Spain play Morocco in Group B match at the Kaliningrad Stadium on Monday night and we take a look at the game from a betting angle.
GROUP B UPDATE
Spain are favourites to win the group at 5/10 ahead of Portugal 31/20 and Iran 21/1. As things stand Spain and Portugal are level at the top on 4 points with Iran on 3 and while there are a number of scenarios that could pan out Spain just need to avoid defeat to progress to the last 16 – Click here for Group B betting

Spain looked impressive in their opening match against Portugal first coming from behind and then conceding a late equaliser to draw 3-3. They battled to break Iran down in their second match but did get somewhat a fortunate goal in the second half and a 1-0 score line was maintained.
They face a Morocco side that is out of the tournament after 1-0 defeats to Portugal and Iran and the fact that Morocco are out may well play out in Spains favour as Morocco are likely to play a more positive approach than the likes of Iran did and this should ensure Spain get opportunities at the other end.
These sides haven’t met since 1962 when Spain won both matches in the World Cup playoffs.
Suggested bet: Over 2.5 goals at 8/10.
This could be quite an entertaining game to watch and I expect Morocco to throw everything at Spain in their final match and as they go in search of their first goal of the tournament. Spain have plenty of fire power and against a team that is willing to play football, which I expect Morocco to do, I think we will get goals and I am betting that we see at least 3 of them.
