Daily Tips

France will be up against Morocco, their former colony country at Al Bayt Stadium in the second match of the 2022 World Cup semi. Despite all the injuries, France have managed to defy the odds while progressing to the last four of this year’s tournament. 

Morocco stunned Portugal 1-0 to reach the final four, while Les Bleus sent a dogged England side home via a 2-1 scoreline to keep their hopes of back-to-back titles alive, and either Argentina or Croatia will await the victors in the showpiece event.

Team news 

France made only a single substitute during their win against England with Kingsley Coman coming in for Ousmane Dembele. Deschamps should have his team complete with no injury concern as it stands. 

For Morocco, Noussair Mazraoui and Nayef Aguerd both missed out on the quarter-final while Romain Saiss somehow managed to soldier through 50 minutes before he was stretchered off.

Walid Cheddira will not feature after collecting a pair of yellow cards in stoppage time.

Hakim Ziyech came off against Portugal with a knock, but that was likely a precautionary measure, so he should still start here.

Romain Saiss had to come off early in the second half of that win because of a hamstring problem which he was carrying previously from the Spain game. 

Match facts 

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 5 of France’s last 6 games in the FIFA World Cup. 

France have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 FIFA World Cup matches. 


France have progressed from 15 of their last 17 knockout stage matches at the

World Cup, last being eliminated in 2014 against Germany in the quarter-finals.

The World Cup has been full of surprises and of course Morocco has made some history, making it to the semis, the first ever African team. Knocking out Portugal, knocking out Spain but now their journey seems to have come to an end. 

With the best defensive record at this year’s tournament, it is understandable why Morocco have made it this far, but with a combination of injuries to key players as well as France’s quality and experience, expect the defending champions to get the win here.
