Spain v Russia betting preview   

Spain have been below their best so far in Russia

Spain topped group B despite their only victory came via a 1-0 win over Iran. They started with a 3-3 draw against Portugal and recorded a 2-2 draw against Morocco last time out,  rescued only by a late Iago Aspas strike. The Spaniards have secured a place on the easier side of the draw. They can reach the semi-finals without playing any of the standout nations in the world with Brazil or Belgium awaiting them in the last four. Furthermore, are unbeaten in their last 23 games (W15 D8), the longest current run amongst the 32 teams at the 2018 World Cup.

Spain manager Fernando Hierro has no injury concerns ahead of the game. He is considering a change in goal but with Pepe Reina carrying a knock, Kepa could be called upon to replace De Gea. Marco Asensio is also being considered for a starting role, although it is unclear who would be demoted out of Andres Iniesta, Isco and David Silva. Diego Costa looks sure to spearhead the attack while Sual Niguez, Koke and Thiago Alcantara are in contention to partner Sergio Busquets in the middle of the park.

Russia shortcomings were made obvious in the defeat at the hands of Uruguay

Russia breezed past Saudi Arabia (5-0) and Egypt (3-1) but they suffered a 3-0 loss to Uruguay in the final group stage fixture. The tournament hosts have shown far more firepower than anyone expected with 8 goals in the group stage, more than any other side in Groups A to F. These sides met as recently as last November in an entertaining friendly in Saint Petersburg which ended 3-3.

Defender Igor Smolinkov suspended while midfielder Alan Dzagoev is still out through injury. Mario Fernandes is expected to return to the XI while Denis Cheryshev should retain his place as winger, after scoring three goals in group stage. Yuri Zhirkov and Golovin are also likely to feature having been dropped to the bench for the Uruguay showdown. Artem Dzyuba should get tne nod over Fedor SMolov up front, altough the latter bagged a brace against Spain last November.
