France v Morocco semi-final picks & value bets – World Cup 2022

World Cup semifinal preview - France v Morocco

On Wednesday, France and Morocco will face off for the right to play either Argentina or Croatia in the 2022 FIFA World Cup final. This is going to be a fascinating game between the story of the tournament and the defending champions, and we have some free betting picks for the matchup.

France vs Morocco match pick: Either team on penalties

All things considered, France should win this game. Morocco have gone on a magical run to reach this point, and while they have played well, this is France. The defending champions have looked dominant so far. While they barely beat England, France deserved to win that game and have all the momentum heading into this semi-final. That being said, Morocco will not make it easy. They have won consecutive games against Spain and Portugal, and they’ve conceded only one goal — an own goal — at this tournament. We expect Morocco to sit back and play for penalties, and if that works, this bet will cash at great odds.

Either team to win on penalties


France vs Morocco total goals: Under 1.5

Because Morocco are expected to park the bus in this game, the under is the play. While France have the talent to break through that game plan, it won’t be easy. Morocco should not create a lot and they won’t be a big threat in front of goal. As a result, this bet will likely come down to whether France can score multiple goals, and considering Morocco’s defensive record, that will be difficult. Take the under in what should be a slow, grind-it-out type of game.

France vs Morocco anytime goalscorer: Kylian Mbappe

Another game, another bet on Kylian Mbappe to score. While England somewhat kept him in check, the Moroccans do not have the personnel to shut down Mbappe for 90-plus minutes. The Paris Saint-Germain star now leads the Golden Boot race with five goals for the 2022 World Cup. Morocco will sit back and look to stifle the French attack, but Mbappe is the kind of player that can produce that moment of brilliance at any point. Mbappe also takes penalties, so if that situation arises, this bet will have extra value. In a game that projects to be defensive, goalscorer bets are not typically the play, but Mbappe’s form is too good to ignore.
