The semi-finals of Euro 2012 get underway tonight and it is a mouthwatering tie to get involved with.
Portugal have done extremely well to reach the semi-finals as not many people had tipped them to progress from such a tough group.
Paulo Bento’s men know it is all to do in this encounter, they must play to their strengths and take full advantage of any chances they do have.
Their strength lies in their captain Cristiano Ronaldo. Portugal have to bring him into the game and hope that the 27-year-old continues his run of form in-front of goal.
Bento seems to have reinstalled some confidence and self belief in the side and they have played some fantastic football in Euro 2012 so far. This time out though, they will have to be more cautious than against Czech Republic as the opposition is of higher quality.
Portugal will have to upset the odds if they are to make the final as they are being offered at 7/2 to win the match inside 90 minutes.
As for Spain, they have yet again made it through to the latter stages of the tournament and look on course to winning their third major trophy in a row.
Vicente Del Bosque’s men have not been at their fluent best during Euro 2012, however that shows just what a world class side they are as it has been fairly straight forward for them so far.
Del Bosque has a squad full of World and European champions at his disposal and he will be hoping that these really raise their games on the biggest stage.
If the Spanish boss chooses to play without a recognised striker again it will be down to the likes of Cesc Fabregas and David Silva to provide the threat in-front of goal.
It is no surprise that Spain are the favourites to win this encounter in normal time. You can back them at evens.
