International Friendly Match
Date: Wednesday, 7th July 2017
Kick off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Neuva Condomia, Murcia, Spain.
Spain and Colombia will meet in this international friendly in the south of Spain. The weather is set to be stifling but this shouldn’t matter much to both of these nations.
The Spanish team are coming into this game on good form, in their most recent game back in March, they beat France away 2-0. They have remained unbeaten for 11 months over six games. The last time they played at home they easily overcame Israel by 4-1.
Colombia come here after getting two vital wins in their South American World Cup qualifying group, which would have boosted confidence. Those wins came against Ecuador and Bolivia. They have lost 2 games in the last year though those were against Brazil and Argentina and were expected.
Spain look set to be taking the friendly games seriously and the likes of Andreas Iniesta, Sergio Ramos and Sergio Busquets look all set to play some time in this fixture.

Spain vs Colombia: Prediction
With their form it’s very difficult not to see a home victory here and we also expect to see goals. Some Spanish players will be tired after a grueling season but they have a coach that is working wonders with the players. We can put all of out belief in this Spanish squad.
