Guwahati: Les Bleus will play their sixth world cup semi-final while Morocco will play their first semi-final tonight.
Defending champions France look to be in great form since the beginning of the FIFA World Cup 2022. With the exception of the Tunisia match, they have won all the matches in the tournament so far. Morocco became the first African nation to reach the world cup semi-finals after upsetting Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal 1-0.
France, unlike many other defending champions in the past, have looked to be in great touch for two consecutive world cups. They have two players – Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud – among the top contenders for the Golden Boot. Giroud is also the all-time highest goal scorer for France. On paper, it should not be difficult for France to beat Morocco and reach the finals for the second time in a row
In the quarterfinals, the Atlas Lions’ determined second half effort added Portugal to their list of European victims. Following their victories on penalties over Belgium and Spain in Qatar 2022, Morocco had another historic day in their last match. They also have a near-home advantage against France. Their extremely defensive strategy has worked well for them so far.
The France vs Morocco match will be played on December 15 at 00:30 AM (Indian time) in the Al Bayt Stadium, Al Khor.
