Russia v Spain Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th November 2017

Football Betting
Russia v Spain Betting Preview - International Friendly 14th November The only way that Russia, the hosts of the 2018 World Cup are going to really get themselves close to getting up to speed is by testing themselves in friendlies against the top sides in the world. They go into this game on the back of a home defeat against Argentina and their chances of beating Spain don't look great. The Spaniards romped to a 5-0 win over Costa Rica on Saturday and will look to extend their current streak of winning form.

Russia v Spain Betting Tips

There haven’t been many signs of Russia being to able impress as the host nations at the World Cup next summer. They landed a 1-0 defeat for themselves on home soil against Argentina on the weekend, with Man City’s Sergio Aguero getting the winning goal. The Russians have won just one of their last five games now and in that sequence, there has been a draw with Iran and defeats against Mexico and Portugal as well Argentina. They did participate in the Confederations Cup in the summer on home soil, and after huffing and puffing to beat New Zealand, they lost their other two group stage matches. There’s not much attacking quality there, but they can keep the score down in this one and under 2.5 goals at bet365 returns a price of 4/5. The last time that Spain and Russia met was during the 2008 European Champions qualifiers and not too surprisingly, the Spaniards were dominant in both games there, winning 7-1 on aggregate. That extended their form to W4 D1 L0 from their five previous games against the Russians. Spain have kept a clean sheet in four of their last five fixtures against Russia and therefore Spain to win to nil at bet365 returns a price of 11/8 which looks good value. You can always go and look at both teams not to score at a price of 8/11 as well. Russia’s record in their last nine games on home soil reads W2 D3 L4 so that doesn’t suggest that they are going to be good enough to beat Spain, particularly with Spain running on a six match winning streak at the moment as well. Spain last lost a match at the 2016 European Championships against Italy and since then they have gone and produced a brilliant W12 D3 record in all matches, both friendly and competitive. They smashed five goals past Costa Rica on the weekend with Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata on the scoreboard and he the 7/2 bet365 first goalscorer favourite for this friendly. A Spain 1-0 correct score in this fixture, considering it is just a friendly just before the return to domestic action, is a 5/1 price in the bet365 correct score market. The Spaniards haven’t conceded in any of their last four games and are likely to keep the Russians at arm’s length. This will be their last action until they face up in an international friendly against Germany in March 2018.

Russia v Spain Betting Odds

Spain 8/15, Draw 3/1, Russia 5/1

Russia v Spain Predictions

Spain to win: The Spaniards are value to win this one to nil, just because the Russians haven’t looked up to all that much really. Spain have looked in really good form this year and can extend their winning streak with a comfortable victory against next year’s World Cup hosts.

Spain v Italy Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd September 2017

World Cup Betting
Spain v Italy Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 2nd September As expected you have a straight toss up between Spain and Italy at the top of Group G. They are level on points with four games to play and it is Spain who just edge things on goal difference. The two of them played out a draw in their first meeting in Italy, but maybe the Italians would see this as a huge chance to strike out for an advantage as they are well behind the Spaniards in that goal difference. A win for Italy is the only way that they get in the driving seat. Each week from Monday through Thursday, if you make the qualifying stake amount of ÂŁ25 across any sport in the Coral sportsbook, then on Friday you will claim a free ÂŁ5 bet back to use that weekend!

Spain v Italy Betting Tips

What a game this should be with so much riding on it. The winner of this will probably win Group G. That is because Spain and Italy have equal W5 D1 records on the board in the group so far, with them having played out a 1-1 draw in Italy. So while they have been evenly matched, it is Spain who have a great chance because of home advantage in this second meeting, to take full control of the group. Spain have had a really easy time of home games in the group with them having taken wins over Israel 4-1, Macedonia 4-0 and Liechtenstein 8-0. Diego Costa is actually their top scorer in the group with five goals, but he’s out of the picture, so Alvaro Morata is a 5/4 Coral anytime goalscorer option with Iago Aspas at 7/4. Spain have failed to take a win over Italy in any of their last three meetings now (D2 L1) but they have won their last two on home soil against them with a 1-0 scoreline. A Spain 1-0 correct score option at bet365 is trading at 9/2, the shortest priced option in the market. A repeat 1-1 draw is a 5/1 shot. Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings between the two of them and a flutter on both teams not to score for a price of 4/6 is probably a good option for this one. You have to take into consideration the high stakes in this one, whoever wins this will probably be booking the automatic qualification spot. So this is likely going to be tight and under 2.5 goals is a price of 8/15 and six of the last seven meetings between Spain and Italy have gone under the goal line. So can the Italians produce a great performance out on the road and put some pressure on the Spaniards? They have pretty much matched Spain all the way and have only scored three goals fewer than Spain have in the group, so they have been doing just as well going forward. But they are four goals down on the goal difference to Spain so a draw here isn’t likely going to be enough for them because they would have to make that up somehow in their final three games of the campaign. Italy have taken a 3-1 win in Israel, a 3-2 win in Macedonia and a 4-0 win in Liechtenstein on their travels, so plenty of goals have been scored, but there will be some concern about those away goals which they have given up. Ciro Immobile is the top scorer for the Italians in the qualification campaign so far and he is a price of 10/3 in the anytime goalscorer market for this one with Andrea Belotti at 11/4. Can they produce a win to heap some pressure on Spain?

Spain v Italy Betting Odds

Spain 17/20, Draw 12/5, Italy 10/3

Spain v Italy Predictions

Draw: While a win for Italy would be tremendous for them, this is most likely going to end up being a draw. Italy will recognise the importance of not losing because that at least keeps their hopes alive of winning the group. So they will be their usual stubborn selves and can dig out a draw.

Austria v Spain Predictions & Betting Odds – Women’s Euro 2017 30th July 2017

Austria Women
Austria v Spain Betting Preview - Women's Euro 2017 30th July Spain were rocked a little in their defeat against Scotland in their final group stage match. Once again they played nice football but they couldn’t find the end product. So that result will have given Austria some belief for this quarter final showdown. The Austrians, on their debut Finals campaign, came through their group undefeated and after seeing Spain lose in the group against both England and Scotland, they may well have their tails up in this one. There's nothing to lose for them as they go as heavy underdogs. One of the top football betting products around is Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance which they offer on all matches listed in their sportsbook.

Austria v Spain Betting Tips

What a fantastic campaign it has been from Austria on their debut at the Women’s European Championships. They went out and won Group C at the expense of France, albeit down to the French not playing at their best. But credit to Austria, they held out for a 1-1 draw with the French along the way for a precious point. So the Austrians are unbeaten with a W2 D1 record in the group stage of this summer's Euros and break further new ground in the quarter finals. Even though they are underdogs, they will have nothing to fear and nothing to lose in this one because of that status. Both teams to score at bet365 is a price of 11/10 and that’s not a bad punt considering that they scored in each of their three group stage wins. This will be the first meeting between the two nations ever in the Women’s Euros. Spain and Austria did meet in the 2011 World Cup qualifying and Spain took back to back wins over Austria in the space of six days, back in 2009 for those games. The Spaniards won 2-0 at home and 1-0 away. In the bet365 correct score market, there is a price of 5/1 on a Spain 1-0 win and that will have a lot of appeal for punters. Spain to win to nil at bet365 is a 9/5 punt. The two most recent games between the two nations have both been friendly matches, with Spain winning 4-1 in 2012 and then playing out a 2-2 with the Austrians in 2015. With two of Austria’s three games in the group stage going under 2.5 goals, this one going the same way at bet365 is a price of 4/7. Spain have struggled going forward as a whole in the group. Well, not going forward, just when they have been in and around the box. Jennifer Hermoso and Mari Paz Vilas are quality players, but neither have scored yet in the tournament. After opening with a 2-0 win over Portugal, Spain suffered a 2-0 defeat against England, despite controlling possession for most of the match and then they lost 1-0 against Scotland which not many people would have seen coming. So they have lost their last two games without scoring and that’s not great form to carry forward. They only got through in second place ahead of Scotland and Portugal on three-way head-to-head goal difference. The Spaniards will get plenty of the ball, but the big question is, will they do anything with it?

Austria v Spain Betting Odds

Spain 5/6, Draw 11/5, Austria 10/3

Austria v Spain Predictions

Austria to win: The Spaniards have to dig deeper after that loss against the Scots and their heads dropped a little. They do play well, but there’s no reason not to throw something at the Austrians in this one who will be full of confidence and they may be able to hold their own against a misfiring Spanish front line. Worth a flutter on the underdogs.

Scotland v Spain Predictions & Betting Odds – Women’s Euro 2017 July 27th 2017

Football Betting
Scotland v Spain Betting Preview - Women's Euro 2017 July 27th The Scots actually have a chance in this one to qualify, but they would need the performance of their lives. The only way Scotland get out of the group is by winning this game by a two goal margin and hoping that Portugal lose. Spain will actually be through to the next round unless Portugal go out and pull out a win over England by a two goal margin. The Scots have battled bravely, but would they have enough to beat the slick Spaniards? Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Scotland v Spain Betting Tips

Well Scotland, who have lost their opening two games of the Championships, aren’t out of this yet. They would need a miracle and a bit of luck on their side to get through this though. The only way that they get out of this group now is by beating Spain by at least a two goal margin and then hoping that England beat Portugal. This is going to be a tall order for Scotland without their injured top scorer Jane Ross. After losing heavily to England 6-0 in their opener, they were edged out in a 2-1 defeat against Portugal in their second game, with Erin Cuthbert getting a goal for the home nation, who is 9/1 at bet365 to strike again in this one. This is a tough, tough game for Scotland who may not see too much of the ball. Spain opened with a win over Portugal and then were taken down 2-0 by England. Spain will get through to the next round if they win this (unless Portugal beat England by at least two goals). They are really on the up and their ranking can be thrown out of the window, because they are a great dark horse in this tournament. They like to get the ball down and control possession. They have scoring power up top through Jennifer Hermoso and Mari Paz Vilas notably, and they are 8/13 and 4/6 respectively in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market. Spain and Scotland have played five times before and the Spaniards are unbeaten against them. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price 19/40. Back in qualifying for the 2013 edition of the tournament, these two were together in a dramatic play off battle. After a 1-1 draw between them at Hampden Park in the first leg, the same scoreline was produced back in Madrid and then Scotland took the lead in extra time. But Spain equalized seven minutes from time, had a penalty kick saved and then scored with the very last kick of the match to get through to the finals. That was some epic drama, but will this one be as exciting. Just last year these two met in a friendly in Falkirk and Spain earned a draw thanks to a last minute equaliser, so over 90 minutes Spain are W2 D3 against Scotland. Backing Scotland to at least make this interesting with a both teams to score bet at 13/8 with bet365 may offer a little outside appeal.

Scotland v Spain Betting Odds

Spain 1/8, Draw 8/1, Scotland 16/1

Scotland v Spain Predictions

Spain to win: The Spaniards have looked very good in the tournament so far and they are a growing force in the game. They should be able to put the win on the board against Scotland who may not see much of the ball in this one. Spain to win 2-0 looks a nice bet.

England v Spain Prediction & Betting Tips – Women’s Euro 2017 23rd July 2017

Football Betting
  England v Spain Women's Euro 2017, 23rd July England can push on towards the knockout stages of the tournament if they can follow up on their big opening win over Scotland with a victory over Spain. England put on a great show in that opener, but the Lionesses will have a much tougher time of things against the technically sound Spaniards. Spain opened with a win over Iberian rivals Portugal in their opener. England are 13/10 to win this one with the draw at 3/1 and Spain at 21/10. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

England v Spain Betting Tips

The Lionesses were supremely dominant over rivals Scotland in their group opener, putting a 6-0 win on the board. Not all games are going to be a comfortable as that for them though as they work their way through the tournament. But it was a very good start and will have done wonders for their confidence. Now comes their most serious group stage challenge as they take on Spain. This will probably be a much tighter game and there is a temptation to go under 2.5 goals at bet365 for a price of 5/6 as neither will want to come away empty handed from this one. Four years ago England met Spain in the group stage and suffered a traumatic and dramatic 3-2 loss in the game as they went home at the first hurdle. England actually trails the head to head against Spain, as they have gone W4 D2 L5 of their eleven previous encounters with the Spaniards (including friendly matches). Remarkably though in those matches England have outscored the Spaniards 16-13. Just last October these two met and England took a 2-1 win in Guadalajara with captain Steph Houghton among the goals. After her hat trick against Scotland, Jodi Taylor is 13/8 outright favourite in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market with Ellen White at 23/14. England have plenty of scoring power and depth, but Spain are no mugs with the ball at their feet. You are looking at a price of 8/11 on both teams to score in this one. Spain opened with a comfortable win over Portugal, beating their neighbours 2-0. It was about as comfortable as you can get and Spain showed their great technical ability to keep the ball in the game. They have very good scoring threats in Jennifer Hermoso and Mari Paz Vilas who are around the 23/10 quote in the anytime goalscorer market. England’s defence will be tested a lot more than it was against Scotland. In the correct score market a 1-1 draw is the shortest priced option, but an England 1-0 victory at bet365 comes in at an appealing 15/2 price. Given that they finish off against Scotland, the Spaniards, with three points already secured, won’t be unhappy with a point.

Who will win - England v Spain Predictions

England to win: England looked very strong and powerful in their opener and that confidence that is running through them should be able to see them get past Spain. This will be the toughest game for them in the group and can edge this one.

Each of the matches are 20 minutes long and with rolling substitutions in the matches, then the action is going to be quick and fast all the way through. Punters are expecting an average of around 5-6 goals per match. In Masters football, there is an average of around 5 goals per game and this is kind of the same format as that. In the first stage of the Star Sixes 2017 tournament, there are three groups of four nations and the top two from each of those groups will automatically go through to the knockout stages. They will be joined there by the two best third-placed teams. The semi finals, third place play off and the Final itself will all be contested on Monday.

Star Sixes Preview

Group A England (5/4) Spain (6/4) Mexico (6/1) Scotland (13/2) We are rolling back the years when we are looking at Paul Merson and Emile Heskey lining up for England. The English are also carrying Michael Owen whose could goals could be crucial and the drive from midfield of Steven Gerrard of course. Sky Bet announced that they have taken a heavy backing of an England/Michael Owen in the Winner/Top Goalscorer market. The English look a solid enough outfit to make it through to the qualifying stage and will probably be tested the most by Spain. Spain will probably just knock the ball around nicely in their usual tika-taka style and that is perfect for the tournament. England won’t have that kind of composure. As for Mexico, they are running with the oldest squad of all the nations at the tournament and Scotland are the least experienced in terms of international football. Spain to win, England to qualify. Fixtures England v Spain - 1930, July 13 Mexico v Scotland - 2000, July 13 Spain v Mexico - 2145, July 14 England v Scotland - 2215, July 14 Spain v Scotland - 1400, July 15 England v Mexico - 1445, July 15 Group B Brazil (5/4) Italy (11/4) Nigeria (3/1) China (16/1) Brazil are going be heavily backed to win the tournament here. They look made for this, even though they aren’t running with a particularly young side at all. There is Rivaldo, Roberto Carlos and Juninho in there and they should cause some waves in the tournament. They actually look stronger at the back than most of the other nations too and no-one else in their group is likely going to really challenge them. Italy aren't without their threats as they have Alessandro Del Piero, Fabrizio Ravanelli and Paolo Di Canio in their squad. They should be able to follow Brazil out of the group. Nigeria have a lot of familiar names in their group but aren’t expected to really challenge but it is the weakest group and could be a good dark horse to get out of it. China are the rank outsiders for the entire tournament. Brazil to win, Nigeria to qualify. Fixtures Nigeria v China - 2145, July 13 Brazil v Italy - 2215, July 13 china v Brazil - 2030, July 14 Italy v Nigeria - 2115, July 14 Brazil v Nigeria - 1300, July 15 Italy v China - 1330, July 15 Group C Portugal (13/8) France (15/8) Germany (2/1) Denmark (16/1) Portugal have a very good squad for the Star Sixes. They are also carrying a huge advantage of being the youngest squad there and you look at Raul Meireles for example who has only just finished playing and stack that up against the likes of other greats in the tournament then Portugal look as if they could have the physical edge over everyone else in the tournament and that will carry them. They have the class of captain Deco in there and should threaten. France have a great looking squad with the likes of Robert Pires, William Gallas and Youri Djorkaeff and it could come down to a battle between then and Germany. Of the two, the French probably have a little more quality and trickery in their ranks. Portgual to win, France to qualify Fixtures Portugal v Denmark - 2300, July 13 Germany v France - 2145, July 13 France v Portugal - 1930, July 14 Denmark v Germany - 2000, July 14 France v Denmark - 1515, July 15 Germany v Portugal - 1545, July 15

England will be cheered on well by the home crowds, and Brazil will probably be a threat but their main players are no spring chickens. So things look good for a title coming the way of Portugal.

Serbia v Spain U21 Euro 2017 Predictions & Betting Odds – 23rd June 2017

Niguez (Spain)
Serbia v Spain Betting Preview - U21 Euro 2017 23rd June Spain will win Group B at the U21 European Championships even if they lose this one. Having won their opening two games are just are on cruise control here with the goals flying in all over the place. Even if Serbia managed to pull out a victory in this one, then it probably wouldn't help them get through to the next round so this may have the feel of a dead rubber. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Serbia v Spain Betting Tips

There has been no stopping Spain who are really enjoying themselves at this tournament and no-one will want to meet them in the semi finals. They are top of the group after banking back to back wins, opening with a 5-0 win over Macedonia and then they showed their quality again in taking down their strongest group challengers Portugal in a 3-1 win. Saul has netted in both games now for the Spaniards and he is a quote of 11/5 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Sandro Ramirez and Borja Mayoral as joint 5/4 favourites. Spain have plenty of scoring power in their ranks. Spain to win to nil at bet365 is a good price of 7/4 as well and they have been on cruise control. They are currently running on a four match winning streak and they are unbeaten in their last six games. Spain will likely go and really express themselves in this game and run up a few goals. In the bet365 correct score market, the sheets priced option is a Spain 1-0 win but the 3-0 win for them is likely going to have some appeal at a price of 11/1. Regardless of whatever happens in this game, Serbia will be heading home even if they were to pick up a win in this one. Over 2.5 goals in the game at bet365 is a 4/6 quote and Serbia have won just the one of their last six games played in a W1 D2 L3 record. So they aren't particularly strong and they opened with a 2-0 loss against Portugal and then drew 2-2 with Macedonia, the group outsiders. So they are ready to pack their bags and it will probably see them change their starting line up as well and that means that Spain will probably tear them apart. A Spain U21/Spain U21 half time/full time wager is a price of 13/10.

Serbia v Spain Betting Odds

Spain 4/7, Draw 14/5, Serbia 5/1

Serbia v Spain Predictions

Spain to win: The Spaniards are looking pretty strong at the moment and they are just flying along, and even if they don’t go full force at this one, you can go over 2.5 goals and a Spain victory in the game.

Macedonia v Spain Predictions & Betting Odds – 11th June 2017

World Cup Betting
Macedonia v Spain Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 11th June The Spaniards have to keep up their momentum in Group G of World Cup 2018 qualification. They were lucky enough to be drawn in an easy group, however, they haven’t been able to shake off the attentions of Italy who are level on points with them going into this one. Macedonia have managed to pick up just the three points in their campaign so far and have lost their two previous home games against the Spaniards. Online betting site Coral offers a Bet & Get Club for their customers.

Macedonia v Spain Betting Tips

Macedonia really are not in the qualification picture at all and you won’t be seeing them at the World Cup 2018 that’s for sure. They have collected just the three points in their qualification effort so far and that came in an away win over bottom side Liechtenstein. Three of their seven goals entered in qualification were scored in that one match so they aren’t a major threat of course. At home in the qualification campaign, Macedonia have lost against Italy and Israel so far, but both defeats were only by a one goal margin. Spain to win by a one goal margin at Coral is a price of 10/3 and looks decent value. Spain have won their last two visits to Macedonia by that very margin. Macedonia have gone W2 D1 L3 in their last six games played and are unbeaten in their last three. They have taken a clean sheet in each of their three games following their 4-0 away defeat in Spain during qualification. Spain are clear favourites for this one and they are going to take some stopping. They need to keep going at the top of the table to keep Italy off their tails. The Spaniards have gone W4 D2 in their last six games, dropping just the two points in qualification so far in an away draw with Italy. They have been on point aside from that and they have rattled off 19 goals in their five matches so far. That having been said, only three of those have come away from home. Away from home in the group, Spain took a 1-1 draw in Italy and beat Albania 2-0. So you can expect a low scoring game. In the bet365 correct score market a Spain 2-0 option is at 4/1 while the 1-0 win for them, which was the scoreline on their last visit there, is a price of 6/1. Diego Costa and Vitolo are joint top scorers for Spain so far in the group and they are 4/6 and 6/5 in the anytime goalscorer market respectively.

Spain v Colombia Betting Tips

Spain have not been able to shake off the attentions of Italy in their World Cup qualifying group as they sit level on points at the top of the pile with the Azzurri. Spain are top though over the Italians by a vastly superior goal difference. Their next qualification game comes up on the weekend as they take on Macedonia in the qualifiers, so will have a nice warm up in this one for that. Spain have gone W4 D2 in their last six games played and they did win their last friendly match which was away in France. That was a big return to confidence for them and this is a game which they will be expected to win as well. In the correct score market at bet365 the shortest priced option is a Spain 1-0 win for a price of 5/1 and that was the result the last time that these two met, back in a 2011 friendly. There is plenty of goalscoring options around for Spain with Alvaro Morata as 13/10 anytime goalscorer favourite with Iago Aspas at 6/4. Because the Spaniards don't give up a lot of goals, Spain to win to nil at Bet365 is a quote of 11/8. Colombia have not played a game since a friendly against Brazil back in January, so they can be forgiven if they are a bit rusty. They don’t play competitively again until the back end of August when CONMEBOL World Cup 2018 qualification resumes. Colombia have have gone W2 D2 L2 in their last six games so have been a bit hit and miss and both teams have scored in just one of their last six as well. Both teams not to score at bet365 in this friendly with Spain is a solid 8/11 punt. Colombia are currently sat in second place in World Cup qualifying in their group, having been helped out by Uruguay's slump in form there. They haven’t got a lot of firepower to honest and Carlos Bacca is a 3/1 anytime goalscorer option for them in this one. They head off to face Cameroon after this game in a friendly.

Spain v Colombia Betting Odds

Spain 8/15, Draw 3/1, Colombia 5/1

Spain v Colombia Predictions

Spain to win: It’s a lot of travelling for Colombia for this one and they probably aren’t going to be at their strongest. Therefore Spain should be able to get a win on the board in this one as they warm up for the World Cup qualifiers. It’s likely going to be a low scoring affair.

Benzema (France)

This is just a friendly and that’s the reason. France are a powerful side at the moment and they are cruising towards a place at Russia 2018 next summer.

France v Spain Betting Tips

France were professional in their World Cup 2018 qualifying win over Luxembourg on the weekend. That was three points which ensured that they stay top of their group and remain red hot favourites to land the automatic qualification spot there. They continue to look strong and powerful and they can gain a lot of confidence from this high profile international friendly against the Spaniards. France won the last meeting between the two nations, banking a 1-0 home win back in 2014 against them in an international friendly. That is just a W1 D2 L3 record that they have in their last six games against Spain though. A repeat France 1-0 correct score at Bet365 is a quote of 11/2 and it is worth backing a clean sheet in this one. Both teams have scored in just one of the last six games between these, so goals have been at a premium. Les Bleus are unbeaten in seven games since their Euro 2016 Final defeat against Portugal and they are on a sixteen match (W13 D3) unbeaten run of form at home soil. Antoine Griezmann is 13/8 favourite to net for them in the match. Like France, Spain have gone seven match unbeaten since Euro 2016 so they are going along well at the moment. There was an easy 4-1 win over Israel for them in their World Cup qualifier over the weekend and that means that they stay ahead of Italy on goal difference in that group. The Spaniards took a 1-1 draw out in Italy during the qualifying campaign and that shows that they are not a pushover, but they have generally struggled a bit on the road recently. Spain have won just two of their last six away games and just one of their last ten away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals at Bet365 in this game will return you a price of 3/5 and there is a big trend with each of the last six meetings between France and Spain going under the goal line. Spain have won just one of their last eight away games against quality opposition, losing five of those and failing to score in four of those defeats. In the anytime goalscorer market, Alvaro Morata and Diego Costa are 2/1 options for them. There is reason enough to suggest that they may be able to stick in there for a draw on Tuesday night.

France v Spain Betting Odds

France 7/5, Draw 21/10, Spain 2/1

France v Spain Predictions

Draw: It should be a good contest which will fade away because Spain aren’t going to over-exert themselves with their pressing game for 90 minutes. France will see enough of the ball to pose a big threat in the game, but at the end of the day, it is a friendly, so just settle on the draw in the match outright.
