Spain vs Bosnia Team News

Coach Vicente del Bosque has left the likes of Diego Costa and Santi Cazorla out of the Spain Euro 2016 squad. Experienced midfielder Xavi is no longer part of the Spain national team. Bayern Munich midfielder was surprisingly left out of the provisional squad, but Athletic Bilbao attacker Aritz Aduriz will play at Euro 2016. Spain take on Bosnia in a friendly on Sunday and it has to be noted that the likes of Sergio Ramos, Daniel Carvajal, Koke, Isco, Lucas Vazquez and Saul Niguez all miss the match due to club commitments (Champions League final). David Silva has been struggling with injury and he is unlikely to be risked.

Injured: None

Doubtful: David Silva (96/23)

Suspended: None

The likes of Senad Lulic, Vedad Ibisevic and Ermin Bicakcic all miss the Spain game with injury, but coach Mehmed Bazdarevic has no other selection worries ahead of the trip to St. Gallen. Roma ace Edin Dzeko is likely to lead the line for the Bosnians against Spain. Mensur Mujdza and Sejad Salihovic have been overlooked. There are some new names in the squad: Armin Hodzic, Riad Bajic, Goran Karacic, Kenan Piric, Almir Bekic, Aleksandar Kosoric, Samir Memisevic, Zvonimi Kozulj and Baggio Husidic.

Injured: Senad Lulic (47/2), Vedad Ibisevic (71/23), Ermin Bicakcic (14/2)

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

Quick Facts

  • Bosnia are after their first ever win over Spain
  • Andres Iniesta could play his 108th match for Spain against Bosnia
  • Spain are on a nine-game unbeaten run at the moment
  • Two or three goals were scored in each of Bosnia’s last four games
  • Edin Dzeko has netted 45 goals for the national team to date

Spain vs Bosnia Prediction

Spain will be without a number of first-team regulars in Sunday’s friendly against Bosnia, but regardless of which footballers will be deployed in the starting line-up, la Roja are regarded as favourites to emerge triumphant in the AFG Arena clash. The Bosnians were outclassed by Spain (2-5) in their last meeting with the European champions and, taking everything into account, I am tempted to put my money on Vicente Del Bosque’s troops.
