Croatia vs Belgium Lineups, H2H and Score Prediction 2-1

The Croatian national team will face the Belgian national team at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium on matchday 3 of Group F of the 2022 World Cup . This match is scheduled to kick-off Thursday, 1 December 2022, at 22:00 WIB.

These two teams both have strong squads. However, Croatia are on the brink of qualifying for the last 16, while Belgium are on the brink.

After a 0-0 draw with Morocco in the first game, Croatia beat Canada in the second. The 2018 World Cup runner-up beat Canada 4-1 through two goals from Andrej Kramaric, as well as one goal each from Lovro Majer and Marko Livaja. In that match, the mentality of Luka Modric and his friends deserves a thumbs up because they actually conceded first in the 2nd minute.

On the other hand, after struggling to tame Canada 1-0 through Michy Batshuayi's only goal in the first match, which was also marked by a penalty save by goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard and his partners were defeated by Morocco 0-2 in the second match.

The top two positions in Group F are currently occupied by Croatia and Morocco (4 points each), while Belgium (3 points) is ranked third. Canada (0 points) has already been confirmed as failing to qualify for the last 16.

Croatia only needed a draw to ensure their qualification. On the other hand, Belgium must win. If they are only able to achieve a draw, while Morocco wins or draws against Canada in the other party, then Belgium must leave the 2022 World Cup.
