Spain, Italy and England can reach the playoffs after the second round.

The second round of the European Championship is already underway in Germany. Today, June 20, three games will be played. One of them has a last level signal.

Slovenia – Serbia

The Serbian team faced England in the 1st round. It turned out to be a very boring game with minimal moments. The British scored a goal and did not have much desire to advance, and the Serbs were afraid to go and recover. When Dragan Stojkovic’s team put pressure on the English goal late on, they created a couple of chances. However, he did not score and lost 0-1.

In the match against Slovenia, Serbia will have much more freedom. Yes, Matjaz Kek’s team snatched a draw from Denmark (1-1) in the first match and in the end was able to add three points. But still the level of Serbian footballers is much higher. And they have nowhere to retreat: defeat will almost certainly deprive Serbia of any chance of reaching the playoffs. But Slovenia also needs a victory: in round 3 the team will play against England, where there will be almost no hope of scoring points. Bookmakers believe in Serbia’s victory: their odds are 1.83. A Slovenian success is valued at 5.00 and a draw at 3.50.

In the first game the Slovenians made a lot of shots and achieved an interesting achievement:

Denmark – England

Match-replay of the Euro 2020 semi-final poster. It is true that from that moment on the Danes weakened. But England is the main favorite of the tournament according to Opta. In the first round, the British beat Serbia by a minimal score, but deserved some criticism for their pragmatic football. Gareth Southgate’s team scored a goal and almost stopped attacking, acting according to the result. Competent, but not entirely attractive to viewers. Denmark missed the victory over Slovenia in their match: Christian Eriksen opened the scoring in the 17th minute, but towards the end Erik Janzha scored the return goal. Denmark seemed surprised, as if such a scenario had never been considered. Kasper Julmann’s team was closer to conceding than scoring. A disappointing result for the fans.

Now the teams will play a key group match. England can book a place in the playoffs and Denmark can seriously complicate their fight for the round of 16 (or get closer to exit). The English, of course, are the favorites, but the Danes know how to give their best at the most important moment. Furthermore, in the first round, Southgate’s team showed that they should not be afraid. The big names (Kane, Bellingham, Saka, Foden, Palmer, Rice, Alexander-Arnold) intimidate more than they hurt.

Why did some players choose the England team when they could have played for another?

Spain Italy

The first truly important match of Euro 2024. There have never been signs like these before! The 2008 and 2012 European champions (Spain) will face the winners of Euro 2020 (Italy). Spaniards and Italians will meet in the fifth consecutive European tournament, and in total they have faced each other seven times. In the last two cases (in 2016 and 2021), Italy won. But now it is difficult to predict how the game will end.

In the first round, Spain defeated Croatia (3-0). But the result did not fully reflect the course of the match. The Spaniards took advantage of almost all their chances, but the Croatians wasted several chances and missed a penalty. Italy barely beat Albania 2:1, but left a very pleasant impression. It is interesting now to observe the clash between Italians and Spaniards. How will Italian romanticism pass the test of Spanish pragmatism? The betting houses believe that Luis de la Fuente’s team is the favorite in the match. The coefficient of their victory is 2.18, of the success of the Italians – 3.70 (draw – 3.30).

The match is also important from a tournament point of view. The winner is 100% guaranteed to advance to the playoffs from first place. Albania and Croatia scored one point each and the positions in the table are distributed based on head-to-head matches. A victory in the group allows us to have a slightly more modest opponent in the playoffs. If Italy and Spain tie, they will add four points each. The fight for first place will continue, but then both teams will de facto secure a place in the round of 16. In the history of the updated Euro Cup there have never been cases where a team has not left the group with four points.
