After neither nations started their tournaments with wins, Spain and Poland look to put three important points on the board when they face off in Seville.
European Championship 2020
Venue: Estadio de La Cartuja
After a goalless Euro 2020 opener vs Sweden, which saw them claim over 85% of the possession, Spain will be out for goals against Poland. Spain had a plethora of chances to score past the Swedes but their finishing let them down every now and then.
Luis Enrique’s defence looks less than solid at times but perhaps Poland shouldn’t pose too much threat. If Spain go on to put away the chances they will create here, they shouldn’t have a problem here.
Poland were shocked 2-1 by Slovakia in their opener and were guilty of not getting the ball up to Robert Lewandowski.
Since Paulo Sousa appointment, Poland haven’t kept many clean sheets so they will need to find a way to get the ball to their star striker more in this game if they’re to outscore the Spanish. Another defeat here would make Poland’s chances of reaching the knockout stages like they did in 2016 almost impossible.
Sergio Busquets is down with an illness and will likely sit out this match.
Poland will be without the suspended Grzegorz Krychowiak for the game against Spain.
Spain’s last five games: WWDWD
Poland’s last five games: WLDDL
Spain are unbeaten in 14 matches on home soil and have kept 11 clean sheets in that time.
Poland’s only victory against Spain came on Spanish soil way back in 1980.
Five of the last seven meetings between these two nations have produced over 2.5 goals.
Three of Spain’s last five matches have featured more than two goals while five of Poland’s last six games have also produced more than two goals. Expect that recent trend to continue here. Bet on the Over 2.5 goals market for 4/5 odds.
