FRA vs SPA Dream11 Hockey Preview and Prediction
France will be up against Spain in the next header of the Olympic Qualifiers. The European neighbours will test each other when they take on each other on Saturday. The odds may be slightly in favour of Spain as they are coming fresh off winning a silver medal at EuroHockey Championships. They have also won one bronze and three silver medals over 17 appearances at Olympics. For France, however, fourth spot has been their highest ever finish. Spain have made it to the Olympics every time since 1956 while France was a part of it in 1972 for the last time.

It will be worth watching if France makes it to the Olympics or not. But, they certainly face an uphill task against Spain where beating them would help them in achieving their maiden spot since 1972. Both the teams have already met once in this tournament, but the match ended in a draw.
