France Betting Preview
France finished in 1st place in Group F putting up seven points. After playing to a 0-0 draw against Jamaica, France has knocked off Brazil and Panama so far in the World Cup. On Wednesday, August 2nd, France gave up three goals to Panama, but the offense scored six goals on the way to the victory. Diani had quite the game scoring three goals, including two goals from the penalty spot. France had 72 percent of the possession and 10 shots on target. Wendie Renard and Eugenie Le Sommer both were rested in the last game, but they will move back to the starting lineup in this game. In this game, France is going to need to put pressure on the Morocco defense and try to get that first goal early in hopes they can open the floodgates.
Morocco Betting Preview
Morocco finished in second place having picked up six points in Group H. Morocco lost the first game to Germany 6-0 and they looked to be in a lot of trouble. In the last two games, Morocco was able to knock off South Korea 1-0 and in the last game against Colombia, they also won 1-0. In the last game they only 40 percent of the possession but they did have six shots on target. This game is going to be all about the defense and that is going to come down to players like Nesrryne El Chad, Nouhaila Ben Zina andHanane Ait El Haj.
Shane’s Free Pick
In the first game against Germany, Morocco gave up six goals and they are going to really struggle in this game with the defense. France is going to score four or five goals here, and Morocco is going to have no chance to keep up here. I don’t think Morocco is going to even score on goal here. This is going to be a blowout victory. Back France -2,5 goals to cash here.
