Russia vs Croatia Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Russia have been able to use the increasing support on the streets and within the stadiums to great advantage. Russia went with a backs-to-wall approach against Spain and the approach is unlikely to change for this game considering that Croatia are a technically strong team. However, Croatia have displayed plenty of directness and threat in the games so far. While Croatia may struggle to break down a packed defence, it is certainly not beyond the possibility. An appropriate option would be to back Croatia to qualify for the semi-finals.

Even though Russia could be criticised for showing excessive respect for Spain in the last 16, the game also showcased the attacking threat possessed by Russia, who had opportunities to score on the counter-attack. Croatia have been unable to keep a clean sheet in the last two games. An attractive option in my view is to back both teams to score.

Croatia to qualify – 4/7

Both teams to score – 11/10
