The 8th finals of the African Cup of Nations begin this Friday. Morocco is opposed to Benin. Both teams want to advance to the quarter-finals.
Morocco vs Benin Soccer Prediction of the Day
Present in a highly competitive D group, Morocco has figured well to clinch the top of the ranking. The Atlas Lions have shown pragmatism to dominate, on the same score each time, Namibia, Ivory Coast and South Africa (1-0). Under the leadership of his coach Hervé Renard, Africa champion with Zambia in 2012 and Ivory Coast in 2015, Morocco is a serious candidate for the title.
Qualified for its first African Cup of Nations since 2010, Benin has hardly qualified for knockout matches. 3rd in group F with 3 points on the clock, the team won one of the last tickets for the 8th finals. Striker Steve Mounié’s partners drew 1-1 against Ghana (2-2), Guinea-Bissau (0-0) and Cameroon (0-0).
The staff for Morocco vs Benin
Morocco coach Hervé Renard should renew his confidence in the elements that beat the Ivory Coast in the group phase. Thus, the leader and captain Benatia should be supported by his usual lieutenants Hakimi, Saïss, Dirar, Boussoufa, Ziyech and Belhanda. The leading end of the attack should be occupied by Leganes striker Youssef En Nesyri.
Benin includes many players evolving or having evolved in France. Goalkeeper Farnolle (ex Le Havre), defenders Imorou (Caen), Adenon (Amiens) and Verdon (ex Sochaux), Adeoti (Auxerre) and Sessegnon (ex PSG) and attackers Poté (ex Nice) and Mounié ( ex Montpellier) are essential elements of the selection.
