Argentina vs Croatia Prediction & Tips
The debut in Russia 2018 was not exactly what all ofArgentina had dreamed of, indeed. The draw against Iceland was not even a hypothesis contemplated, because the first was perhaps (on paper) the most comfortable game of the group. The one against Croatia, however, puts Messi and his companions already backs to the wall: the Albiceleste can is only has to win against Perisic and his companions, otherwise it risks the historical thud. Only the Croatian victory against Nigeria in the first game of the group puts the team of Dalic in a position of great advantage, because a draw would be a great result before playing the qualification in the last challenge against Iceland.
Despite an offensive department of absolute quality and variety, against Iceland Messi and team-mates once again demonstrated their chronic offensive problems.
Excluding Messi’s wrong penalty, only one goal scored by Aguero and few scoring opportunities in a race in which the Icelanders erected an almost impassable wall.
And the match against Croatia will be more or less similar, because Perisic and his teammates will most likely play a waiting game and then start again on the break.
The 2-0 with which the Croats have got rid of Nigeria allows them to already make some calculations: a draw against Argentina would be worth gold …
Even Croatia from the offensive point of view has great quality, just think of Mandzukic and Perisic, but in the implementation phase is not brilliant.
Argentina must shake and react after the incredible gap against Iceland, but will face perhaps the worst opponent he could find right now: Croacia is a tough team but also an expert, which will try to give very little to the opponent and then hit it on the go.
