AUS vs SPA Dream11 Prediction | Australia vs Spain FIH Pro League Match Preview | Team News & Fantasy Team
Australia will next face the Spanish challenge in their next match in the FIH Pro League. The Aussies sit 3rd in the 8 team contest, while their rivals Spain are second from the bottom. Both the teams will treat the game as a must win to help elevate their respective positions.
Competition – FIH Pro League
Venue – Sydney Olympic Park, Hockey Centre, Sydney
Date & Time – 2nd March | 09:30 AM IST
Having lost their first 2 games of the campaign, Australia have done really well to find themselves among the top 3. The Kookaburras have 7 points from their 4 matches so far. Australia lost a 5-5 draw in the shootout to the Netherlands in their first game, before being outclassed by Belgium in a 1-4 loss. However, an immediate improvement was showcased as they won their next game against Germany by a scoreline of 4-2. Their last game also ended in a victory against the much fancied Great Britain.
Spain, on the other hand, are yet to take off in the tournament. The Spaniards are yet to register a victory in the normal time and have won all their points in shoot-outs. Their visit to Australia doesn’t look bright as Australia have found their groove on their home turf. A loss in the upcoming match could be detrimental for the visitors and they must do everything possible to conjure up a win down under.
Head-to-head: (Since 2013)
Played – 6; Won by Australia – 5; Won by Spain – 1
Australia have history on their side as they have won 5 of the 6 games played between the two nations since 2013. What’s more, the fact that Aussies are playing at home makes them clear favourites for the upcoming game.
