Spain vs Russia Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Spain progressed into the knockout stages despite picking up just one win in three group matches. The 2010 world champions have been far from perfect. There have been occasions when they have found it hard to contain opposition, while Spain have also struggled against defensive teams. Russia may offer more of an attacking threat and the 3-0 loss against Uruguay may not be a barometer for judging the host nation. Even though Russia have never been able to get past Spain in five attempts, this might be a match where they use home advantage in the best possible way. I would go with Russia to qualify.

Spain’s only clean sheet of the tournament came against Iran, who had 11 players behind the ball at all times. Russia failed to score only once in the tournament and they had some scintillating victories – like the 5-0 result against Saudi Arabia in the opening game. A great option would be to choose both teams to score.

Russia to qualify – 11/4

Both teams to score – 11/10
