MOROCCO – COMOROS. The Atlas Lions qualified without shaking on this second day of group C of CAN 2022. The Moroccans largely dominated the Comorians for whom qualification seems to be moving away.
The Atlas Lions coach came looking gray in the post-match interview area. Even if the result of this Morocco – Comoros was positive, some things did not please the former coach of Nantes. “Even if the result is good, I’m not happy. We missed too many opportunities and I almost want to say that it worries me for the future,” said the Moroccan coach.
Despite the defeat of his team in this Morocco – Comoros, the porter of the Coelacanthes was elected man of the match. It is not a surprise at the sight of the XXL performance of Ben Boina who will have made seven saves and who will have been the executioner of the Moroccan attackers for a long time.
The Atlas Lions have therefore imitated the organizers of this CAN 2022 by joining the round of 16 of the competition. They will be able to play their third games with more peace of mind.
The Moroccans were very serious in this Morocco – Comoros. They offered an attractive game and had plenty of chances. This is perhaps the only downside of the Moroccan afternoon which missed a lot of opportunities to seal the fate of the meeting earlier.
This Morocco – Comoros is over. Victory 2 goals to 0 for the Moroccans who largely dominated the Comorians. The Atlas Lions will see the knockout stages of CAN 2022.
While the assistant referee had raised his flag to cancel the goal, the video intervenes to award the goal to Aboukhal which seems to seal the victory of the Atlas Lions in this Morocco – Comoros.
And if the Comorians carried out a small hold-up in this Morocco – Comoros. Amir Adbou’s men are coming out more and more and trying to bring danger to the cages of a Bono who has been too quiet since the start of the match.
Definitely the Comorian goalkeeper is on fire in this second period of Morocco – Comoros. Ben Boina intervenes perfectly in the feet of Youssef En-Nesyri and maintains his in the meeting.
What a parade! Ben Boina flies away to fend off En-Nesyri’s penalty. The FC Sevilla striker struck in the middle of the cage but Ben Boina repelled the attempt with his foot. No second goal for the Moroccans in this Morocco – Comoros.
This time Ben Boina is at fault. He goes out and hits Aboukhal. The penalty is indisputable. The opportunity for Morocco to fly away in this match.
Once again Ben Boina achieves the unthinkable on his line! The Comorian goalkeeper makes three parades on Saïss and Masina. Moroccans still can’t fly in this Morocco – Comoros.
Former Barcelona player Munir El-Haddadi replaces the hero of the first game Sofiane Boufal in this Morocco – Comoros.
How did that ball not cross the line? On a Moroccan center resumed near Ben Boina, the Comorian goalkeeper made an exceptional stop at close range before being helped by his defense.
On a huge recovery error from Ben Boina, Sofiane Boufal recovers and perfectly shifts Selim Amallah who takes his chance near the penalty area but his ball flirts with the right post of the Comorian goalkeeper. Still 1 to 0 for the Atlas Lions in this Morocco – Comoros.
This Morocco – Comoros turns to the Moroccan recital. The Comorians are suffering and undergoing repeated attacks from their adversaries. There are 20 minutes left to play.
