Portugal vs Morocco at FIFA World Cup 2022 – Match prediction, preview, head-to-head and lineups

This weekend, the quarterfinal matches for the FIFA World Cup 2022 will resume. In a crucial knockout game on Saturday at the Al Thumama Stadium, Morocco takes against Fernando Santos’ outstanding Portugal squad. Morocco has made a strong impression in the FIFA World Cup with a victory over Spain. One of the biggest upsets of the campaign so far was pulled off by Morocco. With their current state of fitness, the North African giants have a chance to go down in history this year. On the other side, Portugal has solidified themselves as the overwhelming favourite for the FIFA World Cup 2022. The Selecao will play Morocco this weekend in an attempt to recreate their incredible 6-1 triumph over Switzerland.

Going into this game, Portugal is in tremendous form and has some outstanding players at their disposal.
