Canada vs Morocco Match Info

2022 FIFA World Cup — Group Stage
Canada (0-0-2) vs. Morocco (1-1-0)
Date: Thursday, Dec. 1, 2022
Time: 10 a.m. ET
Venue: Al Thumama Stadium — Doha, Qatar

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is in full swing with more action slated for Thursday, Dec.1. Group F will be in action that day as Canada looks to end its tournament run on a high note against Morocco.

Canada is playing for pride at this point after a 4-1 loss to Croatia on Sunday eliminated the former from the World Cup. Meanwhile, Morocco shocked the world over the weekend with a 2-0 win over Belgium, made possible by both goals being scored late into the match.

Can Canada be victorious in its final matchup of the tournament? Or will Morocco move one step closer to locking down the group with a victory?

Canada vs Morocco Prediction & Pick

It's been six years since these countries met on the pitch in a game that was a doozy for the Canadians. Morocco won that 2016 encounter by a final score of 4-0 as Hakim Ziyech had a pair of goals for his country.

Even though a lot has changed since then, I don't like Canada's chances of winning here. The Canadians have lost three of their last five matches and just allowed Croatia to score four times on an astounding 10 shots on goal. There are very few positives to take away from a performance like that.

Meanwhile, Morocco held that same Croatian team to zero goals before beating the same Belgium team that defeated Canada to open the event. Unless there's a total collapse, Morocco should end the group stage with a win.

Final Score Prediction: Morocco: 2 | Canada: 1

Canada vs Morocco Best Bet

Though the flashes of promise have been there, Canada just hasn't looked that good at the 2022 World Cup. Morocco is the clear-cut better team here with a lot more experience and is likely on its way to the Round of 16.

There's decent value to be had with an outright Moroccan win, so take Morocco at +110 on the moneyline.

Bet: Morocco ML (+110)
