Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in five of the last six Spain games.
  • Spain have conceded at least one goal in six of their last seven matches.
  • Portugal have conceded at least one goal in four of their last five contests.

Both teams can score in tournament tune up 

This is one of the tastier pre-tournament friendlies as it could be a Euro 2020 quarter-final dress rehearsal with the draw having set Spain and Portugal on a possible collision course.

Partly because of that, Friday’s meeting in Madrid could turn out to be a phony war between two nations who already know plenty about each other.

They last faced off in October when Portugal were twice denied by the Jose Alvalade woodwork in a 0-0 friendly draw.

And both sides could cancel each other out, for the greater part, on Friday in front of up to 20,000 fans at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Portugal have been brilliant on their travels since their early elimination at the World Cup, winning 73 per cent of their away games and losing only once.

Spain haven’t produced as much polished play as first time around under Luis Enrique but La Furia Roja did thump Germany 6-0 only last October to show they can still be a real force.

Enrique could include his two Europa League winners from Villarreal – Pau Torres and Gerard Moreno – but the quartet of Spaniards involved in the Champions League Final are not available yet.

Likewise, Manchester City’s Portuguese trio of Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo will not feature after being given extra time off too.

We don’t expect the result to be uppermost in either coach’s mind at kick-off with the match just an exercise in bedding in systems and personnel before the Euros – so we’ll swerve the 90 minutes betting.

Each side possesses the quality to create enough chances for the both teams to score option to land – as it has done in five of Spain’s last half-dozen matches – and we think there is value to be had with a 1-1 correct score prediction.
