Spain vs Morocco Preview

Spain vs Morocco

Competition – FIFA World Cup

Stadium – Kaliningrad Stadium

Date: 25th June 2018

Kick-off time – 19:00 GMT

This group remains open for three teams and one of them is Spain, however, Morocco would have packed their bags by the time they take to the field for this match.

Spain need to win this game and they won’t need to worry about the other game’s result.

However, if they lose they will hope that Portugal win for them to qualify – winning is a task they should get done here to avoid any drama.

The Spaniards drew with Portugal in their first game, before winning their next game 1-0 against a tough Iran side.

Morocco join Egypt and Tunisia as their fellow north African friends who have been eliminated from this competition.

They were unfortunate to have lost their first match 1-0 to Iran via an own goal.

They fought hard in their second match against Portugal having gone a goal down in the first half, however, Portugal defended well and they were eliminated following two losses from as many games.

This game will be their first meeting since a two-legged World Cup game in 1962 won by 4-2 by Spain.

Bookmakers currently price Spain up as heavy odds-on favourites to get the job done inside 90 minutes and qualify for the knockout round.
