Morocco who are also set for Qatar 2022, is the first African team that the Stars and Stripes has played during Berhalter’s tenure.
The match will mark the second time in just over six months that the hosts will play in Cincinnati, following last November’s 2-0 win over rivals Mexico in World Cup qualifying schedule.

On the other side, Morocco was dominant during their World Cup qualifying run, going unbeaten with a record of 7 wins and only one loss, while scoring 25 goals and conceding only thrice in total. The visitors are drawn into Group F at the World Cup along with Belgium, Canada and Croatia.

USA vs Morocco Prediction
USMNT has been impressive in the WC qualifiers as they secured 7 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses thereby earning the third available World Cup promotion spot. Their last game was against Costa Rica where they lost by 2 goals to nil. The hosts also come here on the back of 5 straight home wins in a row.
Meanwhile, Morocco was dominant during their World Cup qualifying run, going unbeaten with a record of 7 wins. But they couldn’t secure an away win since their last 3 on-road fixtures.
Morocco has won twice of their last 2 h2hs which happened a decade ago, but now both these sides are strong but due to the home support, we feel that USMNT will win here.
