Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Guinea Bissau and Morocco face each other in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers for the second time in just four days. Morocco crushed Guinea Bissau 5-0 in Rabat on Wednesday evening, and Vahid Halilhodzic’s men are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s clash as well. Sevilla attacker En Nesyri continues to miss out through injury, while Chelsea ace Ziyech has been left out of the squad.
Anyhow, Vahid Halilhodzic has strength in depth, and we predict that the Group I leaders are going to prove their worth on the field. Sevilla forward Munir El Haddadi is pushing for a start. Guinea Bissau, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the Stade Moulay Abdallah clash, and we do not believe that they are capable of matching the Atlas Lions, who look sharp in front of goal. Midfielder Opa Sangante is injured for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Emilio Nsue):
Emilio Nsue is a pacey winger who was born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain on September 30, 1989. After starting his youth career at Atletico Baleares, he moved to Mallorca football academy in 2004 and he continued playing for los Bermellones at senior level.
Nsue scored 13 goals in 142 appearances for the club and you should know that he played for the likes of Castellon and Real Sociedad on loan from 2008 to 2010. In the summer of 2014 he moved to England, signing a three-year deal with Middlesbrough as a free agent. Emilio Nsue made his debut for the Boro on August 9 in a 2-0 win over Birmingham City at Riverside Stadium.
After making 70 appearances in the league for Middlesbrough, he joined Birmingham City on January 18, 2017 on a three-and-a-half-year deal. Despite being born in Spain, Nsue represents Equatorial Guinea national football team on the international stage. Nsue made his debut for Equatorial Guinea on March 21, 2013 in an unofficial friendly game against Benin.
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.
