Spain vs Czech Republic prediction and betting tips

The hosts returned to winning ways against Switzerland, picking up the first win in three games. La Roja have seen an improvement in their performances this year. They haven't lost a game in 2022. Spain have scored in fifteen consecutive games heading into this fixture. The Red Fury boast of a very good attacking threat, scoring a first-half goal four times in the last five games.

The Czechs have a poor record against their opponents in this fixture. The Nároďák have conceded in each of their last four meetings with Spain. Jaroslav Šilhavý’s team has not won a game against the Euro 2012 winners. And with a more improved Spanish team, that run is expected to continue.

Three out of Spain's last five games have ended with a total of three goals or less. 80% of the last five games involving the Locomotives have ended with a total of three goals or less. Luis Enrique's men are favourites to get a first-half win. Spain usually resorts to possession after an early goal, and this game shouldn't produce more than three goals.

Betting prediction: Spain to win the first half

Odds: 1.80 (-125 American; 4/5 Fractional)
