Croatia vs Canada

Canada fought admirably in their loss to Belgium earlier this week, but they now face a Croatian side who will want to get some running room between themselves, Canada, and Morrocco. Croatia have long been a lethal side in international tournaments, but can Canada solve the puzzle?

Croatia vs Canada betting preview

The 2018 runners-up had a sluggish start to the World Cup, drawing with a Morroccan side that should’ve presented a very winnable matchup. However, they are still unbeaten in their last 7 games and will look to extend that streak against Canada.

This is only Canada’s second-ever World Cup appearance and they’ll be wanting to at least put a goal on the board before their run comes to an end. Whether or not that will come against a Croatian side is another question entirely.

In all reality, Croatia has too much talent to be kept quiet. With names like the creative Modric and crafty Perisic causing issues, Canada will have to brace for another game of playing off the back foot.

Canada did show some attacking prowess in their debut and with names like Cyle Larin at their disposal, they cannot be overlooked. That Belgium team is star-studded and even they looked puzzled at times as to how to break down this very tight Canadian team. If Croatia look as lethargic as they did last time out, there could be both goals and points for the taking.

Croatia vs Canada betting pick

under 2.5 goals feels safe here. Canada could come out all guns blazing, but even if they do, it’s unlikely they get more than two past Croatia. I don’t think Croatia play with a pace strong enough to blitz past a Canadian side that looked more than capable of keeping Belgium quiet, so under 2.5 goals as a selection should have an edge.
