Morocco will be content to relinquish possession before breaking through at speed, with many of their attacks likely to be centered on the right side where Hakim Ziyech and Achraf Hakimi operate.

Kickoff and channel
The kick-off between Croatia and Morocco is 15:00 GMT On Saturday December 17 in the United Kingdom. The game is free to watch on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
In the US, kick-off time is 10am ET / 8am PT. The match will be shown on FOX/FS1 in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re abroad for the 2022 World Cup, you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. However, you can use a VPN to get around that, without resorting to illegal feeds found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it meets your broadcaster’s terms and conditions, creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning the service can’t determine where you are and let you watch. And all the information that passes between them is completely encrypted, anonymous and secure – and that’s a result.
