Morocco will be hoping to pick-up their second win in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign when they host Comoros in a Group B match on Saturday at the Stade Mohamed V.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h00.

Morocco are currently second in Group B on three points from two matches after losing their first qualifying match 1-0 to Cameroon before bouncing back with an impressive 3-0 win over Malawi thanks to goals from Hakim Ziyech and a brace from Youssef En-Nesyri.

Cameroon currently top Group B with seven points from three matches after beating Malawi 1-0 on Friday night, so Morocco will be gunning for a win to remain in touching distance of the Indominable Lions.

Comoros, on the other hand, are bottom of Group B with one point to their name following an opening day 1-0 defeat Malawi followed by a surprise 1-1 draw against Cameroon.

Comoros form on the international stage has not been great and have gone their last six matches without a win to their name, but have only suffered two defeats in that run and four draws.

This will be the first meeting between Morocco and Comoros, but the North Africans will be favourites to walk away victorious.
