Group B, FIFA World Cup 2018 match | Match Day -5

FIFA World Cup 2018

POR vs MOR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

The second bout of the group stages begun and it is time for Portugal facing off Morocco and by all means this is a match Morocco needs to win since their own goal against Iran saw them miss out on their deserving one point. With their loss, Iran became the only team in their group to have three points and they are placed over Spain and Portugal. And if Morocco fails to win this match they would be eliminated from the World Cup despite whatever the result is of the Iran and Spain match that would be played later.

However drawing their first match against one of the favourites Spain, Portugal would want to collect three points in this game. It will be on the shoulder of the Cristiano Ronaldo who tore apart the Spanish defence to secure one point from their opening game with a hattrick. He would want to repeat his heroics in this game as well so that Portugal can contend for a top two position in the group. Now that Iran has got three points and if they can draw against Spain they would keep their place on the group to go to the next round.  But the task won’t be easy because of the poor defense line Portugal is having left them vulnerable against Spain as they scored two goals in less than five minutes. It would have been Spain’s game but the ending moment’s free kick from Cristiano Ronaldo kept the hope alive for all Portuguese.

Morocco would blame their luck for being clubbed in the same group with Portugal, Spain and Iran. Iran may be the weakest of the three and to go to the next round Morocco needed to win that game at any cost, even drawing wouldn’t have helped but to their utmost surprise their own goal stole away their World Cup dream and now they would be facing against Portugal and Spain and if only they can beat these two teams they can go to the next round. The price seems to be too high for the Moroccans if they are to qualify for the next round.

This FIFA World Cup 2018, Group B, 2nd match is to be played at Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow at 1300 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 7 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

Important updates:
01:19 pm –

It’s no shame conceding 3 goals against a formidable and a talented opponent like Spain. But the reigning European Champions must shore up their defense to have any chance of traveling far in the world cup.

Once again, Cristiano Ronaldo will be the key man for Fernando Santos’ Portugal, while we are expecting some changes in defense for the European outfit for the Group B cash, while Joao Mario and Ricardo Quaresma are pushing for starts after being benched last time out.
02:09 pm
We have changed our squad a bit – We are expecting a change at the right back after Nordin Amrabat suffered a concussion in the last game. His brother Sofyan Ambrabat is expected to fill in at his place.
03:40 pm, Confirmation – First-choice wing-back Nabil Dirar has been ruled out from this match due to a knee injury and stand-in Nordin Amrabat, usually a winger, will miss this game because of the concussion.

 

POR vs MOR Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Portugal drew 3-3 with Spain in their opening match of the 2018 World Cup, with Cristiano Ronaldo netting a stunning hat-trick. Morocco is on the back foot in Group B after suffering a dramatic late 1-0 defeat to Iran on Friday. Morocco needs a positive result on Tuesday to have any realistic chance of prolonging their stay in Russia.
