Time of truth in Group H, where this game will decide if Spain is going to make it out of it or not. La furia surprisingly lost their first game with 0:1 against Switzerland and this really lowered their chances of qualifying .
In the 2nd game David Villa, showed his class and was able to get the team on the right track winning with 2:0 over the team of Honduras.
Now it’s time for their final challenge where they will have to meet the undefeated so far Chile.
Chile is currently taking the 1st spot with 6 points but their lead is not comfortable and secure at all. If the team looses tomorrow with a score of 0:2 and Switzerland wins their game, unluckily they will have to go home and both European teams will qualify.
This is why this game would be very important for them as well.
What to expect from this game?
We all know the power of La furia. I expect Spain to really show a brilliant game. They must win this one and pressure the opponent at all times. A possible early goal in either net will be crucial for the other.
Once one of the teams is in a knockdown, it’s time to be demolished as it will probably happen. There are calculations in which both teams can advance in different scenarios even if either team looses, but I am sure none of them want to depend on the other game
The betting verdict?
Spain – victory @ 1.53 (Bet365.com): Spain must win here to avoid Brazil on the round of 16. Of course they will then face Portugal if they qualify first, but I think you will all agree that it’s better to face Portugal than Brazil. I am expecting a hard to achieve victory here, but yet with so many stars a possible victory.
