MOR vs SPN: Match Preview, Analysis And Kickoff Time
Spain will face Morocco in the round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan. Morocco advances to the knockout stages for only the second time in their history and the first time since Italy in 1986. A win would be the Atlas Lions’ most successful World Cup, as they have never advanced past this stage before.
Spain, one of the tournament favorites, will present them with a difficult test. Spain advances to the round of 16 for the fifth time in the last six World Cups but hasn’t reached the quarterfinals since being crowned champions in South Africa in 2010.
Spain finished second in Group E with one win, one draw, and one defeat in an interesting group. The Spaniards were defeated 2-1 by Japan on the final day of the tournament, denying them first place in the group.
However, it appears to have worked in Spain’s favor, as they will now avoid a potential quarterfinal matchup with Brazil and a semifinal matchup with Argentina.
Spain has shown flashes of why they are legitimate contenders for the trophy this tournament, most notably their 7-0 thrashing of Costa Rica in the first round.
KICKOFF TIME: Spain versus Morocco match will go down on Tuesday at 4PM Nigerian time.
