Match three on Friday sees the biggest game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup so far, with fierce rivals Portugal and Spain locking horns at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi. Portugal come into it as outsiders but it’s a tag that’ll suit them down to the ground as they bid for a second successive major tournament victory.
They won the 2016 European Championships and they’ll be quietly confident that they can use that experience to go far in Russia. Facing them though are a foe that they know well in Spain and they’re expected to be one of the real front runners this summer. But they were rocked on Wednesday following the news of Julen Lopetegui’s move to Real Madrid – resulting in his departure just two days before this encounter so it’s going to be interesting to see how they perform.
Portugal vs Spain @ 19:00 GMT, 15 June 2018
Prediction: Total goals over 2.00 goals in ordinary time at odds 1.83
There’s a big match on Friday night in the football World Cup as Spain are going against Portugal in the last match of the day here.
As these teams are clear favorites to go through to the next round from this group, this match will be the decider which one should go there as the first seed and which one will go as the second seed. I fancy Spain to win this one but its still a coin toss and I’m going with over 2,5 goals here. Even though both teams have showed good defensive abilities then I think we will see both teams to score and at least one of them will go over 1 goal here.
Prediction: Spain to win against Portugal at odds 2.00
Both teams come ready to try to win their first game in the group stage in the World Cup Tournament however Spain been working for a long time the team they had put together for this competition we saw how well it worked against Argentina winning them with only Messi missing 6-0!
This same explosive Spain is what I expect in this year, Portugal without Ronaldo, they show they play in counter attacks only and against a well defense in Spain.
I don’t think that will work and Ronaldo eventually cannot do all the work this Two teams are favorite to qualify to the next round. I think that even Portugal is thinking instead winning their next two games and not focus so much on this one since they will need their players to be fully ready for Morocco and Iran. 2-1 My prediction for this match.
