2018 FIFA World Cup: Spain vs Morocco – Match Preview

Spain will be looking to seal their spot in the next stage when they take on Morocco in their final group game.

Both the teams will enter their final group game with different aims. While Spain will be desperate to get a favourable result to seal a spot in the Round of 16 without depending on the outcome of the other game between Iran and Portugal, Morocco, who are  already-eliminated, will be keen to salvage some pride.

Spain are the firm favourites to win the contest. However, they should avoid any complacency especially after their unimpressive win over Iran. The form is also on their side as they have now gone 22 games without tasting defeat since succumbing to Italy in the last 16 at UEFA EURO 2016.

On the other hand, Morocco will be aiming for a good result in their final game after losing their first two games despite putting up creditable performances. The Atlas Lions lost the opener against Iran due to an own goal in the extra time before losing to Portugal. The last time a team failed to score in all three of their group games was back in 2010 when both Algeria and Honduras went home without scoring and the Atlas Lions will be desperate to become the third team to do so.

For Spain, it will be Diego Costa. The Atletico Madrid star has buried the ghosts of 2014 World Cup with a scintillating display in Russia so far. He scored twice against Portugal before scoring the winner against Iran. He will be keen to extend his good form against Morocco too.
