Match Betting Previews

Morocco versus Croatia - Wednesday, November 23rd - Group F

Morocco is one the more seasoned African squads representing their continent in the WC this year, and for good reason.

A squad to look out for, they are the home of many severely undervalued European stars.

Whether it be on the defensive end, the middle of the pitch, or with the attacking trio above, Morocco has players that can do straight damage.

A dominant run within the AFCON region for the past few decades now, they have a chance to prove themselves in one of the toughest groups in the whole tournament.

Group F has four perfectly capable teams with aspirations to move on further.

If Morocco wants to beat Croatia in this match, however, we need to see their attacking fire go forward and finish at the net.

Players like Hakim Ziyech and Achraf Hakimi are more than likely going to be influential in determining what goes down this Wednesday.

Croatia made the finals of WC 2018 and have definite veteran talent combined with some up and coming youngsters.

There is not a lack of belief within this roster and their experiences in the past have reflected their positional play.

Skilled in every aspect, Croatia has stars like Luka Modric and Matteo Kovacic to orchestrate their every move, making it much easier on the rest of the team.

There will be a ton of opportunities in the final third of the pitch due to the service of players like Modric and Kovacic, but it is up to the front three to put in the work.

Defensively, Croatia is stacked to the brim with stout and tall players, so getting through them is an easier task than many might think.

Betting Prediction - Take Croatia to take a scintillating group F match this Wednesday, and the over 2.5 Asian total!

Brazil versus Serbia - Thursday, November 24th - Group G

Neymar Jr and the Brazilian NT are more than ready for another huge opportunity coming their way for WC 2022.

A country that has more than a lion share of superstars, Brazil will head into their group stage opener with a ton of confidence.

Most of their players both on the starting side and bench are in-form for their clubs, which is an insane luxury to have.

They have a large amount of talent to boot, and the rotation of players will be interesting to see in this particular stage of the tournament.

Nearly everyone expects them to make it out of the group stage unscathed, but these matches will tell us how good Brazil truly is.

After missing out on a trophy to Lionel Messi and Argentina in the Copa America just two years ago, they smell blood in the water and will look to start off in the biggest way versus Serbia.

Serbia has a point to prove in Qatar this month and their roster composition has given them the best chance to do exactly that.

Forward Alexander Mitrovic will be the main man to highlight on your screens when Serbia takes the pitch, and he is the likely source for most of their goals in this campaign.

Midfield is not a problem within this Serbia side, with talented individuals like Milinkovic-Savic and Dusan Tadic leading the attack up the pitch.

They face a tall task in Brazil this upcoming Thursday, but they will happily take on the international giants.

Betting Prediction - A surprise draw between a gelling Brazil and motivated Serbia in one of the more interesting matches of the first week of group stages!
