Spain vs Morocco
7pm BST – Kaliningrad
Iran 0-2 Portugal
Iran made Spain work hard for their 1-0 victory and I think they will make it hard for Portugal too. However, with Cristiano Ronaldo on a mission it seems, Portugal should be able to win this one.
Spain 2-0 Morocco
Spain didn’t look too convincing against Iran. You’d have expected them to keep possession a lot better. However, with the change of manager, maybe they are just struggling to get going. Expect them to win here with the quality players they have.
IRAN vs PORTUGAL
Cristiano Ronaldo to score a header – 8/1
Ronaldo has been in top form and scored with his head against Morocco. His prowess at set pieces could be vital for Portugal here.
Portugal 2-0 – 5/1
Iran don’t concede many but, having played 2 games already, they may be a bit tired. This could allow Portugal to pick them off.
SPAIN vs MOROCCO
Diego Costa to score a brace – 6/1
This World Cup has seen a few top strikers find form and Costa is one of those. He is Spain’s main goal threat and will be confident of adding to his tally.
Costa first goal and Spain 2-0 – 11/1
Spain will be looking to see off Morocco comfortably after not really firing on all cylinders so far. However, with Costa in form they should have enough to see off Morocco here.
