England v Spain tips: Nations League clash likely to be tight affair
Gareth Southgate’s England return to action for the first time since their valiant World Cup display in Russia. And it’s their first ever outing in the new UEFA Nations League.
They’re up against a Spain side heading into a new era. It’s the first time former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique takes charge of La Furia Roja.
The last meeting between the pair ended in a thrilling 2-2 draw, and it seems likely we’ll get another close game at Wembley tonight.
There’s little between the sides in the Match Betting. England are 9/5 for victory, with Spain 33/20 to collect the points. Meanwhile, the draw is 2/1.
Both sides possess plenty of attacking talent – with the likes of Harry Kane and Alvaro Morata likely to start at Wembley.
We make it 10/11 for Both Teams to Score, while another 2-2 draw between the pair is priced up at 14/1.
Spain tended towards a 4-3-3 under former boss Julen Lopetegui. And more of the same is likely under Enrique – who consistently used that system at Barca.
Morata has been recalled to the squad for the first time since November 2017. He’s could lead the line, with Isco and Suso supplying him from the wings.
England earned success with three at the back in the World Cup. It’s hard to see past the trio of John Stones, Harry Maguire and Kyle Walker getting the starting spots once again.
Following Jamie Vardy’s virtual-retirement from the national side, Marcus Rashford is likely to partner the prolific Harry Kane in a front two.
It’s no surprise to see Kane heading the Anytime Goalscorer betting at 7/5. The Tottenham Hotspur ace bagged the Golden Boot in Russia, with six goals. And he’s 11/2 to Score Two Goals in this clash.
Meanwhile, it’s 16/5 for Rashford to find the net.
Morata is 2/1 to register for the visitors, while Isco – who netted in 2016’s 2-2 draw – is 3/1 to get his name on the scoresheet.
