South Africa vs Morocco Predictions and Top Betting Tips

South Africa and Morocco have both qualified already but this match will decide who wins the group. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

This group ended up with only three teams since Zimbabwe are no longer competing. Both sides here have already qualified for the next stage of the competition and we expect a more open game. We shouldn't see the same unbelievable defensive efforts from Morocco. They have been unbelievable to date but this time, we expect BTTS against the strong South Africans.

Match Result Prediction: Draw

Most of the games between these two national teams are close and we saw that last year when Morocco got a minimal win. This time, however, we do not expect them to win. The draw is highly possible and mostly because of Morocco's incredible defense. They almost never concede goals. We expect both sides to score one goal here and the game to end in a draw.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

As mentioned above, this sounds like the perfect scoreline for this game. We do not expect more than 1-1 here. South Africa are known fort their good attack and they always concede at least one goal too. When we compare the South Africa vs Morocco line ups, the visitors have one of the three best squads in Africa.

South Africa vs Morocco Team Previews

South Africa Preview

South Africa really had a bright future but the last few years have not been as good as they could have been. They got lucky that this group ended up being with only three teams. The team has serious problems in defense and unless they make the necessary improvements, their chances in the next stage are minimal.

Morocco Preview

After the last World Cup, the whole world loves the Moroccan national team. They are absolutely exceptional in defense and this is what led them so close to the top. They are the current highest-ranked national team in Africa and we really cannot say anything bad about them. The only aspect that needs improving is the attack.
