Morocco will aim to continue their impressive recent winning streak when they take on Guinea-Bissau in their 2022 FIFA World Cup Group I qualifier in Casablanca on Saturday.
Vahid Halilhodzic’s side have won their last five matches across all competitions and have made a strong start in Group I, following resounding 2-0 and 5-0 victories over Sudan and Guinea-Bissau in September and October respectively.
A second victory in just three days over Guinea-Bissau would move Morocco five points clear of Saturday’s opponents, who have already played one game more in this group stage, at the top.
The Djurtus will take to the pitch without the services of Chateauroux midfielder Opa Sangante, who came off injured on the half-hour mark on Wednesday.
Should the 30-year-old fail to pass a fitness test, Kauno Zalgiris’ man Rudinilson Silva could come into the Guinea-Bissau starting side after coming off the bench in the aforementioned game.
Meanwhile, on the back of his side’s dominating display in Wednesday’s reverse fixture, Halilhodzic could name a similar side this weekend.
Should that be the case, we could see a defensive unit of Achraf Hakimi, Nayef Aguerd, Romain Saiss and Adam Masina shielding Sevilla’s Bono in goal.
Debutant Imran Louza had a dream start to his international career when he added to the scores in the 45th minute last time out and the Watford man could retain his place in the starting lineup.
Sevilla’s Munir El Haddadi also put on a solid display after coming off the bench to complete the rout and the 26-year-old could be rewarded with a place in the starting XI.
Guinea possible starting lineup:
Mendes; Silva, Mane, Nanu, Djalo; Semedo, Cassama, Mendes; Jorginho, Balde, Piqueti; Mendy
Morocco possible starting lineup:
Bono; Hakimi, Saiss, Aguerd, Masina; Taarabt, Amrabat; Louza; Chair, El Kaabi, El Haddadi
