Morocco take on the visitors Liberia in the round 6 match of Africa Cup of Nations Qualification. The match will be played on Saturday, September 9th at Stade Adrar (Agadir).
This group seemed like a mere formality from the start, with only three national teams competing: Morocco, Liberia, and South Africa. It was evident right away that one team would be the weak link and miss out on the continental championship, and that team is Liberia. Morocco comfortably outclassed Liberia with a 2-0 victory in an away game. Although the Lions have nothing at stake in terms of tournament progression, there's no reason for them to take this match lightly. It's essentially a friendly sparring match against a modest opponent. The hosts are undoubtedly capable of securing a comfortable victory with a margin of a couple of goals based on their class.

Liberia are an overtly weak team, and they didn't get lucky with the draw at all. To put it in European terms, it's like Moldova being placed in a group with Spain and France, where two out of the three teams would progress... So, Liberia was doomed to failure in this qualification from the start. Their overall results are quite poor, losing in extended streaks where they don't even manage to secure draws. It's hard to believe that they can do anything against Morocco, regardless of the fact that this match no longer holds any tournament significance for the hosts. Clearly, the semifinalists of the previous World Cup will play this match with full commitment.
The odds for a straightforward Morocco win are predictably not very high in this scenario. You might consider placing a more substantial bet on this match. I believe that there won't be any goals from the guests, and as for the hosts, they will likely score a couple of goals, at least based on their class. So, I would go with the option: Handicap (-2) on the hosts. This should provide a decent return at a minimum.
Prediction for the match: Morocco to win with -2.0 handicap.
