Prediction for the Morocco vs Portugal 2022 World Cup match – Do you already know the predictions Morocco vs Portugal match world cup 2022? If not, you can read the article we have provided below.

Morocco will face Portugal in the quarter-final match at world cup 2022 on Saturday 10 December 2022 at 22.00 WIB.

Maybe some of you have questions about whether Christiano Ronaldo is playing or not. After being benched by coach Fernando Santos against Switzerland, will CR7 be back on the bench in this match or will he be able to score his goal in the knockout phase of the World Cup?

The Morocco vs Portugal match will be one of the matches in the top 8 of the 2022 world cup.

The match between representatives of CAF (Africa) and representatives of Europe (UEFA) will be held at Al Thumama Stadium.

Ronaldo's presence could indeed have a positive impact on Portugal's game. However, when he is absent, Portugal can also play regularly, like when they beat Switzerland 6-1 in the round of 16 yesterday.

On the other hand, Morocco, which has a strong defense, with only conceding 1 goal in 4 matches, is Portugal's challenge.

The Moroccan team surprisingly became a dark horse team that managed to eliminate strong opponents in the group stage and round of 16 of the 2022 world cup.

In fact, the Moroccan national team is the team that has conceded the fewest goals, conceding only one goal in a total of four matches.

Morocco vs Portugal Match Prediction

Fernando Santos, who is Portugal's coach, made a big surprise in his team's line-up against Switzerland.

For the first time in the 2022 World Cup, Ronaldo played as a substitute and came on in the second half.

Ronaldo is recorded as having played since the 2006 World Cup. In Germany at that time he was a reserve player in the third group phase match against Mexico.

But at that time Ronaldo did not compete at all. In total, Ronaldo has played in 21 world cup matches with 8 goals and 2 assists.

Of this number, he played 15 times, was replaced 5 times, and 1 time came on as a substitute.

He experienced this last note during the match Portugal vs Switzerland on December 7 2022 when he played the last 16 minutes of the match.

Not worried if Santos gets the spotlight regarding his decision even though Ronaldi is not injured.

Interestingly, Ronaldo was able to play regularly against Switzerland and won 6-1. It's ironic for Ronaldo because Goncalo Ramos, who replaced his role, scored a hat trick in that match.

“Cristiano and I have a good relationship. I have known him since he was 19 years old. "I always think Cristiano has an important role in the team," said Santos.

Fernando Santos said that Ronaldo would be involved in the match against Morocco.

On the other hand, Santos did not clearly state whether the former Manchester United striker would play from the start or return to his role as he did against Switzerland.

“Ronaldo will definitely be involved in facing Morocco. All the players on the bench could also be involved. "If they don't play from the start, they can play as a substitute," continued Santos.

Morocco vs Portugal Player Lineup Prediction

Actually, even without Ronaldo, Portugal can still play well. Another piece of evidence that should calm Portugal fans is that they were able to win Euro 2016 when Ronaldo did not play the full game in the final.

Meanwhile, Morocco can field its best squad. Hakim Ziyech, Achraf Hakimi and Yassine Bounou can compete from the early minutes.

  1. Morocco (4-2-3-1): Yassine Bounou; Achraf Hakimi, Romain Saiss, Nayef Aguerd, Yahya Attiat-Allah; Azzedine Ounahi, Sofyan Amrabat; Selim Amallah, Sofiane Boufal, Hakim Ziyech; Youssef En-Nesyri. Coach: Walid Regragui
  2. Portugal (4-3-3): Diogo Costa; Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, Danilo Pereira, Raphael Guerreiro; William Carvalho, Ruben Neves, Bruno Fernandes; Bernardo Silva, Joao Felix, Cristiano Ronaldo. Coach: Fernando Santos

Morocco vs Portugal Match Score Prediction

The Moroccan national team became the fourth African team to reach the quarter-finals of the world cup, after beating 2010 world cup winners Spain on penalties. Even though this will be the quarter-finals of the first world cup, Morocco.

However having played and beaten Portugal previously in a group stage match in 1986, a year later they reached the last 16.

Morocco has also lost to Portugal, this happened at the 2018 edition of the World Cup in Russia. At that time, Morocco lost 1-0 in the group stage.

On the other hand, Portugal recorded their second biggest win of the world cup this year as they beat Switzerland 6-1, cementing their place in the quarter-finals.

Morocco have reached this stage of the world cup on two previous occasions, and on both occasions they reached the semi-finals.

The Morocco vs Spain match is a meeting of the team that has conceded the fewest goals against the team that has scored the most goals in this year's world cup.

Therefore, this match is likely to be a tight affair and could even see Morocco continue their brilliant run, reaching a historic semi-final against either England or France.
