The second day of the tournament has thrown up a derby match between two football heavyweights and dabblebet have a 25/1 shot combining three markets

Portugal and Spain headline an action-packed second day of the World Cup and there's Dabble of the Day selection which combines multiple markets into one price.

Ordinarily, most markets from the same match cannot be combined into the same bet, but the online bookmaker is offering 25/1 (26.0) on a Spain win accompanied in which Diego Costa is shown a card and Cristiano Ronaldo scores.

The bet will land if all three events happen and has a £20 max stake. T&Cs apply.

Spain are clear favourites to win the match at 11/10 (2.10), despite the fact Julen Lopetegui was fired on Wednesday night for taking the managerial position at Real Madrid.

Fernando Hierro will take charge of La Roja for the tournament but their balanced talent all across the field means they are still one of the frontrunners and will be hoping to get their World Cup off to a winning start against their Iberian neighbours.

Diego Costa is likely to start up front for Spain ahead of Iago Aspas and has already picked up four yellow cards in his 20 appearances for his country.

His club form when it comes to bookings makes for similar reading too, with the former Chelsea man picking up a whopping 121 yellow cards in just 416 club matches in his career so far.

Backing Cristiano Ronaldo to score needs little justification following his outstanding 2018 which saw him score 28 times in just 22 matches for Real Madrid.

This is likely to be the 33-year-old’s final World Cup and he will be itching to add to his paltry record of just three goals in 13 appearances at the tournament, which he is just 11/8 (2.38) to do outside of this bet.

Spain to win, Diego Costa to be carded and Cristiano Ronaldo to score at 25/1 (26.0) with dabblebet
