Match Preview

Two European juggernauts, Spain and Germany, will face off at the MHPArena in Stuttgart on Friday evening in a highly anticipated Euro 2024 quarter-final match. Both nations are vying for a record fourth European Championship title. The winner of this clash will advance to the semi-finals to meet either Portugal or France. Spain, the only team with a perfect record in this tournament, impressively won all three of their group games for the first time since 2008. Their remarkable form continued in the last 16, where they came from behind to defeat Georgia 4-1, showcasing their resilience and attacking prowess. 

Spain's journey to the quarter-finals has been marked by youthful exuberance and tactical brilliance under Luis de la Fuente. The team extended their unbeaten run at the European Championship to ten matches, excluding penalty shootouts, and demonstrated their depth with goals from Fabian Ruiz, Nico Williams, and Dani Olmo in their last match. Despite their historical struggles against host nations in major tournaments, Spain's recent record against Germany is favorable, having not lost any of their last six competitive meetings since 1998. This includes memorable victories such as their 1-0 win in the Euro 2008 final and a stunning 6-0 triumph in the 2020 UEFA Nations League.

Germany, hosting Euro 2024, aims to win their first European Championship since 1996. They overcame Denmark 2-0 in the round of 16 in a match filled with drama, including a thunderstorm and VAR controversies. Goals from Kai Havertz and Jamal Musiala secured their progression, with Musiala now among the tournament's top scorers. Under Julian Nagelsmann, Germany's squad has shown signs of realizing their potential, reaching the quarter-finals of a major tournament for the first time since Euro 2016. Germany's impressive statistics, including being among the top teams in goals scored, attacks, attempts on goal, and possession, highlight their formidable presence in the competition.

Historically, Germany has been dominant on home soil against Spain, remaining unbeaten in their last eight encounters (W5 D3). This, coupled with the support of a passionate home crowd, adds to their confidence. Nagelsmann might make strategic changes to his lineup, possibly recalling Jonathan Tah in defense and considering adjustments in the attacking trio. Spain, on the other hand, is likely to stick with their successful starting lineup, with teenage sensation Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams expected to support captain Alvaro Morata in the attack. The stage is set for a thrilling battle between two of Europe's finest footballing nations, with both teams determined to continue their quest for glory.
