Before Betting On Qatar vs Canada
This looks to be a big game for both Canada and Qatar when it comes to their preparations for the 2022 World Cup later this year. There is likely to be more pressure on Qatar in November, as they will have the added pressure of hosting the competition. Meanwhile, Canada’s aim will be to continue to build their squad with their home World Cup creeping into sight in four years time.
The Canadian’s come into this fixture in solid enough form, as they have won two of their previous four fixtures. However, they will need to bounce back after suffering defeat in their previous fixture at the hands of Honduras. Canada’s latest victory as picked up against Curacao back in June, as Alphonso Davies scored twice, and further goals were added by Steven Vitoria and Lucas Cavallini.
Qatar have played a range of different fixtures as they build up to hosting the World Cup in just under two months time. That includes a fixture against Serie A giants Lazio back in July, as the sides played out a 0-0 draw. However, the size of their challenge later this year was evident in their most recent fixture, as they were beaten 3-0 by Croatia’s U23s. Qatar come into this fixture without a win in two, while they have picked up just one victory in their previous six matches.
