Why you should back Spain

Dani Olmo recorded one goal in four matches for the Spaniards during the 2022 World Cup and already has matched that total in this competition. The 24-year-old midfielder opened the scoring for Spain in their meeting with Norway, converting in the 13th minute of the victory. It was the sixth tally in 29 matches with the national team for Olmo, who has recorded two goals and four assists over 15 contests for RB Leipzig of the German Bundesliga this season.

Striker Alvaro Morata led Spain with three tallies in the World Cup but was unable to convert against the Norwegians. His replacement in that match produced in a big way, however, as forward Joselu scored in the 84th and 85th minutes to create breathing room for the Spaniards. The 33-year-old Joselu leads Espanyol of La Liga this campaign with 12 goals in 23 matches. 

Why you should back Scotland

Scott McTominay provided heroics similar to Joselu’s for the Scottish in their victory over Cyprus. The 26-year-old midfielder entered the match as a substitute in the second half and turned a slim lead into a comfortable one with a pair of late goals. McTominay recorded just one goal in his previous 37 contests with the national team.

Midfielder John McGinn also scored against Cyprus, giving him a goal in four of his last six outings with Scotland. The 28-year-old has registered 16 goals and six assists over his past 30 games for the national team after failing to notch any in his first 23 matches. Scotland also hopes to receive production from striker Lyndon Dykes, who owns a share of the team lead with six goals for Queens Park Rangers of the EFL Championship this season.
