Morocco will lock horns against Liberia at the Stade Mohammed V in the group stage of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Monday.

Morocco kicked off their campaign with a 2-1 win against South Africa on Friday. Strikes from Youssef En-Nesyri and Ayoub El Kaabi helped them come from behind against Bafana Bafana.

Meanwhile, this will be the first game of the qualifying campaign for Liberia, who were set to face Zimbabwe in their campaign opener.

However, the Warriors were suspended from the competition after the country's football federation was dissolved by the government.
