With their backs against the wall in the race for qualification for Euro 2024, Spain will have the opportunity to make some ground on Group leaders Scotland when they host Group A whipping boys Cyprus at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes (Granada) on Tuesday night. La Roja have been underwhelming so far in a group many pundits had tipped them to cruise through with ease. Instead, it’s Scotland that are the runaway leaders after a flawless 4 wins from their 4 group matches including a 2-0 win over Spain when they met. Spain are still within touching distance of the leaders and will look to pounce on any slip-ups.
Cyprus have been struggling to stay above water in Group A. They are bottom of the group after losing all three of their group games to Scotland, Georgia and Norway. To their credit, they have made some strides in recent years but they are still a few notches off the competitive level of the top teams in Europe. This will certainly be their sternest test and they will need to be at their best if they are to avoid what is likely to be a mauling from a ruthless Spanish team and a packed and intimidating away crowd.
Looking at our Spain v Cyprus predictions, there is only one outcome possible here. Spain are overwhelming favorites against the bottom feeders Cyprus. They will set out to continue piling pressure on the group leaders with a statement win here. With their raucous crowd behind them, we are backing La Roja to out the Cypriots to the sword.

Main tip: Handicap -2 Spain Win
Our Spain vs Cyprus predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Handicap – 2 Spain Win
Spain dug themselves into a hole and they are desperate to get themselves out of. Time and matches are running out as they try to bridge the gap between them and Group A leaders Scotland. They will therefore not be leaving anything to chance including ensuring their goal difference is good enough should that become a factor later on down the line. This is the exact kind of match they need to tick all those boxes. A visit by the punching bags in the group. The omens don’t look good for the visitors here. They have lost by at least 5 goals on each of their four visits here. We don’t expect any upsets here and we are backing Spain to win by at least three or more goals with very decent prices for this option available at 1xBet

Prediction 2: Most Goals 2nd Half
Although Spain will want to get the job done asap, it will not be as easy at first. Cyprus with their 5-4-1 formation will try to make things tight at the back and it will take some going before they get broken down. The home side have also shown a knack for leaving things late as they did with two late Joselu goals in their 3-0 home win over Norway. We expect a tight opening half but as legs get weary in the 2nd half, then the floodgates are bound to inevitably open. As such we feel there is great value in backing the second half to have more goals in this match and you can get fantastic odds for this at Melbet.

Prediction 3: Spain Over 7.5 Corners
We expect Spain to dominate this match from start to finish as is their tradition. With Cyrpus likely to sit deep as they try to save face from soaking bucketload of goals, they are likely to give up a lot of corners in the process. They gave up 8 corners to both Scotland and Norway in their other away matches in this group. Spain ae a tad above those teams when it comes to conceding corners so we pretty much expect that trend to hold. For our final Spain vs Cyrpus prediction, we therefore fancy Spain to have at least 8 corners in this match.
