Morocco will round off their preparations for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar with a friendly against Georgia at the Sharjah stadium on Thursday. The Atlas Lions will kick off their campaign against last edition’s finalists Croatia on November 23 before taking on Belgium and Canada on November 27 and December 2 respectively in their next Group F matches. Both nations were previously in action in September, with Morocco playing out a goalless draw against Paraguay in a friendly, while Gibraltar got the better of Georgia 2-1 in a Nations League match.  

Morocco earned a spot in the World Cup courtesy of thrashing Democratic Republic of Congo 5-2 on aggregate in the third round of qualifiers in March. Since then, the Atlas Lions have lost just one of their five outings across all competitions. Prior to that goalless draw against Paraguay, Walid Regragui’s side defeated Chile 2-0 courtesy of  second half goals from Sofiane Boufal and Abdelhamid Samiri. Meanwhile, the Atlas Lions will be heading to Qatar desperate to improve their performance from four years ago in Russia, when they finished at the bottom of Group B. 

Georgia, on the other hand, failed to qualify for their first ever World Cup after finishing at the fourth position in Group B of UEFA qualifiers. However, Willy Sagnol’s side turned their fortunes with a fine run in the UEFA Nations League, having recorded five wins from six games to secure top spot in League C Group 4. Georgia head into Thursday on a run of nine wins and two draws in their last 11 matches across all competitions. The Crusaders have kept eight clean sheets and conceded just four goals since their last defeat, which was in October 2021 against Greece (2-0).
