Croatia – Belgium Free Betting Tips Free Betting Tips
With a nucleus of experienced footballers, but past their prime, the reigning vice-champion started the World Cup with a 0-0 draw against Morocco, but left no room for interpretation in the second game.
Although they started with a handicap on the scoreboard after only 2 minutes in the match against Canada, Dalic’s team immediately took the initiative and even turned the score before half-time through Livaja and Kramaric.
Hostilities were led by the Europeans in the second half where the Hoffenheim striker managed to score his first double at a Final Tournament and Majer closed the score at 4-1 for Croatia.
Without a goal scored and a win after the first match, Croatia are in the lead after the second round and are in pole-position to qualify for the last 16.
“The Red Devils” didn’t leave a great impression after the game against Canada, won 1-0 by Batshuayi’s goal, and Roberto Martinez’s team also failed to pass the test against Morocco.
In an extremely hostile atmosphere, Belgium resorted to the same typical possession game, with lots of commitment from Kevin De Bruyne, but the attacking play didn’t connect at all in the Belgian section.
As we noticed in the match against Canada, the 3-4-3 system doesn’t favour Martinez’s team in duels with teams that build a lot in the flank, and the duel with Morocco showed this, conceding 2 goals in the last 15 minutes.
It was the first defeat of the World Cup for Belgium who fell out of the qualification places, with 3 points after 2 games, one less than Croatia and Morocco.
