Betting. England vs Spain [15.11.16] : victory is Southgate’s step to get a job

International Friendly Match

Wembley Stadium, London

15.11.2016

Bet: Total Goals under 2,5

On Friday evening, November 15, everybody’s attention will be caught by an extremely interesting friendly match on Wembley Stadium where England host Spain. The Three Lions will try to get revenge for the last year defeat.

Sports betting experts assumed that Sam Allardyce would help England to recover after a humiliating last 16 defeat at the hands of Iceland in France. However, because of a huge scandal Big Sam was axed after only 2 months reign. So in the last three matches of the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign the Three Lions played under the direction of Gareth Southgate who can be soon appointed England’s full-time manager. With this manager the Englishmen overcame Malta (2:0) and Scotland (3:0) and drew with Slovenia (0:0). As it was predicted by betting companies England sit atop of group F with 10 points.

After the massive failures in Brazil (World Cup 2014) and France (Euro 2016) Spain have also said goodbye to their head coach Vicente del Bosque. Nevertheless, the betting experts have doubts about Julen Lopetegui’s capacity to improve the situation and to get his team back to the summit of fame. Only time will tell. Meanwhile, after the first 4 matches La Furia Roja have 10 points and lead the group together with Italy. The Spaniards beat Liechtenstein (8:0), Albania (2:0) and Macedonia (8:0), but drew with the Italians (1:1).

While choosing a bet you have to take into account the fact that this fixture is very important for Gareth Southgate who will probably assume control of the national team. He will make his men work flat out. Besides, the last encounter between these teams ended with Spain winning 2:0. So The Three Lions are eager to get revenge. What’s more, Southgate doesn’t have any major selection concerns. At the same time Julen Lopetegui will be missing Gerard Pique, Sergio Ramos and Diego Costa. Considering that Southgate’s side was quite convincing at home a lot of betting experts predict England’s success.

The bookmakers don’t name a clear favourite, but they give a small advantage to the away team: England – 2,95, Draw – 3,30, Spain – 2,50. However, it is absolutely possible that Spain will get back home without having got what they wanted. The Three Lions have kept 4 clean sheets in a row, so it will be difficult to break through their well-drilled defense. You can bet on “Total Goals by Away Team under 1,5” (1,46). There is also a good option “England (Draw no Bet)” (2,08). As The Three Lions are also unlikely to score a lot, the bet “Total Goals under 2,5” (1,71) seems to make it through.
