Morocco have it all to do in Group B where they have been drawn against the two European giants of Spain and Portugal. Almost everybody expects the Europeans to go through easily, and you would be a brave person to bet against them.
Morocco have really got nothing to lose though which could actually be of benefit to them, releasing a lot of pre-tournament tension and nerves. The North Africans performed impressively in qualifying and finished first, unbeaten. This will definitely give them confidence going into their tough group.
Morocco begin their campaign against Iran and if they are to have any hope of going through, this is a must-win game. They then face Portugal before finishing against Spain.
In quite a coincidence, Morocco have played against Portugal at the World Cup before. In Mexico 1986, Morocco defeated Portugal 3-1 and this victory meant that they became the first African country to reach the knockout stages of a World Cup. Could history repeat itself?
In this Morocco World Cup 2018 odds article we will have a look at what Morocco World Cup odds are currently being offered. This will include looking at odds for the group bets as well as odds for Morocco to win World Cup 2018. Unsurprisingly, the odds on Morocco winning 2018 World Cup are wide to say the least.
Morocco World Cup 2018 Prediction
Unfortunately for Morocco fans, we simply cannot see them progressing from their tough group. Portugal won Euro 2016 two years ago and Spain won the World Cup just eight years ago. They are two outstanding teams who will probably go very deep into the competition.
We think Morocco can beat Iran, but we simply cannot see them stopping Spain. Their match against Portugal is the one which Morocco could pick something up from, though we think Portugal will have too much for Morocco.

Morocco are not going to be the favourites going into the World Cup, not by a long shot, and the odds reflect this. A more discerned bet might pay off but ultimately, Morocco just find themselves in a very tough group. Morocco will need luck and to be playing at their maximum capability to cause a stir at this summer’s tournament. We don’t see it happening.
