Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2024 match:
All eyes will be on Stade Laurent Pokou when Zambia and Morocco lock horns in the Africa Cup of Nations group stages round 3. Morocco are eager to clinch top position in Group F and they are seen as favourites to win Wednesday’s encounter. Walid Regragui is unlikely to make changes to the team that shared the spoils with D.R. Congo. As always, the opposition back-line should have Galatasaray ace Hakim Ziyech at bay.
Avram Grant’s troops, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back draws with D.R. Congo and Tanzania. However, away win should be considered this time out as Zambia important defender Rodrick Kabwe misses the match through suspension as well as Rijeka midfielder Emmanuel Banda. In their last meeting in a competitive match Morocco defeated Zambia 3-1 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
