Spain – PL 10 | Won 8 | GF 31 | GA 5
The Spanish national team didn’t get off to the best of starts with a 0-0 draw against Sweden, they dominated the game but looked somewhat toothless in attack. Alvaro Morata in particular was guilty of missing a sitter and may be replaced by Gerard Moreno for the next game. Spain kept 85% possession and had 17 shots but only 5 of those found the target. They restricted Sweden to 0 shots on target but Sweden probably had the best chance when Isak went through and turned Laporte inside out before firing a shot that was turned onto the post by a Spanish defender and into the grateful arms of Simon. Dani Olmo looked dangerous for Spain and had a couple of good shots from range that troubled Olsen in the Sweden goal.
Goalscorers and Shots on Target:
- Alvaro Morata – 4 goals in 4 appearances & 1.81 SOT per 90
- Rodrigo – 3 goals in 4 appearances & 1.01 SOT per 90
- Gerard Moreno – 3 goals in 3 appearances & 1.53 SOT per 90
Poland – PL 10 | Won 8 | GF 18 | GA 5
The Poles lost 1-2 to Slovakia despite having 58% possession and 18 shots. They did have only 10 men for the last thirty minutes and with the scores 1-1 at the time of the red card it proved critical. Star man Robert Lewandowski had 5 shots but couldn’t get any on target. Poland performed well in qualifying and i think they will improve be able to improve upon their opening day loss and with a record of conceding only 5 goals in 10 games could well frustrate Spain if they again struggle to click in attack.
Goalscorers and Shots on Target:
- Robert Lewandowski – 6 goals in 10 appearances & 1.18 SOT per 90
- Krzysztof Piątek – 4 goals in 5 appearances & 1.53 SOT per 90
Betting Tips: Shots look a good route with Poland possibly able to add to the total.
