La Roja 6-5 for a clean sheet against Portugal
SPAIN have not conceded a goal in their last eight European Championship and World Cup knockout matches and La Roja are 6-5 with Ladbrokes to shut out Portugal in Donetsk.
Wednesday night's Euro 2012 semi-final sees Cristiano Ronaldo attempting to find a way past almost invincible goalie Iker Casillas and Spanish substitute Alvaro Negredo is backing his man to come out on top when the two Real Madrid pals go head-to-head.
Negredo said: "We have the best goalkeeper in the world and he knows Ronaldo, so that must be a good thing."
Casillas has not conceded in 299 minutes since Italy scored past him in the opening Group C contest and the stopper has a quite remarkable record at international level, claiming 77 clean sheets in 135 caps.
