Herve Renard, Morocco 03272018
Herve Renard’s charges have been very tough to outgun recently, and might show off such a character here once again

Morocco will be looking forward to outclass Ukraine when they lock horns at the Stade de Geneve for their international friendly on Thursday.

The North Africans will be hoping to stretch their superb streak of 10 victories and a stalemate in their previous 11 games when they face their first huge test ahead of the World Cup in Russia.

Heading into this duel on the back of a five-match winning run which included 2-1 and Uzbekistan 2-0 wins against Serbia and Uzbekistan respectively in March and winning the African Nations Championship in February, LionsBet prices them at odds of (2.80) to come out on top here.

Andriy Shevchenko’s side missed the qualification with a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Croatia on the last day on the qualifiers. However, being on a three-game unbeaten run in their recent friendly ties is enough reason for them to be quoted at (2.75) for victory in Geneva.

A no winner, no vanquish state at the end of 90 minutes of intense action is chalked up at a chunky (2.90).

It’s worth mentioning that the Atlas Lions have been on a scoring spree, and they’ve been very strong to outwit, having kept three clean sheets in their last five outings. These recent records appear reassuring and Renard's charges are available at a juicy (2.55) to keep another clean sheet.

Two of Renard’s men’s last five clashes have seen two or fewer goals scored, while the Ukrainian side have seen the same outcome in three of theirs. Thus, under 2.5 goals in this fixture can be backed at odds of (1.40) with the same betting firm.

Both teams have scored more in their first half of their previous two friendlies. Punters can back a likely result here at a mouth-watering (3.30).

A more profitable bet is to back the Moroccans to either win or play a draw in this showdown in Switzerland owing to their defensive fortress. LionBet offers odds of (1.40) for the same result in this outing.
