Spain stands in the way of Morocco’s fairytale run in the FIFA World Cup 2022, as these two sides prepare for an intriguing round-of-16 tie on Tuesday. The contest at Education City Stadium will have the Europeans as the clear favourites – at least on paper. However, the form is on the African side. It is safe to say that Morocco is one of the in-form nations in the World Cup and they are one of the few who are still unbeaten in the competition. Their impressive outing in a difficult group has been met with a lot of praise from pundits and supporters alike.

Placed in Group F, the African nation were given little chance to qualify out of the group. Defying the odds, Morocco started the tournament with a draw over Croatia before defeating Belgium and Canada to top the group with seven points. On the other hand, Spain were placed in what many believed to be the group of death. Spain began Group E with a thumping win over Costa Rica before holding Germany in their subsequent match. However, they were shocked by Japan in a 2-1 defeat in their final group game to settle for the second spot with four points.
