Over the last 10 Third-Place Playoff matches, there have been an average of four goals per game as teams let their defensive strategies go and try and put on a show for their fans.
This match doesn’t have the same dead rubber feeling of previous years, with a lot of pride on the line for these sides. Morocco are the first African team to reach this stage of the tournament and will want to continue breaking records here.
Croatia will be fighting for Luka Modric in what looks to be his final World Cup match and will want to get the captain involved amongst the scorers even if they don’t claim the win here.
The over should be much shorter here but as these teams already met this tournament and drew 0-0, the odds are skewed. Croatia had just five shots that match, their lowest ever in a World Cup game, while Morocco were looking to lock down and salvage a point rather than go for the win.
This match is all about storylines and what better way to cap off the Luka Modric story than with a goal in his final World Cup match.
With the likelihood of plenty of goals and the very strong chance that Modric will take any penalties for Croatia, he looks a great chance to score here.
Modric is third for shots for Croatia behind only Perisic and Kramaric so for a safer bet, Modric to have 2+ shots at $2.25 is a strong play.
For Morocco, Ilias Chair ($5.00) is yet to play a minute at this World Cup but is an electrifying player and should get game time in this final match, looks a great chance to get on the scoresheet.
