Estonia vs Morocco
Date: Saturday, 9 June 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: A. Le Coq Arena, Tallinn.
Morocco are looking for a strong finish to the set of three friendlies ahead of the World Cup in Russia on Saturday when they take on Estonia at A. Le Coq Arena in Tallinn. The Lions of the Atlas head into this in a phenomenal spell of form having won 13 and drawn only 3 of last 16 matches across competitions. They had some serious tests in the process playing the likes of Serbia (1-2 win in March), Ukraine (a goalless draw in May) and Slovakia (2-1 win in June).
There are no doubts the African World Cup hopefuls will be massive favourites against a low-profile Eastern European rival here. Estonia featured the new edition of the Baltic Cup in recent weeks and they had a semi-success there. Blueshirts opened the competition with the 2-0 victory over Lithuania, but they fell 1-0 to latter champions Latvia in the second round.

This will be the first ever head to head outing between Estonia and Morocco.
Estonia vs Morocco: Predictions
Morocco topped their WC qualifying group without conceding a single goal in six matches of the final round. They have a rock-solid defensive line with Mehdi Benatia and Romain Saiss and the clash with Estonia will give them a nice chance to keep another clean sheet given the hosts have been struggling for goals badly of late.
Martin Reim’s men failed to score more than once in last four internationals even though they played the likes of Armenia, Georgia, Lithuania and Latvia along the way. It clearly makes Morocco to keep a clean sheet the top betting option set at the 1.66 odds here.
Herve Renard’s men also have a much more talented squad moving forward with the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Nordin Amrabat and Khalid Boutaib all well capable of hurting Estonia’s defensive line. Morocco to win is a banker bet, but we’ll be brave enough and go with the visitors to win by two or more goals difference at 2.60.
