Spain vs Switzerland preview

La Roja's competitive matches have generally been tight low-scoring affairs with five of their last six matches seeing under 2.5 goals.

On their day, Spain are capable of scoring goals yet on the whole they tend to keep things tight scoring between one and two goals a game.

The last time they scored more than two goals in a competitive fixture was a 4-0 win over Georgia a year ago, with the last nine competitive matches seeing them score two goals or less.

This will be the seventh meeting between these nations in the last 12 years and all the previous meetings have seen under 2.5 goals.

Spain vs Switzerland tips and predictions

Under 2.5 goals is priced at 17/20 (1.85) which looks like an excellent option for Saturday night's match in Zaragoza.
