No First half winner @ 9/10 (1.90)
Only one defeat against Morocco in past eight meetings should make Gabon a formidable opponent in this fixture. Gabon also won the last encounter 3-2, albeit without a clean sheet. Four points for Gabon in two AFCON 2022 games and six points for Morocco in as many fixtures further make this game a difficult one. It is the battle for top spot in Group C and a draw at the break is a plausible outcome.
Morocco to win @ 3/4 (1.75)
Morocco should get their second victory against Gabon in nine meetings. The Moroccans have been playing some exciting football since the kick-off of 2022 AFCON. They have won their first two Group C games with a clean sheet and have 7 clean sheet victories in the last eight matches. On the other hand, Gabon has been plagued by inconsistencies due to a struggling defence. It is why we are giving Morocco an edge in this game.

Gabon vs Morocco AFCON 2022 Preview: Team News and Lineups
This fixture will decide which side goes to the top of the table, so a tough duel is what we expect on matchday. Gabon vs Morocco will play their third game in the ongoing 2022 AFCON at Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium in Yaounde, Cameroon. Morocco has six points, three goals and none conceded coming to this game. On the other hand, Gabon has four points, two goals and one goal conceded in two games.
Gabon and Morocco have met 8 times. In those encounters, Gabon was the better side, winning 4 and losing only once to Morocco. Three draws were recorded in those previous meetings. Only two of those games were friendly fixtures. The first friendly game ended 1-1 way back in March 2014. The last meeting was also a friendly game back in October 2019, a match that Gabon won 3-2 away from home in Morocco’s capital Rabat. These stats show that Gabon has always been the dominant side in this game. However, with Aubameyang set to miss the AFCON 2022 due to COVID, we expect a different game when these teams lock horns for the ninth time.
