Why you should back Belgium

The Belgians won the possession battle against Canada by retaining the ball 54% of the time but they faced an onslaught of shots (22) from the upstart squad. Luckily Thibaut Courtois was strong in goal and the back three of Leander Dendoncker, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen held steady, only allowing three of those shots on to go on target.

Meanwhile, Belgium completed 520 passes (83%) in a tense battle and ultimately survived on a 44th-minute goal from Michy Batshuayi. The Fenerbahce striker now has four goals and three assists in his last eight caps for Belgium and he'll continue to play a critical role up front with Romelu Lukaku battling injury. Batshuayi has now had 12 goals across 21 matches in all competition for club and country in 2022.

Why you should back Morocco

The Moroccans' only loss in their past nine matches was a 3-0 setback in a friendly with the USMNT in June. They are 4-2-0 since then, beating South Africa and Liberia in 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying and taking friendly victories against Chile and Georgia. The Atlas Lions won all six games in CAF second-round qualifying, scoring 20 goals and conceding just one before a 5-2 aggregate victory over Congo. They reached the quarterfinals of the 2021 Cup of Nations and won the Africa Nations Championship (for domestic players only) in 2018 and 2020.

The hallmark of Morocco is defense, as evidenced by the plus-20 goal differential in group play in qualifying. They scored 31 goals and allowed five in winning the back-to-back Nations Championships. Croatia held the ball for 65% of Wednesday's match but had just five shots, with just two on target. Chelsea's Hakim Ziyech (18 goals in 44 international matches), and Sevilla's Youssef En-Nesyri (15 in 51), are the most notable attackers. Bayern Munich's Noussair Mazraoui and Achraf Hakimi of PSG also get deeply involved down the flanks.
