Croatia is the favorite of the group and is currently in the first place with 3 wins and a draw on 4 matches. Ukraine is doing quite good in this tough group with 2 wins and 2 draws (against Turkey and Iceland). Croatia is the clear favorite in this match with excellent players who all have important roles in their clubs. Modrić, Rakitič, Mandžukič, Perišić, Kovačić and many others are players that are a guarantee for a great team and I think this WC in Russia could be the last big tournament for this great generation to produce a great result. I expect Croatians to attack from the first minute on Maksimir and I can see Ukranian defense having major problems at the back. Guests have made major improvements since Shevchenko arrived and are probably the biggest threat for Croatia even though they are in the same group as the Euro 16 sensation, Iceland. This should be a great match, weather conditions will be ideal and I expect an entertaining game. Over 2.5 goals is my prediction.
