Predicted Argentina XI vs Croatia

Argentina play Croatia in the first semi-final of the World Cup later today.

The winner today will play France or Morocco in the final on Sunday.

AS predict that Scaloni will field the following starting XI against Croatia: Emiliano Martínez – Nahuel Molina, Lisandro Martínez, Nicolás Otamendi, Nicolás Tagliafico – Rodrigo De Paul, Enzo Fernández. Alexis Mac Allister – Ángel Di María, Lionel Messi, Julián Álvarez.

The match is set to kick off at 8 pm CET.
