Russia v Spain Preview, Women’s 2013 European Championship, Thursday 18th July 2013

Russia although sitting bottom of group C have played well grabbing a draw against England who admittedly are not playing their best, and apart from the heavily 3 – 0 loss to group winners France they would be unlucky to not grab a result against the Spanish side who do have better head to head statistics.

Spain started so well with a shock win over England in the dying minutes and only losing 1 – 0 to France who won the group far too comfortably much to most peoples shock who were expecting the English to be there or a bouts. It is a draw or a win for Spain who have not yet secured 2nd place with England and Russia both wanting that guaranteed passage through to the next round. That result will give them 2nd place with then the remaining slots open to possible 3rd place group finishes.

Russia v Spain Team News

Russia Team News:

Russia need to push Spain hard and pressure them for the early goal if they are to succeed here with a majority of these two teams results being won by Spain, having only scored 2 goals so far in this competition they will need to dig deep to find that winner if there is one. Sergei Lavrentyev will need to pick the right team to play the creative Spanish who like to play much like the mens team.

Spain Team News:

Coach Ignacio Quereda needs to boost his young and in-experienced squad to win and fight for the ball come Thursday as sadly they are not the most physical of sides which could play to Russia’s advantage here. Quereda is the most experienced coach currently in the competition who has managed the Spanish side since 1988 which is an incredible feat considering the rate of managers who get fired lately.

Russia v Spain Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

With Spain doing better than predicted so far in this competition you could expect them to go on and win this match, but due to the inexperience of the young squad I feel they could buckle under the ‘must get a result’ type of pressure which could open the doors for a Russian win.

I would like to say that I feel Russia could snatch a win here, I guess its mainly due to what England need if they manage to beat the French.
