Argentina v Croatia: Preview

Following a disappointing opening game for Argentina, the South American’s now face Croatia in what could be the deciding game of their World Cup 2018 campaign.

Croatia, who won their opening game against Nigeria, currently sit at the top of Group D, and Argentina really need to secure a win if they want to be in with a chance of progressing to the next round of the competition.

You’ll find that bookmakers offer Argentina as the favourites, but Jorge Sampaoli can’t risk losing against Croatia, and Argentina will need to give it their all to win.

We didn’t see Argentina at their best against Iceland, and as one of the top contenders in the competition, we know they can do much better than their performance in the opening game.

Jorge Sampaoli is well aware of how crucial this game is, and no doubt will be making some key changes to the starting line up for the Croatia game.

Sampaoli really needs to focus on both the Argentinian defence, while also creating plenty of opportunities for is players to score during Argentina v Croatia at World Cup 2018.

Messi, who hasn’t scored from 21 successive shots in World Cup finals, scored in both of his two previous appearances against Croatia, and will be hoping he can put at least one goal in the back of the net on Thursday night.

Croatia, on the other hand, had a spectacular opening game, which saw Zlatko Dalić’s men walk away with a 2-0 victory over Nigeria in their first match of World Cup 2018 in Russia.

Luka Modric was in top form, securing a penalty against Nigeria, and while Argentina will be a very tough team to beat, their first back-to-back win in World Cup games for a decade, may be within Croatia’s reach.

Neither team has any major injury concerns ahead of the Argentina game, however Dalić has sent Nikola Kalinic home after he refused to come on as a sub in Croatia’s opening game.

Argentina v Croatia is set to be one of the most exciting games of the week, and with both teams having so much to play for, it should be a fantastic game to watch.

Bookmakers favour Argentina, but Croatia could easily pull off a win if they're on form!
