Morocco vs Benin Match Preview
Morocco have seen some very narrow clashes as they bagged nine points in three Group D outings but they’ll surely be bursting with confidence as they open the Africa Cup of Nations 8th Finals meeting Benin at Al Salam Stadium on Friday evening.
Atlas Lions have scored just three goals and kept clean sheets on all of the occasions as they beat Namibia (1-0), Ivory Coast (1-0), and South Africa (1-0), despite more excitement than the results would suggest. They have been creating more chances but will surely be happy with the points, as Herve Renard looks to build on the team spirits towards late in the tournament.
Benin have been a positive surprise in Egypt and they’ve kept their own in draws against Ghana (2-2), Guinea-Bissau (0-0), and Cameroon (0-0) to proceed as 3rd placed from Group F with better pointing over Angola and goal difference than Kenya.
Squirrels have thus made it through to the knockout stages for the first time ever and will be very motivated to build on such performances. However, they obviously lack the rivals’ depth in quality and the fact this is their fourth outing in ten days could mean fatigue – as we don’t see them making their way to the Quarter-finals.
We’ll thus back Morocco to prove their worth and make their way past Benin with a confident display, as we stick with a win to Nil at 11/10 with Netbet in hope they can turn another narrow occasion in the making their way.
We thus don’t feel we’re in for many goals in total and this has us going for Under 2.5 Goals FT as well, which comes at 1/2 with Surebet247 and feels like buying money for old rope – as Benin come off two goalless draws and Morocco regularly enjoy such clashes lately.
