germany spain preview euro 2024

By Eduard Bănulescu

Germany vs. Spain is the first great derby of the knockout stages at Euro 2024. Both teams have distinct styles of play and have shown themselves to be quite attack-minded.

As we get ready to enjoy the big game, here’s what to expect and the player you might want to consider for your fantasy football team.

Germany vs. Spain

Does Your Euro 2024 Fantasy Football Team Need Jamal Musiala 2

It’s not true that the teams who perform best in the group stages of a big tournament end up winning it. In fact, often it is not the case.

Still, Germany and Spain are the teams that impressed the most in Euro 2024. Both have played aggressive attacking football. Both teams won their groups and, then, qualified to the Quarter-Finals fairly easily.

What about squads? Spain is more impressive in this regard. On paper, there’s a good balance between established stars (Rodri or Dani Carvajal), exciting youngsters (Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams), and strong substitutes (Mikel Oyarzabal or Mikel Merino).

On the other hand, Germany has emotion on its side. The fact that this could be Toni Kroos’ final game in football will weigh heavily. And the support of the home crowd cannot be underestimated.

Verdict: This may be the first proper battle of great attacking teams at this Euro. Spain has the stronger squad, but Germany has the support of the home crowd. Expect a narrow Spanish victory, perhaps, in extra time.

Fantasy Football Picks for Germany

Just How Effective Is Florian Wirtz in Euro 2024 Fantasy Football?

The German team is dependable. It is made up of a few great stars, most of them just slightly past their prime, and a few unexciting and efficient players. The latter tend to have been recruited from the Bundesliga, a respectable but generally unexciting league.

Jamal Musiala and Florian Wirtz are exceptions. They’re young players of immense and partly proven potential.

Germany’s starting eleven, apart from one or two changes to the defense, is well established.

Die Mannschaft’s top players in terms of fantasy football stats have been Toni Kroos, Joshua Kimmich, Antonio Rudiger, Jamal Musiala, and, unexpectedly, Maximilian Mittelstadt.

Fantasy Football Picks for Spain

Mikel Oyarzabal in Euro 2024 Fantasy Football

Spain is the only team that’s won all its games at Euro 2024. While it struggled in its opening fixture against Croatia, they have been dazzling at times.

The squad is very well-balanced. Luis de la Fuente’s tactics allow for more creativity. And a victory against host nation Germany could all but clear the way toward victory in this tournament.

Spain’s best-performing players in Euro 2024 fantasy football in FootballCoin have been Fabian Ruiz, Aymeric Laporte, Rodri, Lamine Yamal, and Marc Cucurella.
