Two quarterfinal probables and the European heavyweights will collide in the second match of Group-B to redeem their World Cup supremacy.
When: June 15th, 11:30 PM IST
Where: Fisht Olympic Stadium, Sochi
Two star-studded European powerhouses will square off in the third game of the night right after the match between Morocco and Iran.
This will be the first highly anticipated and a high profile match of this edition of the FIFA World Cup. Spanish team though are coming in this match with a significant change in their team management as the 2010 World Cup-winning coach has been sacked after Juan Lopetegui was approached by the Real Madrid management and thus Fernando Hierro has replaced him.
Sergio Ramos side would like to forget their horrific run in the last edition of the FIFA World cup where they were outclassed in the first round itself. Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo at the age of 33 would be mulling for a World Cup Trophy as it is the only trophy missing in her cabinet. He is the most decorated player of this generation along with Argentina’s Lionel Messi, and a World Cup trophy is something which should help glorify his career even more as this will most probably be his last appearance in the mega event.
Talking about some statistics, Portugal and Spain have met each other on 35 occasions where the former has won on six occasions while the later has won on an impressive rate of 17 times.
