Spain squares off with Georgia at Cologne Stadium in what promises to be a thrilling Euro 2024 round-of-16 encounter between experience and ambition.

Spain, buoyed by a solid defensive record and a rich attacking arsenal, navigated their group stage with a narrow victory over Albania, secured by Ferran Torres’ early goal.

Coach Luis de la Fuente’s squad now confronts a Georgia team brimming with confidence after their historic win against Portugal in the group stage.

Despite Spain’s recent setbacks in knockout stages, their defensive resilience remains a cornerstone, yet to concede a goal in Germany.

Georgia, under the guidance of Willy Sagnol, has captured hearts with their spirited play and tactical acumen.

Their victory over Portugal showcased their ability to capitalize on opportunities, driven by standout performances from Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Georges Mikautadze.

However, Georgia’s defensive vulnerabilities, evidenced by their high shots faced and expected goals conceded, present a critical area of concern against Spain’s potent attack.

Historically, Spain holds a commanding record against Georgia, winning six out of seven encounters since 2012.

Despite this, Georgia’s spirited run in Euro 2024 marks their debut at a major tournament, fueling their determination to upset the odds.
