Japan vs Croatia 05.12.2022
Japan have been one of the surprise packages of the ongoing FIFA World Cup and rightly so, with wins over European heavyweights Germany and Spain to book their place in the Round of 16 as group winners. The Asians had to do it the hard way coming from behind on both occasions to earn the victories. The Japanese will back themselves going into this fixture because of their form and record against their round of 16 opponents.
Although they did not record a win in four meetings against the Europeans, they only suffered a loss and on the evidence of their performance so far, Croatia will be doing themselves a favour not to underrate the Asians.
Croatia meanwhile finished second with 5 points behind Morocco after earning a draw against the Africans, a win over Canada, and a nerve-wracking 0-0 draw against the Red Devils of Belgium. They will go into the match as the less fancied side, but they have enough quality to stop the rampaging Japanese.
However, given the number of shocks and surprises at this World Cup, plus the fact that the Japanese defence has been breached in their three games, plus a knack for scoring, we will pitch our tent with both teams to score.
