SPAIN need only a point against Georgia on Sunday to ensure they top Scotland’s Euro 2024 group but they will be going all out to continue their recent good form and end with a win.
Luis de la Fuente’s men cruised to a bloodless win in Cyprus on Thursday to go two points clear of a Scotland side who needed a last gasp Lawrence Shankland goal to avoid yet another defeat in Tbilisi.
Since a rocky start to the campaign where they lost at Hampden, the Spanish have resumed normal service and again look like a top team.
They hammered Sunday’s opponents 7-1 when they met in the former Soviet nation and Willy Sagnol’s men will be desperate to prove that was a fluke.
They gave Scotland plenty of problems on Thursday although they did tire and you wonder how much it took out of them to concede an injury time leveller.
And they usually do most of their best work at home and not on the road although the Spanish disproved that theory when they met.
Now Spain they will want to make it seven wins out of eight in the group when they entertain the Georgians in Valladolid.
Spain will be the cornerstone of accas you would imagine at 1/8 with bet365.
Georgia can be backed at 35/1 with Paddy Power and the draw is 9/1 with UniBet.
That 7-1 demolition in September was the sixth meeting between the sides with Spain winning five and the Georgians once in a friendly nine years ago.
Barcelona superkid Lamine Yamal continued his remarkable progress when the 16-year-old netted in midweek in Cyprus.
Napoli hero Khvicha Kvaratskhelia netted a double against Scotland and was a real thorn in the Scots’ side.
Anytime goal scorer prices will be out nearer the game.
Spain might not quite repeat the seven goals they rattled in against Georgia in that September meeting, but they should still be far too good for their opponents.
The Georgians put a lot of effort into their match against the Scots and they looked leggy and tired long before the end.
A night in Valladolid chasing shadows with Spain is the last thing they need and it could get messy for them. Back the hosts to win and over 3.5 goals with bet365 at evens.
Spain were three goals up inside 28 minutes in Cyprus before easing off and it could be a similar story on Sunday, Spain are 31/20 with Paddy Power to score over 1.5 goals in the first half.
