Denmark and Croatia face off in the UEFA Nations League 2022-23 at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen on Saturday, June 11. The match will kick off at 12:15 AM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Denmark will field a playing XI without forward Kasper Dolberg, who is doubtful due to a shoulder injury he sustained in the game against France. Kasper Hjulmand is likely to reshuffle his squad a bit and could have Christian Eriksen start from the bench, with the Brentford man having started the first two games.
For Croatia, Josko Gvardiol underwent a thigh surgery and will be unavailable until further notice. Mario Pasalic is expected to start in place of the struggling Lovro Majer.

Denmark vs Croatia recent form
With two wins in two, Denmark couldn’t have asked for a better start to their UEFA Nations League 2022-23 campaign. The Group 1 leaders have been clinical at home in recent times, winning each of their last five fixtures across all competitions by an aggregate score of 14-1. The Danes are also on a three-match winning streak.
Croatia, on the other hand, avoided a second defeat in a row as they held reigning champions France to a 1-1 draw. With just two wins in their last 12 Nations League games since the competition began in 2018, the Checkered Ones will need to be at their utmost best to get anything out of Saturday’s tie.
