Venue: Estadio Jose Alvalade (Lisbon).
It is an Iberian derby, but a friendly, yet entertainment is guaranteed when Portugal welcome Spain to the Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon on Wednesday.
The teams are meeting after a 2 year gap and we saw one of the most entertaining game of the World Cup 2018 when these two locked horns in Russia. The match ended 3-3, Ronaldo scored a hattrick including the first and late equalizer for his team. Meantime, Diego Costa scored twice and Real Madrid’s Nacho complete the list for Spain.
Both teams have some important fixtures coming up after this. Portugal who made a stunning start to their UEFA Nations League campaign on back-to-back wins will travel to France and then welcome Sweden to their home turf.
Spain started off with a 1-1 draw against Germany went on to thrash Ukraine 4-0 in the next round are poised to welcome Sweden and then travel to Ukraine to wrap up the round of competitive fixtures in October.
Portugal vs Spain Head-to-head
Between, 2002 and now, Portugal and Spain met 7 times across all competition and the teams share 2 wins each if you get rid of any games decided on penalties and extra-time.
Their meeting in Portuguese soil for a friendly was in 2010 and the hosts run riot wit a thumping 4-0 win.
Portugal vs Spain Prediction
There will be some fireworks when these Iberian neighbors meet at Lisbon on Wednesday. Both teams are on fire form and looked sharp in the attacking front.
It is too hard to separate them on paper and I believe the scenario will be same on the football field as well. But what this game promise is goals and this is why my primary pick is both teams to score.
They key stats for punters for this particular match are as follows. Portugal are unbeaten in 17 home matches, while Spain lost just 1 of their last 22 away from home and scored are scored at least once in each of them.
I will back the full-time draw along with it since either teams want to keep their unbeaten run intact.
