After showing spirit and resilience to earn a hard-fought point in stoppage-time against Germany on Thursday, Spain take on Ukraine this Sunday. Luis Enrique will be expecting a more clinical display from his side in their next Nations League group game, against the Group 4 leaders.

Ukraine were 2-1 winners against Switzerland in their first group fixture on Thursday, but had Manchester City midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko to thank.

He scored his fourth international goal – three in his last five appearances – as they edged past Vladimir Petkovic's men in Lviv. How will they fare against better opposition here though? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Spain vs Ukraine Betting Tips

Germany players immediately raised their hands and looked towards the match officials, almost in synchronised fashion, as Jose Gaya netted his first senior goal in added time. They waved away their complaints, Spain had equalised and snatched a point from a game they could have easily lost in the first-half.

Had David de Gea's dwindling Manchester United form creeped into his game, it would have been over by half-time. Thankfully though, the 29-year-old was alert from minute one and arguably their best player with seven saves.

Rodrigo came close twice, Ferran Torres was dangerous and Thiago Alcantara the typical metronome creating chances in central midfield. Watch to see what alterations Enrique makes here after two games in four days – Barcelona teenager Ansu Fati and Villarreal forward Gerard Moreno could start.

How will Ukraine's backline cope against that? Zinchenko plays in midfield for them and alongside Atalanta's Ruslan Malinovsyi and Andriy Yarmolenko, they possess threats too.

Spain vs Ukraine Correct Score Predictions

In five previous H2H meetings, Spain remain unbeaten (four wins, one draw) against Ukraine and I'd be surprised if that didn't continue here.

Andriy Shevchenko's men did well to stifle Switzerland en route to victory on Thursday, but expecting another one is a step too far. Spain have enough at Enrique's disposal across all positions to prevail, as evidenced by Gaya's late equaliser earlier this week.
