Home » 08/8: Daily Predictions: France meets Morocco with quarters in sight

Football Predictions

France will be hoping that they can qualify for the quarterfinals of the FIFA Womens World Cup for the fourth time running when they meet Morocco in the last 16.

A fourth-place finish in 2011, their second-ever appearance, represents Les Bleues best run to date. This present campaign began with a frustrating goalless draw with Jamaica before they ran out 2-1 winners over Brazil to wrestle control of Group F and they consolidated top spot with an entertaining 6-3 win over Panama.

Morocco on the other hand has made history of their own after making it to the knockout phase of the tournament in their first time of asking. They were given a thumping by Germany in their first game of the tournament but produced a pair of crucial 1-0 wins to make it to the knockout stage.

H2H/Stats

The only meeting to date between the two saw France run out as emphatic 6-0 winners in a friendly staged in 2008.

Team News

Moroccan national team head coach Reynald Pedros was the manager of the Olympique Lyon women’s team, so he know very well most of the French squad very well. After progressing to the knockout phase, he can draw inspiration from the country’s men’s team which did wonders in last summer’s FIFA World Cup staged in Qatar.

But Pedros comes against Herve Renard who has a knack of winning tournament having had an impressive outing in Africa. Both set of coaches have no major injury worries and should parade fresh legs for the tie after days of rest.

France XI: Magnin, Perisset, Lakrar, Almeida, Cascarino, Becho, Garrec, Mateo, Geyoro, Bacha, Diani

Morocco XI: Khadija Errmichi, El Haj, El Chad, ZinaZined Redouani, Diki, Nakkach, Chebbak, Tagnaout, Jraidi, Lahmari

Verdict

Morocco might have been a darling to many in the tournament with the progress they’ve made so far but they are coming to a business start of the tournament and France won’t be looking at them as just any other team.
