ARG vs CRO Dream11 Prediction: Argentina vs Croatia Top Fantasy Picks
Argentina Team News
- The fullbacks for the Albiceleste, Gonzalo Montiel and Marcos Acuna, are suspended from this game due to an accumulation of yellow cards.
- Molina will continue at RB, whereas Nicolas Tagliafico will slot in to replace Acuna at LB.
- Alejandro Gomez, who had an ankle sprain and missed the action in the last game should be back to full fitness.
- Angel di Maria and Rodrigo de Paul, who have been nursing niggles of their own are also expected to be back to full fitness.
- Lionel Messi was in god mode against the Netherlands. He created the first goal from nothing. Scored a penalty after that in normal time. Took the first penalty in the shootout and scored there too. His influence will be key against Croatia. However, it remains to be seen if he is restricted by the FIFA BAN
- Scaloni opted for 5 at the back for the Netherlands game. He might go back to using 4 defenders and Lisandro Martinez could lose his place, which could mean di Maria is thrown back into the mix.
Croatia Team News
- Dalic will be happy as he got a fully fit squad for the game against Brazil and the same should be expected here as well.
- Borna Sosa and Mislav Orsic recovered from their respective injuries and will be expected to start in this game.
- Mario Pasalic started from the RW position against the Selecao and can be guaranteed to start in this game as well.
- Andrej Kramaric’s inclusion in this game might be doubtful, as Dalic might look to include the scorer of the goal in their game against Brazil, Petkovic.
