Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
After outplaying Mane-less Senegal in October friendly, Morocco will be looking to retain top position in the AFCON qualifiers Group E when they host Central Africa at Stade Mohamed V in Casablanca on Friday. The Atlas Lions have been impressive at the back in the qualifiers, with the team eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet of the process. The good news for the hosts is that Chelsea ace Hakim Ziyech has overcome his injury.
The former Ajax man provided two assists for his teammates in the 4-1 win over Sheffield United, and, no doubt, he is going to prove a handful for the opposition defenders in Friday’s qualifier. Inter full-back Achraf Hakimi will be yet another man to watch in the home team. Central Africa, on the other hand, are not regarded as good travellers, and seeing that they failed to impress in a 2-0 loss at Mauritania, we are tempted to put our money on the Group E leaders.
