Hervé Renard had a hard time hiding his smile after the Lions’ victory against Côte d’Ivoire (1-0), synonymous with elimination for the Elephants. The Lions of the Atlas, powered against Togo (3-1), deserve their place in the quarter-finals after their inaugural defeat against the DRC (1-0). They will face Egypt, which blew the first place in Group D to Ghanaians already qualified on the final day. Rarely convincing since the start of the competition, the Pharaons are still present and count on their incomparable experience in the competition (7 titles) to raise their level of play. Between two nations accustomed to concede very few goals , One expects a real tactical war. Will the “white wizard” make the happiness of the Moroccan people by taking his team to the last square?
Morocco Egypt PICKS AND PREVIEW
Before dominating (1-0) Ghanaians then already guaranteed to participate in the quarters, the Pharaons had delivered two performances of a rare sadness against Mali (0-0) and Uganda (1-0 89 ‘).
Morocco remain on two superb performances against Togo (3-1) and Côte d’Ivoire (1-0).
The Moroccans have lost only one of their last 10 games played in official competition. It was precisely in the opening of this CAN, facing the surprising DRC (1-0).
If it has always been able to preserve its inviolate goal, Egypt has shown absolutely nothing offensively in its first three games. Faced with Moroccans having demonstrated their ability to face Côte d’Ivoire (1-0 win), the Pharaohs must expect to suffer. If they succeed in blocking Mo Salah, the Atlas Lions will preserve their inviolate goal. We have the feeling that nothing can happen to Hervé Renard in this competition: qualification of Morocco.
