Perhaps this World Cup last sixteen clash will be closer than the odds suggest. Spain are among the outright favourites although they were fleetingly going out of the tournament on Thursday night when losing to Japan, while Costa Rica stumbled into a shock lead against Germany before eventually being beaten.

However, things didn’t go according to plan for Luis Enrique’s side who struggled for ways to break down a deep-lying defence and perhaps they’ll encounter more of the same when clashing with a disciplined Morocco side who were able to keep Croatia and Belgium at bay in Group F.

We certainly aren’t against the idea of a shock result when Spain clash with Morocco and the World Cup betting sites have an attractive price about the outsiders. It’s hard to get away from the prospect of the clash being a low-scoring affair and it might certainly pay to go for Under 2.5 Goals.

Indeed, the first goal is clearly crucial on the basis of how the Moroccan games have played out so far. There could be some merit in backing 1-0 to either side or alternatively placing a World Cup accumulator bet which includes the draw on the Full-Time Result market. This could be a lot closer than the odds suggest.
