Expert Betting Tips
Morocco are playing extremely well for now but the record against Gabon isn't something to write home about, so we are going for a first-half draw for 1.90.
Morocco start as favourites and will fancy their chances of coming out on top but with the two teams producing no more than two goals in any of their games so far, we are suggesting both halves under 1.5 for 1.71.
This match is dicey and we are going for Morocco win/draw for under 2.5 for 1.66.
