Portugal Team News & Form

There's little doubting that Portugal and Spain will dominate this division and the only question is who are going to contest a last-8 place against who: Russia, Uruguay, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Honestly, any opponent looks quite beatable and should pose little threat to the likes of Spain and Portugal.

Selection of the Quinas have done exceptionally under Fernando Santos in recent years, qualifying for the World Cup 2018 finals as Group B dominants who amassed 27 points of the possible 30 after reaching the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup, where they exited thanks to Chile in a 0-1 extra time defeat last year, having previously won the Euro 2016 in what was a hard-fought European campaign for the Portuguese.

Spain Team News & Form

Similarly, following the 2-0 1/8 finals elimination by Italy at the Euro 2016 at Stade de France, Spain have not suffered a defeat in the course of two years, which counts 18 games including the World Cup qualifiers. As much as Santos's men, Spain team led by Julen Lopetegui took full control over their qualifying group and rarely looked threatened.

It was not a big World Cup warm-up campaign for La Furia Roja as they had played only six friendlies since the 1-0 win over Israel in October 2017, the most remarkable of all was a 6-1 mauling of Argentina in March but they also drew to Russia, Germany and Switzerland - and will the lack of winning spirit tell at the finals in Russia?

Why are our predictions certain to succeed?

Seeing these two teams not qualify from Group B is improbable and I don't think the managers will have their players put 100% of their efforts here, realizing they might be drawn pretty much with anybody from Group A further in the knock-out stage. In their last five head-to-head clashes on all fronts, the rivals hold a mixed record with both sides winning two to only one draw, a goalless semi-final affair at the Euros 2012.

That said, from our perspective, Spain and Portugal are expected to go slowly into action in Russia and get off relying more on tactical football and defensive qualities, having not produced goals from both sides in their last five mutual games.
