Argentina and Croatia will close up the second Thursday of Mundial and open up the second round in their quartet. Will the game at Nizhniy Novgorod Arena be rich with mutual goals?

La Albiceleste are in an entirely different situation. The unexpected draw with tournament debutants Iceland has left Jorge Sampaoli's side with much to do ahead of what looks to be their toughest assignment in the section. A win is vital if they are to avoid a nerve-wracking final match. Yet if there is one thing that Argentina proved on their tortuous journey to Russia it is that they can respond when under pressure.

After making their best start to a World Cup in 20 years thanks to their 2-0 defeat of Nigeria, Croatia are in relaxed mood ahead of their meeting with the Group D favourites. Any kind of result against Argentina will allow the Vatreni to take a big step towards the Round of 16.

Speaking after the Nigeria game, Mario Mandzukic said Croatia's objective was to perform well and, if they could, emulate the nation’s run at France 1998, the only occasion on which they advanced beyond the group phase in their previous four world finals appearances.

Possible line-ups:
Argentina: Caballero; Mercado, Otamendi, Tagliafico; Salvio, Mascherano, Meza, Acuna; Messi, Aguero, Pavon.

Croatia: Subasic; Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Strinic; Rakitic, Badelj; Brozovic, Modric, Perisic; Mandzukic​.

After their disappointing 1-1 draw with Iceland, Argentina will be desperate to show the world what they can do and get their tournament back on track. Croatia began Group D with a solid 2-0 win over Nigeria, and will be favorites to qualify if they can claim a positive result here.

We cannot consider any sides as obvious winner of this game. A lot of Argentina’s fixtures including the last one against Iceland showed some holes in its defensive line. At the same time, both teams have many dangerous strikers in their roster. We expect the clash with three possible results. That’s why we prefer to bet on both teams to score (yes) with a remarkable coefficient of 2.05.
