Morocco have been in a thrilling form in 2018 and they will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Iran in the opening match of their World Cup campaign. French tactician Herve Renard is doing a great job with the African side and it has to be noted that his men defeated Slovakia in their penultimate warm-up game. A man to watch in Herve Renard’s team will be Ajax star Ziyech, who could prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Iran, on the other hand, were impressive at the back in the qualifiers and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Friday’s football match. A low-scoring affair is on the cards, but given Morocco’s thrilling form, we are tempted to put our money on the Atlas Lions. The two teams meet for the first time ever at the showpiece tournament.
