Portugal and Spain measure their strength in a World Cup match (Group Stage). There is no record of official clashes between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last confrontation was on 27-06-2012 and ended with the result: Portugal (0-0) Spain.
The team had direct access to this group stage, so they will play their first match in this competition. The team arrives at this meeting after a victory with Algeria by (3-0). Portugal won 6, drew 3 and lost 1 of their last 10 matches for all competitions. His attack has scored regularly, as he has achieved in 8 of the last 10 games. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 4 times but managed to turn the score in 2. There are 1 periods in the last 20 matches played in all competitions: he suffered 5 of his 14 goals between minutes (31′-45 ‘).
The selection of the Quinas has grown in recent years and currently occupies the 4th position of the FIFA Ranking. If we look at the whole story it is possible to notice that the Portuguese are competing for the fifth consecutive World Championship, with the best partition being in 1966 when they finished in 3rd place. It is important to note that Portugal are the current European champions and for this reason they are looking to make a great campaign in this World Cup. Usually coach Fernando Santos lines 4-4-2 privileging ball possession and organized bouts, however, in this confrontation, he must use a strategy based on counterattack: Bernardo Silva is an expert player in the conduct of the ball for the attack . On the other hand, the game of Portugal passes all over the star Cristiano Ronaldo, player who should line up in the starting eleven with full force. It seems that the coach counts on all the summoned for this competition.
The team makes its debut in this edition of the competition, since they did not have to play any of the qualifiers that preceded this group stage. The team arrives in this match after a victory with Tunisia by (0-1). In the last 10 matches played in all competitions, Spain won 7 and drew 3. Their attack has scored regularly, having scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches. In their games there is a tendency to score goals, as 21 of their last 23 games have finished with over 1.5 goals. This is a team that scores often first: opened the scoring in 13 of their last 15 games, of those 13 reached the break in lead in 9 and managed to maintain the lead until the end of the 90 ‘in 9.
Spain is one of the great teams of world football, counts on a World Championship, won in 2010, and three European Championships, recorded in 1964, 2008 and 2012. However, we can say that the Spanish come to this competition with some sorrows, as they were eliminated in the group stage of the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016 were not beyond the round of 16. In this way, it is evident that Spain looks to this World Championship with great confidence and ambition. In this match against Portugal, coach Julen Lopetegui should line up in 4-3-3 with Diego Costa being the most offensive reference of the Spanish team. In addition, Spain should opt for a more dominating strategy as it presents athletes of great technical quality. Gerard Piqué and Daniel Carvajal are recovered and have trained without limitations.
