Parimatchnews will tell you everything you need to know ahead of the upcoming match.

England Women News & Current Form: 

England are in great form at the moment, with a run of nine wins in a row, and it should be noted that they have crushed some tough opponents along the way. Worth highlighting are victories against Norway 8-0, the Netherlands 5-1 and Belgium 3-0. 

In Women`s World Cup qualifying, the England women’s national team topped Group D with 24 points after 8 games played. Imagine that: the goal difference stands at 68-0. The cherry on the cake was the match against Latvia, where Sarina Wiegman’s charges thrashed Balts 20-0, setting a national record.

The Lionesses also allowed no goals in the Euro group stage, netting a total of 14 goals. The last match the team played on the July 15th, in which they beat modest Northern Ireland 0-5.

Right now, the English are the main candidates to win the Euros. They look really powerful, the home walls and the fans in the stands create a synergistic effect. There is every chance of continuing to deliver flawless results in the playoffs.

Spain Women News & Current Form:

In World Cup qualifying, the Red Fury won all six of their matches to earn 18 points and top spot in the group. In the Euro qualifiers, Spain recorded seven successes and a draw in eight rounds, winning Group D. The goal difference was 48-1.

Now the Spaniards approach the quarter-finals as underdogs, with the national team finishing second in the group. They played a total of three matches, winning two and losing one with a goal difference of +2. 

The squad only managed to clinch a play-off spot in the last match by beating Denmark 0-1. In spite of the minimal score it was obvious that the collective desire to make the play-offs was in evidence, they showed total superiority over their opponent, had more ball possession, took more shots on goal and also showed better pressing. The team is in good form and in the last 10 games they have lost only once, to Germany 2-0. The many talents in the squad may give a certain hope for victory. However, relying on individual over-performance by certain players against such an opponent is an unreliable plan, perhaps Jorge Vilda has something in store for the knockout stage.

What has been said before the match:

Sarina Wiegman, England coach:

“I do think Spain will have the ball a lot; that’s just how they play with their possession and tightness on the ball, which is OK. But I do expect we will have more of the ball than 20% [like the last time the teams met] because I think we’re pretty tight on the ball too. We prepare for the game and we want to play our best game. If necessary we know we have players that can really impact the game or give an extra boost. We’ve showed that in all the other games before, so that’s absolutely something that we keep in mind. It’s a strength of our team.”

Jorge Vilda, Spain coach: 

“England are clear contenders for the title. They have speed on the flanks, they have combination play and defensively they’re very solid. They have great players in every position. The only thing I can guarantee is we will give everything to beat them.”

England Women vs Spain Women Prediction:

This will be a very important match for both teams, and they will do their best. 

Furia Roja, just like the ‘men’ brother, employ possessive style of play, but here the tiki-taka is really more about rolling the ball and control for the sake of control, rather than constantly escalating and advancing their position. All the goals in the tournament are just headers from standards and crosses plus penalty against the Finns. We should note, that the combinational performance of Vilda’s side was seriously hampered by a serious injury of world female number one Alexia Poutillas from Barcelona just before the tournament.

The Lionesses will have a hard time getting the ball against the Spanish, but they look stronger offensively and creatively than their rivals. In terms of form, the English team are much better, with a run of nine wins in a row, beating some of the tough teams. They also outclass their opponents in terms of individual skill, as can be seen in their head-to-head encounters. The Spaniards are not likely to demonstrate anything to win this clash.
