Australia will be optimistic following their victory against La Albiceleste and can cause another upset. However, Australia could undoubtedly be the tournament's dark horse and will give Spain tough times when they meet in their first-ever game.

Spain has a quality squad, as few players have already played in Euro 2020. However, with an experienced team, La Furia Roja knows when to pull strings and change the game.
