Description: SPA Vs UKR Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Spain left foraging for their opening win in the tournament after staving off a defeat against Germany
They looked set to be headed for defeat as Germany lead for a large part of fixture before Spain somehow managed to scramble their way to a goal in the tournament. It saw the side keep its 12 match unbeaten spin in the footballing arena alive, one it will be looking to further extend come today.
For Spain, the last year has been a crucial period. After being dumped out of the 2018-19 edition of the UEFA Nations League after being defeated by Croatia, the side knew it have colossal issues, ones which engulfed the side in a calamitous period on the global stage.
And the side has managed to fend off fairly well for itself proceeding that horrendous performance. Breezing their way into next year’s Euro, the side is now looking to leave its mark on the UEFA Nations League and continue on the uptick they have been on since the foregone edition of the showpiece competition.
SPA Vs UKR Dream11 Probable Winner
Topping their Euro qualifying group, Ukraine brought their stellar form into the ongoing edition of the UEFA Nations League. Unbeaten in their last 11 outings, the side finds itself occupying top spot of Group 4 after defeating Switzerland 2-1.
It was a much needed result in a group which will truly test Ukraine to every last bit of resolve they have. And the side’s first major test awaits today but the country squaring off against a Spanish side out scouring for its opening win.
This should be a fixture which swings in Spain’s favour with Ukraine’s tendencies to concede and go off to sleep at crucial junctures giving the home side the full points.

Dream 11 Picks
While the attack was massively hailed given the two goals Ukraine strung together, the defensive work instilled by the side on the day didn’t go unnoticed. And spearheading the side’s resilient performance was shot stopper Andriy Pyatov who withstood an onslaught of shots sent down his way to see him hold down a spot in our side.
Headed for defeat against Germany, Spain had Jose Gaya to thank for their 1-1 draw. He was at the right place at the right time, latching onto a Rodrigo header to convert from close range for his side.
Coming in next to him will be Sergio Ramos. The CB was pristine as ever, helping keep his side in the match right till the culminating stages with the defender clobbering down on Germany’s attacking plays.
We have Dani Carvajal wrap up the trio of picks from the club given his attacking affinity, one which sees him persistently involve himself in the side’s attacking plays.
Thiago Alacantra once again dished out a reminder of why Liverpool should snag him up at the earliest plausible. The midfielder was once again the enforcer in midfield with his ability to turnover possession from attack to defence seeing Spain transition the ball from defence to attack with ease.
Fabian Ruiz will be assisting him for the clash owing to his penchant for coming up with rousing shots, ones which always make him a threat infront of goal. We also have Ferran Torres be imbued in our side after his well versed showing against Germany reposed the faith Manchester City have earmarked in him.
Ukraine meanwhile see Manchester City man Oleksandr Zinchenko become our first pick after he scored for the side the last time around. He’s joined up by Yevhen Konoplyanka with the two forming a daunting partnership, one capable of traversing past the sternest of defences.
His header was converted for Spain’s goal against Germany to see striker Rodrigo Merino be the first name to grace the land of our side. Ukraine elsewhere see West Ham player Andriy Yarmolenko be our pick for the day after his goal against Switzerland.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His assist the last time around see Moreno be inculcated in our side as the day’s captain while Ramos is the vice-captain.
