Croatia looks to book their ticket back to the World Cup finals facing a favored Argentina side.
For the second straight match the Croats are rather big underdogs posted at +410 with Argentina at -125 and a draw at +230.

Ok, so Croatia is back in the World Cup semis even though they have only won one match in the tournament.
They played to two draws in group play and have won on penalties in their two round of 16 matches, which both ended 1-1 after regulation
Croatia G Dominik Livakovic was sensational in the huge upset win over Brazil in the last match stopping 11 shots and saving the first penalty in the shootout.
The Croats have only scored six goals in five matches and four of them came in a 4-1 blowout win over Canada in group play.
The MF trio of Marcelo Brozovic, Luka Modric, and Mateo Kovacic and the Croatian defense has been lights out in the tournament.
The scoring chances have been few and far between but they have taken advantage of in their last two matches forcing penalties when they were down 1-0 in each.
Croatia is ginning to be only the fourth team ever to reach back-to-back World Cup finals.
Argentina showed their resolve in their last match where they were up 2-0 and gave up two late goals including the last one in 11 minutes into injury time.
The Albiceleste lost to the Croats 3-0 in the last World Cup and Messi and company look to avenge that loss.
In Argentina’s 2-2 penalty shootout win over the Netherlands the ref was card-happy handing out a whopping 17 yellow cards. Because of that the South American side will be without Gonzalo Montiel and Marcos Acuna.
Alejandro Gomez is also nicked up and while Rodrigo De Paul and Angel Di Maria have also been nursing injuries each should be match fit and in the starting 11 against Croatia.
Messi ranks second in Qatar in both goal contributions and created chances but can the legend crack the Croatian defense that has been more than impressive in the tournament.
Free Argentina vs. Croatia Prediction: Croatia Win In PK’s
Croatia’s lockdown defense and penchant for killing long passes, which Argentina likes, will be key for this match.
Their scoring chances have been infrequent but they have come through when it counts. This match will be close all the way around and
Messi will come through and have his hand in a goal and the Croats will not be handed a clean sheet.
I give the nod to Croatia with Livakovic having a great tournament and for the third match in a row the Balkan squad will force penalties and
come out on top and make it back to the finals.
