Morocco vs South Africa prediction
Morocco pipped Zambia 1-0 on the final day of Group F matches to go top of the group with 2 wins and a draw. The Atlas Lions are one of the pre-tournament favorites and although they haven’t quite lit up their group but they still did enough to get the job done in the group and will now be looking to build on that in this knockout round.
South Africa have looked far from convincing in this AFCON. They bounced back after losing the opener to Mali with a huge 4-0 win against Namibia in their second group match. They however had flat tires in the final group game against Tunisia which ended goalless but was enough to get them the ticket to this round of 16. They have their work cut out against the top-ranked team in Africa.
Despite the misgivings about Morocco, they are still unbeaten and have grown in stature as the tournament progressed. We expect their momentum and concentration levels to be elevated the deeper they progress in this tournament. Although a cagey affair is expected we are backing Morocco to edge this with a win as our main Morocco vs South Africa prediction.
