Canada will welcome Panama to BMO Field in Toronto for a World Cup 2022 qualifying match on Thursday.
A 3-0 victory over El Salvador represents their only third-round win so far, and while draws with the USA and Mexico can be regarded as positive results, taking only two points from clashes with Honduras and Jamaica has not exactly boosted confidence in the ranks. Canada are unbeaten in 20 home matches since a 3-0 defeat to Mexico back in March 2016, and they have scored in each of their last 14 on familiar occasions.
Panama claimed a 1-0 win over USA on matchday five. Before that, they suffered a 1-0 defeat to El Salvador a few days prior. Only two goals conceded represents the best defensive record in CONCACAF Qualifying so far for Panama. However, Panama have failed to score more than a goal in its last three clashes, after bagging a combined of eleven strikes in the previous five meetings.
In recent years Canada hasn't had the best games when traveling to Panama City for a match, but they won three of the four games they hosted against Panama in history. With home advantage, expect Canada to return to winning ways by a narrow margin.
