Belgium find themselves in a spot of bother at the 2022 FIFA World Cup following their defeat at the hands of Morocco on matchday 2. They next face Croatia at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium where a win or draw for Croatia sees them through to the next round. The Red Devils start the day third in Group F which means only a win helps avoid an early exit. The performance of the team has been below par and it is cause of concern for manager Roberto Martinez. Despite having a plethora of stars in their rank, the team has played some ordinary football, particularly in the last match. Croatia started with a draw against Morocco but defeated Canada in style.

Andrej Kramaric scored two goals against Canada and his confidence will be high following the brace. He will play a key role today in the attacking third alongside Ivan Perisic and Marko Livaja. Luka Modric, Marcelo Brozovic and Mateo Kovacic are some of Europe’s elite midfielders and they can wrestle control of the game from Belgium easily. Jasko Gvardiol has been one of the best young players in Qatar and Belgium will find it tough to find a way past him in the backline.
Romelu Lukaku will start for Belgium which is a massive boost for the side considering how crucial he has been for the national side for the past few years. Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard have been woeful, and it will be interesting to see if they get another opportunity in the starting eleven. Axel Witsel will sit deep and protect the back three allowing Youri Tielemans to venture forward.
