The South American champions are clear favorites to reach the final. They beat Van Gaal’s oranje team in dramatic match during the previous round. Croatia defeated their opponent on penalties, taking them out of the competition with the runners up from the last world cup. Brazil was the favorite to win the tournament. The South Americans are the clear favorites heading into the match. They will win in just 90 minutes. A tie could also be a possibility, as Croatia has beaten each of their previous 3 opponents in knockout rounds into extra time.
Martinez and Messi are favorites to win the opening goal and to be the first to score. Messi has scored four goals during this tournament, three of which have been the opening goal. Despite the fact that Croatia is likely to score first, there are very good odds that Bruno Petkovic and Andrej Kramaric will be able to do so.
It looks like the game will be close fought, especially considering that Modric and Messi are likely to have just one last World Cup. Both are captains and leaders of their teams, and they both want to win the ultimate soccer prize. This will be a full-blooded competition with Argentina having slightly better ranking players. Croatia is a tough opponent, and they are very resilient. Do not underestimate them. Place a bet on both teams to score, but also keep in mind that a draw could lead to some interesting live betting.
