Canada v Morocco – World Cup Group F: How they are doing, injuries and predictions as the Atlas Lions look to qualify

CANADA head into their final group match against Morocco after being knocked out of the World Cup.

The Canadians impressed enormously in their opening game against Belgium without converting their chances.

But in the second game, a Croatian midfield led by Luka Modric proved too much for them, meaning they will fly home early.

Morocco meanwhile know they only need a draw to qualify, having beaten Belgium to move towards a qualifying spot.

The Atlas Lions are yet to concede and hope to reach the knockout stages for the first time since 1986.

SunSport takes a look at what to expect from Canada vs Morocco, including our result prediction.


How are you?

Canada: A missed Alphonso Davies penalty cost them dearly in a 1-0 defeat by Belgium, where they far outplayed their more famous opponents.

Talisman Davies partially redeemed himself with a goal in the first minute of the second game against Croatia, but it wasn’t enough to prevent a crushing 4-1 defeat.

Morocco: One of the tournament’s worst games for the neutrals was the 0-0 draw with Croatia, which admittedly gave them a platform to build on.

And then in the second game, the Atlas Lions’ free-kick routines outwitted Thibaut Courtois to secure a famous 2-0 win.

Any injuries to worry about?

Canada: John Herdman’s side has impeccable health for this one.

Morocco: All eyes will be on goalkeeper Yassine Bounou, who sang the national anthem against Belgium and was injured before kick-off.

who to watch

Canada: Alphonso Davies has had a mixed tournament so far, but the Bayern Munich star is still the man who can make the Canadians tick.

Morocco: The defense deserves credit for keeping Croatia and Belgium out with ease, but Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech is the man who can win a game in a moment.


Morocco qualifies with a draw regardless of the result in the other game.

If Morocco loses by less than three goals, they qualify if Belgium fails against Croatia.

Morocco will also qualify if they lose to Canada, but Croatia loses to Belgium by two goals.

Canada is out and can’t finish better than third in the group.

What is the head to head?

Canada and Morocco have played three times, with two Moroccan wins and one draw.

All three games were international friendlies.

The last time the two sides met was in 2016 when the Moroccans won 4-0 in Marrakech.


Canada: 27.10

Draw: 23.10

Morocco: 11.10
