Morocco will look to move one step closer to winning their first Africa Cup of Nations title since 1976 when they take on Malawi at Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo on Tuesday evening.
Morocco defeated both Ghana and Comoros in the group stages, while sharing the spoils with Gabon, and the bookies see them as hot favourites to advance to the quarter-finals. Chelsea ace Hakim Ziyech has been left out of the squad, while Sevilla attacker Youssef En Nesyri is back to contention after recovering from coronavirus.
QPR midfielder Ilias Chair is unlikely to feature against Malawi after limping off with injury in the 2-2 draw with Gabon.
The Flames, on the other hand, booked their place in the AFCON playoffs thanks to a goalless draw with star-studded Senegal. Malawi, though, will have a mountain to climb in Tuesday’s clash with Morocco, who are seen as one of the main candidates to win the tournament.
