Our football match prediction:
After sharing the spoils with Korea Republic in their last warm-up game, Serbia will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Morocco at Stade Olimpico Grande Torino. The Eagles did well to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but coach Slavoljub Muslin, who was in charge of the team during the qualifiers has lost his job. New coach Mladen Krstajic has a number of top-class players to choose from and the likes of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Nemanja Matic and Aleksandar Mitrovic will be the men to watch in the Serbian team. Morocco, on the other hand, will face the likes of Iran, Portugal and Spain in Group B, meaning that they need to be at their sharpest at the 2018 FIFA World Cup if they are to make it to the knockout stages. The African side recorded six wins in last seven friendly games, but given the quality of Mladen Krstajic's team, we predict the two teams will share the spoils in Friday's football match.
Highlighted Player (Branislav Ivanovic):
Over the years Branislav Ivanovic has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world football. Bane plays as a centre back, but he is capable of playing as a full back as well. The Serbian defender has been playing for Chelsea since 2008 and he used to play for the likes of Srem, OFK Beograd and Lokomotiv Moscow in the past as well. Ivanovic leaves his heart on the field in every single match and that is the main reason why the fans love him. He is known for his aerial ability as well and it has to be noted that he has scored 22 goals for Chelsea since arriving to Stamford Bridge in 2008. The Serbian footballer has won two Premier League trophies with the Blues, but the Champions League trophy won in 2012 is considered the biggest success of his career. Branislav is married to Natasa, who gave birth to his four children.
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 Africa 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 Mustapha Hadji is certainly the biggest star who played for the Moroccan national team.
