Zambia will be without their captain Roderick Kabwe who will serve a one-match suspension for his dismissal against Tanzania.
On the other hand, Moroccan defender Noussair Mazraoui is yet to feature in this tournament, and he remains a doubt coming into the game against Zambia.
“We already know that Morocco is a big team but we are not afraid of them. We will play them and I hope we will put up a good performance. We will have to show character,” said Zambia coach Avram Grant. 
“The first thing we need to do is forget about the first matches we had. It is a very difficult tournament both physically and mentally, and each match has its own reality,” said Morocco coach Walid Regragui.
Zambia and Morocco have met 18 times across all competitions. The Atlas Lions have won 10 games compared to Chipolopolo's six wins while two games ended in a draw.
The last meeting between the two teams in the AFCON finals was in the 1998 edition and the two teams played to a 1-1 draw in Burkina Faso.
