Croatia faced off against Argentina at the Lusail Iconic Stadium earlier today as they hope to secure a positive result in the semi-final stages of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The European nation managed to secure a brilliant win over Brazil on penalties in the last round which will give them a lot of momentum ahead of this game.

Zlatko Dalić will set his men up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to name a strong team for this clash. Bruno Petković will get a chance to lead the line for the Croatia national team in the final third.

4-3-3 Croatia Predicted Lineup To Face Argentina


Dominik Livakovic will operate in between the sticks for Croatia as he looks to keep things solid at the back after keeping a clean sheet versus Brazil in normal time. Josko Gvardiol will resume his defensive partnership with Dejan Lovren at the centre of Dalic’s backline as they try to keep the opposition at bay during the 90 minutes.

Josip Juranovic will function as the right-back while Borna Sosa hopes to catch the eye on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them will be eager to put in a good display out on the flanks as they focus on creating some decent chances in the Argentina half.

Domagoj Vida will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.



Mateo Kovacic, Marcelo Brozovic and Luka Modric will make up Croatia’s midfield as they look to win the 50-50 battles at the centre of the park and orchestrate some meaningful opportunities in the opponent’s half. All three of them need to be at the top of their game if the European country are to come out on top in this World Cup contest.

Lovro Majer will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he waits for their chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if Dalic opts to call upon his services.


Ivan Perisic will keep his spot on the left wing while Mario Pasalic gets a chance to shine on the right flank. Bruno Petkovic will spearhead Croatia’s attack on the attacking end of the field. He has to find a way to cause a few problems for the opposition defenders in this World Cup game.

Andrej Kramaric will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages of the game if required.
