Pacific FC took points off HFX Wanderers in their last four encounters. Will our algorithm predict another Pacific result or will the Wanderers get a rare win?

These teams have met 20 times previously in all competitions. Pacific holds an edge in head-to-head matches, with a record of 9W-6D-5L against HFX. This weekend’s match will be the teams’ second encounter of the season.

Pacific claimed a 1-0 home win in the reverse fixture. A first-half penalty from Ayman Sellouf was enough for Pacific on the day.

Despite claiming the win, HFX Wanderers posted 13 shots, but only two hit the target. Pacific, on the other hand, tallied four shots, with all four hitting the target. Meanwhile, Wanderers kept 60% of possession in the match.

The last three head-to-head meetings between these clubs finished with under 2.5 goals. HFX are not a strong scoring team and are bottom of the eight-team Canadian Premier League table.

Wanderers have not won a match this season, picking up just two points from seven games. They have been outscored 13-6 by opponents. No team in the Canadian Premier League has scored fewer goals than HFX.

Pacific are fourth in the standings having played eight matches. They picked up 12 points from 24 on offer, scoring seven goals and conceding four times.

Pacific are the league’s second-lowest scoring team behind HFX. However, defence is Pacific’s strength. They have the best defence in the league, having allowed only four goals.

HFX Wanderers are led in goals by Riley Ferrazzo. The Canadian midfielder has two goals. Four additional players have tallied one goal each.

Moroccan forward Sellouf, who scored from the penalty spot in the reverse fixture, leads Pacific in scoring with two goals.

Pacific manager James Merriman plays a 4-3-3 attacking formation. Sellouf typically starts on the left wing. Dario Zanatta and Josh Heard usually play in attack too.

HFX Wanderers coach Patrice Gheisar favours a 4-2-3-1. So far, playing with a double pivot hasn’t helped Wanderers keep out goals.

Canadian forward Thiago Coimbra scored in Wanderers’ recent 2-2 draw against Atletico Ottawa. However, Coimbra will miss the match after being sent off late in that match.

HFX Wanderers failed to win their last four games against Pacific and that run should continue. Our algorithm forecasts a 1-1 draw between the Canadian Premier League rivals. It will be their fourth straight meeting to end with under 2.5 goals scored.
