Morocco vs South Africa -nAt the Stade Moulay Abdallah on Thursday, Morocco and South Africa begin their respective 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaigns with a heavyweight encounter. Following Zimbabwe’s disqualification by FIFA, the teams were placed in Group K of the qualifiers, where they will compete alongside Liberia for two automatic berths at next year’s continental event.

Morocco was humiliated 3-0 by the United States of America in their most recent trip on Wednesday at the TQL Stadium. Vahid Halilhodzic’s troops were left red-faced as Brenden Aaronson, Timothy Weah, and Haji Wright scored in a one-sided match in Cincinnati.
For the third time in the last two years, Atlas Lions will be looking for a quick comeback after being trounced.

Morocco vs South Africa – Betting Analysis

The next opponent is a squad that hasn’t won any of the last four meetings between the teams after winning the first two meetings. Thursday’s hosts, who haven’t been beaten at home since losing 3-2 to Gabon in 2019, will have the wind at their backs. France thrashed South Africa 5-0 in their most recent encounter on March 29, when the two sides met.

Hugo Broos’s team was routed at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy by a rout orchestrated by Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Wissam Ben Yedder, and Matteo Guendouzi. Bafana Bafana have now gone three games without a win while also failing to score a goal in that period.

Having missed out on the last AFCON, the visitors on Thursday will need to turn things around quickly on both ends if they hope to return. Both clubs are loaded offensively, so we can expect a game that will be open and end-to-end, with plenty of chances for both teams. However, we are also backing the home team to get the job done and secure a hard-fought victory.
