Egypt vs Morocco
Africa – Africa Cup of Nations
Date: Sunday, 30 January 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Stade d’Olembé.
Egypt have been totally unimpressive so far, despite getting to the Quarters. They have made it this far mostly on account of their defense. Their star players are yet to deliver, and it’s doubtful if the team could keep doing this.
Meanwhile, the Moroccans have been on a roll, and they seem determined to go all the way. They have been finding the back of the net consistently, and quite frankly, they have been one of the very best teams in the tournament based on form.
Going on, they also have a good h2h record against this opponent, and they will also be doubly motivated since a semi final clash awaits against a potential easy rival (Gambia or Cameroon).
Count on Morocco to put a halt to Mohammed Salah and his boys this Sunday.

Egypt vs Morocco Prediction & Analysis
Egypt had to rely on penalties to get through to the Quarters, and so far they have not delivered a single performance from which they could derive confidence. They have a good defense, and that’s pretty much it.
However, it’s a trick that just might not work effectively against the well-oiled machine, that is Morocco.
This team is unbeaten in competitive games in over four years, and even including friendlies they have lost just four times in this period. In fact, they had won 26 of their past 31 games, and in the process had even gone on a 12-match winning streak.
On top of that, they also have a great h2h record against this foe over the years.
For the reasons, expect a win for Morocco this Sunday at the Stade d’Olembe.
