Team News
Morocco number one Yassine Bounou, who felt unwell just before the win over Belgium and had to withdraw at the last second, was able to complete the full 90 minutes against Canada and will expect to form part of an untouched XI.

Achraf Hakimi - who provided a delightful assist for En-Nesyri's strike - is expected to be passed fit despite nursing some ankle problems, but the Paris Saint-Germain right-back was one of several starters not risked in full training on Saturday.

The likes of Ziyech, Sofyan Amrabat and Sofiane Boufal were also granted a well-earned rest, but there is nothing to suggest that the trio will not be given the green light for Tuesday's game.
Morocco possible starting lineup:
Bono; Hakimi, Saiss, Aguerd, Mazraoui; Ounahi, Amrabat, Sahiri; Ziyech, En-Nesyri, Boufal

As for Spain, Enrique was without the trio of Dani Olmo, David Raya and Cesar Azpilicueta in Friday's training session, although the former was just believed to have been rested after a gruelling group period.

However, Azpilicueta - who came off at half time against Japan - is dealing with pain in his calf, while the reasons for Raya's absence are yet to be explained, but Simon was always expected to be handed the gloves despite his error last time out.

Enrique was not afraid to hand starts to the up-and-coming duo of Nico Williams and Alejandro Balde against Japan, but Ferran Torres and Jordi Alba will expect to return to the first XI for the knockout stages.
Spain possible starting lineup:
Simon; Carvajal, Rodri, Laporte, Alba; Pedri, Busquets, Gavi; Torres, Morata, Olmo
Prediction: Morocco 1-2 Spain (a.e.t)
