The best-ranked team in Africa have managed two wins over their last six games in all competitions.

The entertaining encounter saw the Atlas Lions score with their last kick at halftime, while Ayoub El Kaabi and Amine Adli extended it just before the final whistle.

Expert Betting Tips
Over their last two meetings, both teams won their home games with more than two goals scored in each game. Tanzania have been extremely stingy at the back in their last four games, while Morocco haven’t been the same team since their great run in the World Cup. I think both teams will likely settle for a draw here as Tanzania won’t settle for a defeat here; bet on a home win or draw for 2.57.
We expect both teams to get a goal apiece for 2.40.
We think this game won’t produce many goals; bet on a total under 2.5 goals for 1.63.
