Croatia v England Betting Tips & Predictions | World Cup Match Previews.
11th July 2018 – 19:00, Stadion Luzhniki, Moscow.
Match Preview & Team News
Many feel that both Croatia and England are yet to meet the best sides in Russia despite making it to the semi-finals, but both have shown off in very narrow clashes recently and promise a great push for the Finals at Stadion Luzhniki. Zlatko Dalic’s men, primarily led by Real Madrid’s Luka Modric, have been the better side in clashes against Denmark and Russia after convincingly topping the Group D ahead of Argentina, Nigeria, and Iceland.
In no way can you describe the Blazers an easy task for Gareth Southgate, as you could not do with any side reaching the semi-finals – quick on counter-attacks with players such as Modric, Rakitic, or Mandzukic easily making all the difference in just a flash.
England, on the other hand, have wings and they don’t want them clipped early. They’ve beaten Sweden 2-0 in the Quarter-finals after flying past Colombia on penalties, where Jordan Pickford ended a decades-long curse for the Three Lions. They have been regularly conceding goals and kept only one clean sheet along the way, which will be more worrying ahead of the Semi-finals as well – where just one could set it off on the wrong foot.
The sides have last met in World Cup Qualifiers in 2008/09 and England have bagged two convincing wins over the rivals (1-4 on the road and 5-1 in front of the home crowd) but they’ll remember the two losses in EURO Qualifiers, as Croatians struck a famous 2-3 win at Wembley back in 2007 and shown what a shock they can make.
