Spain will be trying to make its dominance pay off with some goals on Saturday when it hosts Poland in a 2021 European Championships group-stage match in Seville. Spain dominated possession and had its chances in Monday's Euro 2020 opener but had to settle for a 0-0 draw against Sweden. Poland, which has struggled to support star striker Robert Lewandowski, lost 2-1 to Slovakia. Spain is tied with Germany for most all-time European titles with three, its most recent in 2012, and it is on a nine-game unbeaten run (4-5-0). Poland is 1-4-3 in its last eight matches but has not struggled to score goals.
Kickoff from La Cartuja is set for 3 p.m. ET.

Why you should back Spain
The Spaniards failed to score Monday, but they dominated the match in many ways. They held the ball for 75 percent of the time and had a 17-4 advantage in shots, with five on target to zero for Sweden. Rodri should feature in a holding midfield position, while manager Luis Enrique will choose between Liverpool's Thiago Alcantara, maybe the team's most creative player, and Barcelona youngster Pedri to help in midfield distribution.
Alvaro Morata is likely to start up top, but he has struggled to finish, and Gerard Moreno is among those pushing to replace him in the attack. Morata has four goals in seven Euro matches, while Moreno has five in 12 international appearances in 2021. Moreno had some solid chances off the bench Monday. Dani Olmo, 23, and Ferran Torres, 21, are expected to play on the outside, and the defense is spearheaded by Aymeric Laporte and Pau Torres in the middle. Spain is 8-1-1 all-time against Poland, including a 6-0 victory in the last meeting in 2010.
Why you should back Poland
The Poles are really struggling, but with Lewandowski on their side, they'll always have a chance. The elite striker had a record 41 goals for Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich, 13 more than any other player in the league. He also had seven assists, and he has six goals and two assists in 12 matches with Poland in 2021. Poland has scored in seven straight, and it is ranked a respectable No. 21 in the FIFA world rankings.
Lewandowski gets support from Piotr Zielinski and Karol Swiderski, while Jakub Swierczok and Dawid Kownacki are solid options. Zielinski, who had eight goals and 10 assists with Napoli in Serie A, could drop back to replace suspended key man Grzegorz Krychowiak. Swiderski had 11 goals for PAOK in Greece.
