Santiago Bernabeu – Euro 2020 Qualifying
Spain are looking to continue their 100% start to their qualifying campaign as they play Sweden in this Euro 2020 preview. The Blagult have made a good start as well though, and a good result at the Bernabeu would leave them in a great position in Group F.

Sweden failed to get out of the group, while Spain won the tournament, beating Germany in the final.

Team news and form
Last six: LLWWWW
Real Madrid defender Ramos captains his country in the familiar surrounds of the Bernabeu in these Spain v Sweden predictions. He’ll win his 165th cap on Monday, leaving him just two behind Iker Casillas’s national record. Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga could start in goal again ahead of Manchester United’s David de Gea, while Jose Gaya got the nod at left-back ahead of Jordi Alba against the Faroe Islands, and rewarded his manager with a goal.
Last six: WLDWDW
Sampdoria midfielder Albin Ekdal captains the away team in these football predictions, with Kristoffer Olsson and former Sunderland man Sebastian Larsson competing for a start alongside him in Sweden’s engine room. Mainz forward Robin Quaison will partner Marcus Berg up front, after scoring his fifth goal in nine international appearances on Friday night. Leeds United’s Pontus Jansson will start in central defence.
Spain vs Sweden prediction, preview and betting tips
The top two ranked teams in Group F meet for the first time on Monday night. Spain have won their opening three games, while Sweden dropped points away to Norway. Both sides come into these football predictions for today on the back of wins on Friday though. Spain start as the heavy favourites, but do Sweden have any chance of causing an upset?
There are some good players in the Swedish side, but their strength is more than the sum of their parts. They’ll try to keep things tight early on in this Spain v Sweden prediction, and see what they can do on the break and from set pieces. Janne Andersson’s side cruised to a 3-0 victory over Malta on Friday, but they conceded three times in drawing against Norway in their only away game so far. The last of those was a painful 96th-minute equaliser.
Spain will test that defensive solidity with the lion’s share of possession. La Roja have won their last four matches, including a 4-1 victory away to the Faroe Islands on Friday. Luis Enrique’s side are starting to put a disappointing end to their Nations League campaign behind them, which began with a 2-1 win away to England and thumping 6-0 victory over World Cup finalists Croatia in Elche. They win this game on a normal day, but we’re after some value in your Spain vs Sweden betting tips.
Sweden have scored 10 goals in their last four fixtures, while Spain conceded against the Faroe Islands in their last game. Norway scored against La Roja in their last match on Spanish soil, so we’re backing both teams to score odds here at 13/8 with William Hill. Spain to win and both teams to score could be one of the best football betting tips for this game at 11/4.
Spain have scored 11 goals in four home fixtures since the World Cup, at an average of 2.75 per game. Sweden meanwhile conceded three in their last away game. We’re going for a 3-1 Spanish victory, which is priced at 11/1 in your football score predictions. With Sergio Ramos scoring first, those odds rise to 119/1.
Spain vs Sweden first goalscorer predictions
Ramos has been in superb scoring form for Spain recently. He’s been taking his country’s penalties, and has six goals in his last seven international appearances. The Real Madrid defender broke the deadlock against the Faroe Islands last time out, and is 9/1 with Betway to repeat the trick here. Alvaro Morata scored both of Spain’s goals in their 2-0 victory over Malta, and he’s the 3/1 favourite in the first goalscorer odds with the same bookmaker. If La Roja go on to win 3-1, that price rises to 48/1.
