This Saturday, three points are vital for Spain and Poland after both sides failed to win their opening EURO 2020 (2021) fixtures.
SPAIN VS POLAND BETTING
First game jitters won’t be an excuse this time around when goal-shy Spain welcome a wounded Polish national side to the La Cartuja Stadium in Seville for the second round of Group E fixtures.
A 0-0 stalemate in their first game last Monday brought to bear Spain’s need for an attacking threat in front of goal – an issue that their upcoming opponents won’t have, with superstar Robert Lewandowski leading the line.
While they were unable to find the back of the net, Luis Enrique’s side boasted a staggering 86% of the possession against Sweden, a statistic likely to be replicated this Saturday against Poland. La Furia Roja were also able to conjure up several fantastic opportunities in front of goal, proving that a sprinkle of quality could quickly transform their fortunes.
Things couldn’t have gone much worse for Poland during their opening fixture of the EURO 2020 (2021) tournament.
The Eagles were able to level the score (1-1) early in the second half after an own goal by goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny left Poland trailing at the break. Unfortunately for Paulo Sousa’s side, things quickly took a turn for the worse.
Lokomotiv Moscow’s Grzegorz Krychowiak became the first player in the tournament to receive his marching orders after receiving a red card for a late challenge on Jakub Hromada. Seven minutes later, Milan Skriniar put his side 2-1 up, allowing the Slovakians to easily soak up the pressure for the remainder of the game and take all three points on offer.
This time around, Poland face a different beast entirely. And, although Spain haven’t gotten off to the best of starts (0-0 vs Sweden), The Eagles won’t want to be handing them any favours this Saturday.
