17′ Big Chance

The space opens up through the middle, and Perisic aims for the top corner, but it dips too late and sails just over the bar. It’s the closest anyone has come so far.

18′ Huge Chance

Morocco gets the ball in an advanced position, but they lose it again. They get it back near midfield but need to figure out what to do with it. Eventually, this time Ziyech whipped an inviting cross towards the far post, which En-Nesyri should have read better and knocked into the goal.

32′ Promising Attack

Modric plays a one-two with Perisic down the left before cutting Morocco open with a through ball into the box. Kramaric chases it but then fires his cross straight at Aguerd, who clears it off the line.

64’ Rocket Shot

Morocco takes a free-kick from the center of the field, and though it’s a long way out, they put in one of their best players to put it in the back of the net. Ziyech rolls it into Hakimi for a strike, but Livakovic gets there to punch away.

The match between Morocco and Croatia took place mostly with only a few saves and shots. After the first half, Both Team is even. Modric and Perisic had some good opportunities, but they scored on one shot in the lead-up time. At the other end, an En-Nesyri had a chance to score, but he couldn’t make it happen when Ziyech crossed the ball.

Despite Pinnacle’s possession in this game and a better amount of opportunities, Croatia was unable to take advantage before the two minutes of stoppage time at the end of the first half.

Dalic will be looking for more of a threat after the break as Morocco has looked very dangerous on offense, but without testing Livakovic, which is something Ronaldo will want to improve in the second half.

Both sides had just two shots on target each in the game. Croatia had better chances with Perisic and Modric shooting over the bar, while Vlasic denied Hakimi with a good save. At the end of the first half, Mazraoui saw his header saved by Livakovic before Hakimi’s powerful long-range strike went wide.
