First of big derbies in World Cup

This will be first of big derbies on this year World Cup in Russia and it will be interesting to see what can happen in derby between old rivals.

There is no doubt who is best player in Portugal team. Ronaldo will be once more player from which everyone in Portugal will expect goals. Team is lead by coach Fernando Santos since 2014.

Portugal has two really good goalkeepers. First is Anthony Lopes that play for Lyon and second is experienced Rui Patri­cio that play for Sporting. Central back position is little bit weak as best players are Jose Fonte that play in China and Lui­s Neto from Fenerbahce. They have better options on left back with Guerreiro from Dortmund and on righ back with great Nelson Semedo from Barca and Joao Cancelo from Inter.

Their midfield is really strong with Joao Mario from West Ham, William Carvalho from Sporting, Adrien Silva from Leiceser and Danilo Pereira from Porto.

We know that atack is strongest part or Portugal team with Ronaldo and suport of great wingers Goncalo Guedes from Valencia, Bernardo Silva from Man City and talanted Gelson Martins from Sporting. They have little problem with central forward players as Andre Silva from AC Milan is only top class player they have on this position.

Portugal play will depend of good defence and even they do not have top class players in defence they have coach Santos that like to play more defensive oriented football and this can help Portugal team a lot. I think they are at the moment one of best teams in World.

One of biggest football nations of recent big competitions will be lead by Julen Lopetegui and his goal will be to form a team out of many star players.

On goal they have one of best keepers of the world no doubt with David de Gea.

In defence they also have great players Gerard Pique, Ramos, Azpilicueta from Chelsea, Alba, Carvajal. This are all top class players but where it could be some problem is that half are from Real and other half from Barcelona and we know specially Pique is proud Catalonian and I think harmony in team will not be at top level.

Their midfield is even stronger then defence. Atletico duo Saul Niguez and Koke with Sergio Busquets are all great in defence and any midfiled will have problem playing with them. Beside this trio there are also Thiago from Bayern, Isco from Real and experienced Iniesta.

Attack is maybe most problematic again for Spanish team. But  Asensio show some good form in Real, Diego Costa has lot of experience and Rodrigo from Valencia also show some good form.

Still while all other parts of Spanish team are full of stars in attach they could have problems.

This is derby, yes SPain is favourite but I would not underestimat Portugal neither. This is maybe last WC for Ronaldo so he will be extra motivated. I think this match has solid chance to end with draw as this is result that would be ok for both teams. Of course win is better but noone wants to open World Cup with lose. TIP X
