Wales vs Spain Betting Tips

Wales entertain Spain in an international friendly at the Millennium Stadium on Thursday night. The Euro 2016 finalists witnessed a mixed run of results during the previous international break w where a maiden win over Republic of Ireland was combined with a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Denmark – both of which came in the Nations League.

Compared to them, La Roja had no such concerns as they started their Nations League campaign with a clean sweep of results. The 2014 World Cup champions begun their competition with a close 2-1 triumph over England but they thereafter came into their own against Croatia, whom they humbled by a comfortable 6-0 scoreline.

For the Spain friendly, Wales are given a price of 19/4 for a win over Betway but the result appears far from likely, given the vast difference in terms of talent between the teams. La Roja may have witnessed a disappointing World Cup during the summer but they have since sparkled under the tutelage of new coach Luis Enrique, who has got the best out of the players. As such, a Spain victory seems the most likelier outcome which could be backed at 4/7 with Betway.

Meanwhile, looking into the recent defensive record of both teams, Wales can be fancied to at least score once against Spain with the presence of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey within their ranks. However, La Roja should have the firepower to outscore the hosts and thus, we fancy a 3-1 win for the visitors at 13/1 with Betway.

Wales and Spain have faced each other on just five occasions and among those four have come through World Cup qualification matches. Spain have dominated the proceedings with two victories and two draws and their sole defeat happened to their last meeting between them at the Racecourse Ground, Wrexham in 1985.
