World Champions Spain come in to Euro 2012 as favourites to win the tournament, and of course, if they are to do so then some of the their front players must really step up to the plate, and with so much firepower on show, there are plenty of suitors to be Spain’s Top Goalscorer.

This is one of the most interesting markets on offer at Euro 2012, simply because the two men heading it might not be there.

David Villa (5/2, all odds with Bet Victor) is the outright favourite, but he hasn’t played since breaking a leg playing for Barcelona in December, and even if Spain’s all-time record goalscorer has recovered enough to take his place in the squad for the finals there surely must be a question mark over his match fitness.

There have been question marks over Fernando Torres (9/2) for over a year but he finds himself second in the running despite a less than stellar season and hardly prolific goalscoring form for Chelsea. Like Villa, but for differing reasons, it is unclear whether he’ll make the squad.

And so without the men who scored the goals which took them to the World and European crowns in the last four years, just who do Spain turn to in Poland and the Ukraine? Well, these lot.

Fernando Llorente (9/2), Roberto Soldado (9/2) and Alvaro Negredo (10/1) have all found the net with increasing regularity in Spain, and given that all three play for three of the ‘lesser lights’ on the European stage – Athletic Bilbao, Valencia and Sevilla respectively – then the trio could be heading into the tournament looking to score the goals which will earn a big move.

There are goals throughout the Spanish squad though, with Cesc Fabregas (10/1), David Silva (10/1), Juan Mata (16/1) and Barcelona’s Pedro (33/1 and a great each-way shot) all capable of getting on the end of the flowing moves that the tournament favourites are sure to produce.

Perhaps Andres Iniesta (25/1) will once again score the winning goal in a final like he did in 2010.

What is clear is that he’ll have some competition to do so.
