Argentina meets Croatia on Thursday, June 21 for a World Cup 2018 football match in Nizhny Novgorod with the first place spot in Group D up for snatch ahead of Iceland and Nigeria. Croatia is entering this game fresh from a 2-0 victory over Nigeria while Argentina couldn’t find its scoring machinery in a 1-1 draw with Iceland.
After making their World Cup debut and their best start to the tournament in two decades thanks to their 2-0 win against the Nigeria, Croatia are in chillax mood ahead of their football match with the Group D favorite — Argentina national football team. Any kind of outcome against the La Albiceleste will allow the Croatian squad to take a huge pace towards the Round of 16 stage.
Argentina, on the other side of the ball, are in an completely different state. The unanticipated draw match with World Cup debutant Iceland has left the La Albiceleste with much to do ahead of what appears to be their toughest test in the group stage. This is a must-win contest and this game is quite pivotal should they want to avoid a nerve-racking final match. Yet if there is one and only thing that the Argentina proved on their uphill battle to Russia it is that the club can easily adopt the situation when under pressure.
Expect the Croatians to keep with a similar lineup as to their opener, though the team may assign a more defensive-oriented lineup with Mateo Kovacic in the center. As for Argentina, meanwhile, the La Albiceleste’s lineup should look much different.
