Spain: The big question for Spain is when will the goals come from the No. 9 position. Whether it’s Alvaro Morata, Rodrigo or someone else, there hasn’t been a consistency in the final third since the days of David Villa and Fernanrdo Torres. These team is so good in getting goals from other positions, but it has to be a slight concern that they needed three goals from defenders to beat the Faroe Islands.
Sweden: This is a team at the World Cup that couldn’t consistently score, but the group has eight goals in its last three games and 10 in its last four. They are going to need more than one to beat Spain on the road, but the confidence is there.
Spain vs. Sweden prediction
Rodrigo and Morata score and Spain takes full control of first place.
Pick: Spain 3, Sweden 0
