Croatia vs Canada Prediction: Our Detailed Preview of the Upcoming Game
The upcoming game – Croatia vs Canada – will be played at Khalifa International Stadium (Doha), and the game will begin at 11 p.m. ET.
Croatia has played at the World Cup six times before and out of those tournaments they have one second place and one third place. Canada, on the other hand, only managed to qualify once for the tournament and that didn’t end well for them because they didn’t even win or draw one of their group games earning them the 24th position.
Croatia’s first match against Morocco ended with a goalless draw, marking the first time since 2006 that Croatia failed to score in a World Cup game. With their hopes of repeating their glorious run in the last World Cup, they can’t afford any mistakes, and playing against Canada in this match can be just what they need to get back in the game.
The bookmakers also favor Croatia in this match-up as their opponents’ first match in the tournament ended with a loss. You can find these and other World Cup odds on our website as the tournament progresses, so check our predictions before the games.
Players to Watch in Croatia vs Canada
Luka Modrić: The captain of Croatia isn’t certain about his future after the World Cup, but that still hasn’t passed. He scored in almost half of his last thirteen international games and has lead the team through very tough times.
Cyle Larin: Larin has fifty-five caps in total and out of those games he scored twenty-five goals. Not only that but eighteen of the goals he scored were in games away from home.
Best Picks and Croatia vs Canada Odds for the Group F Game

Croatia vs Canada prediction: Croatia to Win @ +105 (Pinnacle)
Croatia has been at a lot more World Cups over the years compared to Canada, and their all-time record is losing to France in the 2018 World Cup final. Canada, on the other hand, got to the group stage once in history and lost all of their World Cup games. Even a single draw would be a step up for Canada in the tournament, but there aren’t any indications that we will see one in this match-up.
Croatia didn’t win their last game in Group F against Morocco, but they had a better attack overall and 65% ball possession compared to Morocco. That is still better than Canada’s loss against Belgium where both teams had almost equal ball possession percentage but Canada’s goalie couldn’t save that one shot that got them the loss at the end.
Croatia vs Canada prediction: Multiple Correct Score – 1:0, 2:0 or 3:0 @ +270 (Pinnacle)
The correct score market has always had good odds compared to the moneyline but betting on it is more dangerous. Canada’s last game in the tournament ended with a clean sheet in Belgium’s favor, while Croatia drew their last game in the World Cup against Morocco without any goals.
Since Croatia is the likely favorite for this upcoming game against Canada, we think that history will most likely repeat itself and Canada’s goalie will fail either once, twice, or three times. Croatia has players like Luka Modrić, Mateo Kovacic, and Nikola Vlasic on their side attacking Canada’s defense. We are certain we will see goal on that side of the match-up and the only question is how many exactly. That’s why this market is the perfect one and has the best Croatia vs Canada odds compared to many others.
Other Group F Games and Favorites Right Now
With Belgium the current favorite to win Group F with odds at –200, the other three teams will have a very important second game in the group to determine the winner. If Croatia wins this match, they will likely be the second team to qualify further as their odds of reaching the 2nd round from the group are at –133 for now. Canada and Morocco are at +240 and +260 respectively to reach the second round from this group, and we aren’t expecting much.
