The Spanish team plays qualifying for the round of 16: a win confirms the pass, a draw would be practical enough and a defeat complicates everything
The World Cup in Qatar 2022 has been seen and not seen. Less than 48 hours have passed since Costa Rica’s historic debut defeat and the players of the Spanish team are already thinking about Germany. East
Sunday 27 Nov They will play against the Germans in a duel that may condemn or overly complicate the group.
La Roja’s accounts are clear: win, win and win. Despite the 7-0 against Costa Rica, it is useful not to trust. Luis Enrique already said it this Wednesday: “Praise weakens.” And that is exactly what the coach does not want to happen this Sunday.
Germany plays everything on one card. Her loss to Japan leaves her on the ropes. Only the victory is worth it. A draw would have them virtually eliminated. And the same goes for Spain. A win seals qualification for the round of 16, a draw would practically confirm it, but a defeat complicates the entire group. In this case, Spain should beat Japan, assuming Costa Rica starts with zero points. The hypothetical classification would be determined by goal difference after recording a three-way draw. Hence the importance of adding at least one point against Germany.
Spain-Germany can be followed live from 8 p.m. via La 1 de TVE and the accompanying mobile application. Those who have the Gol Mundial app can also enjoy the game.
The other match in the group, Japan-Costa Rica, will be played in Spain on November 27 at 11am.
Luis Enrique will put all the meat on the grill, so the eleven will be very similar to those presented in the debut against Costa Rica. These are the eleven that the coach will choose a priori:
Simon; Carvajal, Rodri, Laporte, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Gavi, Pedri; Ferran, Asensio and Morata.
