2022 World Cup Tips and Predictions: Semi Final 2 - France v Morocco

News Content


The second and final match of the World Cup Semi Finals will be taking place this Wednesday between the reigning title holders - France, and an underdog that has fought its way to the top - Morocco.

There is likely to be a ton of action in a game that will be much closer than people think.

Both sides have a ton of talent, giving opportunities for goals on both sides.

Although most people’s focus will be on a possible Argentina versus France final, there is still a whole game left to play.

Both countries will feel hard done to take an exit in this round of the tournament, but only one victor may go through.

The penalties and extra time effect have been seen throughout many of these knockout playoff matches, with teams content to show their strengths in the last shootout of the game.

Argentina had the grace to put their shots away in the last round against the Netherlands, but will the same ring true this time around?

Morocco have been solid in the back in nearly every game they have played up to this point.

Although their expected goals have been way below average, their one-zero wins are a thing of beauty.

Many football fans would disagree, but the game is theirs for the taking if they go up early.

France versus Morocco - December 14th

France are feeling great after a huge hurdle was conquered in England this past weekend.

The Les Blues are into another WC Semi Final, just one step closer to defending their 2018 title.

Overall, France can feel confident about their performance, although in the second half a shaky defensive performance was had.

Harry Kane missed a penalty in the late stages to put the game into a drawing position, a penalty which many thought would be buried deep into the goal.

Youngster Tchouameni scored an outrageous outside the box shot in the first half, while the talisman Olivier Giroud bagged a header in the 70th to put them in the lead.

France did not need the powers of Kylian Mbappe all too much during this game, although many would say that he was guarded tightly by right back Kyle Walker.

France now looks forward to the last four, and a date with Morocco.

With so many expectations to meet, France best not overlook their opponents this Wednesday.

Firepower aplenty, France will be sure favourites.

Didier Deschamps has done well to get this far with a depleted roster, but two more matches are left in order to fully grasp the riches.

Morocco has been on par with any other underdog story in sporting history.

The African country finds themselves in the Semi Finals after some grueling performances, which saw them defend for their lives.

Against both Spain and Portugal, Morocco were able to weather the storm and win on penalties and a singular goal, respectively.

Hakim Ziyech and company are on house money right now but want to keep going further.

Tired legs and many injuries within the line-up will be a hardship that they have to live with.

Look towards their star goalkeeper Bono to make some crucial saves and have a great game in order for them to have any hope of advancing to the finals versus Argentina.
