Spain – Can Spain gain a fifth win on the trot?

Spain sit top of Group F with a 2-point lead ahead of rivals Sweden prior to Monday night’s important clash at the top of the six-nation group that also includes Romania, Malta, Norway and the Faroe Islands.

Spain bring a 4-match winning streak in all competitions into this fixture having accounted for the likes of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Norway, Malta and Faroe Islands – the latter three results being in these Euro 2020 qualifiers along with a friendly international win against Bosnia.

The Spanish are clear favourites to win this group and look to be well on their way to progressing through to the finals, but whilst they may also win this encounter against Sweden, the margin of victory is still to be decided.

Prior to last year’s World Cup in Russia, Spain were breezing through the World Cup qualifiers, recording results such as 4-1 v Israel, 3-0 v Italy and Albania respectively along with demolishing Costa Rica and Argentina in friendlies – 5-0 and 6-1 respectively.

However, they may find Sweden to be more stubborn opponents in these Euro 2020 qualifiers, and the hosts could struggle to beat the drastically low-priced asian handicap line here.

Sweden Prediction – Can Sweden stay close to Spain here?

Since the aforementioned World Cup in Russia, Sweden have enjoyed a more stable and successful period of results under manager Janne Andersson as the visitors have suffered just 3 defeats from their subsequent 11 matches played in all competitions which were losses to Austria, Turkey and Finland, but they’ve also collected some solid wins too during this period.

Wins over Turkey, Russia, Romania and Malta – the latter two being in these Euro 2020 qualifiers, along with a point picked up in a 3-3 draw with Norway, have installed renewed confidence and belief into this Swedish outfit who are renowned for their 4-4-2 formation and well organised and hard-working ethic.

The Swedes also bring attacking threats of their own too in the shape of midfielder Claesson and forward Quaison (3 goals apiece) who have helped Sweden into one of the two automatic qualification places for next year’s finals.

The visitors hold a valuable 3-point cushion over 3rd placed Romania and if they can avoid defeat in Madrid on Monday night, this would go a long way towards them nailing down this 2nd place in Group F.

 

Key-Facts – Spain v Sweden

  • Spain have won their last 4 matches on the trot in all competitions
  • Sweden still remain unbeaten in Group F with 2 wins and 1 draw
  • Spain have beaten the -2 asian line in just 2 of their last 8 meetings against Sweden

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Spain are obvious favourites but the price has been hammered in the markets, so backing Sweden with the +2 asian handicap looks the best play here.
