Tuesday's Sport: Last-16 round comes to an end

The last two matches of the first knockout round of the World Cup will be played on Tuesday, with 2010 champions Spain taking on Morocco and Portugal coming up against Switzerland.

The action in Qatar may be dominating the sporting headlines at the moment but there are also three horse racing meetings scheduled for Tuesday - at Southwell, Fontwell and Uttoxeter - while in football's National League relegation-threatened Oldham Athletic take on Boreham Wood.

Morocco plan to shock Spain

What: Morocco v Spain
Where: Education City Stadium, Al Rayyan
When: 15:00, Tuesday 6th December
How to watch: ITV1
Odds: Morocco 11/2, Draw 11/4, Spain 3/5 (Full Time)

Following Senegal’s defeat to England on Sunday, Morocco are the last African side left in the competition and the Atlas Lions face a massive task as they attempt to reach the quarter-finals.

It is the first time they have reached the knockout stages of the World Cup since 1986 and they were one of only three teams - England and Netherlands were the others - to pick up seven points from their three group encounters this time, drawing 0-0 with Croatia before defeating Belgium 2-0 and Canada 2-1.

Spain thrashed Costa Rica 7-0 in their first match in Qatar but then had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Germany before losing 2-1 to Japan which meant they had to settle for second spot in Group E.

Spain, who have doubts over the fitness of defender Cesar Azpilicueta, who came off at half-time against Japan with a calf issue, are currently available at 8/1 to win the World Cup.

Portugal hold all the aces

What: Portugal v Switzerland
Where: Lusail Iconic Stadium, Lusail, Qatar
When: 19:00, Tuesday 6th December
How to watch: ITV1
Odds: Portugal 10/11, Draw 9/4, Switzerland 7/2 (Full-Time)

Portugal beat Ghana 3-2 and Uruguay 2-0 as they topped Group H despite suffering a surprise 2-1 defeat to South Korea.

As well as Cristiano Ronaldo, they also have the likes of Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo to call on and they should have enough strength in depth to see off a resolute Swiss side that pushed Brazil all the way before eventually losing 1-0 in Group G.

Switzerland secured second spot in the group by defeating Cameroon 1-0 and Serbia 3-2, and showed in the latter encounter that they possess an attacking threat when it is needed.

The two teams met twice in the Nations League in June - Portugal, 14/1 to win the World Cup, triumphing in the first clash 4-0 before Switzerland gained some revenge by beating Fernando Santos’ side 1-0 in Geneva one week later.

Oldham desperate for upturn

Oldham Athletic were a Premier League side in 1993/94 but less than three decades later they are struggling to avoid relegation to the sixth tier of English football.

On Tuesday they can be backed at 3/1 to beat a Boreham Wood side that have an FA Cup third-round clash with Accrington Stanley to look forward to next month. A draw is available at 13/5 and a victory for Boreham Wood at 17/20.
