Finland vs Canada Predictions & Tips


Finland can repeat their 2019 Final win over Canada.

While Canada have recorded a couple of big wins recently they have underwhelmed.

Finland, meanwhile, have been consistent thanks to the best defence in the competition.

They know how to grind out low-scoring wins and we could see that from them here.

  • Finland are 8-1 in the competition so far
  • Finland beat Canada during the group stage
  • Finland have conceded just 11 goals in the competition
  • Finland & Canada were 2 of the lowest scoring teams to make the knockout stage
  • Finland & Canada produced -5.5 Total Goals in the group stage game
  • -5.5 Total Goals have been scored in 7 of Finland’s 9 games so far

Finland Form


Finland are one win away from successfully defending their crown after making it to the Final.

They made a solid start by edging the USA 2-1, but fell to a surprise shootout defeat to Kazakhstan in their next outing.

Their response was emphatic though as they smashed Norway 5-2 before cruising to a 3-0 win over Italy.

A 2-1 win over Germany was then followed up with a 3-2 overtime win over Latvia as they made it 4 wins on the bounce.

Finland then capped off a successful group campaign with a shootout victory over Canada.

They made hard work of the quarter-final clash with the Czech Republic, winning with the only goal of the game.

And they were pushed all the way by Germany in the semi-finals, but a 2-1 win saw them through.

Canada Form


Canada have seemingly saved their best until it really mattered en route to the Final.

They opened with a 2-0 defeat to Latvia before suffering a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of the United States.

A 3-1 loss to Germany then added to their misery, but the Canadians rescued themselves with 4-2 wins over Norway and Kazakhstan.

A 7-1 smashing of Italy made it 3-in-a-row before their momentum stalled with a shootout loss to Finland.

They had done enough to advance though and have raised their game considerably in the knockout stage.

First they knocked out the outright favourites, ROC (Russia), with a 2-1 overtime win in the quarter-finals.

They then avenged their group stage mauling at the hands of the Americans by scoring twice in the third period to seal a 4-2 semi-final win.
