Morocco vs Uzbekistan
International – Friendly
Date: Tuesday, 27 March 2018
Kick-Off at 21:00 UK
Venue: Stade Mohamed V (Casablanca)
Morocco have been in a fine form and they host Uzbekistan for their Friendly clash at Stade Mohamed V in Casablanca on Tuesday, just days after their Friday’s clash against Serbia in Torino, as Herve Renard’s men look to build on the African Nations Championship title and the consistency ahead of the World Cup.
Atlas Lions have thus seen a great campaign in front of the home crowd and we have seen a thrashing 4-0 win over Nigeria in the Final, which extended a 13-game unbeaten streak across competitions. While it’s questionable if they can extend it against Serbia, we do believe they will be very motivated to outclass struggling Uzbeki rivals, with another convincing display in the final third – after netting three or more goals in three of their last five outings.
Uzbekistan have been nowhere near as confident and they come into the match against Senegal on Friday with a three-game winless streak behind them, as they suffered narrow losses to China and the United Arab Emirates and held the Korea Republic to a goalless draw at home in the process. They’ve proven themselves as a tough defensive side but have had much more troubles impressing in the attacking third.
