Estadio Olímpico de la Cartuja, Sevilla, Spain.
Both teams started the Euro without wins. The Spaniards have failed to break the Swedish defence, while the Poles have lost to the Slovaks. Both teams are desperate for points, and La Roja are heavily favoured to win this game. But the Spaniards also played a similar game against the Swedes, and we all know how that turned out.
Spain: 17 shots on target and 0 goals
Against Sweden, Spain had the ball 75% of the game’s time. La Furia Roja took 17 shots towards goal and five into the box, but the Iberians were unable to score as they drew 0-0 with the Swedish. On the one hand, it can be said that Luis Enrique’s side has performance problems. On the other hand, it is unlikely that the Spaniards will leave the field without scoring for the second game in a row with such activity. Recall that in June 2021, the Spanish team had already played a 0-0 draw with the Portuguese. After the drought in the match against the geographical neighbours, Enrique’s team broke through in the match against Lithuania. La Roja thrashed them 4-0.
Poland: A poor start
It cannot be said that the Poles deserved to lose against Slovakia. The Eagles outplayed their opponents in terms of ball possession, shooting more towards goal and hitting the bar. However, they lost, spending the last 30 minutes with ten men. Krychowiak, one of the leaders of Poland’s current squad, was sent off for a second yellow card. Now Krychowiak will not be able to help his national team against the Spaniards. Apart from the Spaniards, Poland’s third leg is also up against the Swedes and there’s little doubt that the West Slavs will make it through to the Euro 2020 play-offs.
Expert Betting Tips
Yes, Spain are stronger than Poland, but the Eagles also have problems with their squad. Krychowiak is suspended, Piatek and Milik are injured, and it looks like Swiderski will help Lewandowski. Let’s not forget the fact that the Spanish team have not conceded for 290 minutes, and there is a lot of evidence to suggest they won’t concede in the next 90 minutes of the game either. We believe that the Spaniards will come through on Saturday just like they did in their recent match against Lithuania. Here are some of our betting suggestions: Handicap 1 (-1.5) for 2.09, Individual Total 1 Over (2.5) for 2.56, W1 to nil for 2.04.
