The two European giants in Croatia and Belgium are set to face each other at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium on Thursday. Both teams are in contention to reach the knockout stages of the 2022 World Cup.

Croatia sit atop Group F with four points and a draw will be enough for them to seal a round of 16 berth. A victory would guarantee them the top spot in the group and Zlatko Dalic's men are unbeaten in their last eight matches across all competitions.

Belgium have their work cut out as they need a win after suffering a shock defeat to Morocco in their previous match. A draw will not be enough as they are currently behind the Atlas Lions on goal difference.
