Spain and France joint-favourites to win UEFA Nations League

Spain beat England, while France collect four points from their opening two matches of the competition

The cream of the crop tends to rise to the top and Spain appear to be over their hiccup at the 2018 World Cup which saw them go out of the last sixteen stage at the hands of Russia.

La Roja claimed a 2-1 victory at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night after coming from a goal down and they are the favourites with several bookmakers to claim a triumph in the Nations League, with Ladbrokes going 7/2 about Luis Enrique’s side.

Enrique has had to contend with several players retiring including Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta and David Silva, although there is still quality in abundance and we saw Marcos Alonso play impressively against England.

France have also begun life sweetly in the Nations League and they’re continuing where they left off in the 2018 World Cup where Les Bleus swept all before them.

After a goalless draw at the Allianz Arena, Didier Deschamps’ side then beat Netherlands 2-1 and it appears they are on course to reach the last four of the competition.

BetVictor go 4/1 about France following up that World Cup triumph with a win in the Nations League, with Belgium potentially the team that can also challenge at the top end.

The Red Devils head to Iceland on Tuesday to contend with a team who lost 6-0 against Switzerland in their last match and Ladbrokes have 5/1 that Roberto Martinez’s side come out on top.
