Both teams have been in a good shape in their recent outings which shows the game will be nothing short of entertainment.
Morocco have have won 6 of the 8 games and lost 2. They are on fine goal scoring form and scored at least 2 goals in 5 of the last 8 games. They have lost just once in their last 5 games on home soil, they have won 3 and drawn 1.

Morocco vs Congo: Head to Head

Morocco vs Congo: Prediction
This game will no doubt give fans what they desire, giving the good run of form between the two sides it is hard to predict an outright winner or favourite.
But the main talking point lies on their goal scoring abilities. I expect the game to witness not more than 3 goals. Morocco being at home have the edge over the visitors but the game could still go either way in the end.
Best Bet: under 2.5 goals.
Risky bet: Morocco wins first half.
