Croatia must shake off a 6-0 drubbing by Spain in September as they host La Roja in a must-win UEFA Nations League game on Thursday.

The last time that Spain and Croatia squared off, “La Roja” dealt the high-flying Croats a dose of reality with a thorough 6-0 destruction, which — as Sky Sports noted — was the worst defeat in Croatia’s history for the country’s national side. Now, on their home territory, Croatia gets a chance to avenge that humiliation in a Nations League Group A4 match that will live stream from Zagreb.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the Croatia vs. Spain UEFA Nations League match, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:35 p.m. Central European Time at the 35,100-seat Stadion Maksimir in Zagreb, Croatia, on Thursday, November 15.

Spain boss Luis Enrique, however, has warned his team against overconfidence heading into the match that, with a victory, would all but seal advancement in the UEFA Nations League. Spain currently sits atop the three-nation group, per Sky Sports, having claimed six points from three matches. Their only defeat came in a 3-2 loss to England, one that was Spain’s first loss in their home country since 2003.

“I think this game is totally different to the one we played in [Spain],” Enrique said on Wednesday, quoted by Goal.com. “It’s key for both, and decisive, because they still have chances to go through… It’s the first game that will be everything or nothing. If we win, we qualify, and if not, there will be chances for the others. It’s a vital game for us.”
