FRANCE, PORTUGAL AND SPAIN ALL TO WIN AT 7/1!
Spain must win here if they’re to finish top after fluffing their lines against Switzerland on Saturday. Sergio Ramos uncharacteristically missed twice from the spot, having converted his previous 25 penalties for club and country, but failure to create from open play is fast becoming a pressing concern.
Indeed, La Roja’s past five outings have now seen a combined total of just six goals, as they only managed to net half of those themselves.
Germany’s 3-1 win hosting the Ukraine sets them up nicely for this encounter, but while they haven’t had too many problems finding the net of late, clean sheets have been harder to come by.
Both teams have scored in seven of their past eight internationals, though it’s noticeable that they register higher tallies when facing teams outside the elite.
Whereas at home they’ve put three past each of Turkey, Switzerland and the Ukraine, as well as six when hosting Northern Ireland at the start of this run, they only managed five goals across the other four matches.
Spain And Germany To Draw 1-1
Given the visitors will be content with a point, while Spain are lacking thrust, the stalemate appears a very healthy option. The last two meetings have produced 1-1 draws, with the most recent tussle in September, which is one of four stalemates from Die Mannschaft’s past seven matches.
In fact, up against the top teams Joachim Low’s outfit have faced over the past few years – Argentina, Brazil, England, France, the Netherlands and Spain – as well as recent encounters with Switzerland, they’ve drawn nine of 14 matches.
Excluding the weakest opponents Spain have had going back to October last year – Malta and Romania – they’ve now draw six of nine games as the only sides they beat were Switzerland and the Ukraine on home turf.
Although each stalemate came on their travels, they haven’t been tested in their own backyard by an elite team since England won in Sevilla over two years ago now.
Both teams have scored in each of Germany’s past seven draws, while that’s also been the case in 14 of Spain’s last 15 stalemates.
Five of those most recent six aforementioned draws for Spain ended 1-1, and given Germany will want to take some sting out of the contest, the correct score is certainly worth paying attention to.
Timo Werner To Score Anytime
Luis Enrique may alter his starting line-up a little, with Alvaro Morata wating in the wings and Gerard Moreno hoping for an opportunity after rescuing a point late on against Switzerland.
However, the visitors are unlikely to make too many changes and we like the look of Timo Werner to continue his current streak.
The Chelsea forward has scored in five consecutive appearances for club and country, netting seven times in total, while his pace should cause problems in behind given Spain have looked susceptible to quick counter attacks in recent outings.
