Prediction: Croatia win.

Best odds: 5/4.

Bookmaker: Bet365.

Iceland and Croatia will meet in the third round of group D on Tuesday evening in Rostov-on Don, with their respective chances of progressing to the knockout stages very far apart.


The likeable Icelanders put in a strong, disciplined performance to deny group favourites Argentina in their opener, holding the two-time World Champions to a 1-1 draw in a dramatic fashion. Unable to do the same against a highly motivated Nigeria team in round two, they now face certain elimination unless they book three points here.

The variety act that is the World Cup often throws up a handful of surprises, and when it comes to Group D, we’ve already seen our fair share. It was considered to be the Group of Death from the word go and it’s lived up to that reputation thus far, with four more games scheduled to come that will shape the immediate future of all four nations. In this encounter, Nigeria will take on Iceland, in a battle between the two teams who were considered to be the underdogs behind Argentina and Croatia at the start of the tournament.

Verdict: Draw

On Thursday night, Argentina and Croatia clash in a potentially crucial clash in Group D of the World Cup. A win for either side could be pivotal in deciding who makes the knockout stages of the group.

Both sides head into this clash unbeaten in five World Cup games, including qualifiers, so this could be a tight encounter.


Argentina headed into World Cup 2018 with a number of concerns surrounding their team. Many of those concerns were confirmed in their opening match, as La Albiceleste drew 1-1 with Iceland after Lionel Messi saw a penalty saved.
