On the other hand, Morocco was undefeatable in Group F when they drew 0-0 with Croatia and then defeat Belgium 2-0 and took down Canada 2-1.

Morocco vs. Spain - Prediction, MoroccoSource: voi

Morocco number one Yassine Bounou, who felt ill just prior to the victory over Belgium and had to withdraw at the last second, was able to finish the full 90 minutes against Canada and will hope to form part of an untouched XI.
Achraf Hakimi - who delivered a satisfying assist for En-Nesyri's strike - is considered to be passed fit despite nursing some ankle issues, but the Paris Saint-Germain right-back was one of some starters not risked in full training on Saturday.
The cases of Ziyech, Sofyan Amrabat, and Sofiane Boufal were also granted a well-earned rest, but there is nothing to indicate that the trio will not be given the green light for Tuesday's match.

As for Spain, Enrique will not have the service from the trio of Dani OlmoDavid Raya, and Cesar Azpilicueta in Friday's training session, although the former was just believed to have been rested after a grueling group period.
Still, Azpilicueta - who came off at halftime against Japan - is dealing with pain in his calf, while the reasons for Raya's absence are yet to be specified, but Simon was always hoped to be handed the gloves despite his mistake last time out.
Enrique was not afraid to hand starts to the up-and-coming pair of Nico Williams and Alejandro Balde against Japan, but Ferran Torres and Jordi Alba will be considered to return to the first XI for the knockout stages.
