What can you say about Cristiano Ronaldo? He was absolutely a one man wrecking crew against Spain in game one where he, figuratively, put the team on his back.
Ronaldo carried Portugal to a 3-3 draw against Spain. They earned a huge point and have the opportunity to not only make it out of group stage, but actually win their group.
Morocco, meanwhile, suffered a huge blow losing in extra time to Iran. Not only did they lose, but to add salt to the wound it was an own goal by Aziz Bouhaddouz. He came in as a sub in the 77th minute for Ayoub El Kaabi.
From a betting perspective for us both games hit. Iran-Morocco under was a success and the Spain-Portugal game went over. Let’s try and continue that trend with Portugal-Morocco.
If Portugal could have gotten a little help on the defensive side, Portugal would have stolen a game from Spain. Alas, they drew with Spain because of Ronaldo.
Ronaldo started off the game with a goal in the fourth minute, ended the first half with a goal, and ended the game with his third and final goal.
Against Morocco, Ronaldo won’t be asked to carry Portugal; he probably will, but he should get some help from his friends. Goncalo Guedes, who found the score sheet with an assist against Spain, may grab a goal in this one.
Bruno Fernandes should be involved with crosses and the potential for an assist, and same can be said about Cedric Soares.
Nordin Amrabat had the highest rating with a 7.3 score for the game, unfortunately, he had to be subbed out late in the game due to an injury and that may have cost Morocco the potential draw, but even a win.
Morocco played pretty sloppy for most of the first half before they finally got things rolling a little bit on the offensive end with a couple of threats in the second half.
They possessed the ball for almost 70% of the game, but they couldn’t breakthrough.
If Morocco is going to steal this game from Portugal; they will need to play some sound defense, but most importantly, their offensive pieces will have to actually step up.
Hakim Ziyech was pretty mediocre against Iran. Ziyech is looked upon to give his team chances with crosses and passes. He did take three shots, but, obviously, none found the net.
Free Portugal vs. Morocco World Cup Prediction:
Portugal will score at least two goals. In fact, Ronaldo will be on hat trick watch in this one, as well. If he can score three on Spain he can score at least three on just about anyone. So, that’s not a problem.
Portugal’s defense was leaky, but that was against Spain. Will they tighten up against Morocco? Potentially. Morocco didn’t pose much of a threat against Iran so counting on them to score is
4* Free World Cup Betting Pick: Over
Portugal is going to win this game. -170 isn’t that bad of a bet, but if you are looking for some more value, look to the over. Portugal might end up carrying the over themselves and I believe they will. Morocco has the potential to chip in a goal, as well.
World Cup Free Score Prediction: Portugal 3 – Morocco 0
