Why you should back Spain
La Roja was a difficult team to score against during qualifying, as it allowed a total of five goals and posted five clean sheets over 10 matches. The team has continued its stingy defensive play in the group stage, playing Sweden to a 0-0 draw in its opener while its contest against Poland ended in a 1-1 deadlock. Since March 23, 2019, Spain has yielded nine goals in 17 contests across all competitions and hasn't been scored upon more than once in any match during that span.
In addition to Alvaro Morata, who has produced the side's lone group stage goal thus far, Spain has a dangerous offensive weapon in Gerard Moreno. The 29-year-old forward, who notched an assist on Morata's tally, led Villarreal in scoring during the 2020-21 La Liga season with 23 goals. Moreno also tied for the lead in both goals and assists in the 2020-21 UEFA Europa League with seven and five, respectively.
Why you should back Slovakia
Slovakia has an experienced competitor in Marek Hamsik, who has appeared in 42 Euro matches (including qualifiers) - more than any other Slovakian in history. The 33-year-old midfielder has recorded 11 goals in those contests, which also places him first on the country's all-time list. Hamsik, who notched an assist in Slovakia's 2-1 victory over Poland in its group-stage opener, is the nation's all-time leader in games (128) and goals (26).
Vladimir Weiss, a 31-year-old winger, is back with the team after an absence of nearly three years. Weiss, who tallied for Slovakia in Euro 2016, is one of five players on the roster who also represented the country in the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Slovakia is hoping to receive production from 23-year-old midfielder Laszlo Benes, who scored his first international goal in a friendly against Bulgaria on June 1.
