Croatia will be without midfield star Ivan Perisic for their crucial Euro 2020 last 16 tie with Spain on Monday night after he tested positive for Covid-19 this weekend.
Luis Enrique‘s side face off with the 2018 World Cup finalists in Copenhagen on Monday night after finishing second in Group E in behind Sweden with five points from three group games so far.
La Roja’s own preparations for the competition have been impacted by Covid-19 with skipper Sergio Busquets ruled out of their opening game against Sweden, after he returned a positive test within their training camp.
However, with Busquets now back available for Enrique, it is Croatia that now face a nervous few days of testing, as per reports from The Guardian.
Enrique is unlikely to make wholesale change to his starting XI, following a 5-0 win over Slovakia in Sevilla, and he could name an unchanged team at Parken Stadium next week.
