- Six of Spain’s last seven internationals have featured fewer than 2.5 goals, including the 1-1 draw between these sides in September’s reverse fixture.
- The last five meetings between the teams have all produced under 2.5 goals.
- Three of Germany’s last five away games have also generated fewer than 2.5 goals.
- Both sides have drawn four of their last seven outings.
Tight Showdown Expected in Seville
Tuesday’s standout fixture in the UEFA Nations League comes from the Olympic Stadium in Seville, as Spain and Germany fight it out for top spot in League A-4.
There was little to separate the teams throughout their 1-1 draw in Stuttgart two months ago and the same can be said for their section overall, with Germany leading Spain by just a single point going into this final group match.
It means Spain need a win and Germany require just a point to reach next year’s finals, and with so much riding on this contest between two evenly matched sides, it’s reasonable to expect a tight affair in Andalusia this week.
The notion that we’ll witness a low scoring game is enhanced by the fact that all but one of Spain’s last seven outings have produced under 2.5 goals, and Luis Enrique’s men are definitely establishing a growing reputation for being solid and workmanlike in contrast to Spanish outfits of the recent past.
That’s been reflected in four draws from their last seven games, with Germany also seeing four of their last seven end all square.
So all in all, the magnitude of Tuesday’s tie and recent form points to an under 2.5 goals wager here, while another 1-1 score-line between these European giants looks the most likely outcome again – a result which would see Joachim Loew’s troops edge their way through to the final stages.
