Spain will be hosting the Czech Republic this Sunday, in what will be its last match of the month, as the ongoing edition of the Nations League heads into a break.
After a sedate start to the competition, which saw them play consecutive draws against Portugal and the Czech Republic in the reverse fixture, the La Roja, ranked 7th in the world in the latest FIFA rankings, managed to get back to winning ways in it’s the latest trip to Stade de Genève.
Pablo Sarabia scored in the 13th minute of the match, and the Swiss was unable to reply, handing Spain 3 important points. With that, the 2020-21 edition runners have now jumped to the second spot on the points table, 2 points behind the group leaders Portugal. However, if they lose this match, Spain will concede the spot to its opponents, the Czech Republic, who are just 1 point behind.
That seems unlikely at this stage, as most football betting sites are giving pretty long odds for an away win.
The Czech Republic began the Nations League on a winning note, beating Switzerland 2-1 in a home fixture. The fans of the team would also have been pretty happy with its performance against Spain, where they were ahead 2-1 till the final moments of the game. But a 90th-minute equalizer by Inigo Martinez forced them to share the spoils. Its two-match lossless streak was ended by Portugal in its last match, played at Estadio Jose Alvalade.
Joao Cancelo and Goncalo Guedes scored in quick succession for the home team, handing them a victory, and denying the Czech Republic any points. The loss leaves them at the third spot on the table, 4 points clear of the last spot.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Spain vs Czech Republic Nations League 2022. The match is going to be played at Estadio La Rosaleda, Malaga, on 12th June 2022.
Luis Enrique is once again expected to churn his players for this match, as he looks to give everyone a chance to prepare for the upcoming FIFA World Cup starting in Qatar later this year. However, he will be playing without the services of Raul de Tomas and Ansu Fati. Eric Garcia and Marco Asensio are expected to earn a start in this match.
As for the visitors, Jakub Jankto is likely to miss out from action for at least a couple of weeks, after picking up an injury in the reverse fixture. Ondrej Lingr and Jan Kuchta too are doubtful for this game. Tomas Vaclik is expected to make a return in this game.
We expect the home team to put up a better performance this time around, and pick up a full set of points this weekend.
Bet on Spain to win.
Spain has kept 4 clean slates in 6 matches it has played against the Czech Republic. Also, it hasn’t allowed the opposition to score in 7 of the last 9 matches, and we reckon that they will manage to do the same in this match too. The odds seem pretty decent all things considered.
4 of the last 6 matches between the two teams have produced fewer than 3 goals. 4 of the last 8 matches for Spain, and 5 of the last 7 matches for the Czech Republic have also seen less than 2.5 goals scored in them. We think you can place a bet on the same happening this time around as well.
