Match facts

Portugal

  • Portugal and Spain are favourites to advance from Group B and their opening clash will likely determine the group winner.
  • Portugal have failed to score in each of their last two opening matches at World Cups – drawing 0-0 with Ivory Coast in 2010 and losing 4-0 to Germany last time out.
  • Cristiano Ronaldo will obviously be the key to nation’s success. He will come into the event high on confidence after securing his third consecutive Champions League trophy with Real Madrid.

Spain

  • Spain have not lost since they were knocked out of Euro 2016 by Italy, with their recent friendly win against Tunisia stretching their unbeaten record to 20 matches.
  • Spain eliminated Portugal 1-0 in the round of 16 at the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The Spaniards would move on to win that tournament.
  • The last competitive match between the two countries was the semi-final of the 2012 Euros in which Spain would eliminated Portugal 4-2 after penalties and once again move on to win the title.

Predictions

Both teams have been very tough to break down lately which is why we can hardly see a high-scoring contest here. The Under 2.5 goals FT looks to be the standout bet worth backing at the 1.60 odds. We will alternatively go with Spain to confirm the quality and win at 1.90.

Final Score 0 - 1
