Morocco and Nigeria meet in the first quarter-final of the African Nations Championship on Saturday afternoon at the Cape Town Stadium.

Morocco qualified in first place in Group B, ahead of Zimbabwe on goal difference, and are yet to lose a game in the competition.

Both nations are making their debuts at the CHAN finals, and this will be nineteenth meeting between the nations.

Morocco have won eight times, Nigeria six and there have been draws in past meetings.

This is how they line-up:

Morocco: Nadir Lamyaghri, Zakaria El Hachimi, Mohamed Abarhoun, Mohamed Oulhaj, Zaid Krouch, Said Fettah, Issam Erraki, Mohsine Moutaouali,  Abdessamad Rafik, Abdelkabir El Ouadi, Mouhsinne Iajour
