Preview:

Spain and Ukraine face off at Sanchez Pizjuan, Sevilla on this match of the 5th round of group C of the 2016 European Cup qualifiers.

Spain is coming of a home loss 0-1 on a friendly against the World champion Germany. Their performance on that last world cup was miserable, not making out of the group stages. Despite that they are still 2nd on the group with 9 points (3 wins, 1 loss).

The visitor’s last match ended nil-nil on a friendly match versus Lithuania. The Ukrainians however, have won their last 3 official matches, two of them away, 0-2 against Belarus and 0-3 against Luxemburg. They are currently the 3rd placed team on the group with the same points as their opponent.

The head to head history favors the Spaniards with a 4-0 win on their only match, played on the 2006 World Cup.

Analysis of Spain

Diego Costa will probably not play on this match due to an injury contracted on his last club appearance. Juanmi, forward from Malaga, should be the likely substitute.

With names like Iniesta, Koke, Silva and Isco, it is expected that the home team will dominate the ball position. The triangulations will be a constant with little to none aerial opportunities appearing for the home crew.

Taking into account the weak overall skill level of the opposing team it is not unlikely that the Spanish team would play with some underutilized players. Even if this happens, the quality gap between the 2 squads is still abysmal.


Confirmed Lineup: Casillas, Piqué, Sergio Ramos, Juanfran, Jordi Alba, Koke, Isco, Busquets, Iniesta, David Silva, Álvaro Morata.
Coach: Del Bosque.

Analysis of Ukraine

The highlight of the visiting team is Yarmolenko. The talented Dynamo Kyiv striker scored a hat-trick on their last match against Luxemburg, gaining that extra motivation for this round.

A 4-4-2 formation will likely be used by Fomenko with tactical balance as the main worry. Using the big names on his squad’s midfield (Tymoshchuk, Yarmolenko Zozulya and Oliynyk) to his advantage. 


Confirmed Lineup: A. Pyatov, Y. Khacheridi, V. Shevchuk, O. Kucher, A. Fedetskiy, A. Tymoshchuk, R. Rotan, Y. Konoplyanka, T. Stepanenko, A. Yarmolenko, R. Zozulya.
Coach: M. Fomenko.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match is the appearance of goals. We predict that Ukraine will try to preserve the draw as long as possible, eventually succumbing to the higher quality of the Spanish team.
