Spain vs. Russia Top Story Lines
• The attack of Spain is fine, only four teams scored more goals in the group stage than the six in Spain. It is their defense that is the problem since the five goals they have conceded are tied for most of the teams that advanced to the elimination round.

• Spain won Group B with three unstable performances, tying with Portugal and Morocco, and defeating Iran 1-0 in an unconvincing manner.
