Canada vs USA
World Cup Qualification CONCACAF
Date: Sunday, 30 January 2022
Kick-off at 20:05 UK / 21:05 CET
Venue: Tim Hortons Field.
For a club that has not qualified for the World Cup in over twenty five years, Canada has been by far the best team in the qualifiers. Barring an incredible turnaround of events, they should have no problems making it to Qatar.
The USA is in the midst of a good run of games. Despite losing just once in the final round, they should continue performing, to retain their direct spot in the group stages of the WC.
The Maple Leafs in their most recent game, secured a 0-2 against Honduras, away from home. This was the club’s 4th win in the campaign on the bounce.
Undefeated in the Octagonal with five wins and four draws, the national team is on top of the table, a point clear of their opponents for Sunday.
USMNT were last seen grinding out a 1-0 win against El Salvador at home. The result marked the 3rd win for the nation in five matches.
Also registering a draw and a loss in that period, they are now second in the final round of the qualifiers, four points clear of the inter confederation play-offs spot.
Canada vs USA Head-to-head
- Stars and Stripes have suffered just one loss in their last fifteen meetings.
- The BTTS wager materialised just once in their previous nine clashes.
- A maximum of two goals were scored in all of those matches.
- The teams have met on just four occasions on Canadian soil since the turn of the century, with both teams claiming a win each.
Canada vs USA Prediction
While six of Canada’s fixtures in this round involved a score line of two or fewer goals, just two of their opponents’ matches in the final round have witnessed three or more goals. With their h2h record also overwhelmingly standing by the outcome, expect a low scoring contest.
While the USA has gotten the better of this foe on more occasions throughout history, things have been different for them north of their border in Canada. The Canucks with momentum on their side are likely to retain the top position in the table at the end of this fixture.
