Morocco 0-0 Croatia: World Cup Group F opponents play out turgid draw

 

Match report as Morocco hold Croatia to a goalless draw with chances at a premium at the Al Bayt Stadium; Ivan Perisic and Nikola Vlasic have the 2018 runner-up’s best opportunities while Achraf Hakimi goes close with free-kick in cagey stalemate

 

World Cup 2018 runners-up Croatia made a frustrating start to their Group F campaign as a resolute Morocco secured a 0-0 draw in Al Khor.

It was the third goalless draw at this winter’s tournament in the space of 24 hours, and chances were at a premium with both defences on top. Indeed, three of the last four games at the World Cup have finished 0-0, more goalless draws than there were in the previous 73 matches in the competition combined.

 

There were just attempts on target from both teams in a match played in searing desert heat despite the best efforts of the air-conditioned Al Bayt Stadium, 50km north of Doha.

Morocco have proved to be one of the most difficult sides to beat in world football of late, and have now lost just two of their last 41 games across a three-year spell, while Croatia extended their own unbeaten run to seven games in a game that will not live long in the memory.
