Ryan Giggs' men fought hard but came away beaten in an even contest in Croatia as Ivan Perisic forced an own-goal and scored what proved to be the winner.
Hungary top the table despite being level with Croatia on six points due to their superior head-to-head record, having beaten them 2-1 at home in March.

Betting & Match Odds
Wales are very slight favourites to win this match with Bet365, priced at 17/10. Hungary are 19/10, while a draw is available at 11/5.
Wales face a second tough away trip in a matter of days as they travel to Budapest to face Group E leaders Hungary after a disheartening defeat against Croatia.
Hungary are level with Croatia on six points but lead on head-to-head after a 2-1 win in March when they came back from behind to cause an upset.
Every side has lost at least once in probably the most open qualifying group in the competition, but two defeats on the bounce would still be damaging to Giggs' side's hopes.
Wales are the second seed in the group and Giggs admits they need to get something from their next game.
"It is [important to get at least a point against Hungary]. We're up against in with regards to playing one less game," Giggs said.
"It's also two tough away games on the spin but we have to deal with that, we have to get on with it.
"But it is important we get something from the game, although there's 15 more points to be won so we're aware of that as well, but it would be nice after these two tough games to come away with something."
There are usually plenty of goals when these two sides meet, with 3.75 per game being scored on average in Hungary, and the hosts have kept just one clean sheet in their last 10 meetings with Wales.
The Dragons have a good record against Hungary, winning four of their last five games against them, but come into the match struggling for form away from home, having lost four of their last five such games.
Meanwhile, Hungary have won their last three games and have triumphed in four in a row at home, scoring twice in each victory.
