Croatia faces Belgium in a game from Group F of the World Cup. Stay with us and our free football predictions for today. Let’s get to work!
Croatia faces the Belgians knowing that they could go home if they suffer a defeat here. The 2018 finalists have just one point advantage and for the Red Devils this is a chance to book their place in the knockout phase. It’s going to be a really important game.
Croatia started their World Cup campaign with a draw, but in the previous round they celebrated a terrific 4-1 win against Canada. They actually conceded an early goal, but since then they dominated the game. Kramaric and Livaja scored in the first half while Kramaric again and Majer scored after the break. It was a great performance by Zlatko Dalic’ boys.
Right now Dalic doesn’t have many reasons to make changes in his line-up. Still he can use players like Pasalic, Orsic or Petkovic from the bench.
Belgium are in a “must-win” situation here as they are one point behind Croatia and Morocco. Roberto Martinez’ team must regroup after suffering a surprising defeat against Morocco in the previous round.
It’s only normal to see Martinez making changes in Belgium’s line-up now. Dries Mertens could replace Eden Hazard in attack while Yoeri Tielemans is always a great option for the midfield. Leandro Trossard is another player who can boost Belgium’s performance in attack.
Romelu Lukaku could start for Belgium against Croatia. Inter Milan’s star recorded his first minutes at the World Cup in the previous game. Now his experience could be valuable for the Red Devils in such a crucial moment for the team.
