Australia would not have expected to come into this final game of their World Cup level on points with opponents Spain but after both have been beaten by Chile and Netherlands that’s how things stand. In fact, Australia are actually ahead of Spain on goal difference! Read on for our thoughts on this final group game, as well as betting tips and live odds comparison.

Australia have shown great heart at this World Cup and having entered it as the lowest ranked side they have a chance of finishing above the team that came into it ranked number one by FIFA! The Aussies will be without legend Tim Cahill, the former Everton player having scored one of the goals of this – or any – World Cup in the last game against Netherlands but also collecting a booking that means he is suspended here.

Spain, meanwhile, simply haven’t clicked this time. They adapted their style to incorporate Diego Costa but the striker seemed short of fitness and along with many of his colleagues looked tired and off the pace.

Spain are clear favourites here at odds of just 2/5 with most bookies whilst Australia are 8/1 with Bet365 and the draw is 4/1 with Betfred. Our betting tip here is for one more upset, with the draw a decent shout given Australia are sure to play with more determination as Spain are virtually on the floor.
