Morocco will be entering their fifth World Cup in June after a great qualification campaign in which they topped their group with an unbeaten record. This will be Morocco’s’ first World Cup outing in twenty years.
In Mexico 1986, Morocco became the first African country to progress to the knockout stages of a World Cup after a memorable 3-1 victory against Portugal. Strangely enough, Morocco were drawn in the same group as Portugal for this summer’s tournament. Morocco will also face Iran and Spain.
It’s not the most encouraging of groups for Morocco, admittedly. Spain and Portugal are firm favourite to progress from Group B and Morocco will have to churn out the performances of their lives to stand a chance against the two Iberian giants.
In this article we will take a look at what the bookmakers currently think of Morocco’s chances. We will look at the odds on Morocco winning World Cup 2018 and some of the other Morocco World Cup 2018 odds more generally, before moving on to our own predictions for Morocco’s chances at the World Cup.

Morocco World Cup 2018 Chances and World Cup 2018 Morocco Fixtures
Morocco’s first match is the opening fixture of Group B on the 15th June where they will face Iran. The game will take place in St Petersburg and if Morocco have any hopes of qualifying, they simply must win three points in this encounter.
They will then face Portugal on the 20th June. A draw in this match is not out of the realms of possibility, though it will be difficult.
Realistically, Morocco are going to struggle in their last game against Spain and anything other than a resounding Spanish victory would be hugely surprising.
It is going to be difficult to say the least for Morocco to progress from their group, but if they do succeed, it will be a marvellous achievement. And at the end of the day, anything can happen in football.
We genuinely hope Morocco cause an upset and progress far in the tournament but truthfully, we cannot see it happening. Still, we will be more than happy to be proved wrong!
