Euro 2020: SVK vs ESP Preview

By Parameswaran Sankaranarayanan June 23, 2021

Slovakia (SVK), Spain (ESP) will be keen to seal a Euro 2020 last 16 spot when they square off against each other tonight. A draw will see Slovakia progress to knockout stages, while a point, too, will be enough for Spain, provided Poland won’t pick up three points Sweden. Both teams failed to pick up a win in their respective last games. Slovakia suffered a defeat at the hands of Sweden, and Spain had to share points with Poland.

Marek Hamsik is the player to watch out for in the Slovakia line-up. He is key to all attacking moves and could have added his second assist in the tournament had Juraj Kucka’s header went in against Sweden. Hamsik would be hoping that his fellow attacking players could be more clinical in front of the goal.

Spain will hope to avoid a third successive draw and qualify to the knockout stages with three points. Captain Sergio Busquets and Thiago Alcantara are likely to be drafted into the playing eleven. Meanwhile, Alvaro Morata’s return to scoring ways would have pleased Spain head coach Luis Enrique. It was Gerard Moreno who set up the goal for the Juventus forward.
