Spain vs Morocco Stats

Spain vs Morocco World Cup 2018

The final group match for both sides will be crucial for very different reasons. As group favourites, Spain should be looking to win to achieve top spot and progress to the second round as the number one seed, while Morocco will already know by now whether a draw or better will help clinch an unlikely spot in the Round of 16.

Morocco will have already come up against one European giant in the group stage and will be able to apply mostly the same tactics against a strong Spanish team. With the benefit of two matches under their belt, perhaps the Africans can get something out of this one.

Spain on the other hand have been slow starters in the past, losing their opening match at the 2010 and 2014 World Cups, although by this stage of the tournament are normally switched on and focussed. If Morocco aren’t on their game we could see a huge victory to the former champions.

Context is always a factor in the third group stage matches. There is a possibility that Spain won’t need to win to progress to the next round, and they may therefore rest their big names for the Round of 16. Morocco are unlikely to be in the same position, and will surely field their strongest lineup against the Spanish. In any case, they would probably find it tough against the fringe Spanish players.

Given that Spain may not be at their best, you would do yourself a disservice by placing a wager too early. The current odds see the Europeans at -279 – overwhelming favourites – although in the event Spain don’t need a victory you will see better odds available. Morocco enter at +800, while the draw starts at +379.

We’re sticking with Spain regardless of the team that walks out on the field. The squad is simply too good to be losing to the likes of Morocco. Our early pick is a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Spain vs Morocco Betting Tips

Spain’s overwhelming favouritism, while expected, does not offer the betting community much in terms of head to head odds, and therefore you will be no chance of a big outlay. The best option may be to place a parlay bet, combining this head to head result with other sure things in the final round of matches.

There are certainly alternatives, particularly if betting on multiple matches at once is not your style. Our pick is the half-time/full-time double, where you place your bet against the result at the interval and at the end of the match. Spain is highly likely to score early against a team like Morocco, so the -103 on offer for the Spain – Spain double is a fantastic option that is slightly better than a 2:1 outlay.

The over/under market is slightly more treacherous, although we’re confident that Spain will score plenty in this match. We have predicted a 3-0 win to the Spaniards, which would fetch odds of -104 based on a split of +2.5.

If you are happy with the overs, there’s little point in just betting that there will be more than 2.5 goals in the match. The smart pick would be to utilise the matchbet and totals market, allowing you to parlay the over +2.5 into a Spanish victory. This would give you slightly higher odds (+112).

In this market, you can always choose how aggressive or conservative you would like to be. If you think Spain can score more than three goals (or if you think Morocco can also hit the back of the net), you will get +272 for Spain and over +3.5 goals.

Finally, there’s always the correct score market for those who want to really press for a large payout. Our prediction of 3-0 is actually one of the favoured results, priced at +672. Alternatively, Spain 2-0 is paying +418, while a 1-0 victory is the favourite, available for +413.
