Teams have not met since the summer of 2018. Then these teams got into one subgroup at the World Cup and the face-to-face match ended in the world 3:3. If we count the teams' matches only in regular time, in the previous 7 out of 11 games of these national teams, the referee fixed a draw. Two more matches were won by one of the teams.
Upon completion of the selection, Fernando Santos' wards played a number of friendly matches, in which only Saudi Arabia (3:0) and Algeria (3:0) were able to defeat. With the USA (1:1), Tunisia (2:2) and Belgium (0:0) the Portuguese dispersed peacefully, while the Netherlands (0:3) lost massively on the neutral field.
Almost all the strongest players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, entered the final application of the Portuguese national team. The most significant loss, perhaps, was Fabiu Coentrau, who was injured last spring.
The Spanish national team has not lost in the last test games, although some results still caused alarm, for example, a draw with Russia (3:3) and Switzerland (1:1), as well as an unconvincing victory over Tunisia (1:0) in Krasnodar.
From the positive, we immediately recall the meeting with Argentina (6:1), which the Spaniards did not leave a single chance. You can also add an away game against Germany (1:1).
Spain has no particular staffing problems. Questions remain only in the line of attack, which can be formed by Rodrigo, Iago Aspas and Diego Costa.
And let's assume for now that the sensational change of the head coach will not seriously affect the team.
