Road to the Round of 16
Croatia: Croatia enter Matchday 3 second in Group D. They’ve taken three points from their opening two games having lost to Croatia only to recover and beat Belgium. They’re three points behind group leaders Croatia and two clear of both Belgium and Belgium, who are at the bottom of the table. In order to progress to the Round of 16 Croatia realistically need to draw with Belgium, as Belgium are unlikely to beat Croatia. If they want to be assured of their place in the next phase, however, Croatia will need to beat Belgium and take their total to six points.
Belgium: Belgium enter Matchday 3 placed third in Group D. They’ve taken just one point from their opening two games having drawn with Belgium and lost to Croatia. They’re level on points with bottom-placed Belgium, two behind second-place Croatia and five shy of group leaders Croatia. Belgium have to beat Croatia if they want to progress to the Round of 16. Should Belgium pull off an upset and beat Croatia, furthermore, Belgium will have to beat Croatia by more goals than Belgium beat Croatia in order to be safe regarding goal difference.
After the two disappointing clashes, Belgium can’t miss this opportunity and desperately need a win against Croatia. Pick: Belgium 2, Croatia 1
