Croatia are the bookies' favourite to beat England in the Nations League

In a repeat of the World Cup 2018 semi-final, Croatia will host England in behind-closed-doors game. We look through some of the market's odds:

This game promises to be an eerie spectacle as Croatia will be serving a Uefa's one match behind-closed-doors punishment after a swastika was found on the pitch in a Euro 2016 qualifier.

For anyone, who watched last week's behind-closed-doors match between Lyon and Shakhtar Donetsk, they'll know it can be disconcerting for the players. Some argue it adds to the unpredictability of the match, and hence and interesting match to bet on.

England famously lost the semi-final against Croatia in extra-time. Looking at the stats Croatia were the stronger team after 120 minutes with twenty-two shots to England's seven. However, England has looked in control for a large part of the game, having opened the scoring after five minutes with a Kieren Trippier free-kick.
