Spain are eyeing their first victory in their Euro 2020 campaign while facing Poland in the second game of Group E. La Roja played a stalemate against Sweden in their opening match by not being clinical enough despite enjoying a large chunk of possession on the ball.
Luis Enrique will be hoping his strikers find scoring feat at the right time to gain maximum points this time out. Alvaro Morata fluffed some golden opportunities to score and substitute Gerard Moreno was denied late in the second half by the impressive Robin Olsen for Sweden.
The Polish army had a performance to forget against Slovakia for their shoddy defending costing them their match. Robert Lewandowski was left isolated up front with no support on his back while Krychowiak's dismissal added salt to the wound. Milan Skriniar went on to score an emphatic winner for Slovakia.

Luis Enrique's men will be able to find the back of the net at last in this fixture although their lack of clinical attitude in the final third will still be an issue. A victory will ensure their place in the last 16. Poland is expected to drop deep and avoid Spain opening them up. As a result, they will have fewer things to offer upfront. Possibly elimination.
