After the disappointment of not reaching the final, teams can suffer something of a hangover. If any side has the experience to deal with that, it is surely Croatia as they are cold-blooded and don’t feel any pressure. Croatia will win the game by 2-1 against Morocco and their midfield will be the key factor in not allowing the African side to play their natural game, especially Modric, Brozovic, and Perisic. Morocco will be dangerous because of Hakimi, Ziyech, and Bono. Though Croatia was the runner ups in the last edition, It will mean a lot for Moroccon side to finish in the 3rd position and be the best dark horse story in the history of the World Cup.
