Our in-depth algorithm, known as the World Cup predictor has given the World Cup 2018 predictions for the match Portugal vs Spain. The predictions are based on several factors but first, let us take a look at the match preview.
This is a match of Group B. Owing to the massive expectations, both sides will be hoping to kick-off their campaign with a win.
Portugal have not been in the best form ahead of the World Cup. They have won just one in their last 5 international matches, meaning they have plenty of work to do.
The opening match against Spain means that they have one the World Cup favourites against them, and so they would be hoping to be at their very best from the start. One thing for Portugal would be that this might be Cristiano Ronaldo’s final world cup, and therefore, he would hope to come with all his weapons fully loaded.
Spain, on the other hand, would also look to make a good start to the World Cup 2018. They have been fairly well over their last couple of international matches, not losing any over the course of last 5. The Spanish side is loaded with remarkable young talent, and is complemented by some fabulous senior players, making them one of the most complete sides in world football.
