Tip Reasoning

  • Canada became the first CONCACAF nation to qualify for the World Cup last time out.
  • Panama cannot qualify for the World Cup regardless of the result here.
  • Both of Canada’s away wins in this qualification cycle come by a 2-0 scoreline.
  • Canada are unbeaten in ten of the 11 historical H2H meetings (W4, D6, L1).

Plucky Panama will try to dig in

A chastising 5-1 defeat to the USA last time out ended Panama’s hopes of qualifying for consecutive World Cup finals for the first time in their history after going out in the group stage of the 2018 edition.

That result means they can finish just one point shy of the promotion spots, though the incentive to do that is small at best. Home form has kept Panama in the hunt for so long as they are actually yet to lose on home soil in this campaign (W3, D3) though this is arguably their toughest task yet.

Given that Panama won just one of the 11 historical meetings between these nations, it seems nonsensical that they have never lost a match against Canada on home soil (W1, D3). However, a 4-1 defeat in the reverse points to a big gulf in class between these sides.

A victory lap for the Maple Leaves

A new generation of Canadian fans will get to see their nation compete at the World Cup finals after their sole appearance back in 1986, though there is still a big incentive to finish with a win and thus guarantee top spot in this qualification group.

While there is nothing major riding on the result of this game, we predict that the buoyant momentum of Canada can carry them to victory at a great price. Watch out for Jonathan David and Alphonso Davies, who scored and assisted for each other in the reverse!

For smaller stakes, we are sticking with a 2-0 away win, the same scoreline as in both of Canada’s away successes during this cycle.
