Morocco will be without Younes Belhanda for Saturday’s clash with Ivory Coast due to injury.

The Montpellier midfielder, who was voted Young Player of the Year in the French Ligue 1 this season, sustained a knock to his ankle while representing the national side against Gambia last weekend, forcing him to be ruled out of the CAF World Cup qualifier.

The 22-year-old is expected to be on the sidelines for three weeks but will be ready to begin pre-season work with his domestic club at the end of the month.

His absence is a blow for the north Africans, who are also missing Heerenveen striker Oussama Assaidi through injury for their home clash with the Ivorians.

Morocco began their Group C qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw at Gambia, while Ivory Coast notched a 2-0 win over Tanzania in their opening fixture.
