Julen Lopetegui has yet to taste defeat in 17 matches as Spain boss and the hosts are fancied to edge out Argentina in Tuesday’s international friendly in Madrid.

La Roja were outstanding on home soil in their World Cup qualifying group, scoring 22 goals in five straight wins, including a 3-0 defeat of Italy.

They face stiff opposition on this occasion, but still get the nod at 21/20 in our Spain vs Argentina betting predictions.

A Look At Spain’s Betting Odds

Spain also prevailed 5-0 against Costa Rica in November’s last home friendly and showed their well-being with a fine 1-1 draw in Germany on Friday night.

La Roja took an early lead through Rodrigo in Dusseldorf and went close through Isco, who was denied at point-blank range by Marc-Andre ter Stegen, and Diego Costa.

Thomas Muller levelled for Die Mannschaft and David de Gea had to produce brilliant saves to deny Julian Draxler and Ilkay Gundogan.

However, Lopetegui was pleased with the performance, stating in AS: “The overall feeling is very good.

“We were playing against the best team in the world currently, a team with a lot of motivation and we’ve felt it. But we’ve played a good game, we had chances to win and so did they.”

La Roja started brightly in Dusseldorf and dominated the opening exchanges, so 9/4 they lead at half-time and full-time stands out from the Spain vs Argentina odds.

A Look At Argentina’s Betting Odds

Argentina did us a favour when seeing off Italy 2-0 in Manchester on Friday, with our preview of that match featuring three winning bets, including a 7/1 correct score selection.

However, La Albiceleste were workmanlike rather than impressive, as both Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero sat out that game due to injury concerns.

After a pedestrian first half, late goals from Ever Banega and Manuel Lanzini settled the issue, but Angel di Maria suffered a thigh strain and will miss this trip.

Head coach Jorge Sampaoli said: “The team showed a lot of stability for much of the game and took advantage of the virtues of the players who played.

“We now have to build on the good work we generated. The group is developing.”

We think the timing of this clash favours La Roja, though, and 27/4 for a 1-0 home win completes our Spain vs Argentina betting tips.
