Hot Tip – Morocco to Win to Nil (3/4)

  • Tanzania failed to find the net in three of their last five fixtures.

Player to Watch – Achraf Hakimi

Achraf Hakimi is one of the leading players in his position in world football and the PSG fullback’s rampaging runs down the right flank should be a major feature of Morocco’s gameplan on Wednesday. Hakimi has scored eight times in 68 appearances for his country since making his debut in 2016.
