Yellow card double from TipMan Tips for Thursday's World Cup matches.
Dejan Lovren to be booked
A huge game for Belgium in Group F and a must win game to qualify for the knockout stages. After a poor performance and friction within the camp, they are going to have to regroup quickly to beat a very solid Croatian team.
TipMan Tips thinks Lukaku should be recalled to the starting 11 given his goalscoring record - netting all three of their goals in the last two meeting which Belgium went onto win. With this in mind, his physical presence will give the Croatian defence a tough time with Lovren man marking him.
Lovren already been booked this tournament and averaging 5.72 ground duels and 2.41 ariel duels a game could see these stats increase with Lukaku as a target man
Anthony Taylor take charge of this game averaging 3.86 cards a game with an equal number of cards being shown in the both the first and second half which shows to us that he’s not afraid to reach for his pocket from the very first minute.
Tajon Buchanan to be booked
Morocco come into their final game with a fantastic win over Belgium and if they avoid defeat they will see themselves progress to the knockout stages. Morocco have lost to Canada in all previous meeting (W2 D1) but their last meeting was in 2016 and Canada have certainly come a long way since then.
Both teams have committed on average 12 fouls a game and have also drawn 13+ fouls a game too so we can expect this to be no different with tackles flying in. This coupled with the fact that Raphael Claus is taking charge who averages over four cards a game.
Buchanan may get limited chances like he has all tournament, and we expect the frustration to creep in. He has already racked up six yellow cards in 16 games for club and country and you can certainly see why averaging over two fouls a game as a forward.
