Here we have interesting match in the qualifying round in Group A where Croatia will take on guests Belgium. Belgium's Golden Team are capable to continue their unbeaten run. Marc Wilmots' side have been superb in qualifying, scoring freely and conceding just two goals in eight games.
RESULT: 1-2 WON
Croatia know they must beat Belgium to have any chance of overtaking the visitors for top spot in Group A. At present they are five points behind Belgium Croatian team is ok, good players capable of big things, but atmosphere around dressing room is not an ideal. Many Croatian journalist and fans question Stimac ability. On the other hand with talents such as Modric, Kovacic and Mandzukic, Croatia have the quality to down Belgium. Croatia's defence has not been the most strongest and they conceded goals against Wales, Scotland and two against Liechtenstein. Two important player from defence Srna and Simunic will miss the game. Things are not looking bright to the Croatian team, because they only need to win against Scotland in last round to avoid being worst second placed team position.
Belgium are full of potential and future stars, especially in offense. Belgium have a record of 7-1-0 in this group and have scored an average of 2.25 goal per away game. Their draw at home against Croatia is the only blemish in their copybook. This game will ensure their travel to Brazil. Wilmots takes his squad to Zagreb in good shape. Despite the loss of Kompany through injury, the Belgians should have enough firepower at the other end of the field to ensure that they are able to get on the scoresheet a couple of times in this game.
Belgium look good enough to avoid defeat at Zagreb and might even be able to qualify in style. Croatia cannot catch them a book an automatic spot at the World Cup
