Tip Wales Spain
on 11 October 2018
Wales host Spain in an international friendly this week and the hosts will be looking to pull off a morale boosting win over the European giants. The Welsh side have made a mixed start under Ryan Giggs so far and they have won 2, drawn 2 and lost 1 of their last five games. The home side will be without their best player Gareth Bale here and that is a major blow. Wales showed in the Euros that they can pull off upsets but without Bale, it is a very tough ask. Spain on the other hand will be determined to secure a win here. They will be hurt with their performance in the World Cup and Luis Enrique will have his side fired up. The former Barcelona boss has won his first two matches as Spain head coach, following up a 2-1 win over England with a stunning 6-0 triumph over 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia.
Our bet explained
- Spain have scored 15 goals in their last 6 matches in all competitions.
- Wales have scored 10 goals in their last 5 matches in all competitions.
- Spain have conceded 7 goals in their last 6 matches in all competitions.
- Wales have conceded 3 goals in their last 2 matches in all competitions.
Our Wales Spain tip
Both teams will be looking for a positive result here and this should be an open game. There will be a fair few chances for either side and it will be interesting to see which side manages to convert their chances better. A high scoring game is very much on the cards here. Over 2.5 goals seem quite likely.
