 World Cup runners-up come into the clash in confident mood, too, having beaten the Danes 1-0 in Copenhagen in June.

They followed that up with an impressive 1-0 win away to France, where a Luka Modric penalty made the difference in a repeat of the final from Russia 2018.

With the World Cup 2022 (opens in new tab) just around the corner, both sides will be hoping to find form.

Denmark, who went on a superb run to the semi-finals at Euro 2020 last year, will see that previous defeat as just a blip.

It was their only slip-up in a run that has otherwise seen them pick up four wins in five matches. 

Victory in Zagreb would settle any nerves about a late drop down the rankings, as Denmark are up against France in their final fixture three days later, while Croatia face Austria. 

Modric is expected to star in midfield once again for the red-and-white chequered home side, while coach Zlatko Dalic has revealed that Tottenham’s Ivan Perisic “will play where he plays best, on the left”.

“I won’t do anything new,” he added, looking towards consistency ahead of picking his Croatia World Cup 2022 squad (opens in new tab)

Kasper Hjulmand insisted that “we have prepared for Modric”, and the defensive options in the Denmark squad (opens in new tab) include the likes of Simon Kjaer, Andreas Christensen and Joachim Andersen.

Manchester United’s Christian Eriksen could well be up against Modric in a battle of the playmakers.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Nations League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
