Morocco vs Gabon Prediction
Vahid Halilhodzic’s men had a fairly mediocre Africa Cup of Nations campaign earlier in the summer. They were booted from the competition by Benin in the round of sixteen, albeit only in the penalty shootout. The hosts have been unbeaten in their last four games since and will be welcoming Gabon into their midst this week on the back of a 1-1 draw against Libya.
Their counterparts, on the other hand, failed to make it to Egypt after they finished third in the qualifiers behind both Mali and Burundi. Despite being favorites to land a ticket to the Cup of Nations, Gabon failed to keep up their initial momentum and were without a taste of success in their last two games.
Nevertheless, the visitors have already returned to winning ways, and have seen off Burkina Faso with a 1-0 victory. However, that alone does not guarantee the visitors even a glimmer of hope this week.
The hosts have been a confident bunch in the comforts of their home. They have not been at the losing end in any of their last three games here. And, have scored thrice whilst conceding just one less. Additionally, the home team have been faring well against this foe in their previous meetings and have come out on top in three of their previous five clashes.
Taking into account that Gabon’s last win on Moroccan soil came almost a decade ago, Morocco are the outright favorites to secure the bragging rights in this one.
Furthermore, the visitors have been standing their ground in their recent trips on the road, and have found the back of the net in each of their last four outings. Considering that two out of their previous three head to head fixtures here also saw goals down either end, count on both teams to have their names on the scoresheet at the last blast of the whistle.
