Croatia have won two of the three matches they have played against Mexico (L1).

Croatia have never conceded more than one goal against Mexico.
Mexico have won only seven of their 30 World Cup games against European opposition.

Mexico could progress to the Round of 16 having scored only once.
Mario Mandzukic has scored with both of his shots on target so far.
Croatia scored more goals last time out vs Cameroon as they had in their previous five World Cup games (3).
