The two nations, who have met five times already, meet in Wednesday night’s unprecedented World Cup semi-final, to this day, the Atlas Lions have never beaten the Blues.
On the other hand, France reached the semi-finals of the World Cup alongside Argentina, crowned in 1978 and 1986, and Croatia, third in 1998 and finalist in 2018, was no surprise in itself.
Though, after beating Belgium (2-0) and defeating Croatia (0-0) in the first round, then Spain (penalties) and finally Portugal (1-0), Morocco invited themselves to the big tables, which is even more so. unexpected.
Nevertheless, the presence of lions at this stage of the game is not without reason, and Morocco, like the other three survivors, can dream of a world title. it needs to keep the dream of beating the Blues alive, something he has never done before.
The task may prove particularly difficult for the Moroccan selection, which has eliminated three world football heavyweights from the competition but is not impossible.
The Atlas Lions have several injured players who may not all be available (Aguerd, Mazraoui, Saïss, etc.). As with the other semi-finalists, fatigue was present and many wondered if Morocco had been guided into the goal-play scenario, something that has never happened in Qatar.
