The hosts have been in extraordinary scoring form at home and our tipster is backing them to get among the goals again in this World Cup qualifier

Spain begin their World Cup qualifying campaign on Thursday evening by welcoming Greece to the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes in Granada.

Luis Enrique's side are the clear favourites to qualify top of Group B and they will fancy their chances against a Greek outfit who have tumbled down the FIFA world rankings in recent years.

Spain vs Greece Latest Odds

La Roja have never lost a home World Cup qualifier, an incredible statistic which bet365 are expecting to be maintained on Thursday evening.

The hosts can be backed at 1/7 (1.14) to claim three points, while the visitors are priced at 16/1 (17.00) and the draw at 7/1 (8.00).

Spain vs Greece Team News

The 2010 World Cup winners have some new faces in the squad, with Barcelona teenager Pedri amongst those hopeful of making his debut. Sporting's Pedro Porro is the only recognised right-back in the squad and is likely to be awarded his first cap as well.

Greece are without Norwich City left-back Dimitris Giannoulis, who suffered a head injury in the Canaries' last game, while AZ Alkmaar defender Pantelis Hatzidiakos is also out injured.

Spain vs Greece Preview

While La Roja's recent record on the road has been patchy, on home soil they remain incredibly impressive with nine consecutive wins in all competitions.

Their last six home victories have seen them net 33 times and they should be able to comfortably get the better of their lower-ranked opponents.

Although Greece have been solid in recent months, that solidity has been against extremely modest opposition such as Cyprus, Slovenia, Kosovo, and Moldova.

Italy beat the Blue and White home and away with little fuss in Euro 2020 qualifying while Austria recorded a 2-1 friendly win over them in October, and there is little to make us think they will cause any problems to a Spain side whose last home match saw them destroy Germany 6-0. 

Spain vs Greece Tips and Predictions

The hosts are priced at 8/11 (1.72) to score in both halves with bet365, which looks like an unmissable selection given their strong scoring form.
