Spain v Morocco Betting Preview – World Cup 2018 25th June – 7.00 p.m

Spain will want to try and run up the goals in this one as they go into this fixture level on points and goal difference with Portugal. So they have to better whatever their Iberian rivals manage on the day to win the group. Spain had a real struggle in breaking down Iran in their second group stage match. Still, our Spain v Morocco predictions are siding on the Europeans finding a win to win this.

Spain News and Form

Spain have to get a win as well as earning a goal difference advantage over Portugal in the final round of group stage matches to win Group B. The two Iberian rivals are level on points and goal difference. Spain and Portugal were always expected to get themselves out of this group but the Spaniards had a real battle on their hands against Iran in midweek. Spain enjoyed the bulk of possession as expected but had a hard time in cracking the well drilled Iranian defence. Diego Costa got the goal in their 1-0 success and that takes his tally to three for the tournament. So Costa’s well in the hunt for the Golden Boot and is a good option for the anytime goalscorer market for this one.

We don’t see Morocco having a huge impact here and our prediction is to go with a Spain to win to nil option at 20/21 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 7:43 p.m.). The last two wins that Spain have recorded have both been 1-0 scorelines, however there has to be a little more than that in this one for them. So for our Spain v Morocco prediction we are going with a Spain 2-0 correct score at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 7:43 p.m.). The Spaniards have been alternating between a draw and a win in their last six games, but they can break the sequence by making it back to back wins from this game.

Morocco News and Form

There is nowhere for Morocco to go but home as they have already been eliminated. They haven’t picked up a point and they haven’t scored a goal in the tournament yet and that may not change. The biggest disappointment from their perspective will be the lack of goals produced because while the intent has been there, the quality hasn’t. To be fair they did take the game to Portugal in their second fixture, bettering their opponents for possession and shots at goal. They still came out empty handed.

The issue now for this game is that they will likely see a lot less of the ball than they did against the European champions and we have to go with both teams not to score at 5/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 7:43 p.m.). That touch of composure in the final third has clearly been missing and with nothing at stake in this one, there is even the possibility that they will shuffle their starting eleven to give some of the squad a run-out. Morocco are W3 D1 L2 in their last six games, the two defeats there tellingly at this tournament and they don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last four.

Spain v Morocco Predictions

We are going to stick with Spain getting the win in this one. While Morocco did well against Portugal, they aren’t going to see as much of the ball in this one and because of that was are going with a prediction of Spain to win to nil.
