A big between two of the most exciting national sides in recent years. Belgium were the number 1 ranked team going into this World Cup tournament, while Croatia were runners-up in the last World Cup edition in 2018. A draw will be enough to see Croatia through, while Belgium need a win to be sure of progress regardless of the results in the other group game. You can bet on this game using the Betway app and enjoy high odds and a wide range of markets.
Croatia got an emphatic 4-1 win over Canada in their last game to make up for the disappointing 0-0 draw with Morocco in their opening game. The win took Croatia to the top of Group F, tied on 4 points with Morocco but with a better goal difference. As long as they avoid defeat here, Croatia will be assured of playing knockout football at this World Cup.
Coach Zlatko Dalić will be well aware that they are facing a tough opponent and even getting a draw will require a top performance. Belgium have won 3, drawn 1, and lost 1 against Croatia in their last 5 head-to-head meetings. If there is a team that can break Croatia’s 8 match unbeaten run (W6 D2) then it is the Belgians.
Belgium are under immense pressure to live up to their reputation as the FIFA number one ranked team of the tournament. They have been unimpressive so far, scraping a 1-0 win over a deserving Canada in their opening group match, before losing 2-0 to Morocco in their second game. That loss led to violent riots by Belgian fans in the nation’s capital Brussels and the city of Antwerp.
The Red Devils know that only qualification for the knockout stages can help calm things down among their fans. They have been accused of having an aging team that is no longer as sharp as it used to be, but coach Roberto Martínez stuck with most of his older players for the second game. For this crucial tie, the return of Belgium’s all time top scorer Romelu Lukaku to the starting lineup may just be what they need.
- COACH: Zlatko Dalić
- MISSING PLAYERS: None
- De Bruyne
