Wales are back in competitive action next week when they travel to Dublin, but first, they have a glamour friendly against a Spanish side that seems to have gotten their mojo back with their new manager, Luis Enrique. Can the Spaniards earn a second win on British soil in two months, or will Wales cause an unlikely upset?
Spain would take on England in Seville next week in the reverse fixture of their Euro Nations League, so they could experiment with their line up. Wales, on the other hand, would be looking to build on their Euro Nations League start after winning 1 and losing 2-0 to Denmark in their last game. Ryan Giggs’ men face the Republic of Ireland in their next Euro League game so a positive result here would give them a confidence boost.
Spain struggled in Russia, but Enrique seems to have what it takes to take them back to their glory days as they have started his reign brightly.
They have won their two Euro Nations League games against England and Croatia, scoring 8 goals against opponents of this calibre, so they shouldn’t have a big problem seeing off this Welsh side.
These two sides last met in the qualifiers for the 1986 World Cup, with each side claiming a 3-0 home win across those two encounters.
