Morocco and Malawi will meet on Tuesday in Yaounde at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament. The round of 16 game will pit Morocco, winners of Group C, against Malawi, who finished third in Group B. Malawi were the Africa Cup of Nations’ group stage’s second-best third-place team. They took four points in Group B to qualify for the round of 16.

Morocco will be a difficult task for The Flames. Vahid Halilhod?i?’s team is currently the bookies’ favorite to lift the Africa Cup of Nations trophy. Morocco are the No. 28 ranked team in the world today. Malawi, on the other hand, are ranked No. 129.

Malawi were defeated by Guinea 1-0 to start the Africa Cup of Nations tournament. The Flames followed it up with a 2-1 win over Zimbabwe. A nil-nil draw against group winners Senegal followed. Morocco defeated Ghana 1-0 before beating Comoros 2-0. The Atlas Lions finished the group stage with a 2-2 draw with Gabon.

Morocco and Malawi have met 10 times in all competitions previously. The Atlas Lions have a brilliant head-to-head record against Malawi. Morocco have posted a record of 6W-3D-1L all-time versus Malawi.

Morocco vs Malawi Betting Odds

Morocco are on a brilliant run of form in all competitions. The Atlas Lions are unbeaten in 13 straight games in all competitions. Eleven of those 13 games finished as wins for Morocco. Seven of the 13 games finished with under 2.5 goals scored. In 10 of Morocco’s last 13 matches in all competitions, they kept clean sheets.

Bookies’ best betting odds on a Morocco win at full-time are at 1/3. Morocco have not lost to Malawi since 1993. The last seven meetings between these teams finished without a lost for Morocco. The last time they played Malawi was at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament. The game finished nil-nil at full-time.

Malawi are at the best betting odds of 12/1 to win at full-time. The Flames have been hit and miss over the course of their last 18 games in all competitions. They posted a record of 5W-3D-10L. Malawi’s nil-nil draw against previous tournament favourite Senegal should be a warning to Morocco. This is a team that can perform on its day.

Morocco vs Malawi Team News

Morocco manager Vahid Halilhod?i? doesn’t have any reason to change the squad around for the game on Tuesday with Malawi.

Morocco were already qualified to the knockout stage before that game took place, however.

Angers striker Soufiane Boufal scored two goals during the group stage for Morocco. He bagged a goal versus Ghana in a 1-0 win and got his second versus Gabon in a 2-2 draw. Boufal’s goal against Gabon came from the penalty spot. Paris Saint-Germain full-back Achraf Hakimi got a goal against Gabon as well.

Malawi conceded twice during the group stage and scored twice. There isn’t much more the national team’s coaching staff could have asked for from the Flames. Orlando Pirates striker Gabadinho Mhango scored twice in the group stage with both goals coming against Zimbabwe.

The majority of Malawi’s squad play its club football on the African continent. Charles Petro is one of the only players on the team that plays in Europe. He suits up for Sheriff Tiraspol.
