South Africa faces Morocco in a match from Group D of the Cup of Nations
South Africa faces Morocco in a match from Group D of the Cup of Nations. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Al Salam Stadium in the capital Cairo in our secure long term profit predictions.
South Africa are currently third in the group with 3 points won, but being on par with the 2nd Ivory Coast. Clearly Bafana Bafana still have chances to reach the knockout phase, but it also depends on what they are going to do in their final game in the group.
After starting their campaign with a defeat against Ivory Coast, South Africa redeemed themselves and achieved a difficult, but very important 1-0 win over Namibia. The only goal in the game was scored in the 68th minute, when Bongani Zungu put the ball in the net after an assist from Percy Tau.
Now Bafana Bafana are getting ready for a very important clash against the leader in the group Morocco.
How we said, Morocco are leaders in the group with a perfect record of 6 poins, won after the first two rounds. The Atlas Lions achieved two 1-0 wins in their first two matches, beating Namibia and Ivory Coast. Some might say that this was not really the most impressive scoreline Morocco could have achieved, but the facts are clear – they won twice and this is the most important thing.
Against Ivory Coast Morocco achieved a win, thanks to the winning goal of Youssef En-Nesyri in the middle of the first half. The striker used an assist from Nordin Amrabat and put the ball in the net behind Ivory Coast’s goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo. This win proved that the Atlas Lions will be one of the contenders for the trophy in the tournament.
