Belgium will be looking to return to their best form and achieve two wins out of two in the group stage, but Morocco will make it extremely difficult for Kevin de Bruyne and company.
BELGIUM V MOROCCO LIVE STREAM
Roberto Martínez saw his team completely dominated by Canada in their first match of Group F, but they took advantage of their great opportunity and won the game, largely thanks to poor finishing from Canada and Thibaut Courtois saving a penalty kick. The number 2 team in the world ranking has to improve. Fast.
Morocco caused Croatia a lot of problems in their first match and a draw was a fair result as their high pressing caused Croatia a lot of problems. They will be looking to do exactly the same against Belgium and could be in for a lot of joy if Hakim Ziyech finds himself in dangerous areas in the final third.

Key stories, players to watch closely
Kevin de Bruyne has almost apologized after being named man of the match against Canada, as he said he and his teammates really struggled on their World Cup debut. Belgium have to give their back three more protections as they are very susceptible to fast players cutting wide and teams playing straight up and picking off their midfield playmakers. Surely Roberto Martínez will be the starter for Meunier and Onana in this match to try to give Belgium a little more control and solidity. Michy Batshuayi is expected to go on to fill in for the injured Romelu Lukaku once again.
Morocco will try to do exactly what Canada did to Belgium and they have the players to do it. Ziyech and Boufal will cause problems on the wings and Morocco looked solid defensively against Croatia. There is a real whiff of malaise in the air around this one, as Morocco will be roared by their huge group of supporters in Qatar.
