SPA vs SWE Dream11 : Spain strike to become the first qualifying team from the group today when they take on second placed Sweden
Widely touted to assure themselves of qualification from Group F into Euro 2020 in their previous encounter, Spain ended up ruing the final result. The side were restricted to a 1-1 draw by Norway in their foregone encounter, a match which saw them miss out on three vital points which increased the ramifications taking birth from today’s clash for them.
What emerged as a bigger consequence from their draw was not just the fact that they ended up failing to defeat a Norwegian side which has failed to scramble together two meaningful performances till now but the lacklustre attacking display doled out by Spain. It was a display reminiscent of the performances which shunted them out of the world cup at an early stage, a performance the side will be looking to overhaul come today.
And in Sweden, Spain will be well aware that they are up against a side who have shown they are more than just pushovers in the group. Their 4-0 routing of Matla in the bygone fixture was vindictive of the second place Sweden find themselves in at the moment, just 5 points behind Spain ahead of today’s upcoming encounter. They’ll head out in today’s tie looking to further reduce the deficit between themselves a Spain, a match where the side promise to make thing jittery for a far from complete Spain side.
Spain on the other hand know that although they are in an extremely healthy position at the moment, sitting atop of Group F, it won’t take much time for them to wane and waver if things continue in the same manner. With a win today asserting them of qualification from the group, they’ll be looking to ingrain in place a perfect showing and make amends for their lopsided showing in the last fixture.

SPA vs SWE Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Finland’s Robin Olsen becomes our pick for this encounter. For all of Spain’s aberration up the park in the previous encounter, the side are up against a Sweden side which can collapse and lose its way in defence when under pressure, something Spain will be looking to capitalise on. This makes Olsen a good pick, someone who should pull off some good saves and get us points.
SPA vs SWE Dream11 Defenders
With just four goals conceded in the 7 encounters they have played in the group till now, if any side are going to be pulling off a cleansheet, it’s going to be Spain today. The side have improved defensively, getting in new and fresh names to bolster up the side’s backline and its worked for them as well, something the side will be looking to resonate come this clash as well.
It’s this discourse which sees us opt for Diego Llorente and rightback Dani Carvajal from the side while we have the one pick coming in from Sweden as well in the form of
SPA vs SWE Dream11 Midfielders
One thing which looks assured to come from this clash is goals. Both the sides have put on some good displays up the park in their recent encounters, galloping their way towards 35 goals in the 14 matches they have played in between them and neither will be looking to change its approach comes this clash either.
It’s a scenario which sees us opt for all the attacking picks in this docket, beginning with Spain’s Rodrio Hernandez, someone who’ll be asked to hold fort in the CDM position as well as transition the ball from defence to attack. Fabian Ruiz comes in as well along with Arsenal’s Dani Ceballos while from Spain we have the two picks come in the form of Emil Forsberg and Albin Ekdal.
SPA vs SWE Dream11 Strikers
The one striker apiece is picked up by us from either side with Spain’s Rodrigo Moreno being the first name we have coming in here. The side have relied massively on the striker to convert their well worded and astute moves into goals and he’s reposed the faith entrusted in him as well with some good showings.
Robin Quaison has carried out a role akin to Moreno for Sweden and if anybody is going to score form the side, he looks the likeliest player to do so, seeing him become our final pick for this encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We’ll be making Moreno our captain for this fixture while Ruiz is becoming the vice-captain.
