Morocco will go head to head with Comoros in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) encounter on Friday.

Kick-off is at 6:00 pm CAT.

The Group C match is set to be played at the home of the Cameroonian senior national team, Stade Omnisport Ahmadou Ahidjo in Yaounde, Cameroon.

Morocco find themselves placed second on the Group C standings and a win over Comoros will take them to the top of the log if the result between Ghana and Gabon goes their way.

Sofiane Boufal, who grabbed a late winning goal for Morocco against Ghana, will be keen to produce a similar performance when he faces Comoros.

Therefore, the Coelacanths are placed third on the group standings and they are hoping to cause one of the biggest shocks in this year’s tournament by defeating Morocco.

El Fardou Ben Nabouhane is the player to watch out for in this Comoros side having scored 15 goals in 28 matches for the Coelacanths.

The last meeting between Morocco and Comoros was on 16 October 2018.

The two teams drew 2-2 in the 2019 AFCON qualifier which was played at the Stade International Saïd Mohamed Cheikh de Mitsamiouli in Comoros.
