Morocco, who drew against Croatia and shocked world number two Belgium on their way to the Round of 16, will have yet another European challenge in front of them when they take on Spain
in a battle to move to the quarterfinal for the first time ever in their World Cup
If any Moroccan team would ever have been capable of beating Spain, it is this one. Having conceded only once, that too against Canada, the North African side will be pumped to show tremendous defence once again and learn from the Japanese who kept the Spanish strikers at bay.
On the other hand. Spain, having lost to Japan, which also worked as a blessing in disguise for them as they are facing Morocco
instead of Croatia, would look to bounce back from the group stage defeat to Japan. The likes of Alvaro Morata, Pedri and Gavi and Ferran Torress would be eager to get amongst the goals and lead Spain
to a quarterfinal for the first time since their World Cup-winning campaign of 2010.
