Iceland: Aiming for 2nd spot (Recent Form: LDDLLL)

Iceland are on 3rd place in group D with 1 point, being 2 points short of 2nd Nigeria. Therefore, it’s possible to progress further. Iceland face Croatia on Tuesday in Rostov. “We’ve played Croatia four times in four years, we’ve often said we’re like a married couple - we’re trying to get divorced, but we always meet up again. We were ahead of them in our (qualifying) group and we’ve already beaten them once in Iceland, so we at least have that confidence with us when we play them. If we manage to qualify for the final 16 it will probably be the biggest success in the short Icelandic football history,” said coach Hallgrimsson.

Probable line-up: Halldórsson; Sævarsson, Árnason, Sigurðsson, Magnússon; Hallfreðsson, Gunnarssonl; Gislason, Sigurðsson, Bjarnason; Finnbogason

 

Croatia: Want to repeat the 1998 success (Recent Form: WWWLWL)

Croatia have won both their group matches so far and by doing so they’ve already booked their place in last 16. Players want to perform as well as their great team from France 1998, who reached the semi-final. “There has been a lot of comparison between those two teams. They did a miracle in France in 1998. I was nine years old watching those games and dreaming about being in a similar situation. Now we are here and we hope to catch them or come close to them. We are ready to do that. We just need to continue doing what we did so far,” said Perisic, who is the only player who played in the last match from 1st minute and is also expected to start on Tuesday.

Probable line-up: Kalinic; Jedvaj, Corluka, Caleta-Car, Pivaric; Badelj, Kovacic, Bradaric; Pjaca, Kramaric, Perisic

 

THE BETTING VERDICT:

Summing up, it looks like this might be a low-scoring clash. Iceland are rather defensive-minded, whereas Croatia don’t need to push for a win so perhaps there won’t be much action nor goals in this outing.

O/U Pick: under 2.25 goals
