World Cup 2022 Belgium vs Canada: Predictions

On the first side is Belgium. Finishing 3rd at World Cup 2018 was Belgium’s best performance in World Cup tournaments. After that, the team reached quarter-finals in Euro 2020 and they were 2nd in their group in Nations League, so they can be optimistic ahead of the upcoming World Cup 2022.

On the other side is Canada. The last and only time Canada played in the World Cup was in 1986. Now Canada will appear at the World Cup for the second time in their history, which is a huge result for them, but their chances of getting out of the group are once again very slim.

With this said, Belgium is the obvious favorite of this match. But, could we see any surprise from the Canadian side?
