Fernando Hierro’s men will be looking to seal their place in the knock-out stages of the tournament when they clash with the Atlas Lions

Morocco trade tackles with Spain for their last Group B game on Monday evening at the Kaliningrad Stadium.

Having lost their previous two games in the tournament – against Iran and Portugal - which has seen them rooted at the bottom of the group with no point, going into this game, Herve Renard’s men have only pride to play for as they have no chance of progressing to the round of 16.

Considering their uninspiring form in the tourney thus far and facing the 2010 champions, they have been tagged as massive underdogs for this encounter by Bet365 at the price of (11.00).

Although both sides have not met hitherto to this tie, punters who are courageous can back a stalemate at the odds of (5.00) with the same betting firm.

La Roja will be going all out against the north Africans in their quest to nick the maximum points in this contest considering that they are tied on same four points with Portugal.

After they were held by Fernando Santos’ side in their opening game, they managed to get past Iran in their second encounter, thanks to Diego Costa’s solitary goal.

Knowing that a win will secure their place in the knock-out stages of the competition, they are hot favourites at (1.36) to come out on top here.

Fernando Hierro’s charges have not tasted defeat in their previous 22 outings, with their last loss dating back to July 2016 and are (1.062) to continue the impressive form in this contest.

The Spanish won their previous game without conceding while the Atlas Lions have failed to score a single goal in this tournament which makes the odds of (1.95) an interesting pick for La Roja to win to nil.

Spain have opened the scoring in 11 of their previous 12 games and Bet365 is tipping them to continue the imposing form in front of goal at the price of (1.22).
