Stats for the weekend…

After the drama and fun of the World Cup, International football returns to our screens this week with… the UEFA Nations League.

Excitement levels don’t seem too high around this new event. The summer of love in Russia feels like a long time ago already.

But the fact is, England are back in action on Saturday night. And with Gareth ‘The Waistcoat’ Southgate very much still in charge and building for The Future, the formbook says we should follow the Three Lions’ standout stats once again this weekend…

England v Spain

UEFA Nations League
Saturday, 7.45pm – Sky Sports

Match odds: England 15/8 (2.88), Draw 21/10 (3.10), Spain 17/10 (2.70)

Those Match Result prices suggest no-one really knows what to expect from the score-line here. With a young England side, taking on a new-look Spain with a new manager and big names like Andre Iniesta now retired from the International stage.

England’s Corners stats don’t discriminate. They’ve been rock-solid reliable for some time, so matter the occasion…

During the summer we had a good few winners backing England on the Corner Handicap against underdog opposition, and in the straight-up Most Corners market when the opponent was deemed of a higher level.

After 5 out of 7 Most Corners results at the World Cup, England’s record for this bet now stands at 27 payouts from their last 30 games

That’s a run that stretches back over two years, many different starting line-ups and a couple of different managers, too.

Key stat:

  • England have won the Most Corners in 9 of their last 10 games at Wembley. Including when they last met Spain in November 2016

The stats make this very clear. England are a team to follow for Most Corners bets. A few bookies seem to be steering clear of this market, or waiting before pricing up, but a handful have got their prices up…

Also available: Most Corners – England @ Evens (2.00) with Skybet, 97/100 (1.97) Marathonbet, 19/20 (1.95) Betway, 5/6 (1.83) William Hill, 4/5 (1.80) BetVictor.
