Preview

  • Tournament: Euro 2024
  • Date: Sunday, June 30
  • Kick-off Time: 08:00 pm GMT
  • Venue: RheinEnergieStadion, Germany

Spain national football team will go head-to-head in the Euro 2024 campaign when they take on the Georgia national football team in the round-of-16 game at the RheinEnergieStadion. La Roja are expected to pick up the crucial three points.

Spain will aim for a positive outcome on Sunday against a side who are the first-time qualifiers of the tournament. Luis de la Fuente’s side is the only European team that have managed to win all three wins in the group stage. La Roja would want to maintain their recent high standards, having played such excellent football in Germany this summer. They have arguably been the standout team of Euro 2024 and are the favorites to book their place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Meanwhile, Georgia secured an emphatic 2-0 win over Portugal in their last game to book their place in the knockout rounds. This is their first appearance in the European Championships and reaching the knockout stages is a massive feat for a nation that hardly had any football presence on the international stage. Georgia defied expectations and became one of the most entertaining teams in the competitions.
