Morocco will face Croatia in the opening game of Group F today. Although we anticipate a close and competitive 90 minutes between the two countries. The team from Europe enters this morning’s match as the undisputed betting favorite.
Croatia and Morocco have only ever played one friendly match, which Croatia won on penalties and concluded with a score of 2-2. We are betting on Croatia to win their first group game this week and earn all three points since they have won their last five international games. Four of which were played overseas. Although Morocco hasn’t been in horrible shape either. They haven’t played against a team of this caliber before. We anticipate it will show by the conclusion of the 90 minutes.
We anticipate a close and difficult match between these two countries but have backed Croatia to claim a slim 1-0 victory. The favorites have won three of their last five games by a score of 1-0. All three of Croatia’s victories have come away from home.
You can understand why we are betting on Croatia to win by a score of 1-0. While Morocco doesn’t tend to give up many goals, they also don’t score many, with their most recent match against Paraguay ending in a scoreless draw.
Vahid Halihodzic’s position as Morocco’s head coach could not be preserved despite his team’s sixth-consecutive World Cup qualification and their run to the 2021 African Cup of Nations quarterfinals. In order to replace Halihodzic and bring in Walid Regragui ahead of the World Cup.
The Moroccan football federation had to fire Halihodzic due to his problems with some of the team’s biggest stars. Including Hakim Ziyech, who missed a year of international competition while Halihodzic was the coach.
