Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
Stade de la Reunification will host Tuesday’s football game between Central Africa and Morocco. Vahid Halilhodzic’s troops rolled over les Fauves at Stade Mohamed V 4-1, with Chelsea ace Hakim Ziyech scoring a brace. The former Ajax midfielder will once again pose a big threat for Central Africa defenders, who were anything but impressive in the match in Casablanca.
The Atlas Lions are eager to cement top position in Group E, and we are positive that they will adopt yet another attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s clash. Inter winger Hakimi will be yet another man to watch in the away team. Central Africa aim to keep their automatic qualification hopes alive, and they are likely to go for a win against Morocco as well. Considering that Morocco will have a number of opportunities to score on the break, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Atlas Lions.
Highlighted Player (Geoffrey Kondogbia):
Geoffrey Kondogbia is a French football player born on 15th of February 1993 in Nemours with roots in Central African Republic. Kondogbia started his football career in the youth of RC Lens where he made his debut for the first team in season 2010/2011. After playing for Sevilla and AS Monaco Kondogbia made a transfer to Inter Milan, which paid around 35 million euro.
Knodogbia is, despite his age, a very mature football player, which plays as a defensive midfielder. Being left-footed gives Kondogbia more abilities than other players in order to open up and create space in the pitch. Kondogbia made his debut for the French national team in August 2013.
Kondogbia is a very talentful player, which will be one of the best defensive midfielders In a couple of years. The competition for a spot in the starting eleven of France is very hard, which gives Kondogbia the opportunity to focus on Inter Milan.
Highlighted Team (Morocco):
Morocco, the Atlas Lions, are the first African team to win a group at the World Cup finals. Back in 1986 the team managed to finish the group stages above Portugal, Poland and England, but West Germany proved to be a big catch for the Moroccan national team in the last 16 of the tournament.
The Atlas Lions participated at the World Cup finals on four occasions, but winning of the 1976 African Cup of Nations is considered the team’s biggest success. Morocco were producing outstanding displays at the tournament in Ethiopia and it has to be noted that they defeated Guinea in the title game.
Morocco play their home games at Stade Adrar and Stade de Marrakech and they wear red shirts and green shorts when playing in front of home fans. A number of top-class footballers played for Morocco in the past, but Mustafa Hadji is certainly the biggest star who played for the Moroccan national team.
