Final score: Iceland 1 – 2 Croatia
You can bet on the next matches:
It’s Iceland’s and Croatia’s third game of Group D, meaning that everything is on the line. If Argentina dominates, as expected, this game could decide which team clinches second place.
A point won’t be enough for Iceland and they will need to attack from the off in order to gain the advantage. Croatia have shown they can score goals and have netted five times at the World Cup so far. A high scoring 2-2 draw can be backed at 19.00 with Bet365.
Why Should I Bet on Iceland vs Croatia?
Nigeria have well and truly gone and thrown the cat amongst the pigeons in Group D by beating Iceland with three teams now jostling for the last spot in the round of 16. Fortunately for Croatia, they had matters sewn up against Argentina and have already qualified for the round of 16. Their opponents Iceland are hanging on by a thread and when they meet at the Rostov Arena a draw looks the obvious result. Punters can back a stalemate with William Hill at 3.40.
Iceland vs Croatia Preview
Iceland’s shock loss to Nigeria has derailed their hopes of a place in the last 16. A missed Sigurdsson penalty proved costly as the Super Eagles soared to second place in Group D. The upcoming meeting with Croatia is huge for the Icelanders and even if Croatia are priced as only marginal favourites going into the tie they will have a mountain to climb.
Both Teams To Score Prediction
Croatia have scored against every team in Group D so far and Iceland have one of the poorer defences in the group. Punters looking to back both teams to score can find it with Betstar at odds of 1.95.
This group looks far from decided with three teams in the mix for a place in the next phase of the competition. Iceland’s loss to Nigeria has made it that much harder for them to progress and with a draw on the cards against Croatia, Iceland in all likelihood will be going home.
