How Croatia could line up against Scotland

Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic has already confirmed that changes will be made for their final Group D game of Euro 2020 against Scotland on Tuesday.

Rangers left-back Borna Barisic appeared to have shaken off a troublesome calf issue after returning to training, but Dalic has ruled him out once again, meaning that Josko Gvardiol's place is safe for the time being.

Dejan Lovren's flailing elbow connected with Patrik Schick's nose on matchday two - an incident which led to the Czech Republic being awarded a penalty - but the Zenit St Petersburg man should keep his place alongside Domagoj Vida.

Marcelo Brozovic dropped down to the bench for the draw with the Czechs, but Dalic has confirmed that the Inter Milan lynchpin will return to the first XI here, most likely alongside Mateo Kovacic.

Luka Modric could therefore be deployed in a more advanced role at Hampden Park, and Dalic has a number of decisions to make in the final third of the field.

Ivan Perisic is a certainty to start after netting the equaliser against the Czech Republic - his eighth goal at a major tournament - and one more here would see him go level with national team hero Davor Suker on nine strikes at the Euros or World Cup.

Ante Rebic is expected to drop down to the bench as Bruno Petkovic is handed an opportunity to lead the line, while Nikola Vlasic - hailed as one of his country's "best players" when fully fit by Dalic - may demote Josip Brekalo back to the sidelines.

Croatia possible starting lineup: Livakovic; Vrsaljko, Vida, Lovren, Gvardiol; Brozovic, Kovacic; Vlasic, Modric, Perisic; Petkovic
