Spain vs England – UEFA Nations League :It is with a perfect record under the command of Luis Enrique
that Spain comes into this 3rd round of the Nations League
Where they’ve already managed to get two great victories on the first matches, that have allowed them to continue isolated in the lead of the group 4 of the A league with 6 points conquered, against the point that the Englishmen and the Croatians are sharing.
On the debut of the former Barcelona manager, Spain has beaten England in London by 2-1,
on a match where they dominated and were clearly better during the first half, breaking the rhythm on the 2nd half and allowing some reaction from the Brits, although, not allowing them to come back.
On the 2nd round, an expressive rout, by 6-0, against the World vice-champions Croatia, in Elche.
Their most recent match took place past Thursday, on a friendly played in Cardiff, against Wales, where Spain won by 4-1, showing different and more effective football in comparison to what they presented when they were led by Lopetegui.
Luis Enrique took the opportunity to rotate the starting line-up and give some minutes to some units of their 2nd and 3rd lines.
England lost some flare in this period after the 2018 World Cup, where they’ve reached the semi-finals, falling against Croatia and losing the bronze medal to Belgium.
Still, the future under the command of Gareth Southgate it seems like they can bring some joy to the English fans.
On this Nations League, the campaign has been weak. On the debut, they’ve lost by 2-1 on the said match I’ve already mentioned against Spain, at home.
Meanwhile, more recently, on the last Friday, England played for the 2nd round of this group, having gotten a 0-0 draw against Croatia, on a match played behind closed doors, in Rijeka.
It was England creating the best goal scoring chances, however, their performance overall ended up being very poor, similarly to Croatia.
There’s no doubt that the Spanish national team improved a lot after the arrival of Luis Enrique.
Now, they are a much tighter team and that plays a less predictable football, scoring a fantastic amount of 12 goals in 3 matches with their new manager,
having however kept a clean sheet only on the reception to Croatia that once again was disappointing in terms of performance on the match against England.
In turn, the English national team presents the same attacking quality they presented in Russia, and things haven’t changed at all.
Spain vs England – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Regarding the match itself, Spain will play at the Benito Villamarín, Betis’ stadium, in Sevilla, with a 5-points advantage over a England that can jeopardize their chances of qualifying for the final four in case they lose again or even draw.
That way, I believe that we will watch a very dynamic match offensively from both sides, the Spanish won’t bow down at home against anyone, England will have space to be able to take advantage of some of their best weapons, with the speed of their wingers.
However, defensively, it will be hard to sustain a Spain very well oiled and that not even with a lot of rotation in terms of players failed to score 4 goals on the last friendly.
