Spain is coming into this match after drawing versus Italy. Spain, the defending champions threw everyone a curveball from a strategical standpoint when they sat two of their star forwards and only went with the one striker upfront in an odd move to say the least. We’ll see if the Spanish coaching staff has any more tricks up their sleeve today, but we do not think they will be necessary against is vastly inferior side in Ireland.
Ireland on the other hand comes into this game on the heels of a 3 -1 loss to Croatia. That loss coupled with tough games coming up versus Italy and today versus Spain probably signifies the end for the Irish in this tournament. The only chance Ireland has is if they can put significant pressure on what sometimes can be a vulnerable back line for the Spanish.
Since Spain absolutely needs to get three points in this game this could be another ugly result for Ireland. Because of the sense of urgency the Spanish has to come out with, we like the over for total goals scored in this game but prior to wager read a sportsbook reviews.
