QATAR World Cup 2022

Round of 16
06/12/2022 | 15:00 (GMT)
Morocco
Spain
Education City Stadium

Spain and Morocco’s meeting at the Education City Stadium is the fourth in their history. They first locked horns in two World Cup qualifiers in 1961 – La Roja won both – before playing out a 2-2 draw in the World Cup group stages four years ago.  

Morocco enjoyed a fantastic Group F campaign, finishing top ahead of Croatia and Belgium after securing two wins and a draw. Four different players have scored for The Atlas Lions so far, but Hakim Ziyech is their star man. The Chelsea winger has a goal and an assist to his name in the tournament and averages a goal involvement every 1.5 matches for his country.  

After a strong start, Spain stumbled into the next round. Luis Enrique’s men kicked off with an emphatic 7-0 win against Costa Rica but were then held by Germany and beaten by Japan. In the end, they qualified via goal difference, with Alvaro Morata playing a key part with three strikes in three appearances – he is among the Anytime Goal Scorer favourites for this one.  

Morocco have never won a knockout match at the World Cup. Can they make history and reach the quarter-finals for the first time? Make your predictions with BetVictor’s Morocco v Spain World Cup 2022 Betting markets.
