Morocco vs DR Congo prediction

Morocco vs DR Congo team news

Morocco

As expected, Morocco have started this edition of AFCON with a convincing win over Tanzania. After all, they are not just one of the main favourites to win Group F, but also one of the top candidates to go all the way. In any case, Morocco is a quality team that reached WC semi-finals, so their fans are rightfully expecting big things here.

Predicted Lineup: Bounou – Hakimi, Aguerd, Saiss, Mazraoui – Amrabat, Ziyech, Ounahi, Harit, Adli – En-Nesyri

DR Congo

Despite the fact that they've shot 25 times at goal against Zambia, DR Congo only got a point from that game and they were even behind for a short while. In an case, their next opponent is a much stronger one, but the team is healthy and they have the quality to put up a fight against Morocco.

Predicted Lineup: M'Pasi – Masuaku, Kiranga, Mbemba, Kalulu – Kakuta, Moutoussamy, Pickel, Wissa – Bongonda, Bakambu

Confirmed Morocco vs DR Congo lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch: Youssef En-Nesyri

Despite the fact that he's still just 26 years old, En-Nesyri already has 67 appearances for Morocco, which puts him only behind the team's captain Romain Saiss. En-Nesyri is also the team's second-best scorer behind Ziyech by one goal and he already scored once at AFCON 2023, which are all reasons why he's our player to watch in this match.
