Barring any possible upset, the Atlas of Morocco are easily tipped to overcome far lesser-rated Comoros as the Africa Cup of Nations’ Group C gets to its matchday 2.

The game comes up at 16.00 GMT at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde.

Morocco were 1-0 winners over equally high-rated Ghana on first match day and a likely defeat of Comoros will earn the 1976 cup winners an early qualification for the Round of 16.

Sofiane Boufal scored Morocco’s winner against the Black Stars and will be once more the target man for Vahid Halilodzic who still awaits fitness green light for a number of his stars who missed the opener.
