Key Stat: Spain scored nine goals in the group stage - two more than anyone else

Expert Verdict: Italy showed great fighting qualities to reach the semi-finals but their win over Germany came at a cost with star men Domenico Berardi and Andrea Conti ruled out of this contest with Spain because of suspension. That could be too much of a handicap against a Spanish side that is full of quality and were the only side to qualify for the semi-finals with a perfect record.

Recommendation: Spain

Key Stat: Chile have lost one of their last eight competitive fixtures

Expert Verdict: Chile produced their poorest performances of the tournament when drawing 1-1 with Australia but should not be written off when facing Portugal in Kazan. The Chileans looked a good side when drawing 1-1 with tournament favourites Germany and can compete on even terms with the Portuguese, who have not been seriously tested since the 2-2 draw with Mexico.

Recommendation: Chile draw no bet

Key Stat: Mexico are unbeaten in their last 11 competitive games

Expert Verdict: Mexico narrowly missed out on winning Group A but will be delighted with seven points from three games and have every chance of knocking out Germany in the semi-finals. Germany's victories have come against Cameroon and Australia but Mexico are likely offer a sterner test than either of those two.

Recommendation: Mexico to qualify

Key Stat: Progres have drawn one and lost 11 of their 12 European matches

Expert Verdict: Rangers have not played in Europe for almost six years and couldn't have asked for a more gentle re-introduction than a Europa League first qualifying round tie with Progres Niedercorn, who finished fourth in the Luxembourg top flight last season. Progres lost 3-0 on aggregate to Shamrock Rovers at the same stage two seasons ago and face a tougher challenge against the Gers.

Recommendation: Rangers to win 4-0
