Croatia vs. Morocco Odds, Prediction, Referee
As with almost every game Morocco has played during the 2022 World Cup, they’re the underdog against Croatia with moneyline odds of +104 against Croatia’s -138.
But Morocco has more than a fighting chance against Croatia. The North African team has lost just one game this tournament when they met France in the semifinals earlier this week, and their only tie was against Croatia in the group stage. Otherwise, Morocco enjoyed a Cinderella story with wins against top-ranked teams including Belgium, Spain, and Portugal.
Croatia was also on a tear this year until their semifinal loss at the hands of Argentina on Tuesday. Most notably, Croatia eliminated the No. 1-ranked Brazil in the quarterfinals.
In other words, today’s game will likely be an exciting one — even with the World Cup trophy off the table for both teams. Officiation for the game will be provided by Qatari referee Abdulrahman Al-Jassim.
