Having been thrashed 5-1 in their opening game vs Netherlands, defending champions Spain will look to bounce back and get their act together when they face Chile in another high profile Group B encounter that takes place on June 18.

It will be a do-or-die situation for Spain and they must bounce back in this game to keep their chances of qualifying for the knockouts intact. However, Chile can almost guarantee a place in the knockouts if they can manage to shock Spain for the second time.

Spain’s defense was all over the place in their clash vs Netherlands and Vicente Del Bosque will surely have to figure out what went wrong for them in their previous match. It was a day to forget for Iker Casillas as he himself made a number of mistakes on the night and can be blamed for 3 of Netherlands’ 5 goals.

Due to Spain’s terrific squad and the experience that they carry, it will be wrong to write them off and hence another battle of nerves can be expected at the historic Maracana.
