Match: Spain vs Tunisia
Competition: International Friendly
Time / Date: 21:45h / 9 June 2018
Venue: Krasnodar Stadium (Krasnodar, Russia)
In a final check before the World Cup in Russia, the team from Spain will record a match with the tough Tunisians.
La Roca are unbeaten in their last 19 games (13 wins, 6 draws) their last loss is at the Euro in France in 2016, from the Italian team with 2:0. After leaving Andres Iniesta in the direction of China, this will probably be his last participation in the World Cup finals, Lopetegui will rely on the qualities of his former captain with the clear memory of his winning goal in the 2010 finals which helps Iniesta to win the world title for the Spanish side. Another player under the leadership of Lopetegui is in perfect shape and that is David Silva, who scored 11 goals under his control.
Ramos and Company have scored 60 goals in their last 19 games with their top mentor.
The team of Tunisia hasn’t lost in last 9 games (5 wins, 4 draws), their last loss is from Morocco 1-0 in March 2017. The Tunisians qualified for the World Cup by winning their group without any pressure.
After the injury of one of their stars Youssef Msakni, they will mainly rely on Anis Al Badri as a major threat to their opponents. The Cartagena Eagles managed to score at least 1 goal in their last 4 games and here we can expect the same maybe.
Tunis and Spain have one match between them and La Roja are the winners with 3:1 final result.
The Spanish team is one of the well-preserved teams with their 60 goals scored (19 games) at the same time their defence is not at the same level with 6 conceded in last 5 games, where they received 3 against the host of the World Cup Russia who has not been known with very good and offensive football. Spain scored at least 1 goal till the Halftime in 4 of last 5 and had an advantage in the result when this happens.
Tunisia managed to score at least 1 goal in most of their matches, against other attacking teams, like against Portugal they managed to score even 2 goals but did not resist the attacking power of Ronaldo and company and allowed another 2 goals at their net (2: 2) was the end result.
Our expectation is that the match will be quite effective as the favourite team (Spain) will take advantage at halftime.
