World Cup 2022 Croatia vs. Japan start time, betting odds, lines:


Japan will try to slay another giant when they face Croatia on Monday in a Round of 16 clash at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Doha, Qatar. Japan finished atop a group that included former World Cup champions Spain and Germany, and they knocked off both teams by 2-1 scores. They topped the Spaniards on Thursday to win Group E. Croatia finished second in Group F, but they are 2018 World Cup runner-ups after losing to France in that year’s final. They held Belgium, the No. 2 team in the world, to a 0-0 draw on Thursday to secure advancement. The Croats have a veteran team spearheaded by Luka Modric and Ivan Perisic that is after one more chance at glory. Meanwhile, Japan are in the knockout round for the fourth time but have never been past the Round of 16.
