Fifa World Cup, 3rd place play-off CRO vs MAR: Croatia win, take third spot- QHN

The third-place play-off between Croatia and Morocco will be one between two very defensive teams which like to play on the counterattack. While Morocco have still been able to attack continuously against the likes of Spain and Portugal and even against France, Croatia have found it hard to score against quality opposition. 

In the previous meeting between these two sides, Morocco also held Croatia to a 0-0 draw. This time around the likes of Hakimi, Boufal, En Nassiri and Ziyech would look to keep the attack up and make pressure on the Croatian defence and midfield. 

The Vatreni on the other hand would look to make the most of the opportunity at hand against a relatively weaker opposition than they have recently faced and try and go home with a win in their bag.
