Spain – Sweden, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR SPAIN - SWEDEN
Spain’s victory over the Faroes was remembered with Ramos’s 122nd victory in his national career, which was a record and he beat last records of Casillas and Xavi. He even scored the first goal in the game. The Spaniards are renowned as a team that rarely loses matches for the euro and world qualifications at home. This is hardly happening. Specifically for Euro Qualifiers Spain has 18 consecutive home wins as the last loss was long time ago in 2003 from Greece, and this remained their only defeat in this century.
Sweden took the match with Malta without any difficulty, as expected. Of course, here the goal of the Swedes is not to lose in today’s match, although this team proved to be a very dangerous one after reaching the quarterfinals of the World Cup. The style of the Swedes is well known, but more importantly, they perform almost perfectly everything that is required of them.
We expect Sweden to close much and for the Spaniards to be very difficult to break through. We think that at the moment in the Spanish national team there is not enough quality in attack to make the teams afraid of them. Even if the Spaniards take their three points, it would be with 1 goal difference and a lot of struggle than something different. For this reason, our prediction for the match is Sweden +2.0 AH at 1.50.
Sweden did not lose by more than 1 goal difference in 10 consecutive games
