Education City Stadium, Doha Qatar

• Morocco are unbeaten in their last four FIFA World Cup matches (W2 D2). This has equalled their previous best unbeaten streak, which they achieved across the 1970 and 1986 final competitions.

• Three of Morocco’s four wins in World Cup matches have come against European opposition: a 3-1 victory against Portugal in 1986, a 3-0 triumph against Scotland in 1998 and a 2-0 win against Belgium in 2022.

• Three of Spain’s last six World Cup round-of-16 matches have required extra time.

• An appearance for Sergio Busquets would see him equal the Spanish World Cup record, which is jointly held by Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos, who both played 17 times for their country at the finals.
