Morocco vs South Africa: AFCON 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

The last round of 16 fixture in the Africa Cup of Nations will occur at Stade de San Pedro on Tuesday night, featuring Morocco against South Africa. The victor advances to the quarter-finals, where they will meet the winner between Cape Verde and Mauritania, who play a day earlier.

Morocco, initially seen as top contenders, seek their second AFCON title. After a strong start with a 3-0 win over Tanzania, they stumbled to a 1-1 draw against DR Congo before securing a 1-0 victory over Zambia in the group stage, finishing with seven points. They face South Africa next, whom they’ve encountered twice in qualifiers, each team winning once. Despite recent quarter-final appearances, Morocco aims to replicate their 1976 triumph. Coach Walid Regragui returns to the touchline after a ban lifted by CAF, adding to their determination for success.

South Africa secured a spot in the round of 16, finishing second in Group E with four points and a better goal difference than third-placed Namibia. After a 2-0 loss to Mali, they rebounded with a 4-0 win over Namibia and a goalless draw against Tunisia. With two quarter-final appearances in their last three AFCONs, they aim to repeat that success against Morocco. South Africa holds a slight advantage in head-to-head matchups, winning three out of eight meetings. However, Morocco won their last AFCON encounter, though South Africa has won twice in five overall encounters.
