The 0-3 against Uruguay was a damper, no question. However, even before the finals for the first place in Group A was certain that host Russia has made the leap into the 2nd round. And that's what the Russians did 32 years ago. The next hurdle can come.
Where is he going, the Tiki Taka football of the Spaniards? Anyway, at this World Cup, the Furia Roja held back very fast with a quick combination game. Especially against low-lying, defensive teams, the 2010 World Champion has so far struggled to play out clear opportunities. Defence boss Sergio Ramos is also vulnerable to counterattack.
The Russian selection plays a successful tournament and incidentally also represents one of the most dangerous offensive series of this World Cup. Eight goals in three games is a remarkable achievement, even though five of them were scored against outsiders Saudi Arabia. The Sbornaya bravely plays forward but was last slowed down by heavyweight Uruguay. Pessimists are likely to lead the great quality differences in the squad of both counterparts, which are similar in comparison with the Spaniards. The Russians would have to outdo themselves in Moscow - the last thing to do a miracle.
