Morocco sent their hordes of passionate fans into raptures by stunning Belgium and can follow up by beating Canada as well.

The Atlas Lions just need a point to progress from Group F but may now be eyeing top spot, as they only trail Croatia on goal difference at the summit.

Walid Regragui’s side are 21/20 to prevail here and that is our first Canada vs Morocco prediction.

Canada Odds

Canada have brought energy and enthusiasm with them to Qatar but a lack of experience at this level and a shortage of tactical nous has caught them out.

Alphonso Davies made amends for a missed penalty in their 1-0 loss to Belgium when netting after just two minutes versus Croatia.

However, the 2018 runners-up hit back with a vengeance to win 4-1 and consign the Canucks to an early exit.

English head coach John Herdman had courted controversy before that match by telling his players to make life uncomfortable for their opponents in industrial language.

Croatia boss Zlatko Dalic later told his counterpart he has “to learn some things” after failing to hang around for a post-game handshake.

Herdman admitted: “I could have been a little more composed. That is my learning. I will take that on the chin.”

His behaviour backed up the view that a Canadian outfit which is developing nicely wasn’t quite ready for the biggest of stages.

The Reds will again give it their all, but Canada vs Morocco odds.

Morocco Odds

After grinding out a goalless stalemate with Croatia, Morocco turned this group on its head by beating Belgium 2-0.

Monir El Kajoui was called upon to make some solid saves before Sofiane Boufal fired just wide with a fine effort for the Atlas Lions.

Abdelhamid Sabiri’s 73rd-minute free-kick cross then evaded everybody and crept in and Zakaria Aboukhlel added a superb second in stoppage time following great work from Hakim Ziyech.

Having reached the knockout stage just once in five attempts, Morocco are now on the brink of progressing, but Regragui refused to get carried away.

“We haven’t qualified yet and I am not happy with four points, but we have matched two of the best teams in the world,” said the manager.

“We can still do better, we can still improve – the more we play together the better we will get. We are a difficult team to beat.”

Moroccan fans dominated the crowd at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha and Regragui added: “Seeing supporters coming from all four corners of the world to support your team, you feel those family ties.”

Their presence should be a key factor again and can help to unsettle opponents new to this level.

Chelsea winger Ziyech will get chances to shine against a fragile Reds defence and 13/2 for him to break the deadlock is another Canada vs Morocco prediction.
