Match preview

It’s the battle for third place at the Qatar 2022 World Cup this Saturday before the final showdown on Sunday as Croatia and Morocco battle it out against the odds in what has been a thrilling World Cup finals to witness.

Croatia were unlucky not to make it to yet another final, but at the end of it all, it was a Lionel Messi clinic that ended the hopes of a nation. Nevertheless, Croatia have proven tough to beat and they now have a chance to beat Morocco after a 0-0 draw between the two in Group F.

It’s always interesting to see who will play in the third-place playoffs on the teamsheet. It’s likely we will see Luka Modric play once more for his country at the World Cup, but it is also likely to be his last game at a finals and it could well be his farewell appearance for Croatia.

Morocco went 1-0 down within six minutes against France and soon lost 2-0 after Kolo Muani scored from being on the pitch for just a few seconds. Nevertheless, these were the first and only two goals Morocco have let in this competition from an opposition player, as the goal they let in against Canada was an own goal.

Back in the group stages, these two would have just two shots on target against one another in what was one of the dullest games of the World Cup. Croatia did have 65% of the ball, but they may struggle to get the win here if Morocco plays like it has done since that day.
