They will go on to the play-offs, where the competition for the gold will be intensified.

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

Germany Women News & Current Form: 

Germany are a dangerous contender and favourites to win the tournament, with six straight European Championship golds to prove it, although their streak was interrupted in the quarter-finals in 2017. 

The eight-time European champions and two-time World Cup winners recorded eight wins out of eight mathces and 46 goals in the women’s Euro 2022 qualifying stage. There was just one goal conceded, with the Germans beating Ireland 3-1 in the last round.

In World Cup qualifying, the nominal hostesses scored seven victories and 21 points, while hitting their opponents’ goals 36 times. 

In the first match of the group stage of the tournament, the Germans confidently defeated opponents from Denmark – 4-0. By the way, the Danes are not among the weakest in the world of women’s football and at the last EC they took silver. In spite of this fact they were no match for the Germans, being absolutely powerless.

All the players are available for the match against Spain.

Spain Women News & Current Form:

Spain have never won a trophy in an international tournament, so they do not look like a serious contender for Germany. It may seem that in the world of women’s football the Spaniards are not widely regarded as a formidable force. They played their first game in the group stage against Finland, beating them 4-1. The Finns are much weaker opponents, and the result was to be expected. The victory proved to be a volitional one. The Red Fury quickly came to their senses after a quick goal from their opponents and got back into the game. The pressure was so great that Spain took 32 shots on goal and 13 on target, with only two in response.

There is reason to believe in the great potential of the Spaniards, although there is nothing improbable about this win against the Finns, which is how the game should have ended against the underdog of the group stage.

What is certain, though, is that they are in the top 7 of the world for a reason. Despite their lack of success in previous campaigns, Jorge Vilda has a very strong squad with a lot of promise. Three of the top 10 female players play for the Red Fury. The Spaniards have shown at club level that they have great talent and ability, all that remains is to cope with the pressure of such a big event. Alexia Putellas, the world’ best female player, winner of the Ballon d’Or Féminin 2021 and captain of the Barcelona Women will be instrumental in helping to handle the stress.

What has been said before the match:

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg, Germany coach: 

“The team know the challenge we’re up against next. Spain will also have kept an eye on what we’ve done. We will take the team spirit from a performance like [the 4-0 win against Denmark] with us and are looking forward to our next game.” 

Jorge Vilda, Spain coach: 

“Something we can improve on is our play. We didn’t see the best Spain we can [against Finland]. Judging on past experiences, we always grow into tournaments. We’re a family and have great fortitude.” 

“We were on the cusp of winning [their last meeting with Germany, a 1-1 draw in February]; they equalised in the dying minutes. We weren’t able to get that second goal, which I think would have finished the game off. They caused us a bit of trouble on the counter but we were in control of the game, and it was a learning curve. We are up for it and think it’s the best opportunity to beat Germany for the first time.”

Germany Women vs Spain Women Prediction:

It’s important for either team to get three points, or their play-off progress will be slightly delayed. The Germans and Spaniards won their first matches and by almost the same score. The Red Fury have historically played poorly against Germany, so it is more difficult for them morally. It is necessary to prepare the players so that they do not feel the pressure before the game. To get their first-ever win against the Eagles is a difficult task, but it is achievable for sure, espesially looking at the promising generation that made some noise this year at Barcelona.
