MOTD Live: UEFA Euro 2024 – Croatia v Italy (BBC One, 24 June 2024)

Match of the Day

On Monday, 24 June 2024, BBC One presents coverage of the UEFA Euro 2024 Group B match between Croatia and Italy, held at the Leipzig Arena. With Croatia aiming to maintain their recent strong performance in major tournaments and Italy seeking to replicate their 2021 victory, the match promises an engaging contest.

Croatia, led by captain Luka Modric, alongside Manchester City players Josko Gvardiol and Mateo Kovacic, has consistently advanced beyond the group stages in recent tournaments. They reached the World Cup final in 2018 and the semi-finals in 2022, but their Euros journey has not extended past the quarter-finals. Italy, on the other hand, has a substantially different lineup from their Euro 2020 triumph, and their performance in major tournaments can be unpredictable. Without defensive mainstays Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci, Italy will need to adapt, but they often thrive when faced with adversity.
