Croatia vs. Canada preview
Croatia should be much more satisfied with the draw against Morocco, given that they had only five shots on the opponent’s goal in the entire game, where most of the eyes were on Dejan Lovren and Joško Guardiola to defend our goal against the onslaught of the Moroccans.
The Croatian coach, Zlatko Dalić, admitted that his team “lacked courage” in the first game against Morocco. Still, even with that point, they could pass the group because they are currently in second place in Group F, surpassing third-placed Morocco in fair play points for now. If they do not win against Canada, the chances of going to the knockout phase of the World Cup in Qatar will be less and less.
Alphonso Davies missed an excellent opportunity to increase their hopes of advancing to the group after the first round of the World Cup and on the way to becoming a hero of his nation when Thibaut Courtois saved his penalty in the 10th minute of the match.
Belgium was solid, though, and Michy Batshuayi’s long ball ended with the Fenerbahce forward putting it under the crossbar just before the end of the half. Despite this, the Canadians showed a great game against one of Belgium’s best generations, and even though they are at the very bottom of the table with this defeat, they still have a great chance to pass the group.
Croatia vs. Canada prediction
In the first match of the World Cup group stage, Canada indeed showed a greater desire to attack than Croatia.
Still, all the missed opportunities that the Canadians had against Belgium could backfire in this match.
