Croatia vs Canada live Streaming: At the Khalifa International Stadium on Sunday, Croatia will face Canada in a FIFA World Cup Group F fixture.
Morocco and Croatia drew goalless in the opening match of their World Cup campaign. A dominant possession game against the African team led to few chances in the final third for the 2018 finalists.
On Wednesday, Canada, making its first appearance at the World Cup since 1986, were defeated by Belgium 1-0. As Michy Batshuayi scored the winning goal in the 44th minute against the run of play, they conceded a goal against the run of play.
To avoid a must-win situation against Belgium in their final group-stage game on Thursday, Croatia must win this game. If Canada fails to win this match, they will remain at the bottom of the group and will be eliminated.
This will be the first meeting between the two teams.
The Canadian team has lost all four games at the FIFA World Cup so far, while failing to score in any of them.
During Canada’s last four World Cup games, there have been fewer than 2.5 goals scored.
With three games decided on penalties during that period, Croatia is winless in their last five games at the FIFA World Cup.
In Wednesday’s goalless draw against Morocco, Croatia failed to score for the first time at the FIFA World Cup.
Among all competitions, Kockasti are undefeated in their last seven games and will be hoping for a positive result here. A glaring weakness of their game was their incapacity to maintain pace up front against Morocco. There is a possibility that Mislav Orsic will start this match.
There will be a little bit of support needed in the middle of the field for Luka Modric who was the midfield maestro in that match.
In the campaign opener, Alphonso Davies missed a penalty against Belgium and will look to redeem himself. In the World Cup, Canada has a poor record, and their inexperience might prove to be their downfall.
It is expected that Croatia will win this game due to their highly experienced squad.
