This Morocco vs Croatia match is one of the most unpredictable of this first matchday of the World Cup. Not the sexiest pair of teams in world football, but they can provide an amazing experience for viewers and bettors, as there are plenty of wagering opportunities in this game.
Croatia was the team to watch in the previous World Cup, in Russia. Luka Modric led his team to the Final, leading an impressive roster. A roster that also included Mandzukic, Rakitic, Perisic, Kramaric, Kovacic, and Kalinic. A true Dream Team that brought Croatian football one win away from the biggest title in World Football. Four years later, the Croatia team is based on the very same core. A team that is ageing, but still has a certain quality. And then you have Morocco. A hard-fighting group that shouldn’t be overlooked. Underestimate them and they will cause problems.
Morocco vs Croatia
Date: 23 November 2022
Time: 10:00 (GMT)
Venue: Al Bayt Stadium (Al Khor)
Morocco is no pushover. They are 8-2-2 in 2022 and they have more than a few quality players. Sofyan Amrabat, who didn’t feature in the last friendly against Georgia, will play in this one and he will be one of the many Moroccan players who earn their living for some of Europe’s top clubs. Paris Saint-Germain’s Hakimi, Bayern’s Mazraoui, Chelsea’s Ziyech, and Sevilla’s En-Nesyri are all ready to go for this important Morocco vs Croatia team, between two teams that will fight to qualify for the knock-out stage.
Four years after their historic run to the Final, the Croatians once again have a strong team. One last dance? Maybe. But this dance could be one to remember.
Croatia has loads of quality, especially when it comes to midfield. Luka Modric will have Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic next to him.
Stanisic will likely get the nod to start at right-back. The biggest decision Dalic will have to make regards the position of the centre-forward. Bruno Petkovic and Andrej Kramaric have equal chances to feature in the Starting XI.
Morocco (4-3-3): Bounou, Mazraoui, Saiss, Aguerd, Hakimi; Amrabat, Ounahi, Amallah; Ziyech, En-Nesyri, Boufal
Croatia (4-4-3): Livakovic, Stanisic, Sutalo, Gvardiol, Sosa; Brozovic, Modric, Kovacic; Pasalic, Perisic, Petkovic
Morocco to Win: 3.80
Croatia to Win: 2.10
Over 2.5 Goals: 2.35
Under 2.5 Goals: 1.60
Both teams have plenty of offensive talent. They can score and the option of both teams finding the net has immense value.
