Croatia vs Mexico by 20legend

Croatia
VS
Mexico

 

Croatia took a comfortable 0-4 win against Cameroon as expected. The idiotic performance of Alex Song that ended in a red card obviously destroyed Cameroon’s hope, but Croatia was still the best team previous to the incident. The adding of Mario Mandzukic brought another dimension to the offensive approach of Croatia. He brought attention from the central-backs of Cameroon which created some good space for the quicker Olic and Perisic, in addition to scoring two goals in his first WC game in Brazil.

 

Mexico has also impressed very much, but they have to give all their credit to their goalkeeper Ochoa for having four points ahead of this game. Ochoa made it impossible for Brazil to get the ball into the back of the net with a bunch of fantastic saves. Mexico did also produce a lot of chances against Brazil, especially with a lot of good shots outside the penalty box. With some more luck with their shots, they could actually have scored and managed to beat Brazil based on Ochoa’s performance. Mexico totally dominated their game against Cameroon as well, but the referee was also a point for discussion and they only got 1-0, while they scored three times.

 

The frame around this match is totally clear. Croatia has three points and must win tonight in order to progressing, while Mexico only needs a draw to go through. Both teams impressed against Brazil, while it is important to remember that Croatia was exposed to a wrong penalty-decision at a crucial moment when the score was 1-1, at a time where they had control against Brazil. In my opinion Croatia is a bigger favorite against Mexico that the odds are telling, especially with the possibility of using Mario Mandzukic up front. Croatia has no other option but to win, and I think that they have what it takes in this WC, as they are also a more tactical team than Mexico, with wise players like Modric who can control the tempo throughout the 90 minutes. 2.50@WilliamHill has a brilliant value for a team like Croatia as I espect the odds to drop.

I choose to pick the odds at 2.50 from Bet365 instead, as WilliamHill slashed it down to 2.40 right before posting.

Hi,

It's fanny, no one of the punters of this site managed to guess the result.
No one of the "great punters" of this site thought of betting on goals, everyone expected fast paced game and goals, but most predictions were for under, so how came to an end, that no one guessed ???
Think of that the most of the punters here copy and paste others who who manage to be the first ones to post a tip, so if anyone posted of tip that the game will be over, most of the predictions would be for more than two goals, but unlucky first bet and all lost.

So, most of you who pretend to have an id
