Forecast: Argentina’s victory. Coefficient of winning Argentina at the bookmaker
Preliminary overview and prediction
In the search for profitable bets on the matches of the group stage of the 2018 World Cup, we will consider the meeting of Argentina and Croatia.
Argentina in the opening match (like most favorites) disappointed their fans, unable to beat the national team of Iceland (1:1). Messi and the team dominated, the entire match acting as the first number and eventually dealt 28 hits on goal. However, after the Icelanders equalized the score of a large number of scoring chances from the grandee and there was, with the exception of Lionel’s unbeaten penalty. Obviously, the team of Argentina should be added both in creation (not enough creative) and in defense.
Croatia, however, defeated Nigeria without much brilliance, scoring a goal in each half (2:0). Before the break, the Africans scored themselves, and after the rest from the penalty spot, success was confirmed by Modric. The advantage of the Croats was huge and for sure they could if they wanted to play even more powerful and score more. But there are at least 2 more games ahead, which are expected to be heavier, which means that extra forces will not interfere.
Especially set to win will be Argentina, because in the case of another misfire, the chances of a flight will increase by an order of magnitude. Croatia is able to exert no less resistance than Icelanders, but will still yield. After all, he simply does not know how to play as tightly at his gates, which is what the Latin American stars will use. My bet –
