Morocco vs DR Congo Prediction
Morocco played well in the AFCON earlier this year and will be looking to continue their excellent form. The visitors have been preparing for this game for a long time as they did not participate in the AFCON and should be able to hold their own here.
Congo had lost 2 of their past 4 overall fixtures, and they had remained winless in 8 of their past 12 overall games.
On the contrary, the Moroccans have remained unbeaten in 42 of their past 43 games. They have also won the last 3 games at home with 2 cleansheets maintaining on the way.
By the looks of things, if Morocco could lead at the first -leg or even a draw, they could certainly gain dominance in this second-leg.
