France is only 2 wins away from becoming the first team since Brazil in 1962 to retain the World Cup, but standing in the way of Les Bleus is a stubborn Morocco side. Morocco has become the first African nation to reach the semifinals of a World Cup following its 1-0 win over Portugal in the quarterfinals, while France reached this stage courtesy of a 2-1 win against England.

The Atlas Lions topped a group featuring Belgium, Croatia and Canada before beating Spain in the last 16, while France will be looking to take confidence from its 2018 World Cup triumph in Russia.

France to qualify for the final (-440)

France managed to beat England despite having arguably been second-best for most of the game and losing the shot count 16-8, but that is often characteristic of champions. Coach Didier Deschamps has been there and done it before with a similar crop of players, leading France to glory in Russia 4 years ago, and the team should again reach the final in Qatar.

Morocco’s strength at this tournament has been its resolute defense but France has the offensive quality to break down the Atlas Lions. Kylian Mbappe is in the hunt for the Golden Boot with 5  goals and 2 assists, Antoine Griezmann has emerged as a key creative outlet in this tournament, assisting both goals against England, while Olivier Giroud’s physicality through the middle is also a big advantage for France.

Under 2.5 goals (-156)

Although France should progress, it may not have things all its own way and Morocco can be expected to keep the game tight. Walid Regragui’s team have allowed a goal only once all tournament — against Canada in the group stage — and recorded key shutouts against Belgium, Spain and Portugal.

Morocco may not have what it takes to shut out France entirely and the potential absence of defender Romain Saiss would be a huge setback, but Morocco can nonetheless limit the damage and under 2.5 goals looks a good play.

Theo Hernandez to be booked (+350)

Jules Kounde performed well against England on the right side of France’s defense, limiting the impact of Phil Foden, while on the left Theo Hernandez was more attacking but also more erratic. Hernandez likes to get forward for France but can leave space behind him to exploit and he got caught out on occasions against the Three Lions, picking up a yellow card when giving away the second penalty for England.

England missed the crucial kick that would have made it 2-2, but Hernandez still looks a vulnerable part of France’s defense to target and could again pick up a yellow card against Morocco when faced with the threat of Hakim Ziyech and Achraf Hakimi.
