Match Preview

The Spanish national team will face Slovakia on matchday 3 of Group E of the 2020 European Cup, at the Estadio de La Cartuja, Wednesday (23/6). La Furia Roja needs a win to ensure they qualify for the last 16 without having to look at the results of the other groups.

Now, SpanishThey is in third place in the standings with two points from two matches. Meanwhile, Slovakia is one place better after collecting three points.

Therefore, a victory will make Spain seal a ticket to the round of 16. Meanwhile, a draw does not guarantee Spain will qualify. Moreover, defeat will make Alvaro Morata and his friends lift their suitcases.

So far, Spain is mighty when it meets Slovakia. Spain reaped four wins, one loss, and one draw in the last six meetings. In fact, from the last three duels, Spain scored 11 goals and conceded only two goals.

However, Slovakia also can not be underestimated. Milan Skriniar and friends display a solid game in every line.

Now, the homework for Spain is to dismantle the defense of Slovakia which is known to be strong. The task is also an opportunity to prove themselves for the Spanish strikers who get a lot of criticism for being blunt.
