      Yep by all means this sounds like underish affair, a game that noone wants to lose. Portugal prolly
      set-up defensive tactics to close the shop like they did in Belgium friendly and they are damn good at it. Spain not really connecting at all cilindres as of yet, struggling to create, at least they didnt looked particulary frighting in last 2 friendlies vs Switzerland and Tunisia. They will have possesion, lots of useless passes, Portugal deep in their half, really all the ingrediants for a 0-0 kind of game unless foolish mistakes at the back or wonder goals.
      My country is the world...and my religion is to do good.

        Lopetegui sacked and odds on Portugal dropping like a stone. Portuguese could use this to get something in the opener, they don't look much weaker to me even without this drama.
        He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.

          Now is the time to buy Spain... Spain DNB looks like a very good bet to me. I don't think the sacking of Lopetegui will have any impact on the game - none whatsoever... I've said it elsewhere but the Portuguese team looks very overrated to me. Their CB's are aged, their MF isn't creative, Ronaldo is still good but not in his prime... If this was the last match day, both sides might have settled for a draw and sat back but I don't see that happening. I would not exclude a draw but Spain are a much likelier winner for me.

            I totally agree with Wiser here. Spain DNB looks promising.

            I see Portugal struggling to beat even Morocco and Iran, they are too conservative when going forward. Spain midfield with a lot more creativity than the likes of Joao Mario (one of the most anti-football midfielder to play at top level, together with Andre Gomes), Adrian Silva etc.

              I disagree here regardless of Lopetegui situation. Portugal has a winning coach leading them and would have the edge here either way. Ronaldo was brilliant whole CL campaign, he is still pretty much dominant, and now he finally has some help in attacking third with Bernardo Silva and Guedes. This being a first game, both teams should be cautious, and in the end would sign up for a draw. Hence, supporting Portugal on +0.5 handicap is the only way for me.
              He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.

                i agree with prija ...

                tough my analysis of spain is biased both ways ... i doubt portugal cant be such underdog .. now even more ... all turmoil may affect player in focus ..
                for this first one ...


                old defenders ... age was never a huge factor in minus with central defender ..exp is a plus for them usually ..

                lack creativity ¿?¿ i do not know all squad but portie footballer are usually quite sharp in that department ... actually silva play close to midfield .. theyll probably play like spain at 10´with two tactical ones .... then free rol for carcking units like silva guedes and CR ....

                now reg spain and new coach and situation i´d not write us off to achieve same results like f.i reach last 4 wich would be success sort of ..... whatever circumstances ..

                zidane and his rather laclustre tactics at some times-..,, im not saying hes the worst coach ... but hes cert not in a top 20 id think off just from the one coaching top sides ...
                managed to win 3 straight CL .... so clearly other factors aply ... at knock out ..competition ..

                hierro is a guy that can talk with players and that has strong personality enough to at least distate smthg .. and at the end 5 or 6 players on starting line up will have had behind their back hundred of top games through career so they may very well self manage ....

                probably people writing off spain takes presure off and benefits .... all factor togueter make players be more united ...

                  I also see Portugal much stronger than on other times (far better than at Euro, where they won how they won...)

                  Ronaldo finally has some support upfront with Guedes there, who may become one of the nice surprises of the tournament.

                  I watched all Spain & Portugal friendlies before this World Cup and I am impressed by how much Portugal changed their gameplay (from a static team to a rather offensive and fast team). They played well offensively agains Tunisia (who has impressive defensively vs. Spain), at the same level with Belgium (draw) and totally distroyed Algeria (3-0, could have scored more)

                  They also have a decent bench now, with Andre Silva, Joao Mario and, why not, Quaresma for support.

                    I don't get the love for Portugal but I've got to respect Prija and Litost who are smart cookies... For me, however, Portugal are the most overrated side at the WC (which happens to be in the same group with what I consider the most underrated side namely Morocco)... In qualifying they finished on the same point score with Switzerland (but beat them on goal difference) and I believe that is a realistic reflection of where they're at - on par with Switzerland... Overall that's not bad but for me they're just not in the first tier of European football (i.e. Germany, Spain and France followed by Belgium and then England)... They got on a very lucky run at the Euros but that's not likely to repeat itself... Sure Ronaldo still is good, the stats show that he's scored as many goals this season as in the past. But these days, he's pretty much just a penalty box striker no longer a winger. He needs the balls to come from MF. And I'm not sure the Portuguese MF will deliver... Guedes and Silva are good but not world class. They're not lethal upfront... Portugal are good at defense but the key players are aging, the midfield is uninspiring and lacks creativity. The attacks are cross-heavy and rely on Ronaldo... The whole system is very defensive and lacks dynamism... My hunch is that Spain and Morocco will beat them and that they will be packing their bags sooner rather than later... But I'm not going to bet much on this match since I've already taken Spain and Morocco to advance at what I consider to be juicier odds...

                          Seems like is a total chaos inside Spain camp. Just read that it was a huge conflict between Ramos and the president of the Federation over Lotepegui situation. Usually this bad atmosphere brings bad results. Portugal is a team with a couple of skilled players that can score at any time. I don't see them loosing tomorrow. So, hosts dnb (2.80) is my choice.

                              Haven't take my final decision yet but Spain to win by 1 goal difference at 3,60 is my option (0-1 or 1-2 is fine by me)
