Croatia and Slovenia have met one another a few times in the past with Croatia coming out on top in 6 of those occasions while Slovenia have just one win to their name and 3 of the other matches were drawn out of the previous 10 meetings between the two nations.
Croatia have a very strong midfield with the likes of Kovacic and Brozovic, that even with the absence of influential players like Modric who is out injured, they can dominate and keep the ball in midfield. They will try to use their press resistance to get out of difficult situations and reverse the attacks on the opponent. Slovenia will surely find it very difficult the contain a very energetic Croatian team and it may well come down to how resolute their defense is and for how long they can maintain a proper shape.
