Spain coach Luis Enrique made a surprise change in his team for the World Cup last 16 match against Morocco, playing midfielder Marcos Llorente at right back in place of the injured Cezar Azpilicueta. That was the lone change from Spain’s usual starting lineup, which Luis Enrique employed in their 7-0 triumph over Costa Rica in their first group encounter in Qatar. Azpilicueta, 33, failed not recover from a thigh injury sustained in Spain’s previous game against Japan, and Luis Enrique chose Llorente over Dani Carvajal. Morocco bolstered their midfield with the addition of Selim Amallah to replace attacker Abdelhamid Sabiri.

Morocco and Spain were tied at 0-0 at halftime in their World Cup match, as both teams struggled to create clear-cut goal opportunities. Spain dominated possession at a noisy Education City Stadium, with Morocco prepared to sit back and absorb the pressure, looking for an opportunity to counter-attack. Midway through the half, Spain’s greatest chance fell to Marco Asensio, who ran onto the ball on the left side of the box and fired into the side netting. Morocco’s greatest chance came near the conclusion of the first half, when Nayef Aguerd headed over from close range.
