The final matchday of Group F has many possible outcomes and is still very close and difficult to predict.

Morocco, may find things to be fairly straightforward; win or draw, and they advance regardless of what transpires in the other match in the group.

However, if they lose, things do get very tricky because in order for them to advance, Croatia would have to lose by at least two goals or Belgium would have to lose.

If Morocco were to lose by four goals or more and the other group game ended in a draw, they would also be eliminated.

Either way, Morocco just need to get the job done themselves, but would be incredibly unfortunate not to go through having already taken points off both sides vying for a last 16 spot with them.

While the 0-0 draw with the Vatreni was a dull game, they showed off their attacking prowess against Belgium, winning 2-0 thanks to a wonderful late goal from Zakaria Aboukhlal.

Given the calibre of opponents they have defeated, Walid Regragui’s team may have been the best tournament surprise so far.

Canada has also been impressive and appealing, producing numerous opportunities with pace in the wide areas and presence in the front, but sadly for them, their journey is already over.

They suffered a 4-1 loss on Sunday after being ruthlessly dismantled by a talented Croatian team due to their very naive defence and organisational flaws.

It might have been six or seven for Zlatko Dalic’s team as well, but for some shrewd saves from goalkeeper Milan Borjan.

At least they now have a World Cup finals goal to their name; Alphonso Davies, who agonisingly missed a penalty against Belgium in their opening game, was the one who scored at the fifth attempt.

They can look back on that moment and the fact that they had a 30-minute lead over the finalists from 2018, as they focus on 2026.

They missed a penalty and numerous other opportunities to score against a lacklustre Belgian team, which has got them leaving the tournament.

There is no doubt that there are strong foundations in place and a solid young squad available to take forward to the next World Cup, which they will co-host. They will hope not to finish the tournament on zero points again like they did in 1986.

1×2 Betting Odds

Eliminated Canada will play for pride when they are up against Morocco. Their odds stand @ 3.75.

Morocco has all the mathematics going in their favour, but a win the safest thing to do. Their odds stand @ 2.22.

The chances of a stalemate and Canada getting their first point at the World Cup stands @ 3.45.

Total goals over/under

The odds that the total number of goals score will be over 2.5, stands @ 2.2.

While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 1.78.

Canada will likely pose a greater threat to Morocco than Croatia and Belgium did, and the team is hoping to score more goals and at least earn a point.

However, Morocco’s game has a lot on the line, and if they can repeat their group-stage performances, they will qualify for the last 16 of the tournament.
