Match Betting Previews

Morocco versus Spain - Tuesday, December 6th

Morocco are living up their experience in Qatar after progressing through to their first knockout stage in the World Cup since the 1980’s.

A nation filled with a ton of top league talent, Morocco has been vastly underrated by the general population.

They had the lowest amount of xG in the whole group stage for their pool but managed to get some clutch and timely goals to just about come through in one of the more even-sided groups.

Hakim Ziyech has been a man on a mission throughout these past few weeks and nothing seems like it will be changing.

Achraf Hakimi and his squad have a huge chance to do the impossible against Spain this week.

If their defensive shape remains as good as it usually is, look out for some devastating pace on the counter to possibly open up Morocco’s scoring account.

Spain did not end their group stage in the best way after losing an early lead, eventually turning a loss in the Spanish column.

How deeply their team runs is less than most years, but their ability is out of this world.

The technical ability of youngsters in midfield such as Pedri and Gavi has been unreal.

These two are considered some of the future stars in our game. Spanish fans know their potential is unlimited, but this world cup campaign will start in the round of sixteen against Morocco.

Spain plays a freedom style of football, with many passes amongst the midfielders.

Betting Prediction - Morocco to hold their own and win or draw within the regulation time.

Portugal versus Switzerland - Tuesday, December 6th

Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal have a real battle on their hands when they face the Swiss for a spot in the QF’s this upcoming Tuesday.

Portugal are a seriously loaded roster, with talent from every single top European league.

The group stage came to an abrupt end after their B roster did not win or even draw with a point against South Korea, a game where they lead after an early goal.

Switzerland were put through after a gutsy performance against Serbia which saw five goals total in the contest, was won.

Their grit in the group stage was undenied, with a ton of opportunities to close out games in all three of their matches.

This game will come down to which squad can defend better on the day, and right now, it looks to be Portugal.

Betting Prediction - Portugal to win and the under on total Asian goals.
