Morocco will be greatly content with their form in recent matches. They have managed four victories along with a draw and defeat in their last six matches. This will be only their second World Cup finals appearance since the turn of the century. Morocco have underperformed in recent tournaments, including the African Cup of Nations but head into the World Cup on a five match unbeaten run.
Croatia have been tremendous in recent times. In their last six outings, they have earned five victories along with a draw. The nation was handed a big boost in September as they earned qualification to the UEFA Nations League finals. Last World Cup was all about Croatia as they completed a dream run to the final. They certainly still have the ability to pull out some surprises and fascinate the world.
Abdessamad Ezzalzouli is a major doubt for Morocco due to a thigh injury. Apart from him, there are no fitness or injury issues for either of the two countries.
