Morocco’s push for a 16th AFCON appearance will get underway in this qualifier opener against South Africa.
The North Africans head into this tie on the back of a 3-0 loss to USA in an international friendly. They will look to get back to winning ways here to begin their qualifying campaign on a bright note.

For South Africa, they will hope to avert back to back AFCON misses having failed to qualify for the last edition.

The unpredictability of African football makes staking a very exciting experience all round. To help you make the most of your funds, we will be working with odds offered on Gbets and Melbet. (–> Read all about our EXCLUSIVE Melbet bonus terms!)

MOROCCO

The Atlas Lions are yet to register themselves as an AFCON powerhouse. With their only triumph coming in 1976, Morocco have only managed a semi final ticket which came back in 2004.

At the last edition, they got knocked out by North African rivals Egypt at the Quarter Finals.

Having booked a place at next year’s World Cup, a ticket to the AFCON would be a huge icing on the cake for Hakimi and his colleagues. For this to happen, getting all 3 points is this opener could be pivotal.

SOUTH AFRICA

Since clinching the title in 1996, South Africa have only managed 3 Quarter Finals, a 2nd place and a 3rd place finish. This means when it comes to top football nations in Africa, the Bafana Bafana aren’t there yet.

Given their thirst for competitive football, many African teams have made qualifiers more intriguing and less predictable. This is why even though Morocco are a better side than South Africa, we expect Hugo Brood’ men to put up a good fight here.

Looking at their fan base and formidable nature on home turf, getting anything here would be a difficult task for South Africa.
