It will be an all-North African event at Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo as Egypt and Morocco battle for a spot in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals on Sunday.

The Pharaohs needed penalties to see off Ivory Coast in the final match after the two teams were undefeated in 120 minutes of football. Mohamed Salah tried his best to score the winning goal and send his side into the quarterfinals.

Achraf Hakimi is the star of the show for Morocco in the previous round. The Atlas Lions needed to go from behind against Malawi, who took a shock lead in their Round of 16 match. Youssef El Nesyri equalized shortly after half-time before Hakimi put the Atlas Lions past with a stunning free-kick.

Prediction Egypt vs Morocco

Egypt are one of the tightest teams in the league and this defensive tenacity will be tested against an open-ended Morocco.

Historical head-to-head also raises the stakes involved, and both groups of players will likely go to great lengths to secure progress to the last four. Egypt is getting better day by day while Morocco is one of the strongest teams so far.

The Pharaohs may be a bit more popular, but Morocco is the more consistent team throughout the tournament. Even so, we’re helping Atlas Lions scale with a tight win.
