SPAIN begin the defence of their crown today and should start with three points.
Vicente del Bosque’s men are a best 1-2 at the likes of Ladbrokes to sink the Czech Republic despite arriving in France with no proven international strikers.
The wily manager chose to leave out Fernando Torres and Diego Costa so the onus will be on Alvaro Morata to lead the line and be well supported by midfielders such as Nolito, Andres Iniesta, David Silva and Cesc Fabregas.
Morata made his mark in the Champions League this season and is 11-8 at bet365 to score and 4-1 to net first.
The claims of Sergio Ramos can’t be ignored as he’s hit the target in some big games and the defender is 9-1 to net.
The Czechs didn’t keep a single clean sheet in qualifying and at the other end are unlikely to hurt the likes of Ramos, Juanfran, Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba.
David de Gea looks likely to keep his place after claiming his innocence over sex-scandal allegations but Iker Casillas is an able deputy if the Man United man is dumped.
They won each of their last eight qualifiers without conceding and 18 of their last 20 competitive wins have come with clean sheets.
