To kick off at this coming Saturday is the match between Spain and Poland at Estadio de La Cartuja for a match in the 2nd round of the Euro group stages. Spain enter the Euro 2020 as number 6 in the FIFA world ranking, thus signifying the gap between these teams as Poland come here with a ranking of number 21.
Heading into their opening match at the tournament Spain were highly expected to win their group. Spain had few problems taking a highly anticipated 1st place in the group stages and they are expected to go deep at the Euro 2020. It put a spanner in the works though when not managing to penetrate the Swedish defence in the first round.
Whilst outsiders to top their group Poland still seem to have a decent opportunity to qualify for the knock out stages. Booking a place at the Euros perhaps proved a little more exciting than Poland dreamed but they proved to have enough quality for a 1st place in the group. Losing out against Slovakia could prove very costly for Poland though.

Spain embarked on their Euro 2020 campaign with splendid stats in their last 10 internationals. Spain hit the target 2.9 times on average per game, scoring 29 goals along the way. They conceded a total of 4 goals, an average of 0.4 per game, as they held on for a clean sheet in 6 of those matches.

Missing out on three points in their upcoming match at the tournament will be next to scandalous for Spain. With hopefully more tough matches coming up, securing a win here is essential for Spain.
Poland came into their opening match with much optimism, but left the pitch greatly disappointed. All is not lost but reaching the next round looks like a seriously tough challenge now.

Looking at the market for a goalscorer, it would seem a good idea to side with Ferran Torres. The Spain international has found the back of the net 5 times in their last 6 matches. Robert Lewandowski arrives at the Euro 2020 very keen to continue the momentum he has build up in his last 6 internationals for Poland. Scoring 3 goals in half a dozen matches is a decent output.
