Argentina vs Croatia: Match Predictions

Argentina has undoubtedly played some excellent football in recent matches. The team looks unstoppable with their brilliant combined efforts on the field. Messi’s team has never really looked in trouble and will pose a serious threat to Croatia in the games to come. 

Croatia, despite having shown a lot of courage against Japan in the Round of 16 and then against Brazil in the quarterfinals, will find it difficult to outplay a team as good as Argentina. Hence, it seems highly possible for Argentina to win the upcoming semi-final match against Croatia.
