Morocco vs Tanzania: preview

AFCON 2023 has already thrown up some massive early upsets – we're looking at you, Ghana 1-2 Cape Verde – so there's plenty of reason to watch the Morocco vs Tanzania live stream today.

Morocco have continued the impressive form that took them all the way to the 2022 World Cup semi-finals. The Atlas Lions have lost just once since Qatar – a 2-1 June 2023 reverse to South Africa in qualifying for this tournament – and have a heady mix of superb individual talent and clever tactics from manager Walid Regragui in the dugout. Achraf Hakimi is one of the world's best right-backs, with Noussair Mazraoui of Bayern Munich just as effective on the opposite flanks. Nayf Aguerd is a calming central presence while Hakim Ziyech and Youssef En-Nesyri lead a deadly forward line.

Tanzania may sit 121st in the current FIFA rankings, but there's no doubt the Taifa Stars will be inspired by the other upsets in AFCON 2023. One-time Aston Villa flop Ally Samatta, now of PAOK in Greece, is the most famous name in the squad that also includes Portsmouth defender Hai Mnoga, who has enjoyed excellent National League loan spells with Aldershot and Weymouth. If it's narrative you're after, keep an eye out for forward Ben Starkie, who has left behind seventh-tier English side Basford United to represent his country against Africa's elite.

In this guide, we explain how to get a Morocco vs Tanzania live stream today and watch the Africa Cup of Nations 2023 wherever you are.

Where to find FREE Morocco vs Tanzania live streams

South Africa's public broadcaster struck a very late deal to show all 52 AFCON games in 2024 for FREE, including Morocco vs Tanzania.

That means you can watch AFCON games for FREE on the SABC Plus website and app.

Elsewhere, in Sub-Saharan Africa broadcaster New World TV has secured the rights to live stream all 2023 Africa Cup of Nations matches for free (Just like it has for the Champions League).

The UK's BBC iPlayer (free to watch with a TV licence) will also stream 10 games from AFCON 2023, including both semi-finals and the final, but unfortunately Morocco vs Tanzania isn't one of them.

If you're from South Africa but are overseas when AFCON 2023 is on, it's possible to use the no.1 soccer VPN to unblock your usual stream from anywhere. Find more details below.
