Spain v Italy Betting Special: Back Silva to lead the way for La Roja

ShareClose Comments
There will be plenty of talented attacking players on display at the Bernabeu on Saturday night but we think a familiar face will be on the scoresheet

David Villa's recall to the Spain squad after four years has dominated the headlines in Spain in the run up to La Roja's vital qualifier against Italy.

Whether or not the 35-year-old gets a chance against the Azzurri remains to be seen, however, with manager Julen Lopetegui likely to start Alvaro Morata in the central striker role.

Lopetegui has always deployed a recognised striker in his starting XIs and Morata unsurprisingly is the shortest-priced player to find the back of the net.


dabblebet offer the Chelsea forward at 13/10 (2.30) to get his name on the scoresheet after he netted in Spain's last match on home soil, a 2-2 draw with Colombia back in June.

Iago Aspas is next in the betting at 6/4 (2.50), ahead of Villa at 9/5 (2.80), although Marco Asensio looks a more tempting option at 23/10 (3.30). Despite his sensational start to the season though, there may not be a place in the starting line-up for Asensio, with Lopetegui perhaps opting for David Silva and Andres Iniesta to provide support to Morata.

Silva himself has a sensational scoring record for the national team with the Manchester City forward finding the back of the net in each of La Roja's last four matches.

He is offered at 14/5 (3.80) to do so once more which looks great value as does the price of 15/4 (4.75) for Saul Niguez to score. The Atletico Madrid midfielder has a real eye for goal, although he is not guaranteed a starting berth on Saturday evening.

In terms of Italy, Ciro Immobile can be backed at 9/4 (3.25) to net at the Bernabeu. The 27-year-old enjoyed his best ever top-flight season last year, netting 23 goals in Serie A, while he has also scored five times for his country in World Cup qualifying. 

Elsewhere, exciting young Torino forward Andrea Belotti is priced at 11/5 (3.20) while Daniele De Rossi, whose penalty salavaged a draw for Italy against Spain a year ago, is priced at 11/2 (6.50).

Giorgio Chiellini, meanwhile, who scored when Italy knocked La Roja out of Euro 2016, is offered at 10/1 (11.00) - the same price as his defensive partner Leonardo Bonucci.
