Portugal v Spain betting preview   

Portugal will be underdogs here despite winning the Euros

Portugal secured a 3-0 victory over Algeria in their last International Friendly. Anyway, their pre-tournament warm-up matches were very much a mixed bag with a 3-0 home defeat to the Netherlands as well as draws with Tunisia (2-2) and Belgium (0-0). They have only lost inside 90 minutes three times in the 25 matches since they won Euro 2016. These two teams last met at EURO 2012, in a historic semi-final. The match ended with no goals and Spain advanced to the final on penalties.

Andre Silva and Cristiano Ronaldo are expected to lead the line in a 4-4-2 formation, despite Goncalo Guedes and Bruno Fernandes impressed against Algeria last time out. Pepe looks sure to start at the heart of Portugal's defence with Bruno Alves, Jose Fonte and Ruben Dias competing for the other spot. Cedric Soares should get the nod over Ricardo Pereira for the right back position while Joao Mario is expected to partner William Carvalho in the middle of the park. Bernardo Silva and Ricardo Quaresma should start as offensive wingers.

Spain are all set to bounce back from a dismal 2014 campaign in Brazil

Julen Lopetegui has been sacked, following the news he will take charge at Real Madrid this summer. Fernando Hierro is the new manager. Spain, world champions in 2010, crashed out of the 2014 World Cup at the group stage and they did not fare much better in the Euros two years ago. The Spaniards haven’t been too convincing in their pre-tournament warm-up games with a narrow win over Tunisia and a draw with Switzerland. However, they topped their World Cup qualification group ahead of Italy, with a 3-0 home win over the Azzurri their highlight during the campaign.

Gerard Piquè is a major doubt as the Barcelona defender could miss the first game because of an injury. Jordi Alba and Sergio Ramos are likely starters in defense while Dani Carvajal is not 100% fit and could be replaced by Alvaro Odriozola. The likes of Diego Costa, Rodrigo and Iago Aspas are all vying for a place in attack, with Isco and David Silva expected to play out wide. In midfield, Koke and Thiago Alcantara are in contention for a starting berth alongside Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets.
