Morocco vs Portugal – Prediction & Preview


Morocco arrives with confidence sky-high after defeating Spain on penalties. The only doubt in the lineup is Naif Aguerd who finished the last match injured.

Walid Regragui’s team will have to have the same defensive order as against Spain and have more possession, as they showed in the group stage.


  • Defensive organization
  • Attacking transition
  • More involvement of Hakim Ziyech on the ball

  • Speed on the ball
  • João Félix
  • Bruno Fernandes
