Spain is hosting Portugal at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in the International Friendly soccer matchup. Spain is undefeated in their last 6 games with 3 wins and 3 draws. Portugal is also in good form with 3 wins and a draw in their last 4 games.

Spain has started their World Cup qualifications well, with a draw and 2 wins in a row, and they are now at the top of their group with 7 points, 6 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals. In the upcoming Euro Cup, Spain is in a group with Poland, Slovakia, and Sweden, and they are the favorites to win this group, but it will be tough. In their last game against Kosovo at home, Spain was the dominant team with an impressive 80% of ball possession, a massive 11 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and a high 92% of the correct passes. The opponent wasn’t great, but it’s always nice to have a dominant game and to win it. Spain has won this match 3-1. As far as their roster for the Euro Cup goes, Spain is solid, but I think they might lack depth in the attacking end, and that used to be their strongest part. Spain is unpredictable, but they are still a good team, and they could go far.

Portugal will be playing in the toughest group in the Euro Cup, and that is Group F with France, Germany, and Hungary. In their 3 World Cup qualification games, Portugal has 2 wins and a draw, and they are at the top of their group with 7 points, 6 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals. Portugal is a pretty stacked-up team, and they are a good team, but their defense is getting older, and I think we are at the point when they are too old. Portugal was playing against Luxembourg on the road in their last game, and they were the better team with 57% of ball possession, 11 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Portugal has conceded a goal first in this game, but they were able to turn this game around, and they have won this match 1-3. It’s hard to say what is better, Portugal’s offense or midfield, but they both look really impressive. When Ronaldo is playing, Portugal is a much different team than without him, but I gotta way, I like Portugal better without Ronaldo because they are playing better and more effective soccer.

This is the matchup between teams of similar quality, but this is a friendly game, and I don’t think either of the teams will be too eager to blindly attack. The form is important ahead of the big competition like Euro Cup is, and for that reason, I see this game ending in a draw.
