On Wednesday, France and Morocco will face off in the semifinals of the 2022 FIFA World Cup at Al Bayt Stadium. France wants to win the World Cup twice, and they’ve been having a great time defending their title.
Les Blues faced England in the quarterfinals, where Aurelien Tchouameni’s and Olivier Giroud’s goals gave them a hard-fought 2-1 victory after they defeated Poland in the last 16 comfortably. As they continue their quest to join Brazil and Italy as the only teams to successfully defend a World Cup title, Les Blues will aim for victory this week.
Morocco, on the other hand, has been the positive story of the 2022 World Cup thus far, with the African team defying expectations to reach the semifinals. Youssef En-Nesyri of Sevilla scored the only goal of the game just before the break in their most recent tournament victory, a 1-0 victory over Portugal.
The Atlas Lions, the first African team to reach the World Cup semifinals, are putting on their best performance yet on the international stage. When they play this week, they will try to defeat yet another European powerhouse.

France vs Morocco Prediction :
France may have the most potent attack of any remaining teams in the competition, as evidenced by their recent run of consecutive victories. They should not underestimate their opponents, who have already surpassed expectations and are favorites for the game on Wednesday.
Morocco is probably the most motivated team in the competition right now, having won four of their five games and drawn one. The Africans’ success on the international stage has been largely due to their determined defense, but this week they could lose to a superior team.
