The accounts of Spain: what do you need to pass to the second round?

Spain has the last bullet, that of Wednesday (6:00 p.m.) against Slovakia, a selection with better numbers than that of Luis Enrique

With one goal and two points in two games it is difficult to go far. But right now it’s the only reality he can hold onto Espaa in this Eurocup, where he walks from intrigue to intrigue. The selection has dawned with a hangover, the hangover of another home game, in La Cartuja, where things did not go well either. What’s more, they came out, due to sensations, even worse than against Sweden. Even so, if the Swede Berg had hit an empty door and Swiderski’s whip had missed the post, the boat could find itself in an even more dramatic situation.

But the reality is that Espaa He has two points, and despite his poor toe, with one goal and a handful of frustrations after 28 shots (only Turkey and Scotland, who have yet to score, travel with less baggage), he still has one last bullet. That of Wednesday (6:00 pm) against Slovakia, a team with better numbers than Luis Enrique’s, thanks to his victory on the first day against Poland.

It’s hard to stay out of this Eurocup, where 16 of the 24 participating teams go to the round of 16. Where only two of the six third will have to go home. But in those is Spain. These are the accounts of the Spanish team:

Win over Slovakia

It is the direct way to be one of the 16 teams in round of 16. The national team will stand with five points and, if Poland beats Sweden, they could even do so as the first in the group. That would mean facing one of the four third parties. Right now it is Austria, Switzerland, Croatia and Finland that occupy one of those places in which there is also Espaa. He will do it in Glasgow and, if he passes the round, he will play the quarters in Rome. In the event of a tie between Swedes and Poles, the overall goalaverage will decide the position. If Sweden win, Spain will finish second and their crossing will continue in Copenhagen with the second of group D: England, Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland.

The tie

He would have to cross his fingers and entrust himself to a miracle, since Spain could only continue as one of the best third parties. And that would only happen if in the rest of the groups there are less than two teams that do not improve those three points that they would have with that supposed tie. Right now it is Portugal (who plays with France on the last matchday), Finland and Austria who will accompany the national team. And they are Croatia (Scotland is measured on Tuesday) and Switzerland (closes today -6.00 p.m.- against Turkey), with a single point, the only ones that worsen the record of those of Luis Enrique.

The third match of Espaa In La Cartuja it will be useless if Poland defeats Sweden. It would come last and sign one of the most disappointing entries (if not the most) in its history.

The defeat

There would be a very remote option that would pass, in the first place, because Poland don’t beat Sweden in your group. And it will also depend on Switzerland drawing with Turkey this afternoon (18.00) and Croatia not beating Scotland on Tuesday. The current two points would give you the ticket, but it would be a situation nothing short of miraculous.
