Canada Plays for Pride in Its Final World Cup Match

Oh-Canada Nov 30, 2022

It's been thrilling to watch the Canadians proudly plant the Maple Leaf flag on the biggest stage in sports.

After scoring the fastest opening goal of this year's World Cup to go up 1-0, Canada eventually fell by the score of 4-1 to Croatia, which means the team has been mathematically eliminated.  Canada can no longer advance to the next round of 16.

Nonetheless, it's been thrilling to watch the Canadians proudly plant the Maple Leaf flag on the biggest stage in sports. Canada has plenty to be optimistic about going forward and will certainly be more competitive in future World Cups.

And so Thursday's final game in Group F versus Morocco will be one last chance to enjoy the global spotlight and perhaps even depart host nation Qatar on a high note should they manage to pull off the upset and defeat the favoured Moroccans.

Kickoff is at 10 am ET / 7 am PT.

Expert Prediction (powered by Pointspreads):

Spreads.ca lists Morocco at 2.15, making them slightly more than even money to win the match.

Canada is a heavy underdog at 3.60.

The draw is listed at 3.35.

Unfortunately for Canada, Morocco will make it very difficult to score goals. They've held both opponents scoreless in the first two World Cup games, and are on an incredible six-game streak of consecutive shutouts. It's been June of 2022 since any opponent has scored a goal against Morocco.

Meanwhile, Canada scored just one goal in two games, and is probably headed for another goose-egg.

We're proud of our Canadian team, but we have to lean towards Morocco at this price.

Morocco is rated #22 in the World Rankings, which is probably too low.  This is clearly a Top-15 team they way they are currently playing, especially having upset heavily-favoured Belgium.  Canada ranks 41st in the same ratings.

The UNDER 2.5 goals is also worth strong consideration.
