Portugal v Morocco- World Cup 2018

Portugal vs Morocco World Cup Prediction 19th June 2018 – 7.00 p.m
(Full time: 1:0 – goals: Ronaldo 4′)

Portugal earned themselves a good point as they picked up a draw with Spain in their opener. That eases any nerves or pressure off them as they go on to now face Morocco and then Iran in the group. They looked good enough in that game against Spain, albeit reliant on Cristiano Ronaldo that in our Portugal v Morocco predictions, we can’t see the Africans picking themselves from their opening defeat and toppling the Europeans.

Portugal vs Morocco Odds*

Portugal 4/6
Draw 14/5

Who will win Portugal vs Morocco?

This may be a tighter game that it would have initially appeared to be. Morocco showed plenty of commitment and attacking intent in their opening game against Iran that the late own goal that they conceded was a bit harsh. Portugal are not carrying great winning form and their defence wasn’t pretty against Spain. This could be a really tight and intense 90 minutes ahead.

Portugal to be tested

Portugal will probably be happy with their point from their 3-3 draw against Spain. They avoided defeat and showed character in pulling out a late equaliser. It was the Cristiano Ronaldo show as the Real Madrid man hit a hattrick, but his first was a spot kick and the second because of a howler from Spain keeper David de Gea who fluffed a nothing shot from him. So they had some luck along the way and Portugal are only W1 D3 in their last four games and because they are at an odds-on price in this one, they may not have great appeal for punters. Cristiano Ronaldo is the 13/5 favourite in the bet365 first goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.) and the Iberian nation are reliant upon their star man for goals. Portugal don’t actually look as if they have any better in them than what they produced against Spain and a Portugal 1-0 option in the bet365 correct score market at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.) and that has appeal in our Portugal v Morocco predictions. They are not always the most adventurous side and will be facing a Morocco side who need to get at them.

Desperate Atlas Lions to threaten

The Atlas Lions need to come out and get a win here. A point really would not do a lot for them considering they have to go and face Spain after this. This is likely to be their last chance at least keeping their qualification hopes, however slim, alive for the final round of group stage matches. Morocco fell 1-0 against Iran in their opening game, shipping an injury-time own goal to deny them a point that they full served as they had been on top for the match. What will give the African nation some hope is that Portugal have conceded against Egypt and Tunisia in their last six matches so that will give Morocco some self-belief. Both teams to score is at 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.). Morocco were keen to get on the front foot against Iran and while they lacked some quality in the final third, Portugal’s defence isn’t water tight. The Atlas Lions are W4 D1 L1 in their last six games and need something spectacular to happen here.

Portugal vs Morocco Prediction

Our Portugal v Morocco prediction has to side with the Europeans getting a win but not a comfortable at that. They are the stronger of the two and should be in a more confident mood of the two. We’re not expecting a high scoring game though and are backing a Portugal to win by a one goal margin, just to see them do enough.
