Tip Reasoning

Morocco to win at 1/2 –

Morocco to win 2-1 at 17/2 –

  • Morocco have not lost a competitive game in normal time since the 2018 World Cup
  • South Africa have won just two o their last nine away games
  • Morocco are on a run of nine successive home wins

Morocco look primed to start with a win

Morocco suffered an extra-time defeat to Egypt in the quarter-finals of the 2021 African Cup of Nations, and their form has been a bit patchy since, registering a win, a draw and a defeat.

The loss came at the hands of USA (3-0), but is their only reversal over 90 minutes in 35 matches since October 2019.

Indeed, quite staggeringly Vahid Halilhodžić’s only competitive defeats since taking charge have come through penalty shoot outs, with The Atlas Lions last losing in normal time at the 2018 World Cup to Portugal.

South Africa desperate to end dreadful run

South Africa are without a win in three games, with their most recent fixture seeing them suffer a 5-0 mauling at the hands of world champions France, while they have also been beaten by Ghana.

Both those defeats came away from home, and Hugo Broos’ side have in fact won just two of their last nine on the road, losing to Sudan, Lesotho and Nigeria in the process.

On top of that, Bafana Bafana traditionally struggle against Morocco, who they have not beaten in five meetings since 2002, losing their most recent meeting 1-0 at the 2019 AFCON.

I predict that Morocco will win this game, but South Africa do seem to have a goal in them, so 2-1 is my correct score prediction.
