Spain Probable Lineup

Raul de Tomas is the only injury concern for Luis Enrique. He may field a different side that got a win against Switzerland as he likes to do.

Enrique may give a nod to Robert Sanchez over Unai Simon for the goalkeeper position. Inigo Martinez, who scored the 90th minute equaliser against Czech in matchday 2, should retain his position in the back four. Carvajal, Eric Garcia, and Marcos Alonso are expected to start against Czech.

Koke, Rodri, and Carlos Soler may start in the midfield, with Gavi coming in the 2nd half. Ferran Torres, Olmo, and Asensio may lead the attack in a 4-3-3 formation.

Spain Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Sanchez; Carvajal, Garcia, Martinez, Alonso; Koke, Rodri, Soler; Asensio, Torres, Olmo

Czech Republic Probable Lineup

Jakub Jankto will be unavailable for Czech due to injury. He took a knock in the 2-2 draw against Spain. Jaroslav Zeleny is expected to return after sitting out the last match against Portugal.

Spian vs. Czech Republic Prediction:

Spain will host Czech Republic for a win this time. La Roja drew 2-2 by coming from behind twice when they visited Czech in matchday 2.

Spain will look for their 2nd win a row pushing for the top position in Group A2. They cannot afford dropping points at this crucial stage as only 2 more matches to be played after this. On the other hand, the Czechs will fire all cylinders for the same motivation as they are a point behind Spain, racing for the top spot.

La Roja will be favorites to win this game in front of the home crowd. We don’t see Spain dropping points in this match. Our pick is Spain to bag 3 points. Spain 2-1 Czech Republic.
