Morocco vs Togo
African Cup of Nation 2017 – Group C
Date: Friday, 20th, January 2017
Kick-off: 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade d’Oyem.
Morocco will continue the battle to survive the AFCON group stages as they play against Togo at Stade d’Oyem on Friday night.
Morocco were unlucky against the Congolese side as they were beaten 1-0 despite having the huge chunk of possession during the game. They are currently on the foot of the table with 0 points behind Ivory Coast and Togo. They need nothing but a win in this game to get back on track.
Meanwhile, the Togolese side produced a strong display against a star studded Ivory Coast in the opening game of the group. They were able to hold off the Ivorians to stalemate as the two teams couldn’t find the back of the net. They need to avoid defeat in this game to keep hopes of getting through to the knockout stage alive.
Morocco: Predicted Line-up (4-4-2)

Togo: Predicted Line-up (4-4-2)

Morocco vs Togo: Prediction
The game will surely be tough for both teams as they are both in need of a win. Morocco is expected to attack from kick-off, but we expect Togo to hold them off as they did to the Ivorians.
We will be expecting much of the actions in the second half and possibly a winning goal for the Togolese side.
