Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Croatia vs Morocco


The Croatian national team did not have an easy life in the group - in the company of Belgium, Canada and Morocco, the team of Zlatko Dalic was the second. Only one victory was achieved at the group stage, Canada was defeated 4:1 in the second round. With the Belgians and Moroccans, the "checkers" painted two goalless draws, thus finishing on the second line in the group after Morocco.

In the 1/8 finals, Croatia was rivaled by Japan, in the confrontation with which it was difficult to win back in the second half and transferred the match first to extra time, then to the penalty shootout, where it turned out to be stronger. On penalties, the “checkers” also beat Brazil, again managing to answer the opponent with a goal, but this time in extra-times.

In the semi-finals with Argentina, the struggle, as such, did not work out - already in the first half, the Croats missed twice, failing to return to the game. The team conceded another goal from Albiceleste in the second half of the meeting.


The Moroccan national team was in a very strong group along with Croatia, Belgium and Canada, where it could hardly be considered a favorite. However, after a goalless draw with Croatia, the team of Valid Regraga believed in themselves and dealt sensationally with Belgium (2:0), practically guaranteeing themselves a way out of the group. The Atlas Lions did not stop there and beat Canada 2:1 in the last round, finishing first.

In the 1/8 finals, the Moroccan team held back the onslaught of Spain and survived until the penalty shootout, where the Spaniards did not leave a chance. With Portugal, the Moroccans did not bring things to extra-times, beating the "team of the elite" 1-0 thanks to a goal by Youssef En-Nesiri . However, it did not work out to create another sensation in the semi-finals - France realized their chances and played well in defense. At the same time, a 0-2 defeat allows Morocco to count on bronze.

Game Totals Prediction

The Moroccan national team gave battle to France in the semi-finals, but the class was not enough. At the same time, the "Atlas Lions" created a lot of problems for the current owner of the trophy, so it was not so hard for the "tricolor" at the tournament. With Croatia it should be much easier for the Moroccans, the "checkers" have an advantage in the class, but it is not so great as to record the Africans as outsiders of the meeting.

The Moroccan team is quite capable of setting up for the last match and leaving Qatar with bronze medals.

We believe that the third place will go to the Moroccans. Prediction - victory in the match of the national team of Morocco. Such a bet in Mostbet can be placed for 2.15.

Croatia and Morocco cannot be called productive, attacking teams, but at the same time, today's match is unlikely to be too dry. Having failed to reach the final, both Croatia and Morocco have already shed the burden of responsibility and in the fight for the third place, they certainly allow themselves to play in a more attacking manner. The exchange of goals in this match has every chance to take place.

Our second bet will be both to score. Such a bet in Mostbet bookmaker can be placed for 1.72.
