Group B of Euro 2024 opened with an unexpected result. And it’s not that there was a lack of arguments from both sides, it’s that the score could have been too long for what was really seen on the field.

Spain beat Croatia 3-0 at the start of group B, in a duel that widely rewarded whoever was most effective in front of the opponent’s goal, and punished the Croatians’ complete lack of aim.


​The duel started with the teams threatening, a lot of work from the Spanish defense repelling balls and trying to disconnect Modric and, then, the first punishment: at 29 minutes Morata appeared in a counterattack that he resolved without difficulty, alone with the goalkeeper .

And the immediate response was from Kovacic, who shook Unai Simón, but, before they tried again, the Iberian team again punished one of the best on the field, Fabián Ruiz, at 32 minutes in a game that began the boy Yamal hit an impeccable shot, close to the post, for 2-0. Great goal.


And again Croatia responded with a great chance from Brozovic that the goalkeeper rejected, and then Majer, Le Normand, Kramaric and Kovacic tried, the clearest being the first. But since everyone failed, Carvajal appeared with a great cross and sealed the score 3-0.

And then, in the second half, there were all Croatia’s intentions to at least reduce the advantage but without sufficient aim, while Yamal and Rodri did their thing with the space behind the midfielders and defenders, although about half an hour from the end they finished resigning the attack and taking refuge so as not to put the victory at risk.

Modric and Kovacic left very early and not even in a penalty that Petkovic missed but the Croatians later scored on the rebound was there a discount, since the VAR discovered the invasion of the area and annulled everything.

They can make Spain the favorite of group B once and for all, since it is the leader, with a good level of play and nice goals, of its zone in Euro 2024.
