Spain – Ukraine: the end of a successful guest streak?
Ukraine does not lose in 12 games in a row, but whether the guests will be able to remain undefeated on September 6 in a duel with Spain – the answer is in the forecast. Will the favorite take the glasses?
The Spanish national team in the last draw of the League of Nations played frankly poorly – being in the same group with England and Croatia, it was considered the main favorite to reach the playoffs, but it did not work out. The “red fury” finished second, losing one point to the British.
In qualifying for the European Championship, Luis Enrique ‘s team was more convincing, the Spaniards had no real competitors – Sweden, Norway and Romania fought for the second place in the table. Spain won the group without a single defeat – 26 points were scored in 10 matches, the second Sweden remained at a distance of five points.
In the new League of Nations draw, Spain is in the same group as Germany, Switzerland and Ukraine. In the first round, the “red fury” almost lost points, but in the last minutes equalized the score and took away a 1: 1 draw from Germany.
The national team of Ukraine in the last draw of the League of Nations was in the “B” League, where they opposed Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Without any problems, Andriy Shevchenko’s team won the right to move to a stronger division, gaining nine points in four matches, thus winning the group.
At a very high level, Ukraine also held the selection for the European Championship, the group of the Ukrainians was one of the most difficult – Portugal and Serbia also hoped to break into the tournament. However, contrary to all forecasts, Ukraine became the strongest in the group, ahead of the second Portugal by two points.
In the current draw of the League of Nations, the Ukrainians started with a victory – at home with a score of 2: 1, they beat Switzerland, immediately becoming the leaders of the quartet.
The teams played each other five times and Spain did not lose in any of these matches – four wins and a draw
Spain has not lost in any of the last 12 matches – nine wins and three draws
Spain have six wins in their last six home games
The national team of Ukraine had a good fight with Switzerland, gaining three points, but this meeting was not without mistakes, the result could actually be completely different. Spain will play today only to win, given the competition in the group, and the “red fury” is able to use the opponent’s mistakes more effectively than the Swiss did, the Spaniards also have an advantage in the class, the guests hardly have a chance of points.
We believe that guests have no chance. Forecast – Asian handicap (-1) for Spain . In 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.90
