Morocco took full advantage of the underwhelming play of Belgium's golden generation and Croatia, last year's runners-up, to surprise everyone by finishing unbeaten in their world cup group.Regragui's team is unbeaten in eight games, during which they have only given up two goals. They are aiming to become the first Moroccan team to reach the quarterfinals and they may also break African history, as their four-game unbeaten streak at the World Cup is only surpassed by Cameroon's five between 1982 and 1990.
Yassine Bounou, the starting goalkeeper for Morocco, was able to play the full 90 minutes against Canada after feeling unwell and having to leave at the last minute. He can now expect to be included in an untampered XI.
Despite having some ankle issues, Achraf Hakimi is anticipated to be in good physical condition. However, the PSG defender was one of the stars who did not participate in full training on Saturday.

Some may view La Roja coming in second place as a blessing given that they would have faced Croatia in the round of 16, but Enrique is fully aware of how challenging Tuesday's game will be.
Spain was knocked out of the 2018 World Cup in the round of 16, but they have never experienced consecutive eliminations at this stage of the tournament. Four years have passed since Spain and Morocco faced off in the group stages of the World Cup in Russia, when La Roja was credited with an Iago Aspas equalizer in a 2-2 draw. Dani Olmo, David Raya, and Cesar Azpilicueta were absent from Enrique's training session on Friday, however it was thought that the former was only resting after a taxing group time.
According to Enrique, Azpilicueta and Raya will be present, although Simon was always going to get the start despite his mistake the last time.
Against Japan, Enrique did not hesitate to start the young duo of Nico Williams and Alejandro Balde, although Ferran Torres and Jordi Alba can anticipate returning to the starting lineup for the knockout rounds.
