Spain and Germany have shown impressive attacking potential so far

Spain and Germany will come across each other in a blockbuster 2024 Euro quarter-final on Friday afternoon at Stuttgart Arena.

The Germans managed their maiden knockout-phase win in eight years at major competitions. Spain got off to their best start to European Championship since 2008 when they went on to win the whole thing.

  • Spain have won all four games at the Euro.
  • Germany looked vulnerable in the previous two matches.
  • Both teams were on target in three of the last four head-to-head affairs between Spain and Germany.
  • La Furia Roja enter this on the back of a demolishing 4-1 victory over Georgia in the round of 16.

Germany were struggling to break the deadlock against the Danes in the round of 16. They got lucky to see Joachim Andersen’s second-half goal getting ruled out for a marginal offside call just minutes before the same player conceded a penalty.

Kai Havertz made no mistake from the spot while Jamal Musiala doubled Germany’s lead soon to take the game into safe waters for the hosts. Bayern Munich’s midfielder is now the competition’s joint-top scorer with three goals to his name.

Spain got off to a wrong-footed start in their round of 16 affair with Georgia. Nevertheless, Luis de la Fuente’s men bounced back in style after conceding the opening goal.

La Roja responded with four goals in Georgian net. Rodri, Fabian Ruiz, Nico Williams, and Dani Olmo were on target for mighty Spaniards on Sunday evening.
