On Thursday, December 1, 2022, Croatia and Belgium will face off for a spot in the round of 16 of the World Cup. The Group F match is set to begin at 3:00 p.m. GMT at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Qatar.
After earning four points in their previous matches, Croatia is slightly dominant to lead the final group stage. Belgium, on the other hand, is likely to be eliminated but must recover from its 2-0 loss to Morocco. After experiencing a goalless draw with Morocco in their opening fixture, Croatia has made their comeback with a majestic 4-1 win against Canada this Sunday, keeping their hopes alive for the upcoming matches and eliminating Canada in the previous round.
Although 12th-ranked Croatia underperformed at the beginning of the FIFA World Cup 2022, it came out whooping with a victory against Canada. Both teams stand equal, and there is the possibility of a draw in this fixture. Betting players can check Croatia vs. Belgium odds on FIFA sports betting sites and choose their favorite team to wager on. As far as the latest record is concerned, both teams are on an even foot.
With an incredible three goals scored by Romelu Lukaku across the two previous matches between Belgium and Croatia, Belgium has unquestionably come out on top in both of these contests. And as per the history of the competition, Croatia have lost barely two matches against European rivals. However, the teams had never faced any FIFA World Cups. Neither of the teams has an assured spot for the quarterfinals in Qatar, making the square-off more critical.
Croatia fans must be looking for their star player, Luka Modric. However, Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic are also ready to support the win. On the other hand, Thibaut Courtois had a disappointing game against Morocco, but he is geared up to take Belgium to the quarterfinals.
