September 7, 2020 – In the Euro 2021 qualifier tonight, the Croatia U-21 Squad and the Czech Republic drew 0:0. 

The Croatia U-21 national team drew against the Czech Republic in the 6th round of qualifications for the European Championship, which will be played next year in Slovenia and Hungary.

With a victory, Croatia would catch up with the Czech Republic and Greece and finish with a chance to qualify for the Euro. However, with this draw, they remained five points behind the first-placed Czech Republic and three points behind second-placed Greece.

The match saw plenty of fouls, and the best player was Borna Sosa, who dominated the right side of the Czech defense throughout the match.

In the first 20 minutes of the match, there were no opportunities on either side. Croatia had the first opportunity in the 35th minute when Sosa served Spikic whose shot was saved by the Czech goalkeeper. In the 42nd minute, the best chance of the match was missed by the Czech side, as Drchal’s shot was stopped by Semper.

The second half continued in a similar rhythm as the first until the 55th minute when Musa missed a stellar opportunity for Croatia. Drchal had a chance to endanger Semper’s goal in the 67th minute, but unlucky in the end.

In the qualifying group, the Czech Republic is in first place with 15 points, in second is Greece with 13, while Croatia is in third place with 10 points after six games played.

The winners of nine groups and the five best second-placed teams will qualify directly for the Euro.

Croatia is now facing a difficult road to Euro U-21 because it must win all matches until the end of qualifying if it wants to stay in the game to advance.
