The Atlas Lions are having a good tournament so far, making it out of their Group unbeaten, conceding just one goal and earning a historic win against Belgium. Now, the North Africans are in the Round of 16 for the first time since 1986 and the second time in their World Cup history.
Here, they will be looking to get past Spain and continue their good run so as to join the class of Senegal, Cameroon and Ghana as the only African sides to have earned a quarterfinal place at the World Cup.
Their confidence will be bolstered by the fact that they are yet to lose a game since June earning 7 wins and 2 draws.
Spain are lookin to avoid another last 16 exit having done same in Russia 2018. In their last two World Cup outings since winning it in 2010, they have suffered a Group Stage exit and a last 16 failure.
So far, barring the 2-1 loss in their last Group game against Japan, Enrique’s men are having a relatively good tournament with Morata and co rejiging themselves to once again re-establish their status as one of the top teams in Europe.
Here, they will be cautious not to underestimate the Moroccans having seen what Ziyech and his teammates did to Martinez’s so called Golden Generation Belgian side.
