It’s Matchday 2 for Group B and Portugal face Morocco after a dramatic draw with group favourites Spain, as Ronaldo scored his 51st career hattrick. Morocco are still looking for their first win of the campaign after an own goal saw the Islamic Republic of Iran claim a victory over the North African side. Morocco showed that they have attacking ability with Nordin Amrabat and Younes Belhanda and a sturdy defence with Medhi Benatia at the heart but fell at the last hurdle to Iran. Portugal showed their defensive abilities against Spain but still conceded three goals and could have conceded more. Goncalo Guedes squandered a couple of good counter attacks through his youthful inexperience and may be swapped for Ricardo Quaresma, Andre Silva or Joao Mario. At the back, Portugal may not make any changes but in the midfield there may be an alteration with Bruno Fernandes making way. Portugal are clear favourites to win this game and should do so with the class at their disposal and it does not get much classier than their hero and captain, Cristiano Ronaldo.
This should be an easy game for Portugal and once they break the deadlock they should cruise home afterwards with the attacking talent they have. Although Morocco do have some good attacking players, they should be overwhelmed by the Portugese defenders and stopped in their tracks.
