Euro 2016 Qualifiers Betting: Spain vs. UkrainePublished March 27, 2015 by Amir G
Spain and Ukraine meet for a bid to secure a place at the Group C top in the Euro 2016 qualifiers (kickoff 19:45 UK time).
The weekend's Euro 2016 qualifiers summon today's match between Spain and Ukraine at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan stadium in Seville (19:45 UK time). Playing in Group C, these two teams are closely matched with the same amount of 9 points – Spain leads by 5 goals in goal difference. This sets the stage for a very interesting meeting as both teams will vie to reach leading Slovakia's 12 points with a win.
Spain is coming into this game with one very notable injury that is very sour indeed: Striker Diego Costa has been ruled out for today's game, after suffering an injury playing for his team Chelsea – he is expected to be replaced by Malaga striker Juanmi.
Spain has won three out of four games in the qualifiers so far, losing 2-1 only to the current leaders from Slovakia. The Spaniards have a lot to prove after their lackluster performance in the World Cup
Ukraine are a very able team as they have done well to demonstrate in the Euro 2016 qualifiers so far. They beat Belarus, Macedonia and Luxembourg so far, suffering only one loss by the legs of leading Slovakia. Their defense has been very solid in the four games – the only goal they sustained was in the 0-1 loss to Slovakia.
Midfielder Andriy Yarmolenko is one of Ukraine's strong cards, having secured an impressive hat-trick back in November's 3-0 over Luxembourg, he has 18 goals in total for team.
