Croatia, beaten finalists in 2018, will be hoping to go one step further in Qatar.

Croatia finished runners-up in the previous World Cup in Russia after winning all three of their group games against Argentina, Nigeria and Iceland. They would make it to the final by winning each of their knockout games either on penalties or after extra-time, before eventually succumbing to an impressive French side. 

It will be tough ask for them to replicate that run in Qatar, with them being drawn with Belgium, who currently sit second in the world rankings and a possible last-16 tie with with either Spain or Germany.

At 36, this will be playmaker Luka Modric’s last World Cup tournament and the 2018 Ballon d’Or winner will be hoping to go out in style. 

Croatia to win 2022 World Cup odds

Croatia are currently 45/1 to win the 2022 World Cup.

Zlatko Dalic’s side finished top of their qualifying group, winning seven of their 10 games and losing just once in a group with Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Cyprus and Malta.

Croatia have qualified for five of the last six World Cups, finishing runners-up to France in Russia in 2018, the first time they had ever made it to the final.

If Croatia win Group F

If Croatia were to win Group F, then this would be their route through to the final.

  • Last 16: The runners-up of Group E which consists of Spain, Costa Rica/New Zealand, Germany and Japan in Al Rayyan on the 6th December.
  • Quarter-finals: The winner of match 56, played between Group H winners and Group G runners-up. 
  • Semi-finals: The winner of Match 59 which will include one of the Group B or Group D winners, or runners-up from Group A or C. 

If Croatia finish second in Group F:

  • Last 16: The winners of Group E in Al Wakrah on the 5th December.
  • Quarter-finals: The winner of Match 54, played between Group G winners and Group  H runners-up.
  • Semi-finals: The winner of Match 57, which could include the Group A  or C winners, or runners-up from Group B or D.

As mentioned, Croatia made it all the way to the final in the previous World Cup in Russia and are 16/1 to do it again in Qatar.

They are 3/1 to win their group and 14/19 to qualify for the last 16, which will be the minimum that will be expected of Zlatko Dalic’s men.

Croatia Golden Boot odds

Andrej Kramaric is currently 100/1 to win the 2022 World Cup Golden Boot.

The Hoffenheim forward scored eight goals in 35 games across all competitions during the 2021/22 season and has 19 goals in 71 caps for the national side. 

He has struggled for goals in competitive games for Croatia though, scoring just one World Cup goal and two in nine appearances during qualifying.
