The South Africa national team will face the Morocco national team in 5th round of the 2023 African Cup Qualifiers on Saturday, June 17, 2023. Live streaming of South Africa vs Morocco, preview, lineup predictions, and how to watch the match live broadcast, can be watched in this article.
The home team South Africa who currently has 4 points and is ranked 2nd after 4 matches will host the visiting team Morocco who has 6 points leading the group and the two have pulled the boat to continue in group K at the FNB stadium in Round 5 match African Cup qualifiers on 17/06/2023.
According to the draw, Group K of the Africa Cup of Nations qualification round consisted of 4 teams Morocco, South Africa, Liberia and Zimbabwe. However, at the last minute, Zimbabwe asked to withdraw from participating so that only South Africa, Liberia and Morocco remained in the race for 2 further tickets.
Through the last matches, the South African national team has shown quite an impressive performance with 2 wins and 1 draw in the last 3 matches. However, this team still has many weaknesses in attack and defense.
Meanwhile, the Moroccan national team is in very good form with 3 consecutive wins in the last 3 matches. This is a team that has a strong attacking game and has a lot of technical players.
At the moment, Morocco has only played 2 matches but instead is ranked 1st in the standings with 6 points. Next is South Africa with 3 points, below is Liberia with only 1 point. In this round, Liberia took a break, while South Africa and Morocco competed against each other.
Since qualifying for the semifinals of the 2022 World Cup, and only losing to France, the Moroccan team has emerged as Africa’s number 1 team. Morocco also made history as the first African team to qualify for the semifinals. In Qatar, Morocco not only drew with Croatia, Spain but also beat two strong teams, namely Portugal and Belgium.
The ‘Lion Atlas’ team has many world-class stars in the squad such as Yassine Bounou, Achraf Hakimi, Sofyan Amrabat, Hakim Ziyech, Youssef En-Nesyri.
On the other hand, South Africa is only a weak shadow compared to when they hosted the 2010 World Cup. The current strength of South Africa is also not highly rated. Their shining star is only Lyle Foster, a player who is a substitute at Burnley. Statistically, South Africa still lost head-to-head with Morocco.
