CRO vs RUS Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
What started as only as dream of appearing in the world cup has turned into their biggest historic moment in football. Since 1966, when Russia was called the Soviet Union they reached the knockout stages but were eliminated but this time Russia has put one step farther to meet the Croatians at Sochi.
Russia didn’t have much hope in this world cup being clubbed with Uruguay and Mohamed Salah’s Egypt with the champions of Asia, Saudi Arabia in the group but their opening game their dominance as they won the game 5-0 against the Asian champions and in their second game they knocked Egypt out with a score of 3-1. They found themselves on the runners up position in the group and had to face the mighty Spain in the first match of the knockout stage. They held their breath and took the game to the penalties where they managed to surpass Spain and qualify for the Quarter Finals. The Russians may not have been very clinical in their games but they did show that they have all the firepower they need to chase the biggest glory in football.
Croatia, started their world cup journey on a happy note as they managed to win all three of their group games. Their thrashing victory against the Argentine paved their path to the knockout stage. However, in their clash with Denmark in the round of 16, they were not in their normal game. The midfield brilliance that surprised in the group matches lost it magic in the game and the game went on to the penalties to decide a winner. Danijel Subasic’s heroics saved the game for Croatia as he made three saves in the shoot out, helping his team reaches here.
Both Croatia and Russia will have their moments in this game but Croatia is expected to head into the game as the favourites and why it wouldn’t be? Luka Modric and company await the host nation to throw them out of the world cup.
FIFA World Cup 2018, Quarter final IV is to be played at Sochi Arena, at 1900 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 22 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

CRO vs RUS Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Russia’s journey in this world cup has been a remarkable one but like every journey comes to an end, it is most likely that the journey of the host nation will come to an end in this game as they face the Croatians. Croatia may not have been really on the top of their game in their clash against Denmark but it is expected that they are to bounce back in this game against the host nation. This is a do or die match for both the teams and we are predicting a Croatia win in this game.
