Spain is hosting Poland and Estadio de la Cartuja in round 2 of Group E in the Euro Cup 2021. Spain is also one of the teams that are struggling with scoring goals, and that is the problem they will need to fix as soon as possible. Despite having Lewandowski in their team, Poland has not done well in the attacking end, while their defense has been even sloppier.
Spain has the home-field advantage in the group stage of this competition, but even with fans on their side, Spain has been struggling with scoring goals, and that is the problem they have had for a while. Spain is undefeated in their last 8 games, but they have 2 draws from their last 2 games. Spain was playing against Sweden in their last game, and they were dominant with 85% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a high 90% of the correct passes. Spain has created a lot of good chances, but sometimes it seems they want to run with the ball into the goal instead of taking the shot, and that has cost them the win in this game. The final result of this match was 0-0. Spain is now in second place in this group, and they need a win in this game, or the situation might get complicated for them. There will be a few changes in the starting lineup, and I think that will get Spain back on the winning track.
Like I’ve mentioned earlier, Poland was struggling on both ends in their first game, and they are now winless in their last 4 games. During this streak, Poland has conceded at least 1 goal in each of those games, but they have also scored at least 1 goal which has kept them in good form in the attacking end. Poland was playing against Slovakia in their first game, and they have had 57% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 86% of the correct passes. Poland was better in many aspects in this game, but they have conceded 2 goals and a red card, and they ended up losing this match 1-2. Losing Krychowiak is a huge blow for Poland as he is their best midfielder, but there is no time to look back on things as Poland must get more points if they want to have a shot at advancing to the next stage. It doesn’t matter Poland has Lewandowski if no one can give him the ball to score a goal.
The latest game between Spain and Poland was back in 2010, and Spain has won that match 6-0. A lot has changed since that game, and neither team is even close to teams from back then, but I will side with Spain here because they are the better team, they will dominate in this game, and I think they will finally score some goals.
