As the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying group stage fixtures come to an end in Africa, Morocco take on Guinea at Mohamed V Stadium looking to maintain their 100% record.

The hosts have already secured a place in the final playoff round thanks to a flawless display in the qualifying campaign, having conceded just one goal in five games.

Guinea are third in the Group I standings and their only loss of the campaign was against Morocco. They played out draws in their remaining four games. Morocco recorded a 3-0 win over Sudan on Saturday while Guinea played out a goalless draw against Guinea-Bissau on Friday.

Morocco vs Guinea Prediction

Morocco's form makes them strong favorites here. While they have already qualified for the final playoffs, we don't expect them to go easy in this fixture and they should be able to bag at least a couple of goals here.

Guinea do not stand a chance against the well-drilled hosts.

Prediction: Morocco 3-0 Guinea
