Spain are one the top international teams in the world. They have a proud history that is filled with recent successes. Spain are currently in a slight period of transition following an amazing period of dominance which saw them win three major tournaments, Euro 2008, World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012, in a row. They are always ranked in the top 10 of FIFA world rankings and are a genuine contender for every major championship. Their only recent blip occurred in World Cup 2014 where Spain were unexpectedly eliminated in the first round.
Spain have won the European Championships three times, once back in 1964 and, as mentioned above, in 2008 and 2012.

How To Win At Spain Football Team Betting
Spain utilises a fluid, possession style of play which seeks to tire the opposition with skillful and intricate passing played at a high tempo. It is used by Spanish giants Barcelona to great effect.
Spain’s key strength and experience starts at the back. Iker Casillas, their legendary goalkeeper, will most likely give way to his successor David De Gea. Casillas played most of his 166 international caps with Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique protecting him in the centre of defence. The two central defenders have combined 200 international caps between them.
Spain simply do not concede a lot of goals. Spain played nine matches in 2015, winning eight of them and conceding only three goals, two of which came in a 2-0 defeat to the Netherlands. Spain kept seven clean sheets during this spell, which shows their confidence in defence. They are, however, slowing and are suceptible against quicker teams.
Spain have a vastly experienced midfiels, which includes players like Cesc Fabregas, David Silva, Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta, all of whom have over 80 caps each. If the aforementioned players are unavailable, the likes of Bruno, Isco, Pedro and Thiago offer skillful alternatives further emboldening the depth Spain has at its disposal. Weaker teams will struggle with the creativity and skill that comes from Spain’s midfield.
Spain has a lot to prove up front. Diego Costa and Fernando Torres are being pushed hard by a new generation of players who possess sensational talent but lack experience. Alvaro Morata may offer you some value in first goal-scorer betting but look for the odds on David Silva, and even defender Sergio Ramos, who has 10 international goals despite his starting position.
Depending on the strength of Spain’s opponents you may find value in the under 2.5 goals market. Spain have good attackers but, at least on paper, nobody in their lineup that comparest to the old guard of Raul or Morientes.
