Spain and Germany Return for the UEFA Nations League MatchesPublished October 10, 2020 by Florin P
The UEFA Nations League action resumes on Saturday, with Spain and Germany as front runners in the race for the first place in Group 4
The football week was rich in special events and all sorts of competitions were scheduled from Monday to Sunday. The weekend definitely belongs to the UEFA Nations League and some of the most exciting matches are scheduled on Sunday. There are two games that stand out from the crowd on the first day of the weekend, when Spain and Germany are expected to cruise past Ukraine and Switzerland.
Spain is Set to Extend Invincible Run in the UNL
Spain is the current Group 1 leader, with a tiny advantage over Ukraine and a three point edge over today’s opponents. Victory over Switzerland seems to be at hand, as the multiple world and European champions are in good shape and have no injury concerns ahead of this match. Spain is undefeated in the last 13 matches and has an impeccable track record in the UEFA Nations League. If it manages to extend the winning streak, those who bet on their victory at bet365 Sports will be paid at 2/5.
Switzerland is a solid defensive team that allowed an average of one goal per match even when playing against the toughest opponents. Unfortunately for the small European nation, the offensive isn’t much better recently and they had a hard time scoring against better teams. That’s why they are currently sitting in the last place with a single point after two matches and are in dire need of victory. Playing offensive football again Spain on the road is risky, but if they prevail, punters will benefit from odds of 7/1.
Ukraine Seeks First Win Over Germany on Saturday
Ukraine is once again the revelation of the UEFA Nations League and has an excellent chance of advancing to the next stage. They were unable to contain the much better Spain in the previous match and conceded four unanswered goals. On Saturday afternoon at 7:45 PM UK time they will take on Germany, in another game where the Eastern Europeans are credited the second chance. In spite of their recent positive results, they are priced at 8/1 to win in spite of having home pitch advantage.
Germany is a solid traveling team and one capable of defeating pretty much any opponent regardless of venue. For this fixture, it will feature the best players available, as the team is in dire need of victory to tie Spain for the lead. The two teams have met on seven occasions since 1997 and Germany has a crushing head to head record with three victories and no defeats. They are priced at 3/10 by 888 Sport to win, which isn’t spectacular value given the fact that four direct matches have ended undecided.
