Morocco and Spain will meet in the round of 16 game of the World Cup Qatar 2022. This game will be played at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan on December 6, 2022 at 10:00 AM (ET). Morocco can defend, but Spain is ready to score more goals. Here’s all the details on the potential squads for this World Cup.
Morocco are the most dangerous underdogs in the knockout stage, they are at this stage of the 2022 World Cup because their defense did a perfect job during the group stage.
Spain have top strikers, but they have yet to score more than two goals in their last two matches. Today there are many doubts about Luis Enrique’s playing system.
Morocco probable lineup
Morocco can eliminate Spain easily, since the strength of the Moroccans lies in their eight forwards. They scored 4 goals during the group stage, and Morocco’s defense is strong, during the previous stage they allowed only one goal.
Morocco play together, therefore they do not have a top goal scorer, so far four different players have scored goals for the national team.
This is the likely Morocco’s lineup for this game: Yassine Bounou, Romain Saïss, Achraf Hakimi, Jawad El Yamiq, Nayef Aguerd, Sofyan Amrabat, Selim Amallah, Yahya Jabrane, Ilias Chair, Hakim Ziyech, Youssef En-Nesyri.
Spain probable lineup
Spain has strong and weak sides, one of the weakest sides is La Roja’s defense, they know that the left-backs and right-backs are the ones who suffer the most to stop attacking plays.
Morata is the only Spanish player with three goals, he scored all those goals during the Group Stage, one in each game of that phase. The second top scorer is Ferran Torres with two goals scored against Costa Rica.
This is the likely Spain’s lineup for this game: Unai Simón, César Azpilicueta, Eric García, Jordi Alba, Aymeric Laporte, Sergio Busquets, Gavi, Carlos Soler, Pedri, Álvaro Morata, Marco Asensio.
