our main tip:
1st Half Un. 1.5 Goals

Morocco vs Portugal 10.12.2022

Morocco have proven themselves as the giant-killers of this World Cup. They topped Group F with 7 points ahead of fancied Croatia and Belgium. They saved their best for the round-of-16 when they squared off with European giants Spain, putting in a resilient shift to keep La Roja at bay through regulation and extra time before their keeper Bono put up a heroic performance in the post-match penalties that they clinched 3-0. The Atlas Lions are now just the fourth African team to make the quarterfinal of this global showpiece but they will be hoping to go one better than their predecessors by being the first to get to the semifinals if they can overcome this latest hurdle

Portugal came into this tournament as one of the dark horses to win it all but their performance up to this stage confirms that they really should be considered as one of the favorites to win it all. After topping Group G, they too put up a stellar display in the round of 16, hitting Switzerland for six with a 5-star performance from their little-known forward 21-year-old Gonzalo Ramos who coach Santos elected to start ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo. That proved to be a masterstroke as he bagged a terrific hat-trick to set them up to a thrilling 6-1 victory. That may just have earned him the trust of the coach and another starting slot in the quarters.

Despite the avalanche of goals witnessed in the round-of-16 (the most since 1986), we expect those goals to dry up a bit as the competition gets stiffer. Morocco have been the best defensive outfit of the remaining 8 teams. They have only conceded a single goal in this tournament. We expect them to stick to their defensive principles and that means we are likely to have a game with limited clear-cut chances, particularly, to start. As such we are predicting Under 1.5 1st half goal.
