This weekend pits England vs Belgium in a Group H rematch for third place, while favorites France take on spunky Croatia for the title. France opened as 1/2 favorites while Croatia were 9/5 underdogs.
Who ya got?
Croatia has played the equivalent of an entire extra game in the knock out rounds due to all three of their matches so far having gone to extra time. They will be playing on one fewer day of rest than France will be, and the French side is one of the few in the world with the quality and depth in midfield to match Croatia. I see a largely cagey match that ultimately finishes with the meaty French forehead of Olivier Giroud lifting the trophy.
