Match: Egypt v Morocco

Egypt – Aiming to the top

A slow start for Carlos Queiroz team was followed by steady and convincing results. After losing 1-0 to Nigeria, Egypt has not conceded a goal, beating Guinea Bissau and Sudan, before needing penalties to oust Cote d’Ivoire.

The Pharaohs would hope their superstar Mohamed salah to be in form once again as they know the mission against Morocco would not be an easy one to face.

Morocco - Long awaited dream

Vahid Halilhodzic side know the derby is one important step towards the title they are chasing since winning their only trophy back in 1976.

Having won three games and drawn one in this tournament, Achraf Hakimi and teammates produced some very good performances to reach the quarterfinals in style.
