Tonights first semi final of the European Championships at the Duna Arena in Budapest is between two waterpolo powerhouses, Spain and Croatia.

The Spaniards beat the mighty Serbia in the quarter finals just two nights ago in an epic replay of the 2018 final where we saw Serbia snatching the title away from Spain in a penalty shootout.

Spain, having already qualified for Tokyo are playing magnificent water polo under the coaching mentor David Martin but will be up against it, when they face the reformed Croatia.

This match is made for the Spanish genius Felipe Perrone - watch out for him on the highlight real tonight.

The Croatian team, under the guidance of Ivica Tucak, disposed of the mighty Greeks in the quarter finals and are in Budapest for big business and top of their list, is to qualify for the Olympic Games.

Josip Vrlić is the danger man, having scored at a tournament high of 58% and is ably assisted by two of the best left hander pairing in world water polo, Javier Garcia Gadea and Maro Jokovic who are magnificent athletes and have their targets set to the back of oppositions nets.

Tonights game is going to be an absolute cracker in Budapest.
