Portugal and Spain can't hide anything from each other, they are both very familiar with the way their opponents are playing.

Portugal traveled to Moscow as the European Champions and the expectations from F.Santos' team are extremely high. Valencia's winger C.Guedes is perhaps their most improved player this season. He scored two of the three goals in their last preparation game against Algeria (3-0) and Santos probably will trust for the starting eleven. The game vs Algeria was the only one of the three preparation games that superstar C.Ronaldo played, his first after the Champions League final.
Spain's roster is full and Lopetegui has a difficult task to choose his starting line up. If I was asked for a disadvantage for Spainish team, that could be the lack of power in midfield. The only absence for Spain in this game wil be winger Carvajal, who was injured in the Champions League final. Nacho or Odriozola are prepared for a place in first starting 11.
Traditionally Spain were more powerful than Portugal, and still are, despite the fact that C.Ronaldo and his teammates won the EURO 2016. Everytime they play against each other I support the draw. These two teams can't hide anything from each other, they are both very familiar with the way that their opponents are playing, actually there is no room available for the personal talent of their players. Draw and low scoring will be my call in this game.
