Morocco vs Slovakia Preview and Predictions

Morocco vs Slovakia
International Friendly
Date: Monday, 4 June 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de Geneve, Carouge.

One of the most promising African countries Morocco are in the phase of final preparations for the World Cup. After having a spectacular streak of four wins in the last five matches across competitions, fans of this team have every reason to be optimistic, even though Spain and Portugal are in the same group. Morocco will face Slovakia on Monday night in Geneva and bookies made them warm favorites for the win at 2.50 price.

In case you missed that competition earlier this year, Morocco have won the African Nations Championship by beating Nigeria 4-0 in the finals. They are without a doubt one of the best defensive teams I saw from Africa in the last decade, conceding only two goals in the entire year. Coach Herve Renard has truly done wonders so far as the head manager.

As for their opposition, Slovakia have failed to earn a ticket to Russia, but haven’t been far from that neither. Their team has undergone a lot of changes as well and the last four appearances were more than successful. Slovaks managed to beat Norway, UAE, Thailand and draw against Netherlands (a couple of days ago). Appearance of their best player Marek Hamsik is still not confirmed.

Morocco vs Slovakia: Head-to-head

  • These two teams have played only one head to head duel in the past.
  • It was a friendly match as well, all the way back in 1994.
  • Morocco celebrated narrow 2-1 victory.

Morocco vs Slovakia: Predictions

Despite the amazing shape of the African side, I feel that the draw is the most realistic full time outcome here. Slovaks managed to hold the home ground against Netherlands, which just shows they are not an easy target.

When it comes to the goals market, considering how good Morocco is in the back, Under 2.5 FT at 1.60 makes a lot of sense as well.
