Surprises aren’t expected in this group, which features two UEFA powerhouses.

Belgium headlines the group out of Pot 1 and is odds-on favorite to finish in the top spot, while Croatia — a 2018 World Cup finalist — was handed another easy draw in the group round. Both those sides are odds-on to advance from the group, with Morocco and Canada looking to play spoiler.

As for our early impressions of this group, let’s dive in.

Group F Odds/World Rankings

 Belgium -160 9th | 2nd
Canada +1300 26th | 38th
Morocco +600 35th | 24th
Croatia +290 14th | 16th

The Favorite: Belgium

This tournament is basically Belgium’s last chance at a major trophy and it should win the group with ease. Croatia doesn’t have the attackers to keep up, while Canada and Morocco don’t have the experience.

The Dark Horse: Canada

Assuming its at full-health, the 1-2 punch of Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David could produce some fireworks here. While certainly not on the same level as Belgium, Canada could trouble Croatia at its best and, as noted by my colleague BJ Cunningham, is superior to Morocco.

Potential Shock Elimination: Croatia

I don’t see Belgium failing to advance, which leaves Croatia as the most prone to an upset. That said, there are signs it could be in trouble. I was unimpressed by Croatia at the Euros and it has an aging roster, which could cause problems in a mid-season tournament.
