17/01 Daily Predictions: Win for Morocco go ahead in group

Betting Tips

Morocco, one of the most favored teams for the Africa Cup of Nations, will play Tanzania at Stade de San Pedro on Wednesday night to start their campaign.

After this match is over, there will be a match in Group F between 2012 winners Zambia and two-time champions Congo DR, which will take place at the same location.

TopbetsNG picks the top five betting fixtures you can place your money on, plus two extra tips for our readers.

Morocco vs Tanzania

Morocco, which will start at the top of this pool, should have no trouble moving forward. With two of their recent games postponed, the Moroccans haven’t had a hectic schedule going into the contest, but they are still a formidable team. Before leaving for the Ivory Coast, Morocco defeated Sierra Leone 3-1 in their lone friendly match. They scored more than one goal for the third time in a row in the encounter. The North Africans rarely let up in a game, and this will be another chance for them to perform at their best.

Tanzania is one of the underdogs going into this match. On their third trip to Africa’s largest competition, they intend to make a greater impression. Taifa Stars, who made two appearances in 2019, did not make it to the previous edition. They went home empty-handed after the first round back then, having lost all three of their group matches. They’ll feel more up to the task this time around after a strong qualifying campaign. As Tanzania approaches this match, their most notable accomplishment in the qualifying round is still their 0-0 tie with Algeria.

Verdict

The Atlas Lions are in strong form going into the season opener, having won four of their previous five games. They are also considered heavy favorites after their incredible showing in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, so they must live up to the hype. In their World Cup qualifying match in November, Morocco easily defeated the other team and maintained a clean sheet. In light of this and the two clubs’ head-to-head record, the 1976 winners are predicted to win easily, and their chances of keeping a clean sheet also appear favorable.

DR Congo vs Zambia

The goal for Congo is to regain the kind of play that characterized its heyday, which was the 1960s and 1980s, when they were regarded as one of the top footballing nations on the continent. They have fallen from the public eye since 2000, missing out on three straight group-stage appearances and tournament qualifying between 2008 and 2012. However, they qualified for this year’s championship by winning their qualification group, accruing 12 points from their six games, and edging out Mauritania, Gabon, and Sudan. But their play has suffered in the run-up to the competition, and they come into this game having lost their last three games.

In the meantime, Zambia’s previous victory in an AFCON match was a noteworthy accomplishment, as they went on to win the trophy in February 2012. Chipolopolo, on the other hand, had a bit of a nightmare after that, as they were eliminated from the competition in the group stages on the next two occasions and were unable to qualify for any of the three subsequent editions. Nevertheless, the team is hoping for a strong season this year after not participating in the competition since 2015, under the direction of former Chelsea manager Avram Grant. Zambia has been playing well lately, as evidenced by their victory in the COSAFA Cup final, where they defeated Lesotho 1-0.

Verdict

DR Congo has only won one of their past six games in all competitions, as they are on a run of consecutive losses. This week, they’ll be trying to forget about their most recent performance and get back to winning ways.

Zambia has only won two of its past six games and is without a win in its past two. Before their midweek match, neither team was playing well; therefore, the results could be shared.
