Zambia vs Morocco Betting Tips - BTTS

While a point will be enough for Morocco to secure qualification for the last 16 of the AFCON, Zambia know they must win if they are to guarantee their place in the knockout phase.

Morocco come into Wednesday's crunch fixture currently top of Group F after picking up four points from their first two matches against Tanzania (3:0) and DR Congo (1:1). Walid Regragui´s men are now unbeaten in their last six matches 

Zambia enters this final fixture in Group F currently third in the section after picking up back-to-back 1-1 draws against DR Congo and Tanzania. Avram Grant´s side now know they must match DR Congo´s result to ensure their place in the next round. 

Coming into this fixture, Zambia have seen BTTS in each of their last five matches and that selection could offer the most value on Wednesday. While Morocco are favourites, the Atlas Lions showed some vulnerabilities in their draw with DR Congo, and I fancy a dangerous Zambian side to make this another competitive and entertaining AFCON contest.

Given the tight nature of the section, we can expect both teams to go for the points and so, chances at both ends should present themselves. With that in mind, I´m going for the BTTS selection at generous odds in what promises to be a fascinating finale to Group F.
