Today's match between the championship defender Spain and Portugal in Donetsk inaugurates Euro 2012 Semi-final stage.
Both teams from Iberian Peninsula play beautiful football. Spanish thousand of quick passes style of play versus Portuguese Brazilian style.
The Spanish collective genius of an entire squad against individual brilliance of one man of the Portuguese.
Players know each other very well. Almost half of Portuguese team play in Spanish La Liga. Pepe and Ronaldo play for Real Madrid.
Spanish are favourites. Even if Ronaldo will be in excellent form I don't think Portugal could upset Spanish plans.
Spain's coach Del Bosque promises Spanish fans that they will be taking special care of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Spanish key for success is midfield. Players like Iniesta, Alonso, Busquets, Silva and Fabregas can construct attack on every side.
