    Despite the conspiracy theories about Spain losing on purpose against Japan, I hope Morocco will try to mimic Japan in that game and use the players who can press. Maybe use a 3-43 formation too, it looked solid in the end of the two games against Belgium and Canada :

    Llorente is a strange change from Enrique here .
    We didn't change anything same line-up against Croatia & Belgium.

    Considering that these two share land and sea borders, can we classify this as a derby?

    For Morocco it is a derby.

    I doubt the Spaniards see that as such.

    Morocco has the worst fans in the entire WC , they whistle whenever the opponents have position and the problem is they play counter so the majority of the match you hear this , so annoying.

    Yes, quite honestly the constant whistling is beyond annoying.

    This from a neutral point of view.

    They are mimicing Turkish fans.

    The Turks do that even in their domestic league.

    Didn't Spain have like 82% possession in their last game? If there's any repeat of that, it's going to be quite a long night...

    To me that is a proper “homefield” advantage. Didn’t mind it at all when attending Morocco-Canada.
