Morocco has two wins and sits atop what was considered the most difficult group in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. Their final opponent in Group D play, South Africa, comes in feeling that they have steadily improved throughout their first two matches and that shocking upset of the group leaders will be in the cards, according to Sports Star.
In fact, a win would give Bafana Bafana at shot at topping the group themselves, and give them a potentially easier pathway through the knockout stage and at least a chance at their first AFCON title since 1996, when they won their lone championship, in a match that will live stream from Egypt.

The game has an added layer of intrigue, after Morocco Coach Herve Renard — the only man to coach two different countries to the AFCON title — revealed that he has held discussions with South Africa’s football federation about that country’s coaching position as well, according to Goal. But Renard may have priced himself out of the job.
“This was in the past,” Renard said. “Of course, I am not cheap.”
British Coach Stuart Baxter now fills the South African coaching job, and says that his team is ready for the Moroccan challenge.
“We feel we’re settling more and more into a good rhythm and we believe we can win the game,” Baxter said on Sunday. “The players are quite confident and they know the preparations having been going quite well.”
