Morocco vs Portugal prediction, betting tips, and picks

We have some amazing Morocco vs Portugal betting tips for you today! We expect the game on the 10th of December to be top-notch but the Morocco vs Portugal odds that are out there make it easy to give good predictions this week.

Morocco are without a doubt the most pleasant World Cup surprise this year. Coach Walid Regragui’s boys defied all odds and won Group F. And they did it in fashion as Croatia, Belgium, and Canada were brushed aside.

On the other hand, we have Portugal. The Navigators were somewhat uncertain in the group stage. Yes, they won Group H with ease as they had six points while South Korea and Uruguay only had four but the performances weren’t as convincing as you’d hope.

Nevertheless, Portugal’s round-of-16 clash against Switzerland said it all – Fernando Santos wants the World Cup gold. He benched Cristiano Ronaldo, he gave Goncalo Ramos a chance, and Switzerland were trashed 6:1 by the Navigators. Our Morocco vs Portugal prediction for the quarter-finals is for a hard-earned Portuguese victory.

Players to watch in the Morocco vs Portugal clash on the 10th of December.

Morocco

Achraf Hakimi: PSG’s star right-back has been killing it in the past two years. He’s without a doubt the best player in the World in his position and he certainly has room to grow as he’s still too young. The 24-year-old defender has been ever-present for Morocco in the World Cup and he even got to score the last penalty against Spain which gave the North African country a chance to cheer.

Portugal

Goncalo Ramos: Fernando Santos finally listened to reason and he played Goncalo Ramos instead of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Morocco vs Portugal odds for a Portuguese victory now dropped significantly as we expect Goncalo Ramos to be in the starting XI once more. He bagged a hattrick against Switzerland and we can’t wait to see how well he’ll do on the 10th of December

Our best Morocco vs Portugal prediction and picks for this World Cup game

Here are our best Morocco vs Portugal picks for the quarter-finals in the World Cup.

Morocco vs Portugal odds: Portugal to win @ -142

Morocco’s World Cup performance has been an incredible underdog story so far. Sadly, every story has to end and the time has come for Morocco to take a bow and leave the World Cup. Portugal are just too good.

Our major Morocco vs Portugal pick for this quarter-final game is Portugal defeating Morocco with a narrow win. It certainly isn’t going to be an easy task for Fernando Santos as his boys will have to work extra hard to knock out these motivated underdogs.

All that coach Fernando Santos has to do is listen to reason once more. Cristiano Ronaldo has been one of the best players in the World in the last 20 years but today he’s just a shadow of his former glory. We expect to see Goncalo Ramos or Rafael Leao leading the charge and this will undoubtedly make our Morocco vs Portugal prediction for a European victory a success.

Morocco vs Portugal prediction: Under 2.5 goals @ -142

As we stated above, Portugal are expected to defeat Morocco but it’s not going to be an easy task for the Navigators. Paradoxically, Morocco haven’t conceded a single goal in the World Cup. Yes, the match against Canada ended with a 2:1 victory for Morocco but it was Nayed Aguerd who scored an own goal.

This means that in 240 minutes of soccer (270 to be precise as the Morocco vs Spain match went into extra time) not one team managed to put it past Bono. Speaking of whom, Morocco’s goalkeeper is in pole position to win the Golden Glove this year. He’s performing at a world-class level and that’s why our Morocco vs Portugal prediction for a few goals in this game is going to be a hit among the betting fans.
