Morocco must do what they have never done before to reach the World Cup final – beat France. The two nations have locked horns seven times previously, with Les Bleus winning five, while two matches finished as draws, including the most recent in 2007.
France are dreaming of becoming the first team since Brazil in 1958 and 1962 to clinch back-to-back World Cup titles. After digging in to defeat a spirited England in the quarter-finals, Didier Deschamps’ side are now favourites to win the tournament in our World Cup Outright Betting market. To lift the trophy, they need Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud to keep up their goalscoring form. Mbappe is the competition’s leading marksman with five goals, while Giroud is one behind with four.
Nobody expected Morocco to reach the semi-finals, but they have produced some remarkable displays to get this far. After upsetting Spain in the last 16, the North Africans caused another seismic shock with a 1-0 quarter-final victory against Portugal. The Atlas Lions’ defence has been key to their success. They have conceded the fewest goals of any of the four remaining teams (1), keeping clean sheets against Belgium, Croatia, Spain and Portugal. Walid Regragui will hope his side can keep it tight at the back again in this one to give them the best chance of advancing to the final.
