Our prediction for this Euro 2016 match:
After a 5 game victory streak Spain qualified themselves as the number 1 in group C with 24 points out of 9 games. The Spanish football team showed to be the strongest and most consistent in the group. Ukraine on the other hand is currently placed 3th with the same amount of points as Slovakia. A victory over Spain and a mis step by Slovakia would qualify Ukraine directly for EURO 2016. Both Ukraine and Spain managed to win their last game in the qualification. Since Spain already qualified directly to EURO 2016 we expect them to play with a B team. The Spanish B team is still too strong for Ukraine which can only hope for a miracle in order to qualify directly to the group stage.
Highlighted Player (David Silva):
David Silva is a product of Valencia’s youth system. Born on 8 January, 1986, the highly rated footballer made his debut in the 2004/2005 campaign and went on to score a total of 21 goals for the Estadio de Mestalla outfit. In 2010, the Spanish midfielder signed a deal with Premier League side Manchester City and he has already won two domestic championships with the free-spending club.
In the 2015/2016 season David Silva and Co. faced Real Madrid in the Champions League semis, but the Spanish giants proved to be a big catch for the Citizens in the two-legged tie. Silva plays as an attacking midfielder, but he is capable of playing as winger or a second striker as well.
He is well known for his possession-retaining qualities and, as a result, he got the nicknames “Merlin” and “El Mago”. David Silva won the 2014 FIFA World Cup trophy with Spain, while winning Euro 2008 and Euro 2012 with La Roja as well.
