Wednesday at the World Cup: Spain go in search of first win

| 19.06.2018

There are another trio of World Cup games to enjoy today with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and David Silva all on show.

It’s the second round of games for Group A and B. Portugal get the action underway against Morocco.

But we’re focusing on the day’s later fixtures.

URUGUAY V SAUDI ARABIA (4pm, BBC)

After Russia saw off Egypt 3-1 last night, Uruguay can join the hosts on six points and finish off the group with a game to spare.

They should have little problem against a Saudi Arabia side who were little short of hopeless in a 5-0 thrashing by the Russians last Thursday.

No wonder then, that Uruguay are 1/5 to win this one. The Saudis are a lengthy 14/1, with the draw 11/2.

They looked sluggish in their 1-0 win over Egypt, but Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani could be in for a profitable afternoon.

The pair are joint-favourites to score anytime at 2/1, while it’s 19/10 apiece they bag two goals or more.

IRAN V SPAIN (7pm, ITV)  

After that thrilling 3-3 draw with Portugal, Spain will look to get their first win of the campaign when they meet Iran in Kazan.

The Spaniards’ slick intricate movement left Portugal all-tied up at times on Friday evening, so it could be a long night for Iran.

It’s 1/4 about that 2010 champions winning tonight, with the Middle Eastern side 14/1 to bag another win after defeating Morocco 1-0. A draw is 17/4.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick on Friday meant many overlooked a typically bullish and clinical performance from Diego Costa.

The Atletico Madrid ace bagged a brace in that six-goal thriller. He’s 5/2 favourite to score first tonight and 3/1 to grab another two-goal haul or better.
