In anticipation of tonight’s FIFA Confederations Cup Group B fixture between Spain and Tahiti, we preview the international action.
On Thursday night, the Maracana Stadium will see defending FIFA World Cup champions, Spain, take on the tiny French Polynesian island of Tahiti.
In what is seen as a David versus Goliath battle, who is your money on?
If you are a betting person, here are tips brought to you by Soccer 6 and guest predictor, former Bafana Bafana defender, Bradley Carnell.
SPAIN V TAHITI
Fifa ranking: Spain 1st and Tahiti 138th
Useful facts: In a game which appears to be a massive mismatch, football powerhouse Spain take on minnows Tahiti in Rio de Janeiro. La Furia Roja will look to batter the tiny French Polynesian island nation with their slick passing. Tahiti can only really hope to keep the scoreline respectable by defending as if their lives depend on it. This Confederations Cup Group B game could be entertaining!
Bradley Carnell: This is like David versus Goliath! I think Spain will be outright winners and will score plenty of goals. It might be a chance for some of the younger Spanish stars to shine. Win for Spain.
