Date and time: October 13, 7:45pm
Location: Kiev Olympic Stadium
Spain are returning to the scene of their historic Euro 2012 victory party, and they’ll be hoping to beat Ukraine for the second time in a month when they meet on Tuesday night. La Roja squeezed past Switzerland at home on Saturday night, and it could be difficult to get a victory in Kiev.
Their lack of a main striker was famously not a problem years ago, but it has rendered them weak in attack recently. That is despite a 4-0 win over this opposition in their last meeting. Ukraine have suffered some heavy defeats recently, and they have only scored two or more goals twice in their last six games.
We think both teams will not score in this game. You can back that at 11/10 with Bet365.
Why are we backing Spain here?
Technically, we aren’t in an official sense. But 2/5 on Spain from Bet365 is definitely likely to happen. Spain will win the midfield battle, and that is why they’ll come out on top.
What other markets are worth a look?
Ferran Torres scored in this fixture last month, and he may be worth backing in this one here. The Manchester City man is at 11/8 to score anytime with Bet365.
Also, Spain won in both halves last time these sides met. They are a good bet to do that here; get odds of 21/20 on the HT/FT markets with Bet365.
Odds correct as of 11/10/2020
