Friendly International: Spain vs England

Spain vs England Betting Tip and Predictions. In the one of the most interesting friendly matches on Friday evening Spain host England in Alicante.

Both teams have qualified directly on EURO 2016, so from this match they are both starting preparations for the European championship next summer in France.

Spain finished qualifications for EURO 2016 at the top of the table with only one defeat (9-0-1) and they will be one of the main candidates to win this competition next year. They recent form and performance is amazing. In the last 5 matches they didn’t concede a single goals and won it all. Spain won the previous two European championships, in 2008 and 2012, so they want to do it 3rd time in a row.

England finished the qualifications for EURO 2016 at the top of the table with all 10 wins. Their group wasn’t too hard, so the match against Spain will be the real test for Roy Hodgson’s side. After very disappointed performance on World Cup in 2014, England want to prepare for France and make good result. Victory for England will be a tough task, if we take a look in history of matches between these two national teams, which played in Spain. England failed to score in the last three away matches against Spain.

Spain vs England injuries and suspensions

In home side, David Silva, Isco, Sergio Ramos and Juanfran are all injured. On the other side, England miss Daniel Sturridge, James Milner, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but the good news are that John Stones and Fabian Delph have returned from injuries, while Tottenham Hotspur’s Eric Dier hope of making his debut.

Spain vs England possible lineups

Spain: De Gea; Mario, Piqué, Nacho, Alba; Thiago, Cazorla, Koke; Isco, Morata, Nolito.
England: Hart; Clyne, Cahill, Smalling, Bertrand; Carrick, Shelvey; Lallana, Barkley, Sterling; Kane.

Spain vs England Prediction

Friendly matches are good for both coaches to make some changes in team and test some new players, but without any doubt this is a big derby match and both sides want to win in it. Spain have better squad, they are playing upfront their supporters and I believe that they can win this game.
