Ivory Coast v Morocco Matched Betting Tips

Ivory Coast v Morocco matched betting tips for the FIFA World Cup 2018 Qualifier match at Stade Félix Houphouët-Boigny on Saturday 11th November. Read the match preview and predictions for Ivory Coast v Morocco matched betting tips.

With Gabon and Mali already eliminated, the winner of this match will qualify for the World Cup in Russia 2018. Morocco hold the cards with a one point advantage, meaning that a draw would be enough to see them through. The onus will be on Ivory Coast to attack and  a raucous crowd will cheer them on in Abidjan.

Ivory Coast Team News

Head coach Marc Wilmots has a decent pool of players to pick from her and is expected to go with an attacking setup. Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is a real livewire with his pace and trickery. Max Gradel seems to have rediscovered some form for Toulouse and will be aiming to replicate that for his national side. There are a few options up-front but Maxwel Cornet is tipped to start.

Morocco Team News

Hervé Renard hasn’t made any drastic changes to his starting lineup throughout this qualification process, so the same team that beat Gabon 3-0 is expected to start here. Roman Saiss has been a rock at the back for English Football Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers and has forged a solid partnership with skipper Mehdi Benatia. Khalid Boutaib finished the last match with a hat-trick, so is nailed on to start up-front.

Ivory Coast v Morocco Predictions

Ivory Coast have a number of talented players in their squad but haven’t quite kicked on from their good start to events in Group C. Having blown away Mali and Gabon, they were then beaten by the latter at home and could only draw with the former in Bamako.

Morocco’s rise to the top of the table has been built on solid defensive displays. They are yet to concede a goal in this pool but their lack of adventure going forward could be their undoing here. They have played three 0-0 draws so far but playing for a point is a risky tactic that could backfire.

The home side simply have to go for it, so will be vulnerable at the back. That said,  they have the personnel to breach the Morocco back line and odds of around the even money mark make them well worth backing. This will be a tense match and a Correct Score bet of 1-0 to Ivory Coast is enticing.
