 ARGENTINA vs CROATIA

KICK OFF: Tuesday 26th June 2018 | 19:00 CET

GROUP D ROUND 2 | NIZHNY NOVGOROD STADIUM

 

Expect Argentina to bounce back from a dismal display to shock Croatia

Argentina must break their over-reliance on Lionel Messi if they are to win against Croatia. Messi had 11 shots in total against Iceland and missed a penalty. The Albiceleste now have 90 minutes to decide their fate in this tournament. Win and they live another day, lose, and they will be hanging on by a thread

Croatia sits at the top of Group D after a 2-0 win over Nigeria. They are better defensively than Argentina, and if they can keep another clean sheet, they’ll be confident of topping the group.

Key Opta Stats

  • Croatia has lost all 4 of their World Cup meetings with South American sides.
  • Croatia scored in all their last five World Cup games.
  • Head to head: P4, Argentina W2, Croatia W1, 1D
