France vs Morocco | World Cup

13.12.2022 19:00

Prediction: 2-0

France, the reigning champions, challenges Morocco, the first African team in history to reach a World Cup semi-final. It is a particular challenge that goes beyond just football reasons; to push Morocco, there will be an entire continent that hopes to go on to conquer the first world title after an extraordinary ride that saw Ziyech and his companions eliminate teams of the caliber of Belgium, Spain, and Portugal, never losing and conceding a single goal. For its part, France can complete the world double, a feat only achieved by Italy (1934–1938) and Brazil (1958–1962), after defeating England and Poland in direct challenges and finishing first in the group. It is played at Al-Bayt in Al-Khawr, and whoever wins will meet Croatia and Argentina in the final.

Two teams in superb form face off in the semifinals of the World Cup. France won four games out of five, against Australia, Denmark, Poland, and England, losing only to Tunisia in their last and irrelevant group game. The Transalpines have an atomic attack; they scored 11 goals (only England and Portugal did better but were eliminated) and shot toward the opponent’s goal on average 15.6 times per game (only Germany and Brazil have a better statistic in this sense, but they too are out of the picture). The defense, on the other hand, creaks, and in this World Cup, they have conceded a goal in every game.

Morocco is writing history thanks to an organized team with many talents that are shining in Qatar. The North African side comes into the match unbeaten, with two draws against Croatia and Spain (which they later won on penalties) and three victories against Belgium, Canada, and Portugal. The team’s defensive phase was impressive; in five games, they have conceded only one goal, their own goal against Canada, when the match was already 2-0 up and the next round was in the pocket. Morocco, on the other hand, is a sporting miracle: including World Cup matches, they have not lost in 12 matches, with 9 wins and three draws, resulting in a fairy tale that begins from afar.


  • Morocco has scored five goals in five World Cup matches.
  • France have 11 goals to their credit and have scored at least two on four out of five occasions.

  • The French have the best pair of goals in the World Cup; Giroud and Mbappé have scored nine goals in two games.
  • Morocco have scored at least one goal in nine of their last thirteen matches and in three of their five World Cup matches.
