Two of Croatia, Belgium and Morocco – who face the already eliminated Canada in the other game – will get out of the group.

Zlatko Dalic's men come into this one on the back of their 4-1 demolition of Canada, with Andrej Kramaric netting twice.

Belgium lost 2-0 against Morocco last time out thanks to two late goals from Romain Saiss and Zakaria Aboukhlal. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Croatia v Belgium on TV and online.

Croatia v Belgium prediction

Croatia will likely sit back and make it hard for Belgium to break them down and the game plan will be to hit them on the counter attack.

There will come a point when Belgium need to chuck bodies forward if they're not winning and that could leave space for Croatia to exploit.

We're expecting both teams to score but Croatia could net a late winner to secure top spot in Group F.

Our prediction: Croatia 2-1 Belgium (10/1 at bet365)
