Croatia and Saudi Arabia take on each other in their final warm-up game before the beginning of the World Cup later this month. The Wednesday clash is not about the result but all about the players gaining sufficient game time experience ahead of the biggest event in the world of football. Both sides have made it to the tournament but their expectations will be different. While Croatia might aim to do one better after reaching the final four years ago in Russia, Saudi Arabia have a difficult challenge in getting out of its respective group.

Placed alongside Argentina, Mexico and Poland in Group C, Saudi Arabia have an extremely challenging task in getting out of their group. However, they can take confidence from their recent games. They have defeated Iceland 1-0 before playing out a 1-1 draw with Panama earlier this month. On the other hand, Croatia put a winning run of four games together in the UEFA Nations League. It will give them much-needed confidence ahead of their showdown with Saudi Arabia.

Possible Lineups

The match on Wednesday is all about giving enough players sufficient time on the pitch. Besides, the match can be used as an opportunity to experiment with new systems and tactics. Hence, a lot of rotation can happen on both sides. Saudi Arabia have an injury doubt in the form of Salman Al-Faraj, hence he might not be risked for this match. Likewise, there are also question marks over the participation of Croatia’s Borna Sosa. They might also not take a chance with him on Wednesday, especially with the World Cup just days away from beginning.

Croatia possible line-up: Ivusic, Vida, Lovren, Gvardiol, Barisic, Brozovic, Kovacic, Majer, Vlasic, Perisic, Kramaric

Saudi Arabia possible line-up: Al-Owais, Abdulhamid, Al-Amri, Tambakti, Al-Shahrani, Al-Najei, Kanno, Al-Malki, Asiri, Al-Daswari, Al-Brikan
