France won the World Cup in Russia in 2018 and are now on their way to defending their title and winning back-to-back World Cups. The two sides that have looked the most dominant at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar have been Brazil and France.

Brazil were eliminated in their quarter-final against Croatia which has now paved the way for France to win their third World Cup with previous wins in 1998 and 2018. Standing in their way are surprise semi-finalists in Morocco.

Morocco shocked Portugal in a penalty shootout in their quarter-final clash to book themselves a spot in the semi-final against France.

Morocco are the only African team left in the competition and are looking to create history by making it to their first World Cup final.

They have their biggest challenge ahead of them when they face France on Dec 14 at the Al Bayt Stadium. If you are looking to take part in football betting, we have you covered.

France vs Morocco: How Did They Reach 2022 FIFA WC Semi-Finals?

France had a tough challenge in their quarter-final when they took on England. France scored quickly in the first half and went into half-time 1-0.

England bounced back quickly in the second half when France conceded a penalty to make it 1-1. It looked like the match would go into extra time but Olivier Giroud scored once again for France to get them to the semi-finals.

Morocco did very well to get past the round of 16 and face Portugal in the quarter-finals. They surprised Portugal and scored just before the first half to take a 1-0 lead which they held on to till the very end to send Portugal out of the World Cup.

France vs Morocco Match Betting Options

Didier Deschamps will likely go into this game with a 4-3-3 strategy as France have shown that they prefer to attack from the start to the finish and put pressure on the opposition.

Deschamps must also get credit for backing veteran Olivier Giroud to start for France as the striker has repaid the faith Deschamps has had in him by scoring 4 crucial goals for France.

Kylian Mbappe’s brilliance was curtailed against England as they marked him really well and limited his opportunities for scoring.

It’s not easy to mark and keep Mbappe from scoring but if Morocco want to advance, they need to neutralize Mbappe early on.

Can Morocco’s Defense Stop Mbappe-Giroud Duo?

France will once again look to Antoine Griezemann and Ousmane Dembele to make those creative passes and set up Giroud and Mbappe to score.

Walid Regragui should be right up there to win the coach of the tournament as he has done a phenomenal job to get Morocco to the semi-final. Regragui commands huge respect among his players and was the reason why Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech decided to come out of retirement and play for Morocco again.

Regragui has trusted the 4-3-3 combination for Morocco and will stick to the same game plan against France.

His big concern will be the fitness of his players who gave it their all against Portugal and emptied the gas tank. Will he be able to get the same mileage and quality out of his starting XI?

If Morocco is going to surprise France, it will depend heavily on the calls that he will make. The key players for Morocco are going to be Hakim Ziyech and Sofiane Boufal.

While Morocco have played amazing football in Qatar and have caused more than one upset, we don’t see them getting past France.

France vs Morocco Betting Tip For Top Goal Scorers 

Kylian Mbappe tops the list of top goal scorers at the 2022 FIFA World Cup with 5 goals. He did not score against England and will be keen to add to his tally against Morocco.

Youssef En-Nesyri has scored 2 goals for Morocco while Zakaria Aboukhlal, Abdelhamid Sabiri, and Hakim Ziyech have scored 1 goal each.

Recommended Betting Tip: Kylian Mbappe.
