Spain Team News:

Spain squad for the UEFA Euro 2020:

  • Goalkeepers: De Gea, Kepa, Pau Lopez
  • Defenders: Ramos, Carvajal, Llorente, Hermoso, Gaya, Inigo Martinez, Alba
  • Midfielders: Sergi Roberto, Busquets, Navas, Cazorla, Parejo, Rodri, Fabian
  • Forwards: Oyarzabal, Isco, Asensio, Rodrigo, Aspas, Morata

————————————————————————————————————————–

Possible ins or outs of this game:

  • Spain’s 4-1 win over the Faroe Islands means the manager could go with the same playing 11.
  • For the 2nd game in a row, Kepa could keep David de Gea out of the playing 11. The Chelsea keeper should start actually after his solid display in the last game.
  • Three of the four men forming the backline got the goals against the Faroe, so they all should start. Though, the wing-backs Jose Gaya and Jesus Navas could be replaced by Jordi Alba and Dani Carvajal.
  • Sergio Busquets was an unused substitute and may come into the side, replacing Rodri in the heart of the midfield.
  • Santo Cazorla played the full 90 minutes against the Faroe Islands and should be replaced by Marco Asensio.

—————————————————————————————————————————

Probable XI:

Arrizabalaga (GK), Carvajal, Ramos, Hermoso, Alba, Roberto, Busquets, Isco Aspas, Morata, Asensio


Sweden:

  • Sweden head coach Janne Andersson is unlikely to make any changes here. Though, he could name an extra man in the midfield to suffocate the hosts. Sebastian Larsson could be the man.

Possible ins or outs of this game:

Probable XI: Olsen (GK), Lustig, Jansson, Helander, Augustinsson, Claesson, Olsson, Ekdal, Larsson, Forsberg, Berg


Potential Game Changers:

Emil Forsberg
Alvaro Morata
Sergio Ramos
Viktor Claesson
Robin Quaison
Isco


Stats and facts:

  • This will be the 13th match between Spain and Sweden with the 2010 World Champions edging ahead with 5 wins against Sweden’s three victories.
  • This is the first fixture between these two nations in almost 11 years. The last match came at Euro 2008, with Spain winning 2-1.
  • Spain are unbeaten at home against Sweden since 1988.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Spain are building for the future. There is no Fernando Torres of 2008 or 2009, no David Villa to guarantee goals, and neither are Xavi and Iniesta in the team to dictate things, while Gerard Pique is retired from the international football.

But this team is different and dangerous still. Isco and Marco Asensio can pop up with goals. Sergio Ramos is becoming a threat of sorts in goal, after netting five times in the last 8 games for La Roja. The last game exemplary in every sense about this team’s capabilities where three defenders got the goals.

But here against Sweden, we back Spain’s offensive players to get the goal. Alvaro Morata’s club form may be a concern these days, but the former Juventus and Real Madrid player has two goals in the last four games for his country.


X-Factor:

Spain’s midfield: Choose Isco and Sergio Busquets:

Sweden are no Faroe Islands, they will be a threat all day long. The midfield will be the key here for the hosts. The likes of Isco and Sergio Busquets will have to be on the top of their game to counter the threat of Emil Forsberg and Co.
