PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The second round in the quartet B will open cup at Luzhniki Stadium, the central Russian Sports venue. Here the defending Euro champion Portugal will meet one of the representative of the black continent Morocco. Will the hosts prove their advantage over the guests?

Portugal got their World Cup campaign underway with a dramatic, hard-fought 3-3 draw against 2010 champions Spain last Friday. Cristiano Ronaldo bagged a hat-trick, including a fabulous 88th-minute free-kick goal, to earn his side a point and make it a night to forget for Spain goalkeeper David de Gea. Portugal now sit joint-second alongside Spain and two points off group leaders Iran.

Morocco, who are making their first WC finals appearance since 1998, saw a 18-game unbeaten run in all competitions come to an end on Friday with a 1-0 loss to Iran in the Group B opener. A last-gasp headed own goal by Aziz Bouhaddouz handed the Iranians their first WC victory in 20 years.

Possible line-ups:
Portugal: Rui Patricio; Cedric, Pepe, Jose Fonte, Raphael Guerreiro; William, Joao Moutinho, Bernardo Silva, Joao Mario; Andre Silva, Cristiano Ronaldo

Morocco: Monir El Kajoui; Achraf Hakimi, Ghanem Saiss, Mehdi Benatia, Hamza Mendyl; Karim El Ahmadi, Hakim Ziyach, Mbark Boussoufa, Younes Belhanda, Noureddine Amrabat; Khalid Boutaib

This clash will be just the second-ever meeting between these sides and the first since 1986, when Morocco beat Portugal 3-1 in the group stages of the WC, held in México.

Portugal managed a positive result in a frenzied game against Spain and seek to calm things down with a victory against Morocco in their second Group B match. Morocco had a strong defensive line within a whole qualifying tournaments and in the World Cup’s opening game too except of Aziz Bouhaddouz’s own goal. A defeat against Portugal would effectively equal elimination for Morocco. We believe and expect Cristiano Ronaldo’s genius will destabilize the rival’s defense and prove who is the favorite of the second game. We predict the home side’s victory with a good coefficient of 1.65.
