World Cup 2018 Qualifiers
In another very, very unbalanced game on Saturday, Spain will host Macedonia.
The current group leaders and one of the best teams in the world will face an opponent with 0 points, although their game isn’t just as bad as Liechtenstein’s.
Regardless, we’re expecting to see a Spanish victory – the only question is the dimension of this victory.

Except for a 1-1 away draw against Italy, which can’t really be considered unexpected, Spain had 2 more wins: 2-0 over Albania and 8-0 over Liechtenstein.
Although it might not be clear at the moment, at least from these scorelines, the team is still struggling to adapt to a new style of playing, with wide men (Vitolo, Pedro, or others in the same positions), a lone classic striker (Morata, Aduriz) and less classic midfielders.
Moreover, Iniesta is currently injured and can’t orchestrate their game from midfield anymore – although it can hardly be said that they lack quality there.
On the other hand, Macedonia can brag with a 4-7 goal difference, which means they haven’t lost games heavily so far.
They led Italy 2-1 until the 89th minute, only to lose 2-3 in extra time, and they also lost their first two games against Albania and Israel with the same scoreline: 1-2.
They aren’t a very bad team by any means, but it’s very hard to think that they’ll be able to pose any kind of threat to Spain, especially away from home.
Spain vs Macedonia Betting Tips
That being said, we think that Spain will score at least 3 goals in this game. Most of their players are in great form and will be looking to win convincingly.
We wouldn’t be surprised to see Spain up by a goal or two at halftime, so a great combo bet would be something along the lines of 1/1 and 3+. Morata is our favorite goalscorer of the day, and an over 3,5 bet is another great idea.
Spain Over 3.5 Goals @ 1.83 or 5/6

As every four years, South America is one of the most dynamic regions, with lots of surprises and almost never the same nations finishing on first spots.
