βœ” 1×2 Prediction: Canada vs Morocco

The encounter between these two enthusiastic teams promises to be competitive. The outcome of the match is not yet decided, and anything seems possible. We foresee a close match ending in a draw with some goals.

βœ” Exact Score Prediction: Canada vs Morocco

In this 2022 World Cup match, our prediction for the exact score is a balanced face-off that will see both teams shutting each other down for the entire length of an exciting match between these two squads.

Victory for Morocco

If either of the teams is going to take home the win, this option seems the most likely. Nevertheless, we don’t see Morocco winning this match. If Morocco does manage to win, it won’t be by a wide margin, 0-1 or 1-2.


This is the outcome we favour for this match. The two teams are the outsiders of the group and will have to go all out if they want to qualify. However, it is far from certain that one team will manage to triumph over the other. A score of 1-1 or 2-2 seems entirely possible.

Victory for Canada

Canada could take home the win, though this would be a bit of a surprise considering that this is only its second World Cup appearance. However, Morocco seems slightly better on paper. Despite this, there should be scope for them to seek out a result, and even a narrow win, 1-0 or 2-1.

βœ” Half-time/Full-time prediction: Draw 1st half; Draw 2nd half

We foresee a balanced and close match. We see a first half in which both teams observe one another before the match really opens up in the second. However, that probably won’t be enough for Morocco or Canada to walk away victorious.

βœ” Scorer Predictions: Canada vs Morocco

This match on the third day of the group stage of the 2022 World Cup could allow some well-known Ligue 1 players to show their worth. As such, Sofiane Boufal on the Moroccan side and IkΓ© Ugbo on the Canadian side could make a difference, just like Tajon Buchanan, the winger of the North-American team.

βœ” Double Chance Scoring predictions: S. Boufal / T. Buchanan

As we suggested above, this could well be an opportunity to see the Angers player Sofiane Boufal and Tajon Buchanan score. Thus, we offer you this double change scoring prediction.

πŸ“„ Match Analysis: Canada – Morocco

Pre-bet Analysis

Canada qualified for its first World Cup in 36 years. For this, it first finished at the top of its qualification group in the first round of the CONCACAF zone eliminations with four wins in as many matches. In the second round, the Canadians knocked out Haiti in a two-leg match. Finally, the Canadian team finished first in the CONCACAF group in the 3rd round of eliminations, in front of Mexico, the USA and Costa Rica.

Morocco has done brilliantly. Impressively, the Moroccans won all six of their group matches against Guinea-Bissau, Guinea and Sudan. In the playoffs, they easily dominated the Democratic Republic of Congo in a two-leg match (5-2 over both legs).

Team Form

Canada reached the semi-finals of the Gold Cup 2021 (the equivalent of the Euro for the CONCACAF), hosted by the USA last summer, at which point the Canadian eleven were knocked out by Mexico. Recently, after already having qualified for the Qatar World Cup, the Canadian team encountered some difficulty, notably losing to Costa Rica and Panama.

Morocco is in good shape. With only one defeat since September 2021, in the Quarter Final of the African Cup of Nations against Egypt, Morocco is currently one of the most prolific nations. Thanks to its 33 goals scored in the last six outings, its opponents are on alert.
