Spain vs Portugal Live Stream

Another big game in FIFA World Cup 2018. Spain will face Portugal today. On a World Cup stage, there are not too many matches which have as much of a history as Spain vs. Portugal.  Both teams are among the most powerful football teams in the world and have a fierce rivalry which is known to the football world as The Iberian War or Iberian Derby.

The two teams have faced off 36 times on the football pitch, out of which 18 times Spain has been victorious, 12 matches have been drawn, and Portugal emerged victorious 6 times. However, the latter has risen significantly on the international arena over the last 20 odd years, and under the leadership of Christian Ronaldo, they are rated as one of the top teams in the world now.

The last time these two teams met on the World Cup stage was during the pre-quarterfinal of 2010 World Cup. That match was won by Spain courtesy a solitary 63rd-minute goal by David Villa, which led to a lot of controversies later on as it was a goal from offside (highlighted by ESPN).

Irrespective of the controversy clouds, Spain went on to win their maiden World Cup title that year. However, under the leadership of Christian Ronaldo, Portugal are on a resurgence, and they also won the UEFA Champions Trophy in 2016. The history and the current form of both the teams assures one thing that this is going to be one match that football lovers from all over the world will be keenly watching.
