For FIFA World Cup, teams have been divided into different groups. Group B consists of 4 teams which also includes Portugal and Spain. The top 2 teams out of 4 will qualify for the other round. This summer season, one of the most interesting match is going to take place between Portugal and Spain on June 15th. The match will be played on the Mordovia Arena in Saransk. Both the countries share a long background of rivalry and have faced off each other in many tournaments. Portugal and Spain’s final squad consists of 23 players. Portugal and Spain are the most favorite teams for the spectators in this group. This is going to be the most nerve wrecking match for football lovers. Ronaldo has recently tweeted that they are all set for Russia.
Portugal is one of the football teams that are striving hard to be a part of FIFA World Cup finals but unfortunately, they could not make it yet. It is on 4th number in FIFA ranking. Portugal is all set to make a statement in FIFA 2018 in Russia after winning UEFA EURO 2016 and conquering Europe immensely. Last world cup has been an unfortunate tournament for them as they could not progress after being defeated miserably from the United States and Germany. Fernando Santos who was hired as a coach in 2014 after a successful career with Greece has been key for Portugal success at Euro 16 and FIFA qualification. His defensive approach worked wonderfully in winning Euro 2016, let’s see if it works in the world cup. Goalkeeping coach, Ricardo Peres has also been working effectively with the team to achieve desired goals. Christiano Ronaldo is the lead star player with approaching 33 years of age but his latest success against Egypt made him the 3rd highest scorer and if Portugal team can build upon that it is going to work wonders for Portugal.
Spain was a champion in 2010 but they were eliminated last time in the group stage of the world cup. Spain also had to see a shameful exit in knockout stage in Euro 2016. But since the coach Julen Lopetegui took charge of the team, Spain has been unbeatable winning more than 18 games and lately their performance in Madrid against invincible Argentina with 6-1 victory was amazing. Spain seems to set a great start for 2018 World Cup after having a good time in recent friendlies and qualifiers. Spain comprises of some talented and skilled players but Sergio Ramos is the star. After Iker Casillas who scored 167 caps during his career, Sergio is second – most capped player in Spain. He was also the captain of La Roja and played very well for the teams that got the victory in two European Championships and one world cup between 2008 and 2012.

Match Key Points
Although it was a shocking exit for Spain from 2014 World Cup, today their performance look terrific like the ones they had in 2010 when they won the trophy. The coach Lopetegui seems to have some nice players at hand, he just needs to find the right balance. He has shown his will greatly in the qualifiers to take the trophy home.
Spain’s biggest weakness has been its inability to use all territory and dominance into effective goals. The lack of a confirmed first-choice centre-forward for the tournament is the main issue that Spain is facing to effectively use their strengths. Rodrigo Moreno and Diego Costa have played as reference links but their suitability for the desired roles is still questionable. Alvaro Morata is out for his poor Chelsea performance. Diego Costa adds a lot at the striking end but does not link up perfectly. Rodrigo is quick and flexible as the striker but does not give much at corners.
- Sergio Ramos will be playing as defender and most likely to score goals when most needed.
- Heartthrob Gerard Pique is in the team as a defender.
- Koke being in the center and midfielder is going to create as many chances for goals as possible.
Portugal’ Christiano Ronaldo, the captain has played with many of Spain’s players for Real Madrid, so this is going to give Portugal a clear advantage to understand the weak and strong points of the opponent. Also with the emergence of No.9 in the team, it will finally solve many issues that the coach has been facing earlier.
Knowing the history, Portugal always has relied heavily on play-offs to reach mega rounds of the tournament. Coach Santos has some of his own issues for defensive line which does not put Portugal for a very strong contending position in this tournament.
- Ronaldo as the leading defender and goal scorer will just be in time to score goals when needed.
- Rangers’ centre back Bruno Alves will play as a defender and can do anything with captain Ronaldo.

Both teams have huge experience and have a lot of star player. But on the basis of the qualifiers and the way both teams are performing, I would like to predict that Spain is going to win. Ronaldo may have a huge score on his plate but Spain seems to achieve the momentum of 2010 Finals.
