Morocco vs France tips and predictions
On Wednesday, France will face Morocco in David vs. Goliath, having entered the stage after beating England on Saturday. In fact, they were second-best on the night, relying on Harry Kane to miss a penalty to win the game, but they still showed their class by scoring two crucial goals.
As for Morocco, no one expected them to reach this stage of the World Cup and beat Belgium, Spain and Portugal in the semi-finals - and there's no way to say they didn't deserve it.
The power of morocco spirit
The Moroccan showed incredible intensity, both physically and emotionally. Emotionally, the level will be hard to lift after two of the most storied victories in World Cup history over Spain and Portugal respectively. We've often seen teams struggle after accomplishing something historic, and to do it again would be extraordinary.
Then there is tiredness. So far, Morocco is wounded and moving forward. Noussair Mazraoui and Nayef Aguerd both missed the win against Portugal and could be back, but will still be ill.
The heroic Romances were exhausted after yet another masterclass at the centre-back and they would be much weaker without him. Then you have Walid Cheddira, who will miss this game due to suspension. Not to mention all the other players who were battered and injured during the game.
The power of france spirit
France has such good quality throughout, especially on the offensive end, they will easily win the game. While a lot of people think it could be close, I think it's too much for Morocco and they will lose a few goals. The France -1 is +155 on some books, represents excellent value at this price point and is my best choice for gaming. Personally I would also bet France -2 at +440 but not sure.
