“We know the players and the team (Morocco) very well. But they are still a good team, although we have a plan," Bafana coach Hugo Broos said. 
"We will see if that plan will succeed come next Thursday. We know what we have to do. And one thing that is important is to have the (right) mentality and confidence.
"When you go to Morocco with fear it is better that you stay right here at home.”
The last meeting between Morocco and South Africa was on 01 July 2019. 
The Atlas Lions emerged as 1-0 winners over Bafana in a 2019 AFCON Group D game which was played at the Al Salam Stadium in Egypt.
