Morocco v Spain
Morocco are no easy beats and they look big overs to advance to the next stage at $4.40 but if this game goes into extra time as we are predicting, Spain’s depth will be hard to hold out.
Spain will likely dominate control of the ball after averaging 65% possession in the group stage while Morocco averaged 36%, so look for the likes of Pedri, Rodri and Laporte to go over their passing lines.
Morocco didn’t need the ball to dominate their three games, they didn’t concede a goal in all three matches with the exception of an own goal against Canada, keeping clean sheets against Belgium and Croatia.
It could very likely be 0-0 at the end of 90 or 120 minutes so avoid goal scorer bets in this one.

Portugal v Switzerland
Another dangerous underdog in Switzerland who showcased in the group stage they can match it with high scoring teams but also win by parking the bus.
These sides have met twice this year, with Portugal winning 4-0 in June and Switzerland winning 1-0 a week later. This time around looks a tough one to pick.
If Portugal can pivot away from a Ronaldo-centric offence they will be a far stronger side, with the 37-year-old better utilised as a complimentary piece to Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva and Joao Felix.
The latter should be refreshed after being rested for Portugal’s final group game and will have plenty of chances to impact the game, especially if this game goes beyond 90 minutes.
Both these sides showed they aren’t afraid to get physical in the group stage so expect Over 3.5 Cards in this one.
