Two days earlier, the Portuguese beat the Czechs 4:0 in Prague. Dalot scored a double, Fernandes and Diogo Jota each scored a goal, and Patrik Schick missed a penalty. Remarkably, the Portuguese hit the net five times while scoring four times. Thanks to the victory over the Czechs, the Portuguese side has secured the top spot in Group 2, two points ahead of the Spaniards. That means a draw will be enough for the Portuguese national team to play at home in the Nations League playoffs. Portugal has 10 points after five rounds: three wins, a draw, and a defeat, with a goal difference of 11:2.
In contrast to Portugal, the Spaniards disappointed their fans two days ago when they lost 1:2 to the Swiss. The Spaniards owned the ball 74% of the game time but hit the ball into the net just four times, less than the Swiss. And before that, the Spaniards had achieved two dry victories, including an away win over Switzerland. Spain is in second place before the start of the sixth round, two points behind the leading Portuguese.
Expert Betting Tips
The Portugal-Spain pairing is a draw, with only one TO (2.5) recorded in the five most recent head-to-head encounters at the 2018 World Cup. We doubt the upcoming encounter will be off the trend of recent results, especially with a trip to the Nations League playoffs on the line. As for the outcome, the Portuguese looked more interesting in the fifth round, but the 'European Brazilians' don't need a win; a draw will suffice. And as we know, in Portugal, these teams love to play each other in a draw.
