Morocco goes head to head with Portugal in a match from the World Cup 1/4-finals on Saturday. Stay with us and these best free soccer predictions.
Morocco are the big surprise at the World Cup this year. In the 1/8-finals they caused a serious upset by eliminating Spain. The Atlas Lions were much better in the penalties which allowed them to reach the Top 8 of the World Cup. The regular time ended with a 0-0 draw.
It was an amazing triumph for Morocco to reach the World Cup 1/4-finals. Their goalkeeper Yassine Bounou deserves praise for what he did during the penalties, but every other player must be complimented as well. It’s true that Walid Regragui’s team mostly played in defense against La Roja, but this proved to be a winning formula for them.
Hakim Ziyech remains a key player for Morocco. The Chelsea winger scored one of the penalties against Spain. Let’s see how he will do against Portugal.
Portugal made the most impressive performance during the World Cup 1/8-finals. Selecao faced Switzerland and stunned them with an amazing 6-1 win in Lusail. Few people expected such a domination from the Portuguese side, but it happened.
Benfica’s striker Goncalo Ramos started ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and thanked his manager Fernando Santos with a hattrick. You can be sure he will start against Morocco as well. Pepe, Raphael Guerrero and Rafael Leao scored as well against the Crusaders.
Joao Felix also shined against Switzerland despite not being among the goalscorers. Atletico Madrid’s star made two assists for the win.
Most likely Cristiano Ronaldo will start on the bench against the Atlas Lions. He will be ready to enter the pitch in the second half, though.
