Albania went top of the group G table on Thursday night as they defeated Liechtenstein 0-2. They are now top of the table with 6 points and they will be preparing to host Spain at home on Sunday night.

Albania continued their good start in the World Cup qualifiers campaign, as they made it 2 wins from 2 on Thursday. P. Jehle’s own goals in the 11th minute and B. Balaj’s winning goal in the 71st minute was enough to take them top of the group G. Now they will fight for a win in this fixture to maintain an excellent record in the group.

Spain played out a 1-1 draw away at Italy on Thursday, they are currently on the second position wth 4 points. Spain are just 2 points behind Albania and on same point with Italy in the 3rd position. Spain will aim for a win in this game to take them to the top of the group.

Albania vs Spain: Prediction

Despite Albania’s excellent form, Spain are still huge favourites in this game. Both teams are in an unbeaten run of form, and have a good scoring form too.

Albania have now won 3 of their last 5 games and drawn 1 while Spain have n 2 of their last 5 games and drawn 1.

Both teams are on 3 game unbeaten run since after the Euro Championship with two wins and 1 draw. They have both kept 2 clean sheets in their last 3 games and scored at least 2 goals in 2 of their last 3 games.

I expect a win from Spain in this one, also I expect Spain to keep a clean sheet
