France against Morocco
Before the match:
Setting the scene
Wednesday’s match is the sixth match of the general between France and Morocco, the first to take place at the World Cup. However, Morocco will be hoping that this match will be different from the past, as France are unbeaten in their previous five meetings (3-2-0).
France is the first defending World Cup champion to reach the semi-finals since Brazil in 1998. With a win, France would become only the fifth defending champion to reach the World Cup final, joining Italy in 1938, Brazil 1962, Argentina 1990 and Brazil 1998.
On the other hand, Morocco is the first African nation to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup, and with a win they would be the first team outside of CONMEBOL and UEFA to reach the final of the World Cup.
