AFCON 2022 QUARTER-FINAL: Egypt vs Morocco

With Cameroon and Burkina Faso through to AFCON 2022 Semifinal, today’s fixtures will decide which other 2 teams will join them.

Egypt will take on Morocco in the early fixture, with Senegal facing off against Equatorial Guinea later on.

2 crucial games looking well set to go down, isn’t it?

Unfortunately, we can only look at a game, and from the looks of things, the game between the North African giants seem a must-watch for every football lover

Okay, let’s proceed to the business of the day, shall we?

EGYPT:

Excellent Defensive Record: Although the Egyptians haven’t been excellent going forward, their defensive record is definitely no joke.

Conceding just 1 goal in 4 games, it’s safe to say that the Pharaohs of Egypt have one of the best defenses in this competition.

And with the fact above, Morocco certainly have a huge task in their hands when they take on the Egyptians.

AFCON Quarter Final Victory: One other fact that could light up hope in Carlos Queiroz’s men is this.

Although Morocco have been the dominant side between both sides in previous encounters, a huge Quarter Final victory in favor of the Egyptians at AFCON 2017(the last time both sides met in an AFCON competition) should help boost the latter’s courage as they go into this game.

Moving on to the Atlas Lions of Morocco.

MOROCCO:

Performance In The Competition: Tagged “one of the competition’s favorites”, Morocco haven’t disappointed us in this aspect.

They have managed 3 wins and 1 draw in all 4 games played so far in this competition.

No doubt about it, they will be going all out to keep their impressive run in fact.

Excellent Goal Scoring Record: 2nd only to that of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, no other team’s prolificacy in front of goal beats that of Yahid Halilhodzic’ men.

They’ve scored an impressive 7 goals, with 2 in each of their last 3 games. Guess,

Egypt’s defense will also have loads of work in their hands today, isn’t it?

CONCLUSION:

With the fact gathered before us combining both Egypt’s resilience and Morocco’s dexterity, extra time or Penalty shout-out deciding this outcome of this game is definitely not off the table.
