Hello and welcome to AfricanFootball.com for our LIVE coverage of the 2018 African Nations Championship (Chan) Group A clash between Morocco and Guinea from the Stade Mohamed V in  Casablanca on Wednesday, 17 January 2018.


45+3′ – Half-Time: Morocco 1-1 Guinea 

45′ – Three minutes added to the half.

40′ – Into the final five minutes of the half and it’s Guinea who have gained the upper hand following their blistering equalizer. The Atlas Lions look dangerous on the counter through Ayoub El Kaabi, but Guinea are up to the challenge.

30′ – The match has really shot into life in Casablanca. Brilliant response from Guinea following Morocco’s opener.

28′ – GOAL! Saidouba Bissiri levels matters straight from the kick-off! Beautiful finish from the Guinea attacker who chips the on-rushing Anas Zniti.

27′ – GOAL! Ayoub El Kaabi has continued his goal streak as he heads the Atlas Lions in front. Controversial as he looked to be just offside, but the goal stands!

18′ – Good spell of pressure from the hosts who have pressed Guinea deep into their own half. The West African’s, though, are not giving an inch.

8′ – Daouda Bangoura goes into the referee’s book following a tough challenge. Physical start to the clash with both teams eager to get stuck in.

3′ – Early chance for Morocco as Benoun skies his effort from close range from a corner-kick! Should really be 1-0 to the hosts who are eager to build on their impressive second-half showing against Mauritania.

1′ – Kick-off in Casablanca!
