Morocco, Senegal through to African playoffs for 2022 World Cup

Morocco has joined Senegal in the African play-offs for next year’s World Cup in Qatar after making it with two games to spare.

The two-legged play-offs in march will determine the continent’s five representatives in Qatar.

However, several groups are finely poised, with six winner-takes-all showdowns possible in the final round of qualifiers.

In Group A, Africa Cup Of Nations holders Algeria, are ahead of Burkina Faso on goal difference, with the two countries meeting in North Africa in the final group game.

Côte d’Ivoire lead Cameroon by a point in Group D.

It is the same situation in Group G where South Africa have a one-point advantage over Ghana, with the Black Stars hosting Bafana Bafana in their last match.

The Black Stars travel to Ethiopia, while South Africa welcome Zimbabwe before the clash in Ghana.

Nigeria are two points ahead of Cape Verde in Group C, with the two teams set to meet in the final round of the group stage.

Mali and Uganda remain unbeaten, with the West Africans leading the Cranes by two points in Group E.

Mali travel to Rwanda and Uganda welcome Kenya next month before the top two meet in Mali.

Meanwhile, three countries are still in the hunt for top spot in Group I.

Tanzania and Benin have seven points, while DRCongo are two points adrift.

Tanzania host DR Congo, while Benin entertain the Islanders and then travel to face the Leopards in the final round.
