Croatia looked to defend from the moment the game began.

Spain's attacking structure resembles a 3-3-4 or 3-2-5, so to defend against this, #CRO would have their wide players Vlasic and Rebic track Gaya and Torres. Image
While the Croatian wide players defend the Spanish wide players, Kovacic, Modric and Brozovic were free to remain central and press Spain's midfield passing options.

As the game went on, Spain was able to move this defensive unit out of position and create space to play in.
