Following their 7-0 thrashing of Costa Rica earlier in the week, Spain will be feeling confident going into their crucial matchup with Germans on Sunday evening.
Six different players scored goals for Spain, with Barcelona forward Ferran Torres scoring twice.
In contrast to Germany, Luis Enrique’s team had a magnificent opening day of the World Cup in Qatar.
While, despite leading 1-0 at the half against Japan, the World Cup champions from 2014 fell short 2-1. Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano stunned the Germans after Ilkay Gundogan scored a first-half penalty.
Germany entered the 2022 World Cup as legitimate favorites to win it, but they were shocked by a shocking 2-1 loss to Japan in their opening match.
Die Mannschaft (Germany), who boasts a number of dangerous players, will need to mount a swift comeback this weekend.
This German side is a bit weaker defensively and Spain who already bashed their first game by winning it by scoring 7 goals going to take advantage of that.
With a win in that match, La Furia Roja (Spain), who currently sits atop their group, might guarantee their spot in the knockout stages.
But this doesn’t mean the Germans not going to give a tough fight. Germany is a very strong team with a lot of talent potential. Losing to Japan will give them an extra push, an extra effort to win that game.
Germany looks strong but Spain looks stronger. I mean they got the perfect team, young talent to experienced professionals they got everything. Many fans were not happy about not picking Sergio Ramos in the squad but I think that’s not the problem now after the first game. So, Spain, yes, they will beat Germany as Germany will struggle with Spain defensively.
But it’s just an opinion, what will happen, will happen in the match.
In the 25 games played between the two teams, Germany has a small edge over Spain and has won nine of those games to Spain’s eight.
Spain has faced Germany four times during the World Cup. Spain won 1-0 and went on to win the competition when they last faced off in the semi-finals in 2010.
