Why Spain will win

La Roja have not been at their brilliant best in this tournament as we can all see but still they are unbeaten in their last six matches against Russia and should be motivation enough to beat Russia who struggled against Uruguay.

Why Russia will win

The Spanish team is not as fluid as they look and they seem to from “post Lopetegui trauma” and they are clearly relying on the personality of their veterans to drag them through games, so Russia have a chance here with their 12th(their home ground and fans) man advantage .

Spain vs Russia Prediction

This should be a tight match ,Russia have knocked down pre-tournament claims of them being the worst host side of all time and have done well so far but we do not see how their ageing defense can deal with seasoned and hardened strikers like Diego Costa and so we think Spain will grab out a narrow win in this match.,

Our Verdict: A   draw or win for Spain.
