Spain will take on Morocco in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. This is a big game for Spain since they have not secured qualification yet and that will be a priority of the 2010 winners.
Morocco played two good games this World Cup but were unlucky that they lost both times. That meant that Morocco were eliminated. Having said that, I am sure that the African side will want to cause Spain some trouble and win a game before they catch their flight back home. There is tons of talent in Morocco and in both games they played, they were the more dominant side. That is commendable and if luck is in their favor, a win is possible.
Looking at Spain, this side is looking very good. The midfield is full of talent with Isco and Iniesta playing well together. Diego Costa is scoring goals and the defense is looking solid with Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique. The only criticism of Spain will be their lack of intensity at times but that is something that can be fixed quickly. This is a game that Spain is expected to win and I think that will happen.
To sum up, I am predicting that Spain wins this game. Spain needs a big win to ensure top spot in the group and I think that will happen. As a result, I am going to suggest that we wager on the over 2.5 goals. Spain should score 3 goals and that should win us the bet. As far as betting on the outright result is concerned, we are not getting a good price on Spain to win. I am suggesting we avoid betting on the outright result.
