After Belgium’s loss against Morocco in the group stage of the world cup, Belgium fans became violent in Brussels which is the capital of Belgium. Belgium’s current FIFA performance is said to be the Golden Era of Belgium’s soccer. Belgium ranked 1 in the FIFA ranking from 2018 to 2022 just before the month the world cup started. On paper, the current Belgium team is the strongest team in Belgium in history, fans demand a world cup trophy with this team but they lost their second match against Morocco.

Can Belgium beat Croatia?

Belgium has the ability to beat any team in FIFA but the most important thing is the gameplay in 90 minutes. Belgium’s team fails to show their European superiority in soccer against an African team and lost in the group stage. Though Belgium has beaten Canada in their first match they need to beat former runner-up Croatia in their next match which will be on 1st December at 18:00 Thursday.

Belgium’s team has lots of pressure and they will try their best against Croatia to beat them. Batshuayi, Ethen Hazard, and Bruyne are playing a very professional and tactical game but they seem lacking in finishing and converting their goals.

Roberto Martinez’s formation in the last match was 4-2-3-1 and their forward players like Batshuayi, E Hazard, and Bruyne played very well but Roberto Martinez should focus on defense rather than attack in their next match against Croatia. Croatia is not a team who will miss an opportunity in their attacking third to convert it into a goal.

How Belgium can Qualify for Round of 16

This world cup won’t be giving Belgium more opportunities, they have to win the next match to qualify for the round of 16. Unfortunately, their next match is against Luka Modric’s Croatia. Belgium’s loss against Morocco was really a surprise for FIFA fans, especially Belgium fans but this loss moved Belgium in do or die situation.

There is one more scenario where Belgium can qualify but they depend on Morocco vs Canada match. If Canada beats Morocco with a goal difference of 3 and Belgium draws with Croatia then Belgium can qualify by beating Morocco with a goal difference.

Can Croatia get the Benefit of pressure on Belgium?

Belgium will play aggressively and attack in the match against Croatia. But any defensive mistake of Belgium like they did in past matches against Morocco and Canada may give an advantage and opportunity to Croatia and Luka Modric’s team knows how to convert opportunity into a goal.

Belgium needs to be focused in the next match, they should be cool-minded and should not overload pressure on themselves. Belgium Fans should corporate with them and should allow them a free hand in their next game.

Hope everything goes well.
