Argentina and Croatia will have a tricky collision in search of the full set of points
A big game awaits us on Thursday night at the “Nizhny Novgorod” stadium. Meanwhile, teams from Argentina and Croatia face a match in group D at the World Cup Russia 2018. The Croats lead in the group after winning their first tournament match, while Argentina is just a point. There is an important match for both teams on their way to the eighth finals in the race.
The tension is on the side of Argentina
Some days ago the “Gaucosos” started their way to the current World Cup against a debutant against Iceland, but failed to get to nothing more than a tie. A pretty unpleasant scar remains and a missed penalty kick by Leo Messi, which could bring the three points to the match. Argentina will have to do better in its worst match in the group. Jorge Sampaoli is expected to make a lot of changes in the starting lineup to offer a better football that Argentina will pursue the three points. In defense, however, “gauchoos” will also have to be alert. No missing from the composition is expected.

Croatia with its best start for 20 years
The 2-0 victory over Nigeria in the first game marked the strongest start of World Cup finals in 20 years. In the upcoming match, they will be pursuing at least the point at which to keep their chances of being ranked ahead to the very large eighth finals. Team coach Zlatko Dalih sent off central striker Nicolas Kalinic after having found problems with his back and could not help the team. Other missing ones are not expected.
Argentina vs. Argentina Croatia
In their history, the two teams have 4 matches with each other. Three of them are friendly matches where both teams are exchanged for success and one match ends in a draw. The only official clash dates from the 1998 World Cup in France when Argentina and Croatia are again in a group. Then the “Gaucosos” won 1-0. Now South Americans are faced with the task of pursuing mandatory three points if they do not want to question their leaving the group. However, Croatia has a lot of talent. Certainly “chess players” have a better middle line, but bigger names are shining in Argentina’s attack. Our opinion of this game is that you will get an interesting and goalless match. As a main prognosis, we will point out both teams to write at the meeting. As a second option, we will assume a victory for Argentina, because the situation in front of the team predisposes him to throw for the three points.
