Spain vs. Bosnia Predictions and Preview
Bizarrely, this is not the most important match for Spain on Sunday with all eyes on Wembley earlier in the day for the final Nations League group game between England and Croatia.
La Roja have lost in each of their last two games against those nations and only a draw between the two will guarantee Luis Enrique’s side advance to the semi-final stage.
Bosnia have already topped their Nations League group with two wins over Northern Ireland and four points from their two matches against Austria.
It is perhaps unsurprising that it is the home side who are favourites to win this encounter at odds of 1/6, with the visitors priced at 14/1 and the draw available at 6/1.
The last two meetings between these sides have produced a whopping total of 11 goals, so odds of over 4.5 goals at 16/5 (betfair) while over 5.5 is priced at 7/1.
A ‘double chance’ on Bosnia to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 18/5 (William Hill) while a Spain win/draw outcome is at 1/66.
If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 7/10.
Spain have fallen behind in three of their last four games – they came from 1-0 down to win in England before falling 3-0 down to the Three Lions and pulling two back and bouncing back twice when falling behind three times at Croatia.
Odds of Spain falling behind here to win are available at 17/2. (888 Sport)
One to watch for Spain: Iago Aspas has netted six goals in 17 caps for Spain. The former Liverpool forward has nine goals in 13 games for Celta Vigo this season.
One to watch for Bosnia: Edin Dzeko is his nation’s all time leading goalscorer with 55 strikes in 98 caps and the Roma forward will be hoping to adding to his tally in this fixture.
Long shot: Four of Bosnia’s last eight games have finished 0-0 while they have six clean sheets in that run. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are available at 20/1.
