One of the most exciting and interesting
matches this evening will take place at Nueva Condomia, in Murcia. Two of
the top national selections in their continents, Spain
will meet tonight in a game which will be a preparation for the upcoming World
So far Spain
is performing well, and on the other hand, Columbia has good results, but they are
struggling at the moment. It seems that their game is far under expected.
news and form
After the European Championship, Spain hasn't
been defeated, and so far they have 6 victories, and 2 draws overall.
They are at the top spot in group G of the
World Cup qualifications with the same number of points as Italy, and they
have four victories and one draw. Goal difference is quite convincing, 19 goals
scored and only two allowed. After this game, Spain
will be heading to Macedonia
to continue the qualifications, so this will be the perfect test for them.
In five last fixtures in which Spain
participated, they scored at least 2 goals.
If we look the games after the EURO 2016
which took place in Spain,
the national team scored 16 goals and allowed only one.
lineups: de Gea, Carvajal, Ramos, Pique, Alba,
Busquets, Iniesta, Koke, Pedro, Isco, Morata
news and form
The Colombians are currently second in
CONMEBOL qualifications after they picked up two very important victories
against Bolivia and Ecuador.
But this place is pretty unstable as they have only 4 points more than Ecuador on the
6th place which is out of the safe zone. The Colombians don't have consistency
in their games, and before these two victories, they had 4 encounters in wich
they didn't win.
They have three defeats and two victories
in 5 past games away from Colombia.
James Rodrigues and the boys are underachieving at the moment, and if they
continue to do so, World Cup in Russia
could get away from their hands.
lineups: Ospina, Arias, Zapata, Mina, Diaz,
Sanchez, Aguilar, Cuadrado, James, Cardona, Falcao
Head to head
It is only the third match recorded ever
between these two nations. They met in 1981 for the first time in Colombia and
the game ended without winners 1-1. The second game was played 6 years ago, and
the Spaniards won 1-0.
Whenever they play at home, the Spanish
team is a massive favorite, regardless who are the opponents. Simply, they
demolish anyone who stands in their way. We expect to see an attractive match
with many nice moves and lots of goals.
Over 2.5 goals is our first proposition and
the second one is over 1.5 in the first half time.
Of course, Spain wins.
Over 1.5 HT
