CROATIA v MEXICO BETTING PREVIEW

Croatia is fresh off its 4-0 thrashing of Cameroon that sent the African nation packing after only two games. Mario Madzukic returned for that match, after being suspended for the opener, and managed to impress, getting on the scoresheet twice. They need to beat Mexico to reach the last 16, assuming Cameroon do not produce a miracle against Brazil.

Skybet Betting BonusCoach Niko Kovac will have fully fit squad to choose from as Luka Modric and Ivica Olic have recovered from minor knocks. Mateo Kovacic should come in for Sammir and along with Perisic and Olic will support Mandzukic up-front.

Mexico arrive to this game with the advantage of knowing a draw would be enough to seal their ticket to the round of 16. They beat Cameroon 1-0 in their first game and then followed up with a strong 0-0 draw with Brazil. Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa had an amazing night coming up with a handful of acrobatic saves. The Mexicans are one of only two teams yet to concede a goal in the tournament, but they have lacked attacking power, scoring only once

Miguel Herrera could name an unchanged side that will see Javier Hernandez forced to settle for a place on the bench again. His 5-3-2 formation has worked like a charm in the first two matches, with captain Rafa Marquez acting as an extra holding midfielder in the attacking phase.

Mexico don’t have a terrific record against European opponents at the World Cup, having won just seven of thirty matches. Croatia have won two of the three matches they have played against Mexico and they have never conceded more than one goal to El Tri.

CROATIA v MEXICO PROBABLE LINEUPS

Croatia (4-2-3-1): Pletikosa – Srna, Corluka, Lovren, Pranjic – Modric, Rakitic – Perisic, Kovacic, Olic – Mandzukic.
