Canada will play their second game of the 2022 World Cup on Sunday, as they search for a first ever win at the tournament. However, they will feel confident that they are edging closer towards that achievement, and it could finally come against the 2018 World Cup runners-up Croatia.

Before Betting On Croatia vs Canada 

The race to finish second in Group F at the World Cup looks set to be a captivating storyline to follow at the World Cup. Only one side has picked up three points after one round of fixtures, with Belgium recording a 1-0 win against Canada on their return to the grandest stage.

However, few would argue against the statement that Canada were much the better team throughout that contest, and they only had themselves to blame not to have taken at least a point. They were handed a glorious opportunity to score a first World Cup goal in the opening 15 minutes, but Alphonso Davies saw his penalty saved. Canada would continue to create opportunities, but they lacked calmness in the final third to take their chances.

Croatia were the pre-tournament favourites to join Belgium in the next round of the competition, but they will need to be much better than they were in their opening match. They were sluggish throughout their opening fixture against Morocco, and in fairness, neither side did enough to win the match.

Croatia managed to record just two shots on target in that fixture, as they failed to convert their massive possession into clear opportunities. They will need to be much more reliable in front of goal against a Canadian side that are likely to create their fair share of chances.
