Spain, a team who was previously beaten by the Swiss have rebounded and are now through to the Round of Sixteen where they face their neighbor and rival, Portugal. The two sides are very deep and have enough talent to ensure that the game will be an exciting one. This will be a showcase of two world renowned all stars who go by the names of Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) and David Villa (Spain).

Portugal, who finished second in Group G behind Brazil finished today with a 0-0 draw against the South Americans. Spain on the other hand had much more pressure and only a win would give them any hope of advancing, they rose to the call and beat Group H runners up Chile 2-1 with goals by David Villa and Andres Iniesta in the first half. Spain, because of their impressive win; win the group and finish the first round with 6 points out of a possible 9 and ahead of Chile by 1 on goal differential.

The game between Spain and Portugal is tough to call because of the amount of super stars that play the role of variables that may or may not show up to play. But I believe that the Spanish will live to fight another day, beating the Portuguese by a scoreline of 2-0.

Sportsbook.com has Spain listed as the favorite sitting at -109 on the moneyline. Portugal, the underdog, are currently sitting at +290 on the moneyline.
