Morocco vs Congo Free CAF World Cup Qualifiers Playoffs
There has been 1-1 draw twice in previous three meetings between Morocco and Congo DR. The other game was a 1-0 win for Congo in the first meeting way back in January 2017. In the three previous meetings, there were red cards in two games. Here are our best free predictions and tips for this fourth encounter between Morocco and Congo.
Morocco to win @ 1/2 (1.50)
Morocco should win this game based on the current form of these teams. The hosts salvaged a point in the first leg and were lucky to survive a spot kick. While they slipped to a late draw in the 76th minute, we expect nothing short of a win for Morocco in this second leg of the CAF World Cup Qualifiers playoffs. Morocco is currently the second-best team in Africa after Senegal. They recently climbed four places in the latest FIFA rankings while Congo slipped two places on the FIFA list to be in 66th place.
A strong performance in the AFCON over a month ago is another reason to back the hosts in this fourth home encounter with Congo DR. The visitors weren’t good enough hence didn’t make it to the 2022 AFCON.
Under 2.5 @ 29/50 (1.58)
Our second tip is fewer than three goals to be scored at full-time. We don’t expect the visitors to sit back and absorb pressure from a highly offensive pressure. Congo DR, like Egypt, is another highly defensive African football outfit and that should be a big challenge for Moroccans. We expect a low-scoreline on matchday.

Morocco vs Congo: Game Preview, Tips and Analysis
A 1-1 draw in the first leg of the CAF WCQ should set the stage for another epic encounter between Morocco and Congo. In Africa, Morocco is the second-best team. However, a dismal performance in the first leg that saw the hosts share the spoils with Congo DR in a 1-1 draw wasn’t convincing enough. With that, the question everyone is asking ahead of this fixture is will Congo recover from a last-minute Ngonda Muzinga sent-off in the 88th minute in the first leg? Ngonda picked a second yellow card hence will not participate in this second leg.
On the flipside, home advantage should be crucial for Morocco in this second leg. The Atlas Lions settled for the spoils in 76th minute despite leading from the 12th minute in the first leg. This fixture will, however, be different as both teams look to break the deadlock. The home advantage is with Morocco and winning this game boils down to whether they will defend and not concede a late goal like in the first leg.
