The October International Games always delight with the level of football. Morocco and Senegal will meet in one of the most interesting friendlies on Friday. The game will take place on October 9 at the “Moulay Abdullah Sports Complex” stadium at 21:00 Moscow time. Our portal has prepared for you a forecast for this fight
In recent years, the Moroccan national team has returned to the elite of African football, as evidenced by the team’s entry to the last World Cup. True, the Moroccans failed to prove themselves at the African Cup of Nations, the team was eliminated already at the stage of the first round of the playoffs, which led to a change of coach. Now Morocco is led by experienced Halilhodjic, who managed to improve the team’s results. The Moroccans are distinguished, first of all, by their reliable defense, having not conceded a single goal in the first two qualifying matches. And in attack there is someone to score in Morocco, which includes scorers from the leading clubs in the Premier League and La Liga.
The Senegal national team has been looking quite powerful lately, with a large number of high-class players who have shown themselves in the strongest European championships. Good results also do not bypass this team, which reached the final in the last African Cup of Nations. In qualifying for the next such tournament in 2021, Senegal has already won 2 victories and is the undisputed leader of its group. At this training camp, Cisse will not be able to count on several leaders of the national team, including the main star, Mane, which may affect the level of the game. True, the Senegalese have a margin of safety and a good young replacement for all leaders.
Statistics and numbers
The last match between these teams ended in the victory of Senegal with a score of 0: 1.
Morocco has not lost four games in a row, having played only once in a draw.
Only once was able to defeat Senegal on the road against the Moroccan national team, it happened in May 2012.
Senegal has the highest FIFA rankings among African teams, 20.
Moroccans are ranked 5th in the CAF conference ranking and 43rd in the overall FIFA ranking.
Both teams are now not in the best condition, because they have not played games this year yet. Senegal in this meeting will not be able to count on its several key players in different positions, but the Moroccans will be in their optimal composition. And the home field advantage should help Morocco get the result in this game. I recommend choosing a home win here for a very good odds.
Prediction: Victory for Morocco
