World Cup Semi Final Betting Preview & Tips

We’re down to the final four in the 2022 World Cup. While Argentina and France are firm favourites to win their respective semi-final clashes. It’s been a tournament of surprises and perhaps we’ll get at least one more from either Croatia or Morocco.

Argentina v Croatia, Tuesday 7pm

We’re not sure Argentina should be odds-on favourites to win this clash. La Albiceleste have blustered their way through the tournament without really impressing too much. And they have a clear reliance on Lionel Messi.

With Messi in such excellent form, there’s always a chance of success, although Croatia could be a tough nut to crack. The European side have come from behind against both Japan and Brazil to navigate their way through the knockout phase of the competition. This is a great game to consider using an Acca Boosty or reviewing our Acca Tracker tools.

A third successive draw could be the order of the day. With Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic capable of controlling the game in the midfield engine room. You could combine this bet with Under 2.5 Goals strategy which would mean we cover the 0-0 draw and the 1-1 draw.

Croatia have the knowhow of reaching a World Cup final which happened four years ago. And there’s a possibility that we’ll see a repeat of the 2018 showdown where they lined up against the French.


France v Morocco, Wednesday 7pm

It’s hard to write off a Moroccan side who have found a way to beat both Iberian teams in the World Cup knockout stage. The African team are making history and they will be well supported when lining up against the holders.

One does wonder whether the Moroccans can punch above their weight. Considering that so many players are carrying knocks or injuries. They are clearly desperate to put everything on the line although France carry a big threat.

KylianMbappe is the obvious danger man for Les Bleus although the performance level of Antoine Griezmann has been sensational. We will see the French dominate in possession although it comes down to whether they can find space in behind a well-run Moroccan side. This could be a great game to use a Bet365 acca bonus or a Boku sports betting payment provider.

After all, the underdogs are yet to concede a goal in the World Cup thus far. Roman Saiss might be a notable omission for this game. And it would be a huge blow if the captain was out of the biggest game in the history of the competition.
