Canada vs Norway Predictions & Tips

Canada’s cover struggles are tipped to continue against Norway.

While the Canadians are unbeaten, they have produced some underwhelming results in the tournament so far.

  • Canada have covered in just 1 of their first 3 games
  • Norway are yet to lose a game by more than 3 goals
  • The Under has cashed in 2 of Canada’s first 3 games
  • Each of the last 6 meetings have produced under 6.5 goals

Head To Head

  • Canada lead the series 14-1 since 2006
  • Norway won 3-2 when the two teams last met in May 2023

Canada Form

Canada continue to boast a perfect record as they look to win back-to-back Ice Hockey World Championships.

The Canadians, who beat Germany 5-2 in the final a year ago, have begun their defence of the crown with three consecutive victories.

They opened up with a 4-2 win over Great Britain, and followed that up with a 5-1 demolition of Denmark.

Canada then made it three wins in a row on Tuesday, but they made hard work of their meeting with Austria despite being big favourites heading into the game.

The Canadians needed an overtime goal to finally see off the stubborn Austrians, snatching a 7-6 victory.

Norway Form

Norway enter this matchup with the defending champions still seeking their first win of the tournament.

The Norwegians won just two games a year ago as they fended of relegation to Division 1A, and they are facing another fight to stay in the top tier this time around.

The opened the tournament with a 5-2 defeat to Switzerland, and suffered a 6-3 loss at the hands of the Czech Republic.

Norway’s knack for losing by three goals then continued in their third outing as they were beaten 4-1 by Finland.

The Norwegians ended that trend in game four, but they once again fell to defeat as they were beaten 2-0 by Denmark.

Verdict

Canada are the better team and are expected to come away with the victory.

However, their results continue to underwhelm so it would not be a shock to see Norway cover as an underdog.
