Morocco have talent all over the place

Morocco arrived to Qatar with big expectations after a tremendous qualifying campaign and a strong series of results in the last couple of years.

The opening match against Croatia carries a massive importance for the Atlas Lions. A potential win here would open up the way for the knockout stage.

The Moroccans have changed the manager just before the World Cup as Vahid Halilhodzic was replaced by local coach Walid Regragui.

Regragui has enough talent in his ranks, including the players such as Hakim Ziyech, Amine Harit, Youssef En-Nesyri, Sofiane Boufal, Naif Ahuerd, Noussair Mazraoui, and Achraf Hakimi.

Morocco demolished DR Congo 4-1 in the reverse fixture of the African WC Qualification playoffs.

They were, however, stopped in the quarterfinal of the African Cup of Nations, falling 2-1 at the hands of Egypt last year.

Croatia can go deep once again

Croatia could once again be one of the tournament’s dark horses after shockingly reaching the final four years ago in Russia.

The team led by Zlatko Dalic have successfully passed the recent obstacles, winning both their European WC Qualification group and the UEFA Nations League section.

The Croats were especially impressive in the recent Nations League affairs, winning four on the trot to secure the top spot in their respective group.

Dalic mainly relies on his team’s impressive midfield with the likes of Marcelo Brozovic, Luka Modric, and Mateo Kovacic.

Croatia also made it to the knockout stage at EURO 2020, falling to Spain in the last 16 round after extra-time (3-5).

This is one of the most exciting first-round ties and we are certainly in for a thrilling football morning on Wednesday in Qatar.
