UEFA Nations League A is the most competitive in the tournament and there are some tough matches for all the teams involved. One of the most difficult groups is Group 4 which contains Spain, England and Croatia.
With England having reached the semi-final and Croatia the final, it would appear both teams have a good chance in this group but despite their disappointing showing in the World Cup, Spain remain a very strong team.
In the third round of matches, Spain welcome England to the Benito Villamarín, the home of Real Betis in Seville. Which one of these European heavyweights will come out on top?

1. Odds Preview
England vs Spain - 8/09/2018
The Spanish have started the UEFA Nations League as if they mean business. They certainly have something to prove following their World Cup exit at the hands of Russia and appear up to the task. Spain have already defeated England away from home in this group 2-1 and it comes as little surprise to see the Spain vs England odds fall in favour of the hosts.
You can back Spain at 1.67 with 1XBET.
England were disappointed to lose their first match of the Nations League to Spain, especially having taken the lead in the game. Gareth Southgate has named a very inexperienced squad for both this match and the one against Croatia.
With Lewis Dunk, James Maddison, Mason Mount, Nathaniel Chalobah and Jadon Sancho yet to win a cap for their country, it looks as though they are going to be thrown in at the deep end. England are the outsiders to win this match at 5.75 with 1XBET.

2. Spain vs England prediction
Spain were in ruthless form when they met Croatia at home in their previous UEFA Nations League game. They scored six goals without reply and while they are unlikely to repeat that feat against England, the home crowd will be hoping to see goals.
In recent home fixtures Spain have scored 6 goals against Croatia, 6 goals against Argentina, 5 goals against Costa Rica and 3 goals against Italy. Therefore, form suggests Spain could score at least 3 goals in this match and you can back the hosts at 3.26 with 22Bet to score 2.5 or more goals.
Valencia forward Rodrigo has 4 goals in 11 games for Spain and scored in the recent 6-0 win over Croatia plus the away fixture against England. Rodrigo is on offer at 2.50 with 22Bet to score at any time in the game.
