Morocco will take on Portugal in the 2022 World Cup quarterfinal on December 10, 2022. The match will be held at Al Thumama Stadium.
On Tuesday, Morocco made World Cup history by dealing Spain its worst-ever defeat. After a goalless match on the field, the North African team triumphed 3–0 on penalties, becoming the first Arab team in history to reach the FIFA World Cup's final eight stages. Portugal beat Switzerland to advance to the 2022 World Cup quarterfinals.
Morocco and Portugal have only met twice at World Cups. Morocco beat Portugal 3-1 in 1986 to advance from the group stage, but only to the Round of 16. In the 2018 World Cup group stages, Ronaldo's fourth-minute goal gave Portugal a 1-0 win.
