The quarter-finals of Qatar 2022 will have this very interesting duel between the big surprise of the tournament, Morocco and Portugal, who have become strong contenders for the title after their victory over Switzerland. Here we will tell you everything about the duel between the two rivals.
The Moroccan team is undoubtedly the big revelation of this World Cup. They had a tough group with World Cup runners-up Croatia and Russia 2018 with third-placed Belgium. Nevertheless, they were able to progress as leaders and in the round of 16 caused another surprise when they eliminated Spain on penalties.
Portugal got off to the best start to the group stage, winning their first two games clearly but losing the third against South Korea. That defeat left some doubts in the Portuguese team, but a brilliant performance against Switzerland in the Round of 16, in which they won 6-1, dispelled any doubts. They are one of the contenders and want to show why.
