This is the 53rd game of the tournament, and both team's first as part of the knockout round, so there must be a winner. It's the first game of the day, with Portugal and Switzerland clashing four hours later. We've got a guide on how to watch Portugal vs Switzerland here.

What you need to know about the match

Spain are one of the legendary football teams, but they've had a troubled time in the World Cup 2022 so far.

In the group stage it only won one game — admittedly 7-0 — but it drew to Germany and lost to Japan, a team which ended up winning the group stages.

Morocco won its group by flying colors, winning two games and drawing one, so it's been performing above expectations for the tournament. But in terms of global rankings, it doesn't have the reputation Spain does.

The two teams last met in the 2018 World Cup, when they drew, but such an outcome isn't possible here — it's the knockout round, and one team has to be... well, knocked out.

Bookies seem to be looking at a Spanish victory but not by a huge margin, so even they're not certain which way it could go.
