The Croatia Euro 2020 odds reflect a mixed set of results since an excellent effort at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where they finished as runners-up to France.
Two moderate showings in the Nations League gave cause for concern that a team featuring some ageing star names has seen its best days.
However, a perfect home record helped the Blazers to top their qualifying group for this tournament ahead of Wales, Slovakia and Hungary, with only one defeat suffered in eight fixtures overall.
Former Barcelona playmaker Ivan Rakitic announced his international retirement during that campaign, but Real Madrid ace Luka Modric and Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic remain from the big three who helped Croatia shine so brightly in Russia three years ago.
Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic is a familiar face currently in his prime and several other members of the squad play for powerful clubs, plus head coach Zlatko Dalic showed he can mastermind a win over England in the World Cup semi-finals.
