FIFA World Cup 2018

POR vs ESP Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

The third match of Match Day 2 will be one of the most awaited matches of this year’s World Cup as Cristiano Ronaldo and company will set their Portuguese sail against the mighty Spanish.  This is going to be ballistic as La Roja lifted the World Cup in 2010 and also won the Euro 2012 whereas their opponents for the game are the current European Champions.

Despite being the champions of Europe, Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal is the 8th favourite team to win this World Cup which would be a sad issue for CR7 and company but this shouldn’t be a concern for them as in the Euro 2016, they were also not on the top favourites to be the winner. Since Euro 2016, Portugal has been very difficult to defeat and have just lost two games in their last 29 games. With Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks it is believed that Portugal will fight till the end and would eye for a top four finish at least.

On the other hand, we have the mighty Spanish side that has been unbeaten in their last 20 games under their former coach Julen Lopetegui. Due to unfortunate events, their coach was sacked by the football management and now it would be interesting how Spain continue on their World Cup journey. The Spanish defense has been praised everywhere as they head to this tournament.

This FIFA World Cup 2018, Group B, match is to be played at Olimpiyskiy Stadion Fisht at 18:00 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 2 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

  2. In all 36 encounters between these two teams Spain may have won most of the matches but in recent 16 encounters, Portugal have been the dominant team with five wins and seven draws

 

Important Live Updates:

07:00 PM,

Portugal – The reigning European Champions have reported no injury issues ahead of this match with all the 23 players available for selection.
Former Real Madrid player Pepe will most probably start while Jose Fonte and Bruno Alves are fighting to partner him at centre-back. In attacking department, either Andre Silva or Goncalo Guedes will join Cristiano Ronaldo in the forward line.
For Spain, the only major concern is the fitness of Daniel Carvajal who returned to training for the first time since the Champions League final. He remains a big doubt and Alvaro Odriozola will be given the nod should Carvajal doesn’t pass a late fitness test.

Winning formula – It’s a game that may very well decide who will be taking the bragging rights of topping this group. We know Portugal are European champions but betting against a powerful Spanish team could cost you some bucks in this game if you happen to be a fantasy football lover. So choose more Spanish player in your team with Cristiano Ronaldo from Portugal should be a mainstay in your fantasy squad.

POR vs ESP Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

 

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

 

Portugal tend to start slow in major finals, as they have not got off the mark with three points since Euro 2008. Spain should perform better than four years ago when barely putting up a fight in their title defence, meanwhile, but they have been rocked by the loss of their manager and may take time to settle down. A draw seems an obvious choice, and a result that neither side would be too disappointed with ahead of matches against Morocco and Iran.
