WORLD CUP 2022 :- Argentina vs Croatia Preview, Line Up, Match Info


The first finalists of the Qatar World Cup are known today. Argentina will face Croatia in the match, which will be held at 12.30 IST.

The match will be played at Lusail Stadium in Doha. Argentina is the only team from Latin America left in the last four. That's why the fans hope that Al Bizelestine will be able to defeat the European team, Croatia. Superstar Lionel Messi is the strength of the team. Messi has scored 4 goals and 2 assists so far.  If the player brings out the same quality today, Argentina can qualify for the final by defeating Croatia.

Scoloni and his team made a brilliant comeback after losing their first match to Saudi Arabia. Argentina qualified for the semi-finals by defeating the Netherlands in a shootout in the quarter-finals. Wingbacks Acuna and Mondial will miss today's match due to yellow card suspensions. At the same time, it is known that superstar David DeMaria will be in the starting XI today. On the other hand, Croatia qualified for the semi-finals by defeating title contender Brazil. They did not suffer a single defeat on the group stage. The team's hope is in the veteran player and captain of the team, Luka Modric.

The two teams met in the last World Cup held in Russia. Croatia defeated Argentina by three unopposed goals that day. Today's match is Argentina's target. Argentina captain Lionel Messi has played three matches against Croatia so far. The star also managed to score two goals from it. Even today, the hope of the team rests on Messi's boots.

Argentina will return to a 4-3-3 formation from the 5-3-2 formation used against the Netherlands in the last match. Try the same attack and formation that Croatia used against Brazil today.  Croatia, on the other hand, is aiming for a second consecutive final.

In any case, expect a fiery battle when the 2014 runners-up and the 2018 runners-up come head-to-head.
