Morocco and Comoros go into their second match under pressure. A valuable 1-0 win over Ghana gave Morocco the perfect start to their group campaign. And now the Atlas Lions know another win over debutants Comoros would mean an early qualification to the knockout stages.

Sofiane Boufal scored Morocco’s winner against the Black Stars and will be once more the target man for Vahid Halilodzic who still awaits fitness green light for a number of his stars who missed the opener.

Morocco coach Vahid Halilhodzic is very happy with the first win and does not hide his delight.

“We had an important win in a tough game against Ghana. That win served to boost the mood of the team and the players. We come to this competition with a lot of ambition. It has been a long time since Morocco won the AFCON title. We are here to do our best and we are optimistic to make the Moroccan people happy.”

A 1-0 defeat in their first ever AFCON appearance against Gabon was hurtful for coach Amir Abdou and his boys, but they proved they are not the team to underestimate in such a competition.
