Whenever you’re looking to watch a sport, it’s always a good idea to look at the odds in order to bet on the game. For example, if you’re looking to watch the Croatia v Japan matchup, you should look at the betting odds. This way, you can be sure that you’re getting the best possible price.


Defending champions Japan will travel to Croatia for the huitième finale of the Coupe du monde. The two teams will meet on Monday 5 December 2022 at 16h EST at the Stade Al Janoub. This could be a defining moment in the history of the Coupe du monde.

Japan’s impressive victory over Spain gave the Samurai Blue a chance to qualify for the next tour. In addition, the team resisted a bid from the Europeans to win the Cup of Nations. The 2-1 win over the Europeans was a notable feat and should be seen as an important step towards qualifying for the World Cup.

The Japanese have scored 6 goals in 6 matches, but they have also conceded 5 times. Against Spain, Japan was able to score the simplest of goals with an Ao Tanaka strike. They are also playing a 3-4-3 formation.

Croatie will likely use a 4-3-3 formation and have a full squad to choose from. Several of their players have shown good form during the competition. It should be noted that Croatie has never faced an Asian nation in a competitive match, though they have beaten Diables Rouges (0-0) and Canada (4-1).

The Croatie has also rattrapped Belgium in a Cup of Nations match, but Japan is still the defending champions and is expected to put in a solid performance. The Japanese have a lot of reasons to believe that they can beat Croatie, but they have to prove their mettle first.

The match has a good chance of being a rematch of the 2006 match amicale. It will also be a challenge for the Japanese to keep their cage in check.


Having won Group E, Japan have qualified for the round of 16. Croatia finished second in Group F, finishing two points behind Morocco.

Zlatko Dalic has said that Japan are one of the best teams in transition and pressing. His team will be looking to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Croatia have never lost in the last 16 of a World Cup. They have also beaten two of the past three World Champions in Qatar. Their only defeat came in the final against France. Their squad remains largely the same as that of the World Cup finals.

Croatia will have experienced players such as Dejan Lovren, Josko Gvardiol, Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic. They also have a few young players that have shown they can play at a high level.

Japan have a solid squad with many attacking players. Their players in midfield have been stepping up to the plate. Midfielders such as Shuohi Gonda, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Kaoru Mitoma and Wataru Endo have all been impressive. They will be looking to continue this form against Croatia.

Croatia has been undefeated in nine of their last 10 World Cup matches. They have not lost an international game since a 3-0 loss to Austria in the UEFA Nations League. Their defensive record is impressive. They have only conceded one goal in the tournament so far.

Croatia have also played Germany and Spain in the group stage. They beat Germany 2-1, and came back from a one-nil deficit against Spain. The comebacks against both Spain and Germany have been one of the highlights of the tournament.

The first Japan-Croatia match in the round of 16 of the World Cup will be a must-see match. Both teams will have a good chance of scoring. This is a match that will be well-covered in the UK by BBC One.


Neither Japan nor Croatia are favorites to win their quarter final match, but both are favored to win their group and have a good chance of getting to the last four. Both teams have been impressive so far, but it’s hard to predict who will emerge victorious.

Japan has the best defense in the tournament, but they aren’t particularly good at creating chances. A rotation of their top players could pay off against Croatia.

Similarly, Croatia has an excellent defense, but their forwards aren’t among the best in the world. Their forwards aren’t a threat to run in behind, and their midfield isn’t strong enough to keep the ball from the Japan defense.

Both teams will want to put pressure on the ball, but Japan will need to find a way to sustain attacks against their defense. The midfield will be a key part of this matchup.

The biggest question is whether or not Japan can beat a team that has been undefeated since the tournament started. While Japan is no doubt technically gifted, their slow-moving style hasn’t served them well so far in World Cup.

Japan beat Costa Rica and Germany in the group stage, but lost to Belgium and Costa Rica in the knockout round. If Japan can find a way to win in Qatar, they’ll make it through to the next round. Their most impressive game, a 2-1 win over Spain, was the first time they have won against a team that’s qualified for the World Cup.

The Japan-Croatia matchup hasn’t been particularly exciting in the past, but both teams will be looking for a win on Monday. This may be the only matchup between these two in the round of 16. Neither side has scored, but a goalless draw is possible.


Despite a 1-0 defeat against Spain, Japan have made the most of their World Cup opportunities. The Japan team has won two matches against European opposition and have won the group stage of the competition. The Japanese team will face Croatia in the round of 16 on Monday.

Japan and Croatia have met three times in the past. The Japanese team has lost to Croatia in 1998 and 2006. However, they have a good record against the country. The Japanese team is known for its scoring prowess and has a diverse squad on standby.

Croatia is a defensively strong team that has made a steady progression through the competition. However, they have failed to score in as many games as they have in their previous thirteen matches.

Croatia is led by Luka Modric. He has been crucial in winning games for the team and has the ability to control a game. The Croatian side will have to stay on top of the game, despite the pressure from the Japanese team.

Croatia will have to keep the game on the script, even though they’ve been winning games consistently. The Croatian side will try to maintain attacks on the Japanese defense. The Japanese team may try to sit deeper and frustrate the heavy possession opponents. They may also switch formations fluidly.

The Croatians have a solid defensive record, but the forwards aren’t as good. The main striker, Andrej Kramaric, isn’t a threat to run in behind. He needs the ball played into his feet to be effective.

Croatia has a habit of playing all or nothing at the World Cup. The team wants to cause turnovers and high-up areas, while also probing wide areas.

Betting markets

Neither Croatia nor Japan have the greatest claim to fame but it’s hard to argue with the fact that these two teams are among the most competitive in the tournament. The Japanese are looking to qualify for the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time in their history and Croatia is seeking a second successive appearance in the finals. This is a tough pill to swallow, especially with the likes of Germany and Spain lurking in the shadows.

Among the most exciting matches to watch will be the one between the aforementioned teams on Monday, December 5th. Both teams are averaging around two goals per game and are arguably the strongest in the tournament. The Japanese have one victory against Canada and the Croatians are undefeated in their last three games. The duo will be meeting in the round of 16 and are looking to make it four. This game will be a tight one.

One of the best ways to wager on the match is to play the underdog. The Japanese may not be a team to lay claim to being the best in the tournament but they have been able to pull off upsets over the likes of Spain and Canada in the past. The Samurai Blue aren’t an easy team to beat and haven’t been shut out in over a year. A solid defense and an underrated attacking spark should give the Japanese a fighting chance.

The best bet is to wager on the under 2.5 goals. The aforementioned Japan vs Croatia match will likely be a low scoring affair. There are a few other options, such as betting on the under ten goals or if the match will go to extra time.

Croatia’s draw with Belgium

Neither Croatia nor Belgium were at their best in their World Cup match. The two teams were unable to find the scoring touch that was necessary to send one of them into the quarterfinals. Both teams needed positive results in the previous games.

Belgium lost their first group match against Morocco 2-1, and needed a positive result in this match to advance to the quarterfinals. The Belgians were unable to get the result they needed, with Morocco winning a 1-0 victory over Canada.

Croatia played a very good game, with the defense nearly perfect. Belgium fought back and had several good chances to score. Romelu Lukaku had several great chances, but missed a couple of golden chances after coming on as a substitute.

Croatia was awarded a penalty in the 15th minute. But the penalty was cancelled after the video review found that Dejan Lovren’s shoulder was offside. Then in the second half, Belgium had multiple goal-scoring chances. Lukaku was unable to score from a curling shot, and from several close range chances.

Belgium has failed to progress out of the group stage in two of their last eight appearances. This will be the fourth time in a major tournament that Belgium has failed to make the quarterfinals.

Roberto Martinez decided before the World Cup that he would not coach Belgium again. He said after the game that his team had performed “incredibly” throughout the years. He also said that “real fans” would enjoy watching the team.
