Brazil’s first outing after the departure of Tite back in December, with the manager Ramon Menezes on side, taking down Atlas Lions.
As an outsider to the world cup, Morocco are not expected to ruffle in Qatar, as they found themselves with Belgium, Croatia and Canada in what appeared to be a tricky group.
Walid Regragui‘s men ended up making light work of their opponents, drawing with Croatia before beating Belgium and Canada to secure top spot in Group F.
Many believed that Morocco’s World Cup journey would end against Spain in the last 16, but the African underdogs defeated the European heavyweights on penalties before booking their place in the last four with a 1-0 victory over Portugal.
The Atlas Lions were eventually knocked out by France in the semi-finals before losing to Croatia in the third-placed playoff, but they exited the tournament with their heads held high.
Morocco were due to compete in the African Nations Championship in January but withdrew due to travel complications, so the players will be eager to return to international duty after enjoying a fairytale run in Qatar.
Morocco have consistently punched above their weight in recent years and reached the semi-finals of the World Cup in Qatar last year. The North African giants slumped to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Ghana in January this year and will need to bounce back in this fixture.
Brazil, on the other hand, have experienced a transition in recent weeks and now have an array of talented youngsters at their disposal. The Selecao crashed out of the World Cup against Croatia in their previous game and have a point to prove this weekend.
Having avoided defeat in 12 of their last 14 matches across all competitions – picking up eight wins along the way Morocco look set to give Brazil a run for their money in Tangier.

After topping Group G – finishing ahead of Switzerland, Cameroon and Serbia – Brazil thrashed South Korea 4-1 in the last 16, but their journey ended with a penalty-shootout defeat to Croatia in the quarter-finals.
Despite having lost just six of his 81 matches in charge of Selecao, manager Tite parted ways with the national team following the disappointment in Qatar, leaving Ramon Menezes to take the reins on an interim basis.
Menezes inherits one of the strongest teams in international football, as Brazil have lost just one of their previous 20 games inside 90 minutes, but there is a sense that major changes are needed for the five-time World Cup winners to compete at the highest level once again.
