If England can’t get a win out of this match out in Spain then their slim hopes of winning their Nations League Group will fade away. They played out a 0-0 draw in Croatia in midweek leaving them on one point from two games. There’s also the concern about relegation too from the group. Spain need a point to seal the group win.

Spain News and Form

Spain romped to a 4-1 friendly victory down in Wales in midweek to warm up for the visit of England. The Spaniards beat England in their opening Nations League game 2-1 at Wembley. They then produced a masterclass in destroying World Cup 2018 runners-up Croatia 6-0.

So they have maximum points in the group and a huge goal difference advantage as well. So a point in this game will give them the group win. Spain to win to nil may appeal at 2/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 12th, 2018 at 9:45 pm).

Spain have won their last three games and have rattled off twelve goals in that run of games. They have looked so impressive since new boss Luis Enrique took over after the World Cup. Spain haven’t lost a game since a defeat to Italy at Euro 2016.

So it has been an epic run of form. Paco Alcacer looks a pretty strong option in the anytime goalscorer market at 8/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 12th, 2018 at 9:45 pm) after getting a brace against Wales in midweek. He has nine goals in five games for club and country this term. At this point, they look a valid option to win the Nations League outright. Spain are undefeated in their last 38 competitions home games, winning all but four of those.

England News and Form

England needed three points out in Croatia on Friday night to really keep their challenge to Spain alive. They didn’t get it, they only managed a 0-0 draw in a game played behind closed doors. The first half was shockingly poor and then England wasted great plenty of chances in the second half to get the points.

Marcus Rashford missed two glorious chances and Harry Kane had a goal ruled out for offside. The Three Lions also hit the post and the bar in the game. Goals aren’t flowing for them and an efficient Spain 1-0 correct score option is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 12th, 2018 at 9:45 pm).

So England have come up with only the two goals in their last four games played now so it’s not quite happening for them. England have just two wins (90 minutes) in their last eight games now (D3 L3). This is such a difficult away game as well and England are still not getting the results against quality teams.

England are now W2 D2 L2 in their last six games so not exactly in red-hot form by any stretch of the imagination. England have failed to score in their last four trips to Spain, both teams NOT to score massively appeals at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 12th, 2018 at 9:45 pm). They may well come up short again as they won’t see much of the ball.

Spain v England Head to Head

Spain took a good 2-1 win in their first nations League meeting with England. So that leaves them undefeated in three against the Three Lions. Spain have a fantastic W5 D1 L1 head to head record against England in their last seven meetings. Both teams have scored in just two of the last ten meetings between the two nations.

Spain v England Predictions

Spain to win: England are not at the quality level that the Spaniards are at, not by some distance. The Three Lions couldn’t deliver on home against them and aren’t likely to do so away. Have a look at Spain to win to nil.
