Croatia have reached their first ever major final and will be incredibly motivated for this. They are however coming up against the strongest team in the tournament and it is hard to imagine a tired and ageing Croatia defence being able to hold Mbappe and company for the full ninety minutes.
Plenty of uncertainty as to how both of these teams will line up and how motivated they are makes this match a tough one to predict. Martinez's side will likely want to go out in style and score goals which makes both teams to score an interesting proposition in this match when it comes to the betting markets.

This is a huge game in the history of both these nations and that could lead to a tense encounter early in the match especially. Croatia's midfield is one of the best around and England will get numbers behind the ball so there is every chance this could become a cagey game with goals at a premium.
This match promises to be a classic if their Round of 16 and quarter-final matches are anything to go by. France look in ominous form and appear to be peaking at the right time and while the Belgians look strong offensively, their naivety at the back may cost them against this potent France attack.
It is the 97th minute of Brazil – Costa Rica, on Friday June 22. In the middle of the field, Casemiro retrieves the ball and gives it to Douglas Costa. The latter crosses to Neymar who scores the second goal of the game.....
Both of these teams are difficult to beat and that is largely because they base their style on being organised and difficult to break down. There are absentees on both sides which may affect their performance, but it is still hard to see many goals in this one so consider under 2.5 goals.
Colombia are somewhat underrated and the only game they have not won in the World Cup so far was the opening match against Japan after they conceded a penalty and red card in the 2nd minute. Even without James Rodriguez, they will be a tough test for England and expect this to go to extra-time.
Mexico will look to implement the same game plan that they used against Germany but they will have to bounce back after the Sweden loss. Brazil are showing signs of improving with every game and they should extend the good run of results they have against Mexico.
Belgium are in relentless form and they will be super confident of progressing here. Japan edged their opening game against Colombia thanks to a penalty and red card in the second minute but they have otherwise struggled, so Belgium should win this one comfortably and kill the game early on.
