The UEFA EURO 2020 continues in full swing, and the group stage gradually enters defining moments. This Friday continues the second day, where groups D and E will be the protagonists. It should be noted that the first two from each zone qualify for the round of 16 along with the four best third parties.

Two teams that went with a smile on your face first date to start shaping the Group E. Slovakia surprised everyone in his debut and defeated the Poland of Robert Lewandowski 2-1. If you win a victory at Hampden Park, you will have your ticket to the round of 16 guaranteed with one game to go. However, with Marek Hamsik as hitch and reference of the Slovaks, they will not have it easy in Scotland.

In front appears Sweden, which has drawn 0-0 against Spain in a duel in which they gave the leading role to their rivals. The Swedes will seek to have more chances to attack Emil Forsberg as the standard in the next match to validate the point they reaped in a great way in their debut in the Eurocup. The stadium will have a 25% capacity available for fans who want to watch the international clash.

Otherwise, the Czech Republic was planted in its debut against Scotland and took a great victory 2-0.
