Tip Reasoning

After a disappointing loss last time out, the Estonians will be looking to pick themselves up when they face a World Cup-bound Morocco on home soil. Realistically these fixtures are somewhat meaningless for the hosts, who won’t be in Russia this summer, though they will still want to get competitive. As far as recent form goes, the hosts don’t have too much to shout about; they’ve won just one of their last six matches.

Despite falling behind against Slovakia, Morocco come into this fixture having won last time out, while they’re now unbeaten in no less than 17 matches. A draw against Ukraine and that win against Slovakia on Monday night has set the Moroccans nicely on their way. Another win here and Hervé Renard’s men will be going to Russia in good spirits.

Morocco may have needed to come from behind against Slovakia last time out, but the fact that they were a goal down in the first place was somewhat unjust. Renard’s men started the game brightly, played a positive brand of football and were on top throughout. From an end-product point of view, it took the Moroccans a while to get going, though they deservedly found their feet in front of goal eventually. With such a positive display under their belts, Saturday’s visitors should fancy their chances of securing another victory.

It wasn’t just the fact that they won which will have pleased Hervé Renard. The result was nice, though the performance was the main thing. They controlled the tempo of the game, looked a threat from wide areas and, crucially, had a creative spark. With a player like Ajax’s tricky Hakim Ziyech in their ranks, Morocco are always going to offer a threat. Against a weak Estonia side, such a player should find it easy to fashion scoring opportunities.

In terms of recent form, Estonia haven’t done too badly, even if they have won just one of their last six. However, the hosts haven’t faced anyone with any real quality for some time. What’s more, the Estonians have come off second best in most of their recent home matches against half-decent teams, as home losses against Belgium, Bosnia and Greece suggest. Interestingly, Saturday’s hosts conceded twice against each of those teams.

With the visitors, who’ve scored at least twice in four of their last five matches, showing themselves to be a strong attacking unit last time out, against a team who’re probably a fair bit better than Estonia, backing ‘Morocco to Score Over 1.5 Goals’, at a potentially lenient price, is hard to resist.
