Spain vs Faroe Islands
Euro • Qualification Group F Day 6
Venue: Estadio El Molinon, Gijon
Kick-off time: 7:45pm BST tonight
Spain are making smooth progress as they aim to reach the Euro 2020 qualifiers. They have won all five of their qualifying games and have built up a five point lead over second placed Sweden. With a seven-point advantage over third placed Norway, it’s going to take a drastic slump in form for Spain not to qualify. They have already scored 13 goals despite three of their five games to date being away from home. Spain got a big win in their last match getting a 2-1 away win in Romania.
The Faroe Islands are rock bottom of this group having lost all five of their qualifiers. They have already let in 16 goals and a few more are going to be conceded in Spain on Sunday. Six goals have been conceded in two away games in this group, two away at Malta who are one from bottom in the table. Three previous games against Spain have seen them concede 13 goals, so go for Spain to win this on a -4 handcap.
