Spain v England Preview, UEFA Nations League, Monday 15th October 2018, Estadio Benito Villamarín, Kick off: 7:45pm
Spain are out to continue their 100% record in the UEFA Nations League as they host England in Seville on Monday night. Luis Enrique has won every game since taking charge of the side, and their swagger is well and truly back. Can Gareth Southgate’s England side match that, or are they going to be the latest side to lose out to the Spanish?
Top Betting Tip
- Spain to win – at 4/5 with Betfair
Relevant Stats, Injuries and Suspensions
England have carried some injuries through the international break, with full-back Danny Rose and goalkeeper Alex McCarthy withdrawing before the meeting with Croatia. Danny Welbeck has carried an injury through the week, but he’s in contention to feature here. The Three Lions are set to stick with their 3-5-2 system, despite their defeat to the Spanish at Wembley last month.
The hosts have six Premier League based players to call upon, with four Chelsea stars featuring. That’s the highest number any club has in this squad, level with Real Madrid. Meanwhile, Luis Enrique has called up just one player from his former club, Sergio Busquets. Despite their huge impact on the national side 10 years ago, Barca have little presence in the current set-up. However, one of their on-loan stars features, and he’s the team’s form man. Paco Alcacer has nine goals in six games after two strikes against Wales in midweek, making him one to fear.
Spain v England Tips
Spain are 4/5 favourites with Betfair here, while England are out at 17/5 with BetVictor. The Three Lions are clearly unfancied against the form of Enrique’s men, especially after a crushing 6-0 win over Croatia here last month. While this encounter is likely to be closer, we don’t see how the young side Southgate has selected can manage to bridge the gap.
The visitors come here with some rocky post-World Cup displays, while Spain have been reinvented in the blink of an eye. Packed with attacking talent and midfield superiority, the Spanish are deserved favourites. We’re backing them to take the points at 4/5 with Betfair, making it four wins from four for Enrique. We also like the look of Alcacer to score the opening goal, given his red hot form. He’s 9/2 with Coral to open the scoring in this one.
