  • Competition: World Cup Qualifiers, First Stage

  • Venue: Stade des Martyrs (Kinshasa)

Congo are trying to secure its first World Cup appearance, but to be fair, the odds of that happening are really low. Besides not appearing in the WC, Congo rarely appeared in the AFCON, doing so just once in the last 12 tournaments. In this World Cup Qualifiers, Congo played only one match and lost 4:2 against Zambia and will now face the best team in Group E. The additional problem is that the Red Devils will not play this game at home but on a neutral pitch in DR Congo.

On the other hand, Morocco are one of the better teams in the CAF Region. Their biggest success was in the previous World Cup in Qatar when they finished 4th, almost reaching the Finals. Still, in the AFCON, they weren't as good, reaching only the 1/8 Finals despite being one of the title favorites. In this World Cup Qualifiers, Morocco were handed a pretty easy group with Zambia, Niger, Tanzania, and Congo, and it would be a miracle if they failed to come out of the group. At this moment, they are 1st with two wins in two rounds.

Congo vs Morocco pick: Under 2.5 goals

Congo are in poor form, winning just once in the last ten matches. Even though they had some success offensively, that was only against weaker teams. They weren't as successful against teams close to Marocco's level, like Mali or Cameroon. So, scoring against Morocco, which had three clean sheets in the last five matches, will surely be a challenge.

Even though Morocco are the favorite and definitely a better team, we do not expect an easy win. They had problems offensively, scoring only five goals in the last six games in all competitions. Because of somewhat poor offense and good defense, Morocco were under 2.5 goals in five of those six matches.

Throughout history, these teams have met five times, and we have never seen a game with three or more goals. Those teams were all a long time ago, but considering all the above, we expect another low-scoring game.

Congo team news

According to African Media, Congo will not play this home game at Olimpic Stadium in Brazzaville, where they usually play, since the stadium doesn't meet CAF standards. Instead, they will play the game at Stade des Martyrs, just across the Congo River in Kinshasa, in DR Congo. Still, there are some speculations that Congo might decide not to show up for the upcoming game as a sign of a protest against FIFA for not allowing them to play in Brazzaville.

Morocco team news

A key midfielder, Sofyan Amrabat, is unavailable for this match due to a two-game ban after receiving a red card in the AFCON Playoffs against South Africa. He already missed the game against Zambia. 

Coach Walid Regragui was the hero all over Marocco in 2022, but now many people (in Marocco) want to see him replaced. Even some former national team player Adel Tarabt criticized the coach, saying he didn't like their playing style in AFCON. Many football pundits suggest Marocco might move away from Regragui after the Congo game.
