The European nation are the clear favorites to record a win and should be well-backed to reach the quarter-finals.
After an unlikely trip to the round of 16, Japan will look to extend their World Cup run when they take on Croatia on Monday, December 5 at Al Janoub Stadium in Qatar.
The Samurai Blue have just picked up a thrilling victory over Spain, thanks in no small part to the play of winger Ritsu Dōan. The 24-year-old is responsible for two of Japan's four goals during the group stage.
By contrast, Croatia narrowly escaped Group F after earning a draw against Belgium in their last game. The Vatreni reached the World Cup final in 2018 and will look to star midfielder Luka Modrić to guide them back.
Will Japan continue their improbable run? Or will Croatia find their form and advance to the quarterfinals? Let's look at the current betting odds to find the best bets and make a match prediction.Japan vs Croatia Odds 3-Way Handicap: Japan (+280) | Draw (+225) | Croatia (+105) Draw without bet: Japan (+160) | Croatia (-225) Over/Under goals: Over 2.5 (+125) | Under 2.5 (-175) Both teams to score: Yes (+100) | No (-145)
Japan vs Croatia odds are updated as of December 2 at 7am on BetMGM Sportsbook.
Croatia are modest favorites in their matchup with Japan, with sportsbooks leaning heavily on the Under.
If you're looking to gamble, there are many worthwhile options from a value standpoint.Tips Japan vs Croatia
Japan 0-1 Croatia
Vatreni's defense has been stellar so far, conceding just one goal in the group stage. Furthermore, both Japan and Croatia have experienced low-scoring matches up to this point.
I expect the same when they meet on Monday.
I give the advantage to Zlatko Dalić and Croatia due to their talent and experience. As mentioned above, this team reached the World Cup final just four years ago.
Hajime Moriyasu's Japanese team has performed admirably, but at this point, they are playing with house money. I am by no means expecting a one-sided affair, but a knockout exit for a second consecutive World Cup looks likely for Samurai Blue.
Look for Croatia to top Japan with conservative, technical play while dominating possession.Betting Tips Japan vs CroatiaJapan averaged 34% possession in the group stage.Croatia averaged 52% possession in the group stage.All four of Japan's goals came within 11 minutes of each other, all in the second half.Croatia is one of the five teams in the round of 16 with one or fewer goals conceded. Japan vs Croatia best bet
➕ Multiple Correct Score: 0:1, 0:2 or 0:3 (+230) at BetMGM Sportsbook
BET: 2 unit(s)
I would usually recommend a multiple correct score bet (0:1, 0:2 and 0:3), but you might get better value by sticking with Croatia's combined win on the under.
Croatia will dominate possession in this match as they look to Andrej Kramarić to reach the back of the net after securing two group stage goals.Featured
We are nearing the end of the 2022 World Cup schedule with the last eight teams left standing after the conclusion of the round of 16.
Nations that reach the quarter-finals will feel like they have a legitimate shot at reaching the final at Lusail Stadium on Sunday 18 December. The eight teams at that point will be just three wins away from lifting the World Cup trophy.
The quarterfinals could produce several intriguing potential matchups: France vs. England, Portugal vs. Spain and Senegal vs. France are some of the most compelling head-to-heads that could happen. Holland vs. Argentina is already on the calendar.
The final draw of the quarterfinals will be known on Tuesday, December 6 when the last round of 16 matches are played.

The World Cup 2022 group chart shows there are two halves with each producing a World Cup finalist who will compete for the trophy in the championship game on Sunday, December 18.
A finalist will come from the following list of teams from one side of the bracket with a mix of representatives from various regions:Netherlands (def. USA) Argentina (def. Australia) Japan/Croatia Brazil/South Korea

The quarterfinals work in the same way as the round of 16.
They are made up of four single-elimination matches in which a winner must be determined on the day. So if the teams are tied after the regulation 90 minutes, 30 minutes of extra time is played.
If the teams are still level at the end of the 30-minute extra time period, then the match will proceed to a penalty shootout to determine the winner.penalty failed
This is how the penalty shootout works: each team has five attempts to score a penalty kick against the opposing team's goalkeeper and each side determines which player gets to shoot and the specific order.
The team that successfully converts the most penalties after five rounds is deemed the winner and advances, although the match will officially be recorded as a draw on each team's record.
If the teams are tied on penalties taken after the end of the fifth round, both teams get an additional round of tries until the deadlock is finally broken.
A player cannot be named to take a second penalty attempt in the same penalty shootout until all 11 players on the field at the end of extra time, including the goalkeeper, have made an attempt.History of the World Cup quarterfinals
In the seven men's World Cup tournaments held since 1994, the 56 available quarterfinal places have been taken by 26 different nations listed below.
A total of 16 European nations, five from South America, two from North America and Africa, and one from Asia have reached the elite eight since 1994.
Argentina, France and the Netherlands are the first three quarter-finalists in 2022, adding to their record of reaching the competition's final eight in recent years.

Raheem Sterling returns to the UK from England's World Cup camp after armed intruders broke into his home while his family was inside.
Sterling missed England's 3-0 win over Senegal in the round of 16 after being ruled out of the squad due to a "family matter" shortly before kick-off, having started two of the three matches in the Three Lions in the World Cup so far.
It is understood that Sterling wanted to get home as soon as he was alerted to the robbery, as he was so shaken and concerned for the well-being of his children.
Manager Gareth Southgate confirmed that Sterling will return to the UK, but it is understood that the player could return to Qatar if the circumstances are right.
England will play France in the quarter-finals on Saturday.
Asked if Sterling could play a role in the tournament again, Southgate said: "I really don't know, it's a situation that needs time to manage, I don't want to put pressure on him."
"Sometimes football is not the most important thing and the family must come first."England's potential path to the World Cup final

Messi, meanwhile, marked his 1,000th career appearance in style in Argentina's win over Australia, to also move alongside Dutch star Cody Gakpo and Enner Valencia, who won't be able to add more to his tally after Ecuador's elimination. in the group stage.

The current winner of the World Cup Golden Boot award from the last World Cup in 2018 is in tremendous shape. Second in goals (12) in the Premier League this season only Erling Haaland has more (not in the World Cup).
England have been quite successful in recent world and European tournaments and are expected to reach at least the round of 16. This bodes well for the English captains' chances of a second Golden Boot. Odds 7-1 (+700)2018 World Cup Golden Boot Winner Harry Kane

Also with 12 goals for Ligue 1 this season, the French superstar is clearly the second favourite. Runner-up to Harry Kane in 2018 with 4 goals, Mbappé became the second-youngest player behind Pelé to score in a final.
France are also expected to go deeper into the tournament further improving Mbappe's chances. Betting odds 8-1 (+800)3. Karim Benzema
Update 19 November: An injury has potentially ruled out Karim Benzema
Injuries and poor form put him out of favor with the French team in 2018. However, the reigning Ballon d'Or winner is back and the third favorite to win the top scorer award.
Still battling injuries this season, he is expected to be ready for France's opener on November 22. Betting odds 10-1 (+1000)4. Lionel Messi
Many people consider Messi to be the GOAT and he is certainly making his case this year in excellent form. His timing is excellent as he will enter the World Cup with an Argentine team that has already been chosen as one of the favourites.Lionel Messi

This could be Messi's last chance to compete on the biggest stage in world football, so motivation will be in abundance. Betting odds 12-1 (+1200)5.Neymar
It was a comparatively weak performance for the Brazilian in 2018 with just two goals in the tournament. The 30-year-old has really found his way of late with 11 Ligue 1 goals for PSG.

(EFE) Qatar 2022 football match played this Saturday at the Khalifa stadium in the town of Al Rayyan.
The Netherlands, the eternal contender, triple runner-up in the world -1974 (led by the unrepeatable Johan Cruyff), 1978 (without him) and in 2010, when they lost in the final of the World Cup in South Africa against the virtuous Spain- and two more times semifinalist -the last one eight years ago, in Brazil, where she finished third, in the first stage of Louis Van Gaal- could not miss the opportunity to apply among the candidates to lift the Cup in Qatar. And this time she made good predictions that marked her as a favorite against the United States.
Since it was third in the first World Cup in history, that of Uruguay 1930, the United States, which presented the quarterfinals of Korea and Japan 2002 as the best classification -a stage that it achieved after eliminating Mexico-, was faced with an opportunity to match that mark. And, far from compromising, he launched the attack from the start; in a team in which the former Barcelona player Sergiño Dest, in the right lane, and the Valencian player Yunus Musah, indisputable in the center of the field with McKennie and the captain, Tyler Adams, formed from the beginning.
It was Christian Pulisic, the North American '10' -the one who with his goal knocked out the brave Iran of the Portuguese Carlos Queiroz from the tournament-, the one who, as soon as the game started, put Noppert to the test. Gregg Berhalter wants a team with a winning mentality, he wants his players to have fun; and learn from experience. Without fear of anyone. Taking the initiative.
But the Dutch, with whom Barcelona's Memphis Depay formed from the beginning - who returned to the team's attack in the third and last game of the group stage, in which, after defeating the host of the tournament, the 'oranje' certified their pass to the round of 16- and Frenkie De Jong, were not uncomfortable giving the ball to 'Team USA'.
And in the first seriously braided play, brilliantly, passing through the catalyst De Jong, the ball ended up reaching Dumfries, Sergiño's teammate at Inter, who with a sensational service on the right enabled Depay to hit with a hammer. Dry Turner. Before celebrating the goal with the team's rising star, Cody Gapko (PSV Eindhoven) - who scored in all three group games - repeating the gesture of twisting his fingers in his ears.
Van Gaal's team - which has gone 19 games in a row without losing as coach, with only one defeat in the last 47 - returned to leave the ball to the North Americans. And he was, therefore, about to burn himself. Because, in 1942, Tim Weah, son of the legendary George Weah, Ballon d'Or winner in 1985 and current President of Liberia, took a kick that put Turner in serious trouble.
The Dutch woke up, perhaps aware that the USA, before beating Iran, had only conceded a draw, a penalty, to Gareth Bale's Wales, before bringing out the colors, with another equalizer against England. And, after Gapko was about to pick up Ream's wallet; In another play, less elaborate, but very similar to that of the first goal, Dumfries crossed again from the right so that this time it was Daley Blind -son of another myth, Danny Blind, former coach of his country- who, just before that the first act closes, place the 2-0. Generating a true pineapple that he united, in his technical area, all the orange players.
At the restart and this time out of necessity, the Americans repeated the script of the first half. And in the first minutes they turned on the rival goal, with two clear chances for Ream (m.50) alone, in front of Noppert; and from McKenney (m.53) -who had enabled his teammate in the previous action-, with a shot from outside the area.
Although, at the time it opened, the Netherlands showed that it can be lethal. In minute 61, Memphis tested Turner again, who deflected a corner from a distant shot that was aimed at the squad. And nine minutes later, once again the Barça forward was on the verge of resolving the game, heading in Turner's clearance from a powerful shot from Koopmeiners.
Berhalter gave his team rhythm to the meter in the field to Giovanni Reyna and Wright, who closed the gap, after a great action by Pulisic, on the right, in the 76th minute.
The party was animated, because the Americans were achieved above. They wanted to make their dream come true. But that dream was dashed just five minutes later. A sensational Blind crossed long from the left so that, on the fly and in the 81st minute, he connected with the left-footed Dumfries, closing the game and sealing a sensational personal performance.
Game four of the 2022 FIFA World Cup round of 16 will feature two teams that have never met before, as England and Senegal seek a place in the quarterfinals in Qatar.
African Cup of Nations champions Senegal began their campaign with a loss to the Netherlands, but edged past Qatar and edged past Ecuador to finish second in Group A in impressive fashion.
England remain unbeaten, thrashing Iran and Wales on either side of a tough 0-0 draw with the USA as the Three Lions comfortably won Group B.

Seoul, South Korea CNN
Baby fair season is here once again in South Korea. Hectic, noisy affairs conducted in cavernous conference rooms where hundreds of vendors try to sell parents-to-be everything they could possibly want for their new bundle of joy, and many other things they never knew they needed.
But this is a declining business, and the customer base is dwindling.
South Korea recently broke its own record for the world's lowest fertility rate. Figures released in November showed the average number of children a South Korean woman will have in her lifetime dropped to just 0.79.
That is well below the 2.1 needed to maintain a stable population and low even compared to other developed countries where the rate is falling, such as the United States (1.6) and Japan, which recorded its own rate at 1.3. lowest recorded.
And it spells trouble for a country with an aging population facing a looming shortage of workers to support its pension system.
The problem is often blamed on economic factors that have prevented young people from having families (high real estate prices, the cost of education, and increased financial anxiety), but it has turned out to be beyond the ability of successive governments to fix it, regardless of how much money is spent. in that
Critics say it is a sign that the problems go beyond the economy and that a change of approach is needed. Whether the government is listening is another matter.
During a visit to a kindergarten in September, South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol admitted that more than $200 billion has been spent trying to increase the population in the past 16 years.
However, since he took office in May, his administration has come up with few ideas to solve the problem other than continuing in a similar vein: establishing a committee to discuss the issue and pledging even more financial support for newborns. The monthly allowance for parents with babies up to 1 year old will increase from the current 300,000 won to 700,000 won ($230 to $540) in 2023 and to 1 million Korean won ($770) by 2024, according to Yoon's management.
Public skepticism that Yoon has a better grip on the issue than his predecessors has only been bolstered by the president's sometimes clumsy messaging.
During his visit to the nursery, Yoon expressed surprise that babies and toddlers were not being cared for at home and seemed to suggest that it was common for 6-month-old babies to be able to walk, prompting criticism that he was out of touch. control. touch (the average age for babies to walk is more like 12 months).
Many experts believe that the current money-wasting approach is too one-dimensional and that instead what is needed is ongoing support throughout the child's life.
Browsing the booths at a recent baby fair was Kim Min-jeong, whose second child is due this month. She brushed aside the government's promise of more funding, saying: "They've changed the names and merged the allocations, but for parents like us, there are no more benefits."
The problem she faces, she said, is that she has not been able to work since her first child was born, as she and her husband cannot afford private child care.
Government-funded daycare centers are free, but a handful of scandals in recent years involving caregivers beating babies have put off many parents. While the cases were minimal, they were well publicized and the CCTV footage was emotional.
Also standing in the way of prospective parents are a number of issues that are more social than economic in nature and likely to endure no matter how much money is spent.
Among them are what might be called the unwritten rules for parenthood.
While having a baby is highly expected of married couples in South Korea, society still disapproves of single parents. IVF treatment is not offered to single women, official hospital figures show.
“We still have a very puritanical approach to single mothers,” said law professor Cho Hee-kyoung, who writes a newspaper column on social issues.
“It's like they did something wrong by getting pregnant out of wedlock… Why does it necessarily have to be inside a marriage to be able to raise a child?”
Meanwhile, couples in non-traditional unions also face discrimination; South Korea does not recognize same-sex marriage, and regulations make it difficult for unmarried couples to adopt.
Lee Jin-song, who has written books on the trend of young people choosing not to marry or have a baby, said policies to increase the birth rate must go beyond the traditional idea of marriage between one man and one woman. . woman.
“I have thought about how heterocentric and normalcy-focused the discussion is in the traditional sense of marriage…it excludes people with disabilities, illnesses or reproductive ill health,” Lee said.
Lee pointed to a common joke that in South Korea, "if you're not dating at 25, you'll turn into a crane, which means if you're single you become non-human."
She said society considers her, and others like her, selfish for not conforming to traditional expectations of marriage and children, "neglecting their duties to society just for the sake of their happiness."
Lee highlighted the pressures of bearing children on women in a slowly evolving patriarchal society. “Marriage, childbirth and childcare require too much sacrifice for women in a patriarchal society, especially during the last decade. So, they are starting to explore the possibility of being able to live well without getting married.”
Professor Cho agreed, saying there is a persistent social expectation that the father sacrifices for the company and the mother supports the family, even if she also works.
“I know many couples where the women earn more money than the men, but when they come home, it is the women who have to do the housework, take care of the children and provide emotional support to the husband.”
Meanwhile, husbands who would like to be more involved in raising children find that the business culture in South Korea doesn't always allow for that.
While parental leave has been increased on paper, few feel comfortable taking it in full.
Back at the baby fair, Kim's husband, Park Kyung-su, said he hopes to help with their second child, but “there is no special understanding or treatment at work for having a small child. I can use my free time, but I feel uncomfortable using it because I want good feedback at work."
There is a widespread fear that workers who are promoted are rarely the ones who put family first.
Lee Se-eun, who has two children ages 3 and 5, said she would appreciate more help from her husband, but he rarely makes it home on time.
“It would be good for companies to recognize employees with babies, for example, to exclude them from dinners or nights out,” he said.
In South Korea, work doesn't end when the office closes for the day. Rather, there is a culture of "team building" after hours, which is frowned upon to miss out on.
Lee used to work at a brokerage firm before launching her own company, but she hasn't worked in seven years and feels she had no choice in continuing her career because she didn't want to put her children in childcare.
“Raising a child is something that is very valuable, meaningful and very good from a personal point of view, but sometimes it seems that it is not valued in society,” Lee said.

Brazil's World Cup round of 16 clash with South Korea on Monday promises to be an emotional occasion for everyone associated with the Seleção.

Pelé helped Brazil to three World Cup successes and is revered by many as the greatest player in the game.
The 82-year-old remains an iconic figure in Brazilian soccer, and the team will no doubt have him in mind when they take on South Korea at Estadio 974 on Monday.
Presumably current talisman Neymar will be even more desperate to get into the match, with tributes to Pele expected from players and fans alike.
The Paris Saint-Germain star injured his ankle on matchday one and sat out the rest of the group stage, with Brazil managing to top their section despite a loss to Cameroon on Friday.
Brazil have always held out hope that Neymar could make it to the round of 16, and his father said in an interview earlier in the week that he would "return to his best" in time for the final, assuming the five-time winners did. . that far.
It would appear that Neymar has a chance to show up on Monday, and captain Thiago Silva suggested he was not out of the question.
“It depends a lot on training,” he said. “It looks like there will be a little more testing on the field, I don't know if he will put on his boots.
“Only from that moment on can we convey something more concrete to you, but until then I cannot get ahead of the doctor about this situation.
“[The injury] You have to try it, to see how the ankle is, if it can hold up or not, if it's going to hurt a little. You will have pain, that is part of it, I have had this type of injury.
“However, if everything goes according to plan, the hope is that it will be available. But I'll leave that to Tite and the doctor.
Brazil will be without Gabriel Jesus and Alex Telles, both ruled out for the remainder of the tournament, making Neymar's potential return all the more important, along with the continued high level of performance from stars like Richarlison and Vinicius Jr.
However, they will be firm favorites having progressed in each of their last seven World Cup round of 16 matches, last being knocked out at this stage in 1990 against Argentina.
Similarly, South Korea have not played a knockout game in the tournament since 2010, with their only win (not including penalties) after the group stage coming as co-hosts in 2002 when they beat Italy in the round of 16.
But coach Tite insists that Brazil, who beat South Korea 5-1 in their last head-to-head in June, will not be complacent.
He said: “Brazil lost to Cameroon; Portugal lost to South Korea; France lost to Tunisia; Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia. I think the results speak for themselves.
“I think these are very strong, very tough matches. I don't think we can think that some previous situation makes it easy.
“We have to be very careful. We were very careful with the game against Cameroon. We were. We cannot say that it is easier and we have an advantage. We can't say that."
Similarly, Hwang Hee-chan, scorer of the decisive goal for South Korea in the dramatic 2-1 win over Portugal that brought them to the expense of Uruguay and Ghana, is adamant that the Taeguk Warriors are not in the round of 16. end just to compose the numbers.
"The fact that we play against Brazil does not mean that we will be happy to be there in the round of 16," he said. “Our goal is to win and give our people something to be happy about. We are not only happy to be here. We want to play well and win for our fans”.Players to watch Brazil: Raphinha
With Kim one of South Korea's biggest dangers, Raphinha will want to be firing on all cylinders to keep the left-back busy and as deep as possible.
But on top of that, Brazil's injury woes could result in a somewhat improvised back line. It would appear that 39-year-old Dani Alves or centre-back Eder Militao will start at right-back, and they will be keen for some support, particularly as Son Heung-min also operates from the left as he initially did against Portugal.South Korea: Kim Jin-su
One of South Korea's main attack routes in this tournament has been down the left flank, with quality deliveries from Kim Jin-su a real feature.
Only three defenders have registered more crosses in open play than their 14, while Joao Cancelo (six) is the only full-back to have completed more than Kim (five). Cho Gue-sung has already proven to be an air threat in Qatar, and they will need to deploy all possible forces against the Selecao.Brazil vs South Korea betting tip and prediction
