FIFA World Cup 2018 Portugal vs Spain Preview and Prediction

FIFA World Cup – Portugal vs. Spain 6/15/18 Odds, Preview and Prediction

The second game of the Group B between Portugal and Spain will take place at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi on June 15th. Two best teams in the group will meet in one of the most-anticipated duels at the World Cup, and the fans will be pleased to witness a potential spectacle already in the second day of the tournament. Both teams are favorites to make it through to the Round of 16, and it would be extremely surprising not to see them in the second phase.

Portugal

The Navigators qualified to the World Cup for the seventh time in the nation’s history, their fifth participation in a row, and Portugal’s best result so far is the third place back in 1966 in England, when Eusebio was the best player on the planet. After a big disappointment four years ago in Brazil when they failed to advance to the Round of 16, the Portuguese surprised many with the European Championship victory in 2016, so they are considered a dark horse at this competition.

The Fernando Santos selected the core of the team with Cristiano Ronaldo at the helm and other experienced players such as Bruno Alves, Pepe, José Fonte, João Moutinho, and Ricardo Quaresma who are representing their country for many years. On the other hand, the coach picked some younger players who will likely lead the new generation, so Raphaël Guerreiro, Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, André Silva, Gonçalo Guedes, and Gelson Martins will get the opportunity to shine in Russia and secure their place in the squad for the next big tournament.

Still, Santos decided not to call the likes of Fábio Coentrão, André Gomes, Nani, and the nation’s hero Eder who scored a winner in the EURO finals against France, but the biggest surprise is perhaps the omission of Rúben Neves. The 21-year-old midfielder had a fantastic season for Wolves in the Championship and drove his team forward to the Premier League, and while Portugal’s midfield would be a lot stronger with him, Santos opted not to give Neves a call.

The midfield is still the strongest part of the team, but the Portuguese might have problems at the back as Pepe, Alves, and Jose Fonte past their best and could make some mistakes along the way. Portugal didn’t record a win in the last three games, losing 3-0 to Holland, while their most recent tilt with Belgium ended without goals.

 

 

Spain

The Red Fury secured their place at the World Cup for the 15th time, and the 2010 WC champions experienced a disappointing EURO in France, finishing the competition in the 1/8 finals after a 2-0 loss to Italy. Spain is labeled as one of the favorites out of shadows this time around and they are expected to go smoothly to the Round of 16.

Julen Lopetegui also made some surprising decisions when selecting 23 players to go to Russia as he left out Álvaro Morata, Luis Alberto, one of the best players in the Italian Serie A this year, Suso who also played well for AC Milan, José Callejón, and Marcos Alonso who still doesn’t have luck with national coaches as he played just one game for Spain so far. Alonso is the best left-back in the Premier League, but Chelsea’s man is left behind in favor of Jordi Alba and Nacho Monreal.

Diego Costa will lead the line, while David Silva and Isco will likely play behind him, with Andrés Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, and Koke in the heart of midfield. The defense is also strong with Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos, and with one of the best goalkeepers in the world, David de Gea, Spain could even finish the group stage without conceding a single goal.

Since that mentioned defeat to the Italians at the EURO 2016, the Red Fury is without a loss in the previous 19 matches, but they did draw three out of the last four, most recently with Switzerland a couple of days ago, when it was 1-1 in Villarreal.

 

Betting Prediction

These rivals have met on 11 occasions thus far, with the first clash was played at the WC in 1934, and the latest at the EURO 2012, when the Spaniards defeated Portugal in the semis on penalties. Both teams have excellent squads and although I think Spain has a slightly better one, I don’t think we will have a winner on this one. A draw for each team could be a good result if they manage to beat Morocco and Iran, the underdogs in this group.

Prediction World Cup 2018 match between Portugal vs Spain will end up with a score of 0 : 1 the win’s Spain . Portugal 0 vs Spain 1.
