How to Watch France vs Morocco

Viewers can watch Tuesday’s France vs Morocco World Cup last 16 clash on Fox Network and Telemundo in the US at 07:00 am ET.

France Knock Out Brazil

It was a slow starter for the French, who could manage only a 0-0 draw in their opener against Jamaica, but they bounced back well, winning their next two to top the group with ease. Their decisive result came in game 2 when, up against the highly-rated Brazilians, they won 2-1 with goals from Eugenie Le Sommer and Wendie Renard.

They needed a win over Panama in game 3 to clinch their place in the knockout phase and did so comfortably – winning 6-3 thanks to goals from Kadidiatou Diani (3), Maelle Lakrar, Lea Le Garrec, and Vicki Becho.

On Form French

While French coach Herve Renard will be happy with his team’s overall performances, he will be slightly concerned by the three goals conceded in that third game. In order to go deep in this competition, that defense will need to be tighter and more organized.

But this France team knows what it takes to do well, having qualified for the quarters in the last three World Cups and getting to the semifinals in last summer’s European Championships – losing out only to Germany in the semifinals. Their current form is good too, having lost just once in their last 11 games.

Moroccan Miracle

This competition got off to the worst possible start for Morocco when they were thrashed 6-0 in their opening game. At that stage, a place in the knockout phase looked a million miles away but, just like the French, they responded magnificently by recording wins in games 2 and 3.

Their 1-0 win on Matchday 2 over South Korea was outstanding given the circumstances – the goal coming from Ibtissam Jraïdi – and set them up perfectly for a shot at the knockout phase when they faced Colombia in game 3.

Massive Win Over Colombia

Despite starting their final group game in third place, Morocco knew if they could beat Colombia and if South Korea could do them a favor against Germany, a place in the knockout phase was theirs. As it transpired, both things happened with the Koreans getting a 1-1 draw and Anissa Lahmari grabbing the goal in a 1-0 win over the Colombians.

It’s been a magical run for Morocco – ranked 72 in the world by FIFA – but the big question is, do they have one more record-breaking miracle in them?

France vs Morocco Prediction

The Moroccans have been on an amazing journey but face by far their biggest test yet against the talented and experienced French. Given how effective France has been at tournament soccer in recent seasons, this looks like a big ask for the north Africans, who now need to perform another miracle.

There is clearly little value in betting on the France win but it does look likely to be a game with goals, with the French having scored eight goals so far and the Moroccans having conceded six.

France vs Morocco Pick: Over 3.5 goals (+120) & Le Sommer first goalscorer (+280) at DraftKings.
