Spain’s national football team is among the six top favorites to win Euro 2020 at 8.50 odds, looking to reclaim the trophy they lost in 2016. After an iconic decade when the “Furia Roja” won the FIFA World Cup 2010 and two consecutive European Championships (i.e., 2008 and 2012), the Iberians reached the Last-16 in France, where they were eliminated after a 2-0 loss from Italy. The manager Luis Enrique, the last coach to win a Champions League with Barcelona in 2015, aspires to perform a new-look team with the main target to conquer the tournament. Besides the internationally experienced midfielder Sergio Busquets and the integral defender Jordi Alba, all the other Spanish players have fewer than 50 international appearances.

What odds & bets bookies offer for Spain
Spain won Euro 2020 qualifiers Group F, taking 26 points with an unbeaten run consisted of eight wins and two draws. They scored 31 goals, conceding only five, and qualified 1st above 2nd-ranked Sweden. They won 3-0 Sweden at Madrid, dropping out two points at Solna against Scandinavians (i.e., 1-1 draw). Alvaro Morata, Sergio Ramos, and Rodrigo scored four goals each, but from these top scorers, only Juventus’ prolific striker is included in the 24-men squad.
✔️ Our prediction: Spain’s appearance at Euro 2020 was shocking, but Luis Enrique made his squad’s selection choosing among the most talent-loaded players with improved fitness. Spain is the ultimate favorite to beat Sweden at Matchday 1 at 1.40 odds and Slovakia at Matchday 3 at 1.20 odds. If the Spaniards secure these six points, they probably seek a draw against Poland at Matchday 2 to reach seven points. The selection based on that point-picking pays 3.25 odds, having realistic chances to confirm and considerable betting value. In conclusion, reading the latest odds is easy to check that the Iberians’ chances to qualify from group stages are incredibly high.
Spain Euro 2020/2021 Lineup & Tactics
We released our predictions about Spain’s probable path at Euro 2020. It’s clear that the “Furia Roja” is one of the top favorites based on the latest odds. Although, Enrique’s players should prove it in the field. Over the last twelve months, they found obstacles in their route. Recently, national teams, such as Switzerland and Greece, far from the Spaniards’ quality, got a 1-1 draw for Nations League and World Cup 2022 qualifiers, respectively. Besides the stellar win over Germany, we shouldn’t forget the last October’s shocking 1-0 defeat at Ukraine for National League’s group stage. Read our Spain Euro 2020 preview and discover Luis Enrique’s detailed tactics, the probable lineup, and the squad list.
The Asturian tactician announced a 24-men squad for the Euro 2020 tournament without the veteran Sergio Ramos among his selections. The iconic defender has been replaced by Manchester City’s Aymeric Laporte, who switched his nationality from France to Spain. However, Ramos isn’t only Spain’s influential player not being at the latest squad. The “Furia Roja” will compete for an elite tournament for the first time in history without any player from Real Madrid. You can check the list below with Spain’s Euro 2020 squad.
|GK||David de Gea||30||45||0||Manchester United|
|GK||Unai Simon||24||7||0||Athletic Bilbao|
|GK||Robert Sanchez||23||0||0||Brighton & Hove Albion|
|DF||Eric Garcia||20||8||0||Manchester City|
|DF||Diego Llorente||27||8||0||Leeds United|
|DF||Aymeric Laporte||27||1||0||Manchester City|
|MF||Dani Olmo||23||11||3||RB Leipzig|
|MF||Marcos Llorente||26||5||0||Atletico Madrid|
|FW||Mikel Oyarzabal||24||13||4||Real Sociedad|
|FW||Ferran Torres||21||11||6||Manchester City|
|FW||Adama Traore||25||5||0||Wolverhampton Wanderers|
|FW||Pablo Sarabia||29||4||1||Paris Saint-Germain|
The Key Players & Tactics
While Luis Enrique dropped out some experienced players from the squad completely, the several first call-ups make Spain unpredictable. Barcelona’s duo, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets, are the most experienced players in the 24-men squad for Euro 2020, but the time on the field will probably be more limited. The main trouble for the Asturian manager is the goalie position. Either De Gea or Simon are in great form, while Brighton’s Sanchez hasn’t even one international cap.
David de Gea will probably be the starter trying to improve Spain’s defensive line. Laporte may get a speedy call for the lineup as a central defender, while Rodri and Pedri will be the key players in midfield. Choosing a 4-3-3 formation, the Spanish manager will have a leader in the offensive line and a key man to support the superstar Alvaro Morata. Manchester City’s Ferran Torres scored a hat-trick against Germany in November 2020, and he shined in the Champions League for the English team.
The Probable Lineup
The Spanish tactician has selected 24 players, rather than the maximum number of 26 allowed. That means he probably wants a tight squad dedicated to his ideas. De Gea will be the starting goalie in his lineup, with Azpilicueta, Pau Torres, Laporte and Gaya having the most chances to construct the Spanish defense. The potential eleven will have a different background than the team that Russia eliminated at the World Cup 2018 at Last-16. For example, effective players like Pique and David Silva retired from the national team.
The passing game skills and the build-up from the defenders are Enrique’s footprints that determine his tactics. So, Pedri, Rodri, and Koke have the demanding role of dominating the ball and feeding the offensive line. Alvaro Morata and Ferran Torres will probably have the support of Oyarzabal or Dani Olmo on the left side of the field. Our analysis shows top-rated national team’s units like Kepa, Sergi Roberto, Reguilon, Ceballos, Aspas, Canales, Rodrigo Moreno, Navas, Carvajal, and Bellerin will miss out.
Luis Enrique was announced as the Spanish national team’s coach in July 2018, but one year later left his place due to personal reasons. However, the 51-years-old manager was back in his seat on November 19, with his assistant Roberto Moreno leading Spain through Euro 2020 qualifiers. He had great spells at Real Madrid and Barcelona as a player, completing more than 350 appearances with the Spanish giants.
Enrique guided the Catalan side to the 2015’s treble showing excellent skills to handle elite tournaments as a manager. During his first spell at the Spanish national football team, he had an 80% winning ratio with eight wins for ten matches in charge. After hir return, he guided the “Furia Roja” to five wins from eleven matches before June’s warm-up friendlies for the Euro 2020 tournament, trying to optimize his favorite 4-3-3 formation.
