Spain will start the World Cup as one of the favourites to lift the trophy and will believe they have what it takes to win it for the second time in their last three attempts.
Hoping to prevent the Spanish from doing that in Group B are Portugal, Iran and Morocco. Spain will meet the latter of these teams in the final round of group games, with the match taking place at the Kaliningrad Stadium.
Spain failed at the group stages four years ago and Morocco will be hoping to be the team which can defeat them. So let's look into Spain vs Morocco betting tips.
Spain drew against Portugal 3-3 and later won 1-0 against Iran after a very tough game. Now they will be hoping to win against Morocco with big goal difference so they secure first place in the group.
Morocco lost both of their matches - against Iran and Portugal. This will be their final match of the World Cup and surely will be hoping to get some points since their performance in the tournament was really good so far. It will be a tough match for Spain.

1. Spain vs Morocco Odds
Despite their poor performance at the 2014 World Cup, Spain are still regarded as the strongest team in Group B and are expected to win this match without much discomfort. So what are Spain vs Morocco odds? For starters Spain are just 1.36 with Bet365 to win the game.
The Spanish looked good in their high profile friendly games, defeating Argentina 6-1 on home soil and holding defending World Cup champions, Germany, to a 1-1 draw away from home. Therefore, they should have more than enough to see off Morocco at the World Cup.
Morocco will be hoping to create one of the biggest upsets in their history by winning this game. The countries are very close geographically but far apart in terms of accomplishments in international football.
Only once have Morocco qualified from the group stage at a World Cup and that came in 1986, when the tournament was staged in Mexico. Morocco topped their group in that tournament but are unlikely to do the same in Russia, especially against strong opposition such as Spain.
Morocco are the 11.00 outsiders to win this match, with the draw available at 5.00, both with Bet365.
2. Spain vs Morocco Predictions
Morocco were very difficult to beat during World Cup qualifying and in their six third round group games, they did not concede a single goal. They will be hoping to keep things tight against Spain but will need to get forward at some stage, if they are to win the match.
Spain will keep the ball and wait for the moments to pounce with the quality to pick off Morocco when the opportunity arises. Spain to win to nil is 2.04 at Bet365.
When winning the World Cup in 2010, Spain did not destroy teams in terms of the scoreline and only once did they win by more than a single goal margin. Spain to win by two goals is 3.85 with Netbet.
