Morocco vs Comoros
African Cup of Nations
Date: 14 January 2022, Friday
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Omnisport Ahmadou Ahidjo (Yaounde).

Morocco are set to take on AFCON debutants Comoros four days after a tough opening round win over Ghana.

The team led by Vahid Halilhodzic certainly belong to a group of the main favorites for the title in Cameroon.

The Moroccans have had an extraordinary campaign in the African World Cup Qualifications, managing a perfect record of six wins in six games against three African Cup of Nations contestants.

Morocco proved strength by scoring 20 and conceding just 1 goal in these six affairs against Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, and Sudan.

Bosnian manager Vahild Halilhodzic gave up on some of the team’s main stars to get adequate chemistry in the dressing room and it will be very interesting to see whether such an approach will bring him positive results.

Morocco were knocked out of the previous African Cup of Nations in the last 16 phase (on penalties to Benin) despite winning all three group-stage games without conceding at all in the process.

Unlike Morocco who will play in the continental playoffs for the World Cup in Qatar 2022, Comoros did not even make it beyond the first qualifying phase in Africa.

They were eliminated by Togo 1-3 on aggregate. The small island country made their debut at the African Cup of Nations on Monday when they faced Gabon.

Morocco vs Comoros Head-to-head

  • These two outfits met each other just twice in recent history.
  • They were drawn to the same group for the 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifications.
  • Morocco claimed four points from two meetings with Comoros, courtesy of a 1-0 win at home and a 2-2 draw on the road.

Morocco vs Comoros Prediction

Morocco are one of the toughest teams to break down on the continent. They have only conceded one goal in six World Cup qualifiers against three decent teams. Comoros are African Cup of Nations debutants and we can’t expect miracles from them here.

The Moroccans are massive favorites and we will back them to win by at least three goals difference at the odds of 2.15. Braver punters can try with the correct score bet, backing Morocco to win 3-0 at the 7.00 odds.
