Croatia vs Argentina 13/12/22 Bet Predictions: Croatia ends the dream of the sixth
Croatia held a match that kept the excitement up to the last minute, where both teams were giving everything on the field to move towards the semifinals, everything ended up being decided in the penalty shootout, after a grueling extension for both teams.
In the minutes of both regulation and extra time, the Brazilians had more opportunities to reach the opponent’s goal, although the Croatians had the formula to handle the ball. There was only one shot on goal by the winning team and it would be the same one that would end up tying the match.
The first goal was an exceptional team move and a solo finish by Neymar in the 105th minute + 1′. The equalizer would be complete madness and it would be Bruno Petkovic in the 117th minute who would give his team the key to the door that would lead them for the second consecutive World Cup among the 4 best in the world.
The penalty shootout is, it seems, the right place for the Croatian team, and what a goalkeeper they have to make everything look easier! Once again, the goalkeeper would be the protagonist of the match, not only for what would follow in the penalty kicks, but also for his saves throughout the game. Livakovic saved the first Brazilian shot and the last one was saved by the post. For Croatia, all their kickers scored: Nikola Vlasic, Lovro Majer, Luka Modric and Mislav Orsic.
Croatia vs Argentina 13/12/22 is already two overtimes played, a wear and tear unmatched at this stage of the competition, even if it is a familiar dynamic.
Croatia vs Argentina 13/12/22 Winner Pick and Tips: In a heart-stopping match, the Albiceleste qualifies for the semis.
In this quarterfinal match, Argentina faced the Netherlands. The first half was dominated by the Albiceleste, especially after the first goal, which resulted in a brilliant performance by Lionel Messi in minute 35, filtering the ball inside the area for Nahuel Molina to score the first goal for the qualified team. With this result they would go to the break, dominating. On the return, a foul on Acuña resulted in a penalty that Lio Messi scored the second. In the 83rd minute, the goal would come in the 83rd minute and in the 90th minute + 11′ the equalizer.
The minutes of extra time were agony for both teams, but in the second half very little saved the Netherlands -for the moment- from conceding more balls into their nets. Tempers were running high and yellow cards were raining down, and between fouls the match was slowing down until it came down to penalties.
And what Dibu did! He saved the first two shots of the Netherlands. While Lionel Messi, Leandro Paredes and Gonzalo Montiel scored. Enzo Fernandez missed the fourth but it was Lautaro Martinez who would take the last shot and put the ball in the back of the net. La Albiceleste was through.
There is no comparison of that first match of the World Cup that wines of this team to the level that arrives to Croatia vs Argentina 13/12/22, but expect a high level match.
