Spain arrives to the crash against Slovakia forced to win to classify. A tie or a defeat will do that the ones of Luis Enrique depend on other results
The first tropiezos of the Spanish selection, first in front of Sweden and afterwards in front of Poland, have complicated his possibilities to ensure the classification and now will have to seal the ticket to eighth in front of the combined of Slovakia next Wednesday in The Cartuja.
The ideal stage is the victory: a triumph of The Red will ensure the classification like first or second of group, depending on what can occur in the another commitment of the group between Sweden and Poland: a victory of the Scandinavians (that they add four points) will give them the leadership, whereas a pact will carry to a review of the differential of goals.
A tie of Spain (third with two points) will do that the classification depend of the another crash: a victory of Poland (last with a point) relegaría to the ones of Luis Enrique to the last position, without any option to advance, since there would be a tie to four points between Sweden, Poland and Slovakia.
Spain depends on yes same, but has to win
If the tie of The Red combines with a Swedish victory or a tie in the another commitment, would be third and will have to expect by the results of the rest of the groups to define if it does with one of the four tickets to the best third of the first phase, that until the moment would have to Finland, Austria and Portugal, those who already add three points in two dates of the zones B, C and F, respectively.
Even the defeat can classify to Spain, but will remain at the expense of a miracle. For this has to expect a tie in the Sweden-Poland, that would equalise them in points with the selection of Lewandowski and company. For this will be precise to review the difference of goals or included other criteria of tiebreaker, since in the direct clash finished empatados. Likewise, it will have to pray so that another selection in the rest of the groups do not reach the three points and have a differential of so many favourable with regard to the other third.
