PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

It’s decision time in Group D of the World Cup as Iceland go head to head with likely group winners Croatia in Rostov. These teams know each other too well, they played in the same qualifying group. Will they exceed over 2,0 in total?

Even a win may not be enough for Iceland, as they will need to keep an eye on Argentina’s meeting with Nigeria in Saint Petersburg. If Nigeria win, Iceland will go out. If Argentina draw or win, it will all come down to goal difference.

Heimir Hallgrimsson’s men have one happy memory of meetings past with Croatia: the 1-0 win in the qualifiers for Russia 2018. Three of their players will also feel right at home: Sverrir Ingason, Ragnar Sigurdsson and Bjorn Sigurdarson all play for Rostov.

The Croatians made the best possible start to their campaign with victory over Nigeria and a particularly impressive win over Argentina. With their place in the Round of 16 now secure, they have the incentive of trying to emulate the nation's magical run at France 1998. Before they set about that task, they can have a say on who joins them in the next round. Should they beat or draw with the Icelanders, they will send them home.

Possible line-ups
Iceland: Hannes Halldorsson; Birkir Saevarsson, Kari Arnason, Ragnar Sigurdson, Hordur Magnusson; Aron Gunnarsson, Emil Hallfredsson, Johann Gudmundsson, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Birkir Bjarnason; Alfred Finnbogason

Croatia: Lovre Kalinic; Tin Jedvaj, Vedran Corluka, Domagoj Vida, Josip Pivaric; Milan Badelj, Mateo Kovacic, Filip Bradaric; Marko Pjaca, Andrej Kramaric, Ivan Perisic

Iceland need a win and result of Nigeria-Argentina to go their way. Croatia looking to maintain perfect start and equal a World Cup record. As we see Croatia’s coach Zlatko Dalic will use some people from the bench who will want to demonstrate their best playing skill. At the same time this is a chance for Iceland to score. We expect an interesting game with one highly motivated side. Hence, we predict over 2,0 in total and propose to bet on this with a fine coefficient of 1.80.
