Former World and European champions, Spain, continue their assault towards the Euro 2016 final's in France next summer when they travel to Macedonia. 

The Spainish top Group C on goal difference ahead of Slovakia, with both sides level on 18 points, three ahead of Ukraine. 

Jordi Alba and Andres Iniesta netted as Spain beat Slovakia 2-0 on Saturday, avenging their shock 2-1 defeat from last October. 

The 2010 World Cup winners are now on course to top the group with three games remaining and should make light work of Macedonia, who have won just one of their seven games. 

With no shortage of attacking threats for Spain, the first goalscorer market is full of options for any interested punters. 

Goalscorer Second Chance

The visitors have netted 17 goals in their seven games so far in qualifying, with Manchester City midfielder David Silva netting three goals in six games.

The playmaker has enjoyed a superb start to the season, helping the Citizens to top of the Premier League table with four wins from four games. 

Pulling the strings during Saturday's win over Slovakia, Silva is always a threat going forward and could be worth considering in the first goalscorer market. 

Valencia forward Paco Alcacer has four goals in seven games for Spain, meanwhile, but the striker could only appear from the bench on Saturday.

Chelsea forward Diego Costa was instead preferred up front but the former Atletico Madrid man has just one goal from eight international appearances so far. 

Another Chelsea star, Pedro, also started at the weekend and the former Barcelona man has 16 goals in 52 games for Spain.
