Spain vs Morocco Preview
Spain were pushed all the way by a fantastic team performance from Iran but managed to hang on to a slender 1-0 win courtesy of VAR. At best, Spain deserved only a point and will come away having survived their first scare of the tournament. Morrocco have been disappointing after losing both their opening games.
Spain vs Morocco Odds
Spain vs Morocco Score Prediction
La Roja need goals and will look to get on the scoresheet early against Morocco to ensure no late drama sees them exit the World Cup at the group stage. Spain to win 2-0 is priced at 6.50 with Bet365.
Fernando Hierro’s men will be all too aware of what could happen if they don’t get off to the right start against Morocco. Once taking the lead, Spain will look to pass Morocco out the contest and therefore goals shouldn’t be forthcoming. Under 2.5 Goals with Betstar is good value at 1.70.
Both Teams To Score Prediction
Group B is all set up to go to the final day for three of the teams. Nothing has been decided yet, when it comes to who goes through, and even if Spain and Portugal are favourites to progress, Iran’s performance against La Roja will have punters wondering if it will be as straightforward as first thought.
Spain have scored 12 goals in their last five games
Morocco have scored five goals in their last four games
Morocco have conceded a goal in each of their last four games
Why Should I Bet On Spain Against Morocco?
Spain and Morocco come into this game at very different ends of the spectrum. Spain will be battling for every goal to claim the top of the group, while Morocco’s hopes of qualifying crumbled with Cristiano Ronaldo’s diving header just four minutes into their last match. Spain squeaked past the stalwart and heroic defence of Iran in their last game, and now they face the defeated Morocco. For Morocco to go down swinging and get a surprise win over Spain, Betfair gives odds of 11.0.
Spain to win and 3+ goals
Both Spain and Portugal have four points, four goals for, three goals against, and one match left to play. Portugal must face the incredibly stubborn Iran, so Spain may only need a win and a couple of goals to top their rivals, or even come ahead of Iran on points.
Morocco is a defeated team that has struggled to put away its chances. Against Portugal and Iran, they had ample sights at goal, but they lack a clinical finisher. That’s not to say that the likes of Nordin Amrabat won’t, once again, be a nuisance up the wing. As both games of Group B kickoff at 4 am AEST on 26 June, Spain will simply have to go all-out to score as many goals as possible to top Portugal without knowing the most recent antics of Ronaldo until half-time. Spain to win and there to be three or more goals in the game is given odds of 1.85 with Centrebet.
As shown against Portugal, Spain starts to build momentum very early on, using the ball to explore the attacking area of the pitch early and often. A lot is riding on the scoreline, Spain isn’t expected to rest any of their key players, so expect the likes of David Silva, Isco, and Diego Costa to start.
Morocco has only conceded twice so far, a late goal from Iran and a very early goal from Portugal. However, Portugal produced very weak final balls in and around the box through the game and invited Morocco pressure by fouling around their own box. Spain will take the chances that they get, and create many throughout the game. Spain to be winning at half time and full time is given odds of 1.90 by bet365.
