Morocco looks to extend Qatar trip vs Canada

Morocco looks to extend Qatar trip vs Canada

Morocco meets Canada in a match that will dictate whether they can stay longer in Qatar, or they will have to go home already. Canada now plays their last match in the World Cup as they were eliminated already. Morocco just needs a draw in order to advance in the knockout stage, and a defeat get things more complicated. Although this meeting is more important for Morocco, Canada still wants to end their campaign in a good note. Their meeting will be on December 1, 2022, at 11:00 PM (GMT+8).

These two teams already met three times, but none of which were from an official game as all of these meetings are in the friendlies. In those three matches, Morocco won twice while the other one ended in draw. They last met in 2016, where Morocco had a dominating 4-0 win against Canada, producing over 2.5 goals in their three meetings. In the World Cup, Canada lost to their last five games. Morocco on the other hand, are undefeated in their last three games, but just one win in their last five. Despite their early exit, Canada does not want to exit winless, so they will still try to win in this game.

Morocco is currently with four points after keeping a clean sheet in their first two matches in the group stage. In order to advance to the Round of 16, this teams needs a simple draw to advance, but a win is better. A win could give them a good momentum as they enter the knockout stage. However, although they still have a chance if they were beaten here, things might get more complicated. Their future in the competition depends on the result of the match between Belgium and Croatia if they suffered loss. Coming into this game, they are eyeing to continue their good momentum.

Yassine Bounou feels unwell during their match against Belgium, so he is doubtful in this game. Noussair Mazraoui on the other hand might return in this game.

Canada wants to end their campaign with a win

World Cup: Canada

Canada is actually a young and energetic team, but the, being unexperienced is what killed their hopes in the competition. Although they are already eliminated in the contest, they still want to end their campaign in a good note. Since they are still young and inexperienced, a win in this game could give them the confidence in the future. They actually never picked up a point in the World Cup. On their last fixture, they are lucky enough to be able to finally score a one goal on that match.

Since their squad are more of an inexperience members, they failed to be as impactful as they want.

Prediction:

Morocco (2.5)
Odds: 0.98
