Officially qualified after the draw between Burundi and the Central African Republic (2-2), Morocco was satisfied with a draw in Mauritania (0-0) for the 5th day of the qualifiers in group E. It is a result that does not necessarily suit Mauritania which no longer has its destiny in hand for a qualification for CAN 2021. </p><div> <p><span><span><span><span><span><span>More than 16 months later, the return match strangely resembles <strong>in the first leg (0-0)</strong>. Between Moroccans and Mauritanians, there were no winners, no goals. And above all little spectacle if we can say so. On the first leg, the Moroccans lacked efficiency and came across a very successful Mauritanian goalkeeper. This time, Namori Diaw did not have much work to do as Vahid Halilhodzic's men, despite dominating possession, were never able to secure clear scoring opportunities.</span></span></span></span></span></span></p><h2><strong><span><span><span><span><span><span>A ticket for three</span></span></span></span></span></span></strong></h2><p><span><span><span><span><span><span>Opposite, Mauritania, without offensive inspiration, decided to keep its defensive solidity even if it meant playing the point of a draw during the second half. However, this is not a result that suits the Mourabitounes in search of a second consecutive qualification for the CAN. Corentin Martins' men are still second in this Pool E behind Morocco, but the last day, facing the <strong>Central African Republic</strong>, which is also running behind a first qualification, may be stressful.</span></span></span></span></span></span>
All the scenarios can be considered, but to put it simply, they must obtain a better result than Burundi which goes to Morocco and which will be favored by the particular goal difference in the event of a similar result with Mauritania. But this similar result is a defeat, it is… the RCA which passes. Everything remains possible in this hen E.
