NETHERLANDS - SPAIN
Both teams are not in great shape lately.
Netherlands only got a draw from the home match against Turkey and occupies the 3rd position in the group while Spain is 2nd, 3 points far from Slovakia.
Last match between these teams was during the last World Cup, ended 5-1 for the Oranges.
Netherlands can't count on Van Persie and Robben, both injured, while Spain's line up is filled with new players.
Low rhythm expected for this match, considering April is the most hard month of the season and it is better to preserve energies and avoid injuries. UNDER 3.5.
NETHERLANDS: Cillessen; Janmaat, De Vrij, Martins Indi,
Willems; Blind, Klaassen, Sneijder; Narsingh, Huntelaar, Depay.
SPAIN: De Gea; Carvajal, Bartra, Albiol, Bernat; Cazorla, Fabregas, Mario Suarez; Pedro, Juanmi, Vitolo.
UNDER 2.5 (1.66 Betfair)

ITALY - ENGLAND
Last match between these teams was during the last World Cup, where Italy won 2-1.
From that moment a lot of things have changed: Italy has changed coach, Conte took the place of Prandelli, while England decided to go on with Hodgson.
England had a better recent past than Italy.
Italy is not a great team at moment. There are a lot of young, new players.
England's players are living a good season: Henderson has been decisive for Liverpool till now, Rooney is making miracles in Manchester, Harry Kane scores in any condition.
Italian press is very critique towards the national team and players could feel the pressure.
In our opinion the best choice for a bet is GOAL.
ITALY: Buffon, Ranocchia, Bonucci, Chiellini,
Florenzi, Soriano, Valdifiori, Parolo, Darmian, Eder, Pellè.
ENGLAND: Hart, Walker, Smalling, Jagielka, Gibbs, Delph, Carrick, Henderson, Barkley, Rooney, Kane.
