Morocco World Cup Betting | Odds & Predictions

We have a range of World Cup odds and picks available across every team, group and game of the tournament in Qatar. Here is how we think Morocco will fare at the World Cup, and which betting odds are currently standing out to us.

Morocco will be making their sixth appearance at the World Cup Finals, but they have been perennial strugglers. After making their debut in 1970, they have been eliminated from the group stage on four occasions.

Perhaps they will take inspiration from their 1986 campaign when they became the first African team to reach the Round of 16 before they were knocked out by West Germany.

Morocco Odds and Betting Tips

Morocco don’t have an easy group by any means, but both Belgium and Croatia have question marks hanging over them.

Should one of the two European nations fail, Morocco will fancy their chances of being the ones to take advantage.

Morocco to win the World Cup - 200/1

Morocco are big odds to succeed in Qatar

World Cup 2022

Morocco is one of the unheralded sides in the competition, and so if they were to win the World Cup, it would be one of the biggest international football shocks. Perhaps only Greece’s surprise triumph at Euro 2004 would come close to topping it.

Winning the World Cup would send Morocco into a frenzy, but it seems highly unlikely. Judging by past performances at the World Cup, it could be a struggle from the outset.

William Hill is dishing up odds of 200/1, which perhaps shows how little confidence bookmakers have in Morocco to create a stir in the tournament.

While expectation levels will be low for Morocco, it will be hoped they can embark on a run and ruffle a few feathers. In Group F, Croatia and Belgium could hold the cards for qualification.

World Cup 2022

Well, Morocco may just fancy edging out Croatia to the runner-up spot, and perhaps they could defy the odds. Currently, bet365 is offering a rather tasty price of 7/1 for Morocco to reach the quarter-finals.

The main fear for Morocco is where the goals are going to come from as they don’t have a natural out-and-out striker. While En-Nesyri will look to be a nuisance, he is available at 80/1 with bet365 to clinch the Golden Boot award which is very long by all accounts.

Morocco 2022 World Cup Squad

The squad has been named, so here is a look at the players who will represent Morocco at Qatar 2022.

  • Goalkeepers: Yassine Bounou (Sevilla), Munir El Kajoui (Al Wehda), Ahmed Reda Tagnaouti (Wydad Casablanca).
  • Defenders: Nayef Aguerd (West Ham United), Yahia Attiat Allah (Wydad Casablanca), Badr Benoun (Qatar SC), Achraf Dari (Stade Brest), Jawad El Yamiq (Real Valladolid), Achraf Hakimi (Paris Saint-Germain), Noussair Mazraoui (Bayern Munich), Romain Saiss (Besiktas).
  • Midfielders: Sofyan Amrabat (Fiorentina), Selim Amallah (Standard Liege), Bilal El Khannouss (Racing Genk), Yahya Jabrane (Wydad Casablanca), Azzedine Ounahi (Angers), Abdelhamid Sabiri (Sampdoria).
  • Forwards: Zakaria Aboukhlal (Toulouse), Soufiane Boufal (Angers), Ilias Chair (Queens Park Rangers), Walid Cheddira (Bari), Youssef En-Nesyri (Sevilla), Abde Ezzalzouli (Osasuna), Abderrazak Hamdallah (Al Ittihad), Amine Harit (Olympique Marseille), Hakim Ziyech (Chelsea).

While there may be a few familiar faces in the Morocco squad, such as skipper Romain Saiss, who plies his trade for Besiktas, the star player is undoubtedly Paris Saint-Germain right-back Achraf Hakimi. The 23-year-old is renowned for his blistering pace, so he always likes to venture forward and whip delicious crosses into the box. He could therefore prove to be a useful attacking outlet. From a defensive perspective, Hakimi boasts good positional sense, and he reads the game well. He will need to be as he could be kept very busy during the group stages.

Meanwhile, Youssef En-Nesyri is one of two Sevilla players that will board the plane to Qatar. To a certain extent, En-Nesyri is rather underrated as he is very direct and he could be a handful of defenders. En-Nesyri is probably the biggest attacking threat, and he will be looking to improve on his showing at the Africa Cup of Nations where he netted just once before Morocco crashed out at the quarter-final stages following defeat to Egypt.

Verdict: How Far Will Morocco Go at 2022 World Cup?

The World Cup generally hasn’t been kind to Morocco in the past, and it seems hardly likely they will set this tournament on fire. Group F is laden with danger and Morocco could be the fall guy.

Judging by past performances, Morocco is unlikely to end its habit of being eliminated in the group stages. While William Hill is pricing Morocco at 2/1 to qualify from Group F, an early exit seems more likely.
