Spain vs England: Go for goals in Seville showdown

Spain vs England: Go for goals in Seville showdown

Kick-off: 1945, 15/10/2018

Stadium: Benito Villamarin

TV: Sky Sports

England face a daunting task when taking on Spain in the Nations League but we’re backing Gareth Southgate’s men to make a game of it in Seville on Monday.

La Roja were worthy 2-1 winners when these teams met at Wembley last month but the Three Lions did look dangerous whenever getting forward.

Punters can get Evens for both teams to score again in the reverse fixture and that is our opening Spain vs England prediction.

A Look At Spain’s Betting Odds

Spain recovered from going behind to a Marcus Rashford strike in London thanks to close-range efforts from Saul Niguez and Rodrigo.

However, they were fortunate to have a late Danny Welbeck leveller ruled out after the Arsenal forward was adjudged to have fouled David de Gea.

La Roja have since crushed World Cup runners-up Croatia 6-0 in this competition and cruised to a 4-1 friendly win in Wales on Thursday.

Luis Enrique has clearly got Spain back on track following a troubled campaign at Russia 2018 and they will be hard to keep at bay in this mood.

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta said: “We are lucky in Spain to have so many players that will fight for their place in the squad.

“We are pleased because we are coming from a disappointment in the World Cup and we know we have to recover our place.

“We know what to expect and England have to win if they want to qualify for the final four (of the Nations League) in June.

“It’s in our hands to close that group and by winning the three points it will be ours.”

We’re expecting another entertaining encounter between these teams and 21/20 for over 2.5 goals stands out from the Spain vs England odds.

A Look At England’s Betting Odds

England had to settle for a goalless draw against Croatia on Friday night but again created chances in an eerie atmosphere at the virtually-empty Stadion HNK Rijeka.

Eric Dier and Harry Kane hit the woodwork either side of half-time, Ross Barkley saw a penalty appeal rejected and Rashford wasted two great chances.

“It feels like a game we should have won,” Three Lions manager Southgate said. “I think the performance deserved that.

“They had one reasonable chance in the second half, but I thought we dictated the flow of the game for a long period and the second-half performance was excellent.

“We were pushing and pushing right to the end, so I couldn’t ask more of the players.

“I am pleased with the chances we created and we just have to make sure we finish them, which on another day we will.”

Rashford also should have done better with two chances saved by Manchester United team-mate De Gea in the game against Spain, so England are creating opportunities to score.

It was 2-2 when these sides met a couple of years ago and 17/1 for a repeat of that scoreline is worth a speculative punt in our Spain vs England betting tips.
