France vs Croatia Today’s Soccer Prediction
France and Croatia meet next Sunday, 15 July, at 16:00, at the Luzhniki Arena in Moscow, in the final of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. France beat Belgium last Tuesday by 1- 0 and qualified for the third time in its history for the final of a World Cup. Central defender Umtiti’s header from Griezmann’s 51th-minute header was enough for the Gauls to beat the Red Devils. Note that it is the second final followed by the Gauls in major tournaments, precisely two years after losing the Euro 2016 decision at home to Portugal. Zlatko Dalic’s Croatia eliminated England on Wednesday after extra-time, by two balls to one, qualifying for the first time in their history for a World Cup final. The English still scored first, but with a goal by Ivan Perisic in the 68th minute and another by Mario Mandzukic in the 109th minute, the formation of Southern Europe stamped their passport for the final. With more possession and goals, the Croats turned out to be better. The two teams have a short record of clashes as they only met five times. The first duel was curiously enough at the 1998 World Cup when Croatia first reached the semi-finals of a World Cup with the French winning 2-1 and eventually becoming world champions in a tournament they organized. And now, 20 years later, will the Gauls repeat the feat of 1998? Or will we have an unpublished champion?

Soccer Prediction of the Day France vs Croatia
France is looking for the second title in their history. The Croatians intend to continue to make history, conquering for the first time a World Cup. On the one hand, we will have a France that privileges its defensive organization, endowed with physically very strong players, in which the offensive transitions are a constant throughout the game. On the other hand, a Croatian formation filled with technical quality and privileging a game in possession. We believe in a game with more than 1.5 goals.
