The initial favourites for Group F come across a potential slip-up by way of the skill-filled, free-flowing African side in Belgium vs Morocco at Al Thumama Stadium on the 27th November.
Morocco can pose Belgium some serious problems, particularly with the team’s main strength being its wing play and the Red Devils likely rocking up with three at the back, but the European side is still tipped to win.

Belgium to flex their heavyweight credentials
Few could deny that Roberto Martínez is one of international football’s top managers, reaching the status by deploying the woefully underused 3-2-3 formation. Still, he selects his squad very well to fit his system, with that system producing a tremendous haul of 2.78 goals per game in 74 matches in charge.
Belgium didn’t lose during the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign, finishing with a 6-2-0 record, 25 goals for, and only six against. It was a strong showing that only reinforces the power of the Red Devils shown in their last World Cup outing, which ended with a bronze medal. Most recently, Belgium bowed out 2-1 to Italy at the Euros in the Quarter-Finals, which isn’t bad considering the Italians went on to win the trophy.
While some of the players breaking through and on the fringe of the squad showcase Belgium’s incredible potential going forward, it’s all about those seasoned stars who’re now in their prime. Romelu Lukaku’s up top, the masterful playmaker Kevin De Bruyne is just behind, and Thibaut Courtois is still keeping net.
|Hans Vanaken||Attacking Midfielder||5||3|

|Thorgan Hazard||Left Midfielder||4||2|

Strength down the wings could work in Morocco’s favour
The local press of the majority of the nations that he coaches may bill him as the bad guy, but Vahid Halilhodžić is, without a doubt, a very successful manager who gets the best of those that he allows in his squads. The Bosnian demands discipline in training and adherence to his methods, but allows for players to express themselves on the pitch.
The FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers saw Morocco top a group of Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, and Sudan, winning all six games, scoring 20, and only conceding once. Then, over two legs, the Atlas Lions best DR Congo 5-2 after drawing the first game 1-1. This will be their sixth World Cup, arriving after recently going out of the African Cup of Nations to Egypt after added time.
It’s unclear right now if the likes of Hakim Ziyech will join the fold, but in the meantime, Achraf Hakimi, Sofiane Boufal, Tarik Tissoudali, Adam Masina, and Yahia Attiyat Allah will be competing for places down the flanks. Each can utilise speed and strong technical skills to expose holes in Belgium’s 3-4-3 set-up.
|Ayoub El Kaabi||Striker||7||5|
|Imran Louza||Central Midfielder||6||2|
|Selim Amallah||Attacking Midfielder||6||2|
|Tarik Tissoudali||Left Winger||2||2|
|Azzedine Ounahi||Central Midfielder||1||2|

Morocco aren’t the greatest underdogs in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group F – that honour goes to Canada pre-tournament – but the African side isn’t far off. Belgium arrives at this fixture as the heavy 9/20 favourites, which if narrowly better than the odds of them winning the group, which has odds of 12/23.
At 25/4, Morocco are long-shots at best in this fixture, per the bookmakers, despite their usual formation, strengths, and eye for a goal squaring up quite nicely to Belgium. As such, Morocco at +1 in the handicap for 18/19 will have interest, as will Morocco to score one at 3/2 or even 5/1 to net twice.
