Mauritania vs. Morocco football match of Africa Cup of Nations Group E

On March 26, the national teams of Mauritania and Morocco will play in the group stage qualification of the African Cup of Nations. We offer our forecast and bets for this match. Will the guests manage to win, or will the hosts fight back?

Mauritania national football team

The Mauritania national team is the second in Quartet E with five points in four rounds. The national team won a home victory over the Central African Republic (2:0), and also shared points with the Moroccans (0:0) and with Burundi (1:1) at home.

In the last qualifying round, Mauritania went to visit Burundi, where they suffered their first defeat, conceding three goals (1:3). Note that the Mauritanians have not lost in home games since 2018 - eight wins and seven draws, including the defeat to the Gambia in a penalty shootout.

Morocco national football team

The Morocco national team was initially considered the main favorite of Quartet E. This status is fully justified by the team. In the starting round of qualification, the Moroccans shared points with the upcoming rival (0:0), after which they issued three victories in a row.

After the home defeat at Burundi (3:0), the team confidently beat the Central African Republic at home (4:1), and in the last game they could again upset their opponent, but this time away (2:0). Having scored nine goals in four qualifying matches, the Moroccans conceded only one goal.

Statistics

  • Mauritania have not conceded more than 1 goal at home since 2017. 
  • In the last 4 home games of Mauritania, a goal was scored in the first half. 
  • In 4 out of 5 head-to-head meetings between teams, at least three goals were scored.

Our Prediction

In order to complete the qualification early in the first position, Morocco need to not concede in the upcoming game. In terms of the squad, the guests are noticeably superior in the class to Mauritania, but still, the opponent is very reliable in defense at home stadiums. In our opinion, the winner will not be determined in the upcoming match.

Our forecast is a draw with odds of 3.15 on 1xbet.
