Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Croatia vs Canada


In the 2022/23 Nations League, the "draughts" started with an unexpected home defeat against Austria (0-3), but then won 4 matches out of five, and took first place in the group, leaving behind France and Denmark.

With a defeat, the Croats also started the qualifying tournament for the 2022 World Cup (0-1 from Slovenia), but then won 7 victories in 9 matches, and deservedly won the group.

Croatia has participated in five World Championships. In 1998, she reached the semi-finals, then did not leave the group three times in a row (2002, 2006, 2014), and won silver medals at the 2018 World Cup, losing only to France in the final: 2-4.


At the CONCACAF Gold Cup, which took place last summer, the Reds reached the semi-finals, losing there to the Mexican national team. In the qualifying tournament for the 2022 World Cup, Canada took first place, having suffered only two defeats in 14 matches and conceding 7 goals. In the fall, Herdman's team played three friendly matches: they beat Qatar (2-0), lost to Uruguay (0-2) and drew with Bahrain (2-2).

Canada has played only once in the World Cup (in 1986 in Mexico), and lost all three group stage matches there, without scoring a single goal.

Game Totals Prediction

Over the past year, the Croats suffered only one defeat, and in the League of Nations they conceded only one goal each from Denmark and France in two-legged duels. Such figures are impressive, and especially against the backdrop of a modest Canadian team, in which only two strong players can be distinguished - Alphonso Davis and Jonat David. Despite a stellar pair of forwards, the Reds rely primarily on solid defensive play. You should not expect an abundance of goals, so the win-win option would be "Total Under (3.0)" for 1.4. In our opinion, the forces are absolutely not equal, and here you can safely take the "Victory of Croatia" for 1.72, the combined option - "Victory of Croatia + Total Under (3.5)" for 2.2 also looks great.
