Morocco vs Spain Match Preview and Team News
Morocco defeated Belgium and Canada, packing two goals to both teams, following a goalless draw against Croatia in the opener. The Africans have been very good in the group stage, though, against Canada, we’ve seen them inferior in the last 30, 35 minutes, as they defended. That is probably the best skill of this team, defense. They are disciplined in the back line, and the midfielders are constantly helping, neglecting the attack in situations when rivals attack. But once they get possession of the ball, Morocco is very fast in transition, and that is because of Ziyech and Hakimi, who are fast and creative in those situations. Morocco usually has a defensive-minded approach, trying to protect its own goal and then attack. Sofyan Amrabat shows talent, he has excellent ball control, can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Sofiane Boufal is a guy who causes a lot of problems for the opponent on the left side. He is fast and unstoppable in a one-on-one game.
Spain lost to Japan, 2-1, after leading at halftime. Now we can have a debate whether they wanted this or not, but our opinion is that the Red Fury decided to pick the easier part of the draw and avoid a potential clash with Brazil in the quarterfinals. That’s it, and we said that. They controlled the match well in the opening 45 minutes, yet after that allowed two goals, of which one was illegal, because the ball was in goal out, and until the rest of the game, they calmly played without some significant pressure. Red Fury is extremely well in all areas on the pitch, having maybe the best chemistry of all the teams in the championship. Even Alvaro Morata began playing well and scoring goals, with the striker netting in each game so far in Qatar. Fati plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Pedri is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.
