A Latino derby between Spain and Colombia will take place at a neutral venue in London. West Ham’s London Stadium hosts these two nations which are connected in many ways, and one of them is having excellent footballers. Both come into Friday’s event with ambitions to win despite this being a friendly event. The recent form of these two has been fantastic, which is the reason for high confidence.

Spain vs. Colombia Preview

Spain 

Eight wins in a row are clear proof of Spain’s excellent form. This streak started right after the loss to Scotland in the EURO 2024 qualifiers, with the Red Fury instantly bouncing back with a UEFA Nations League trophy. 

They eliminated Italy in the semis, before beating Croatia in the finals, and from that moment on, Spain began to roll. Beating Georgia on the road, 1-7, and Cyprus at home, 6-0, indicated the rise of the form, and wins over Scotland, Norway, Cyprus, and Georgia propelled the team to first place in the group stage of the qualifiers. 

The team will be a bit weaker than usual because both Gavi and Pedri won’t play. These two are the motor of the unit. With this duo, Spain will be the top contender for winning the title. 

Colombia

Believe it or not, Colombia hasn’t lost in the last 19 matches, an impressive streak. This row started in March 2022, but we need to say that Caffeteros missed the World Cup in Qatar. It was one of the bigger surprises in the South American zone of the qualifiers.

However, Nestor Lorenzo’s unit learned from that lesson and is now without a loss after six rounds of the World Cup qualifiers. Three wins over Venezuela, Brazil, and Paraguay and three draws vs. Chile, Uruguay, and Ecuador are their results so far. 

Counting in the friendly international events, Colombia has four straight victories, two of them with clean sheets. They are extremely defensive-minded, and overall, in six World Cup qualifying matches, we’ve seen nine goals in total.

Spain vs Colombia Head to Head 

There were two friendly international games over the last 15 years. One in 2017, when two sides played 2-2, and the other in 2011, when Spain ended up on the winning side, 1-0. 

Spain vs. Colombia Predictions

Spain will probably send out a modified team and leave out some of the biggest stars on the bench, or at least limit their time in the action. As for Colombia, we expect them to be defensive-minded regardless of the lineup. They are playing conservative and rigid football, and they won’t hesitate to use such an approach in London, therefore, under 2.5 hits is the best pick here. 

Our verdict: Under 2.5 goals
