On December 9, the match of the 1/4 finals of the World Cup will take place, in which the national team of Morocco will play with the national team of Portugal. The forecast for this match is given by a well-known journalist, football capper and analyst Alexander Vishnevsky.The Moroccan national team sensationally passed the Spanish national team in the 1/8 finals, becoming the fourth African team in history to reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup, and now it can become the first to reach the semifinals.
Although it will be extremely difficult to do this, given that the North Africans have already jumped over their heads, leaving the top teams of Belgium and Spain out of the tournament. After all, this team is not strong enough to create another sensation and knock out a more skilled opponent. There may not be enough strength for this, given the tight calendar of the tournament, and they actually have to play with one squad. And most importantly, they may not have enough emotions that have been completely squandered.Alexander Vishnevsky does not expect a stubborn equal fight in the upcoming match, clearly seeing the Portuguese as favorites, believing that the nominal guests will win here already at the end of the main time.
At the same time, according to the expert, it does not matter at all whether Cristiano Ronaldo, whose sister calls on him to leave the team for disrespecting his person, will take part in this meeting. Nevertheless, even without Ronaldo, the Portuguese national team scored 6 goals against the Swiss at the previous stage, and this has not happened for many years. A fairly high coefficient is proposed for this.
