Albania v Spain Prediction, Tips and Odds: La Roja to overcome Asani threat

With top spot in a tough Group B assured, Spain can look to ring the changes when they take on Albania in their final group match in Dusseldorf on Monday night.

La Roja came into this tournament as dark horses but have quickly emerged as one of the favourites to win Euro 2024 after two impressive performances.

Beating Croatia 3-0 in their opening match, Spain managed to edge out Italy 1-0 in a heavyweight tussle last time out.

Even if Luis de la Fuente does make wholesale changes, La Roja should still have enough quality to overcome an Albania side that have given a good account of themselves in Germany this summer.

Albania v Spain betting tips and predictions

Spain to win and both teams to score - 9/4

Spain have been arguably the most impressive of the big hitters at this summer’s tournament, especially with their emphatic 3-0 victory over Croatia in Berlin in their opening game.

Having battled past the Azzurri, Spain are sitting pretty on six points and only a heavy defeat to Albania and Italy to crushed Croatia would see La Roja denied top spot in the group.

Spain’s defence has not been breached in the tournament so far, but with De la Fuente expected to make a number of changes to give his first-team a well-deserved break, there could be some organisational challenges at the back for Albania to exploit.

The Albanians were expected to be the whipping boys in this tough group but they have held their own against Italy and Croatia.

Scoring three goals across their two games of the competition so far, Albania look capable of getting on the scoresheet again on Monday night at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Dusseldorf.

With a fearless approach, Albania will throw all they have at this Spanish side and, while they might not be able to overcome La Roja, they are a good price to get on the scoresheet in a Spain victory at 9/4.

Jasir Asani to score at any time - 9/2

A player who was late on the scene with the Albanian national side is the North Macedonia-born Jasir Asani.

The right-winger, currently plying his trade in the South Korean top-flight at Gwangju FC, has the ability to score spectacular goals with his piledriver of a left foot.

Cutting in from that right channel, defenders know what to expect, but stopping Asani is another matter.

With four goals in his 16 international appearances so far, the 29-year-old is good value to find the back of the net once again for the Red and Blacks at 9/2.

Mario Mitaj to be booked - 9/4

No player picked up more cards than Mario Mitaj during Albania’s qualifying campaign, with he and others topping the booking stats with two yellows.

Mitaj has managed to stay off the referee’s radar at Euro 2024 so far, meaning should he get a yellow card on Monday, it would not rule him out of playing in the last-16 should Albania manage to get there.

With that in mind, it should free the 20-year-old defender Mitaj to be a bit more aggressive in the tackle than others in the side who find themselves treading a suspension tightrope for this game.

Mitaj to pick up his first booking for this major competition looks to be good value at 9/4.
