Spain vs. Sweden Predictions and Preview

Spain are hoping to make it four wins from four in their qualification campaign for the European Championships but face a tricky test at home to Spain.

Luis Enrique’s side have already recorded victories at Malta and the Faroe Islands, but a narrow 2-1 home win over Norway is a warning sign ahead of this clash.

The Swedes have made a solid start too – home wins over Romania and Malta alongside a pulsating 3-3 draw at Scandinavian rivals Norway has Janne Andersson’s side on course for qualification.

It is not surprising that it is Spain who are favourites to win this encounter at odds of 2/9 to win in 90 minutes, with Sweden priced at 12/1 and the draw available at 5/1.

Ten goals have flown in across Spain’s three qualification games to date while for Sweden that figure is 12, so over 3.5 goals at 2/1 appears to be a solid bet with over 4.5 at 23/5.

A ‘double chance’ on Sweden to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 3/1 while a Spain win/draw outcome is at 1/50.

If you fancy Spain to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 5/7.

One to watch for Spain: Iago Aspas is the dangerman for Spain – he has netted 42 goals in La Liga across the past two seasons despite being beset by injuries and playing for a Celta Vigo side battling relegation. Aspas has six goals in 17 caps for Spain and is at 19/20 to score here.

One to watch for Sweden: Robin Quaison has scored in each of Sweden’s three qualification matches to date – the Mainz forward has scored five goals in nine caps and is priced attractively at 11/2 to continue his great form here.

Long shot: Sweden have failed to score in four of their last 12 matches while Spain have two clean sheets in their last four outings. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 12/1.
