Spain vs Mororcco Preview and Predictions

On Monday night, Spain and Morocco go head-to-head at Group B of the World Cup, as La Roja look to book their spot in the knockout stages.

Spain are currently neck and neck with neighbours Portugal on four points in the group, while they are also level on goal difference.

A draw could be enough to seal qualification and even win the group if the Iran-Portugal game finishes all square. Spain have not been at their best in Russia but have recovered from the shock exit of boss Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the competition.

La Roja are now undefeated in 22 international games, having recorded 14 victories in the process. Their recent games have been low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last six outings.

The Spaniards have lost just two of their last 11 games at the World Cup. They will be highly confident of maintaining that record in this clash.

Despite playing some lovely football in Russia, Morocco are already eliminated from the World Cup. The Africa side suffered two 1-0 defeats against Iran and Portugal in their first two group games. The lack of killer instinct was on full display in both games.

 Morocco headed into the World Cup with an unbeaten record of 18 games, which proves they are tough to defeat and are no pushovers.

Like their opponents, four of their last six games have produced under 2.5 goals, which partly illustrates the African side’s lack of goalscoring threat.

Morocco will be keen to improve their recent World Cup record, as they have won just two of their previous 15 games at finals. In fact, the African nation has suffered defeat in seven of their last nine games in the competition.
