Morocco defeated North African rivals Tunisia 1-0 in an international friendly match played at the Stade de Marrakech on Tuesday evening.

The Atlas Lions claiming a second successive win in the FIFA international break, with an own goal from Hamza Younes leading the hosts to a narrow win.

The Xanthi FC forward directing the ball into the back of his own net with 14 minutes on the clock, to the delight of those packed inside the stadium, as Herve Renard's men held on to record a hard-fought win.

Tunisia slumping to a second successive defeat after they suffered a loss to Africa Cup of Nations champions Cameroon over the past weekend.

The players will now return to their respective club sides with 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers next on the agenda.
