Congo and Morocco are set to face off in a crucial World Cup Qualifying match in Africa.

The fixture, originally scheduled to be held in Kinshasa, will now take place at the Grand Stadium of Agadir in Morocco due to venue approval issues.

Current Form

Congo's Form

Congo enters this match without a single point in Group E, having not won in their last four games across all competitions.

Their recent World Cup qualifying match resulted in a 4-2 defeat against Zambia. In addition, Congo's second scheduled opponent, Eritrea, withdrew from the qualifiers, and a friendly against Gabon in March ended in a 1-1 draw.

Congo has only managed one win in their last seven competitive matches since September 2022.

Morocco's Form

Morocco, on the other hand, sits at the top of Group E with six points from two games.

They recently secured a 2-1 victory over Zambia in a World Cup qualifier. The Atlas Lions, having performed impressively at the 2022 World Cup, are eager to qualify for the 2026 iteration of the tournament.

Their recent competitive form is strong, with notable players like Hakim Ziyech and Eliesse Ben Seghir contributing to their success.

Team News

Congo

Congo has opted for a relatively inexperienced squad, with 12 players earning their first-ever senior call-up.

Key players include Strasbourg's 18-year-old midfielder Rabby Nzingoula and Northampton Town's Will Hondermarck.

Striker Silvere Ganvoula, who has netted six goals in 17 international matches, is expected to lead the attack.

Morocco

Morocco boasts a rich squad with players like Ziyech, Seghir, and Brahim Diaz providing support to Youssef En-Nesyri in attack.

The North Africans also have strong bench options, including Olympiacos' Ayoub El Kaabi and Bayer Leverkusen's Amine Adli.

Predicted Lineups

Congo

Goalkeeper: Vimalin

Defenders: Illoy-Ayyet, Andzouana, Passi, Tsouka

Midfielders: Makoumbou, Dembi, Avounou, Makouta

Forwards: Ganvoula, Bassouamina

Morocco

Goalkeeper: Bounou

Defenders: Hakimi, Aguerd, Saiss, Allah

Midfielders: Ounahi, Azzouzi

Forwards: Ziyech, Diaz, Seghir, En-Nesyri

Prediction

Considering the change in venue to Morocco, Congo's chances of securing any points from this fixture appear slim.

Morocco's superior quality and depth in their squad will likely prove too much for Congo to handle.

Our Prediction: Congo 0-3 Morocco
