Morocco vs Croatia Prediction & Pick

Morocco is a team to watch out for in Group F. Walid Regragui has taken over as head coach and star winger Hakim Ziyech has re-joined the squad as a result. This is still a team that failed to win a single match in group play back in 2018, though. Taking down a veteran Croatia squad is going to be tough.

Croatia rosters one of the best midfielders in the game in Luke Modric and a rising star of the sport in Josko Gvardiol. The 20-year-old defender uses his strength to gain possession of the ball and his elite passing abilities to keep possession. Look for him to play a key role in a close win for the Croats.

Final Score Prediction: Morocco: 1 | Croatia: 2

Morocco vs Croatia Best Bet

Croatia's defense has been on point during international play. It's a unit that has not given up more than a single goal in each of its last six matches, which includes three clean sheet victories. Croatia should only need to score 2 goals to win here and it did that in six of its seven matches in the 2018 World Cup.

Bet: Croatia ML (+100)
