Spain Warm Up For World Cup Title Quest With Friendly Against Tunisia

The game, which kicks off at 7.45pm local time, will be played at the Krasnodar Stadium, in Krasnodar

Spain are without out doubt one of the favourites to lift the World Cup trophy this summer. Having won the event in South Africa in 2010, not to mention back to back European titles in 2008 and 2012, a disappointing showing in 2014 at the World Cup in Brazil saw the then-world champions eliminated at the group stages. Now, they play their final warm-up friendly against Tunisia prior to the main event getting underway.

Where can I win?

There is of course little actually at stake in this game as it is only a friendly, but nevertheless Spain will want to put in a top performance before they start competing at the World Cup itself. Coach Julen Lopetegui has got Spain back playing some fantastic, aesthetically pleasing football once again, and now has his Real Madrid contingent ready for action following their Champions League triumph over Liverpool.

The most straightforward bet you can make is simply betting on the outcome of the game. Who do you think will win this encounter – will it be Spain, Tunisia, or will it finish in a draw?

The safe money would appear to be on Spain, who are priced short at just 1.28, as you might expect. Tunisia’s price reflects how much they are outsiders in this one, coming in at 10.00, while if you want to sit on the fence and back a draw, you can do just that at 5.25, according to the Oddsshark website.

Of course, exact scores are always more difficult to predict, but odds and recent form can give us some sort of an indication as to what the specific final outcome might be. Spain come into this game unbeaten in their last six, having won four of those outings.

However, when it comes to recent form Tunisia can just about match their more illustrious opponents. The north African side are also unbeaten in their last six outings, but have won just three of those games – nevertheless, they can come into a game against one of the top sides  in the world full of confidence.

However, Spain’s technical superiority should shine through and they may well end up winning this game by a narrow margin. You can back the 2010 World Cup winners to win this one by a 1-0 score line at a price of 5.50.

There are always, though, those that like to play it a little safer and hedge their bets. That is why you can bet on a “Double chance” option, selecting two possible outcomes for the friendly rather than just one – thus doubling your chances of winning some money in the process.

You can opt for Spain or a draw at the very low price of 1.071, or Tunisia or a draw at the lengthened price of 3.75. Alternatively, you can back either side to walk away victorious at 1.18.

With this being the final friendly before the World Cup, the match is unlikely to be played at a frenetic pace, and as a result that there’s a chance we will not see too many goals in this encounter. If you think there will be under 2.5 goals in this one then you can back your instincts at 2.00. If you think there will be over 2.5 goals then the price drops slightly to 1.80.

And given Spain’s likely dominance in this one, it may well be that both teams don’t get on the score sheet. If you think only one (or neither) team will score, that possibility comes in at 1.53. However, if you fancy both teams to hit the back of the net during the 90 minutes then the odds lengthen to 2.37.

But all in all, this looks like it should be a fairly comfortable evening’s work for the 2010 world champions. It is not unreasonable to expect Spain to win this game by, say a two-goal margin, and you can back such an outcome at 4.00.

Odds: Spain (1.28), Tunisia (10.00), draw (5.25)
