Nations League betting tips: Spain to leapfrog Germany for top spot?

| 17.11.2020

We’ve reached matchday six of the Nations League group stages. There’s still plenty to be resolved at both ends of the standings with qualification and relegation places to be decided tonight.

The biggest tussle will be in Seville as Spain host Germany with the victor clinching a spot in the Nations League Finals next year.

World champions France are in action against Sweden having already qualified from Group C. Elsewhere, Croatia will be playing to avoid relegation against Euro 2016 winners, Portugal.

It could be a night of fine margins and we’re here to look ahead to the action with the latest odds and previews from across the continent…

Spain v Germany – 19:45

Germany kick-off a point clear of Spain after beating Ukraine last weekend. A draw in Spain will be enough for Joachim Löw’s unbeaten side to top the group, and they are 4/7 to win or draw tonight.

The pressure is on Spain after they were held by Switzerland last time out. Luis Enrique’s side will be buoyed by the fact they’ve won both their previous home games in the group and they need another win here to qualify for the Finals. Spain are 13/10 favourites to win.

Sergio Ramos missed two second-half penalties against Switzerland, the defender is 7/2 to score anytime. For Germany, Timo Werner is 9/2 to break the deadlock.

Croatia v Portugal – 19:45

Croatia (13/5) have looked a shadow of the side that reached the 2018 World Cup Final and could face relegation from the group if they fail to beat Portugal tonight.

The visitors are 21/10 favourites despite knowing they can’t qualify from the group after their defeat to France last week.

Our traders fancy goals in this match with the hosts having conceded thirteen times in five games. Over 2.5 goals is 20/23.

Ante Budimir is 5/2 to score anytime for the hosts. Our traders also have Cristiano Ronaldo 4/1 to score two or more goals. Portugal’s Diogo Jota is 9/4 to score anytime.

France v Sweden – 19:45

With a place in the Nations League Finals already confirmed, Les Bleus are 8/5 to sign off their Nations League group campaign with three points at home.

France are unbeaten with four wins from five matches, whereas Sweden have lost four of their five games.

Sweden are 11/2 to pull off a shock result which could see them remain in the group depending on Croatia’s result with Portugal.

Over 1.5 goals is 1/3 with Kylian Mbappe 3/1 to score first. Marcus Berg is 10/3 to score anytime for the visitors.
