Canada vs Morocco preview

Morocco are in excellent form heading into the vital fixture.

They are now nine games without defeat, having won six and drawn three in that time.

Furthermore, they have kept clean sheets in both of their World Cup matches so far, having drawn with Croatia and beaten Belgium.

They are hoping to reaach the last-16 for the first time since 1986 and a draw is enough to ensure they go through.

Canada, meanwhile, are looking to avoid a third straight loss and ensure they leave Qatar with at least one point.

Canada vs Morocco tips and predictions

Canada were beaten 4-1 by Croatia last time out while Morocco put two past Belgium so the African nation are expected to find a way through their opponents given the importance of this game. Backing Morocco to score more than 1.5 goals at odds of 6/5 (2.20) looks an appealing bet, then.
