Croatia vs Canada Match Info

2022 FIFA World Cup — Group Stage
Croatia (0-1-0) vs. Canada (0-0-1)
Date: Sunday, Nov. 27, 2022
Time: 11 a.m. ET
Venue: Khalifa International Stadium — Al Rayyan, Qatar
Coverage: FS1

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is in full swing with more action slated for Sunday, Nov. 27. Group F will be in action when Croatia and Canada square off at 11 a.m. ET.

Despite controlling the ball for nearly two-thirds of the match, Croatia couldn't get the job done against Morocco on Wednesday, resulting in a 0-0 draw. Canada also failed to win its tournament opener, losing 1-0 to group favorite Belgium.

After being runners-up in 2018, can Croatia get back to looking like a legitimate challenger? Or will Canada use its loss as motivation to get the first World Cup win in the country's history?

Croatia vs Canada Prediction & Pick

Canada looked solid at times against Belgium but ultimately failed due to a lack of experience. That was made evident when Alphonso Davies missed a crucial penalty kick. Even though Croatia wasn't victorious either, it's important to remember that this is a country that beat teams like England, Argentina and Denmark four years ago.

After playing Morocco to a draw, I expect Croatia's defense will frustrate the Canadians. Canada will push early and often, but look for the Croatians to tough things out in the end.

Final Score Prediction: Croatia: 2 | Canada: 1

Croatia vs Canada Best Bet

Canada has a lot to prove on the world stage, especially after only registering 13.6% of their shot attempts on goal against Belgium. Experience and a strong defense give Croatia the edge here, proven by its deep 2018 run. Getting the most value out of a Croatian win, back Croatia on the moneyline.
