Morocco vs Portugal Prediction on December 10, 2022

Match info

This weekend’s men’s football 2022 FIFA World Cup quarter-final matchup between Morocco and Portugal in Qatar will be played following an exciting round-of-16 finish. The match will commence on Saturday, December 10, at 6 p.m. local & Moscow time at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha. Despite Morocco’s heroic stunt against Spain in the last round, bookmakers with Android apps favor Portugal here.

Meeting statistics

The current form of Morocco

The ‘Atlas Lions’ are having a fantastic season in Qatar and have advanced to the round of eight for the first time after a thrilling penalty shootout victory over Spain. They also won a challenging Group F ahead of European powerhouses Croatia and Belgium. Since Portugal’s performance against Switzerland on Tuesday against Switzerland was undoubtedly the most remarkable of the World Cup thus far, they face another enormous challenge to advance to the semi-finals.

After taking a break, Hakim Ziyech, Sofiane Boufal, and Sofyan Amrabat all played for Morocco against Spain. Achraf Hakimi, who had ankle discomfort, calmly chipped in the game-winning penalty kick. Yassine Bounou, who had to depart from the match against Belgium late due to sickness, stopped two penalties in the shootout.

The current form of Portugal

Gonçalo Ramos of Benfica destroyed Murat Yakin’s team with a stylish hat-trick in a 6-1 demolition that rivaled — and probably exceeded — Brazil’s dominance so far after Fernando Santos made the crucial decision to bench Cristiano Ronaldo following his antics against South Korea. The demolition of Switzerland was second only to Brazil’s overall dominance so far. It will be interesting to see if Santos sticks to his guns about Ronaldo, who had his goal disallowed for offside against Switzerland as he did make a late cameo after supporters clamored for him to play.

Portugal can succeed with their talisman, but even without him, they dominated their opponents in the round of 16, playing such great, fluid football. Ramos can’t possibly be dropped. While Danilo was out due to injury, Otávio was back in the Portugal squad for the match against Switzerland.

Head-to-head encounters

The only two previous encounters between these two countries took place during World Cups, with Portugal triumphing 1-0 in Russia four years ago after an early goal by Cristiano Ronaldo eliminated their opponents from the tournament at the group stage. In 1986, Morocco defeated Portugal 3-1 in Mexico.

Match analytics

Morocco has put on an outstanding performance thus far, and their performances will undoubtedly remain in the mind for a very long time. Croatia was held in a campaign that will live in infamy by Walid Regragui’s excellent team, which also defeated Spain, Belgium, and Canada. They will undoubtedly relish the chance to play the big underdog once more, but this is undoubtedly going to be too far. After an erratic World Cup so far, Portugal was amazing against the typically reliable Swiss. Ronaldo’s absence seemed to inspire the team, and they were absolutely sensational.

We propose: Winning margin – Portugal by 2 goals (2 by 2) with odds of 4.75 at Sven-play.
