Spain vs Morocco? Spain will easily swat aside Morocco by 3 or 4 goals in a one-sided match. Well, that’s what anyone would have thought if it wasn’t the World Cup 2018. If anything you can learn from this tournament so far is that it just doesn’t follow the scripts, does it? Iceland, Mexico, Croatia, Japan, Switzerland. What’s common for all these nations? Yes, you guessed it correctly. All of them have created big upsets already in the WC.
I expect Morocco to sit deep, be really compact and frustrate Spain for as long as possible and then try and hit them on the break. If Isco and co find their rhythm quickly and get an early goal, it could prove to be a really long night for Morocco.
Predictions: Spain 2-0 Morocco
