A good, old-fashioned border battle between the two top sides in CONCACAF.

No, we’re not referring to United States vs. Mexico. El Tri is third in the table, barely able to beat 10-man Jamaica last time out.

Indeed, we are gearing up for Canada vs. United States, No. 1 vs. No. 2. Les Rouges top the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying table and will hope to defend home court in Hamilton, Ontario. The United States, meanwhile, heads north to continue the process of officially putting to bed the disappointment of its 2018 World Cup qualifying failure.

The United States, given its more difficult remaining schedule compared to both Mexico and Canada, needs the points the most. However, both teams are in a great qualifying position, and the two would probably be happy to share the points. Supporters, however, won’t be thinking that way, and both fan bases will be eager for a win against a rival.

Canada vs. USA lineups

Outside of some minor rotation, Canada manager John Herdman isn’t veering from his usual lineup which is without Alphonso Davies, who is recovering from “mild” myocarditis stemming from a bout with COVID-19. Influential midfielder Stephen Eustaquio finally joined the team just before the match after his COVID-19 quarantine in Portugal, but it’s not clear if he’ll play. 

There are changes in midfield with Samuel Piette (ankle) and veteran Atiba Hutchinson replaced by Mark-Anthony Kaye and Jonathan Osorio. Kamal Miller steps in for Scott Kennedy at left center back and Tajon Buchanan moves into a forward role with Junior Hoilett making way.

Canada starting lineup (3-4-3, left to right): 18-Milan Borjan (GK) — 4-Kamal Miller, 5-Steven Vitoria, 2-Alistair Johnston — 3-Samuel Adekugbe, 14-Mark-Anthony Kaye, 21-Jonathan Osorio, 22-Richie Laryea — 20-Jonathan David, 17-Cyle Larin, 11-Tajon Buchanan.

Canada subs (14): Crepeau, Leutwiler, Cornelius, Henry, Kennedy, Gutierrez, Piette, Hutchinson, Fraser, Eustaquio, Hoilett, Millar, Cavallini, Ugbo

Already without Gio Reyna (hamstring injury), the USA will miss winger Tim Weah, who did not meet vaccine requirements to enter Canada. Manager Gregg Berhalter called the status of goalkeeper Zack Steffen day-to-day due to a reported back issue. Weston McKennie and Sergino Dest were both seen limping at the end of the El Salvador match, but both are in the starting lineup. 

Berhalter’s biggest question will be what to do with the United States attack, which sputtered against El Salvador. Jesus Ferreira got the start at striker against El Salvador but missed two big chances, and he’s replaced by Gyasi Zardes as Ricardo Pepi remains on the bench. Christian Pulisic had a quiet last match, but he’ll have a second crack to shine. Center back Miles Robinson was surprisingly on the bench for El Salvador, but he will partner with Chris Richards who looked shaky at times on Thursday.

USA starting lineup (4-3-3, right to left): 1-Matt Turner (GK) — 2-Sergino Dest, 15-Chris Richards, 12-Miles Robinson, 5-Antonee Robinson — 8-Weston McKennie, 4-Tyler Adams, 6-Yunus Musah — 10-Christian Pulisic, 9-Gyasi Zardes, 11-Brenden Aaronson.

USA subs (12): 19-Sean Johnson (GK), 3-Walker Zimmerman, 21-Reggie Cannon, 22-DeAndre Yedlin, 16-Mark McKenzie, 23-Kellyn Acosta, 14-Cristian Roldan, 17-Luca de la Torre, 13-Jordan Morris, 7-Paul Arriola, 18-Ricardo Pepi, 20-Jesus Ferreira

Canada vs. USMNT betting pick & prediction

Odds courtesy of DraftKings

The betting lines for this match indicate nobody — bookmakers or bettors — have any clue what will happen in this match. The moneylines are almost dead even across the board, the spread is a pick’em, the over/under odds are nearly even, and the both teams to score odds are exactly even.

Bettors will have to look harder for openings in these lines. A draw between these two teams is a likely scenario, with Canada and the United States both producing few scoring opportunities against weaker sides on Thursday, though both looked defensively sound. Canada got a wonder-goal from Jonathan David and an own-goal for its haul, with the U.S. barely skated by thanks to poor finishing and a disjointed flow. Canada is without Alphonso Davies, while United States star Christian Pulisic is struggling for form.

This match has significant pre-match hype, but both teams are in a good qualifying position, and neither will want to give an inch. Either a 0-0 or 1-1 draw looks to be a likely result.

Pick: Draw and under 2.5 goals (+220)

Prediction: Canada 0, United States 0

  • Moneyline: Canada +180 / Draw +190 / USA +170
  • Spread (Asian Handicap): Canada pick’em (-105) / USA pick’em (-115)
  • O/U 2.5 total goals: Over +145 / Under -190
  • Both teams to score: Yes +100 / No -130
