The Bangkok Post's predictions on matches.

Croatia v Belgium

One team looks set to go home after this match and it's likely to be Belgium who have been unconvincing at Qatar 2022. Croatia returned to form with a 4-1 win against Canada after a scoreless draw with Morocco.

Prediction: Croatia 2-1

Canada v Morocco

Canada are still looking for their first point of the tournament and likely to return home without one as Morocco are in confident mood after their 2-0 win against Belgium.

Prediction: Morocco 2-0

Japan v Spain

Japan shocked Germany 2-1 in their opener but then were stunned by Costa Rica. The Samurai Blue have blown a golden chance and won't get another one.

Prediction: Spain 2-0

Costa Rica v Germany

Germany have to thank Costa Rica for their win against Japan, and the Central Americans' reward from Hansi Flick's side will be a big defeat.

Prediction: Germany 3-0
