Today, two Round of 16 matches of Euro 2024 will take place in Germany, with the final match of the day featuring one of Europe's most decorated teams, Spain, against the tournament's surprise package, Georgia.

Spain unsurprisingly finished at the top of their group, ahead of Italy, Croatia, and Albania. La Furia Roja is the only team to have collected the maximum number of points in the tournament's first stage.

Georgia has been the revelation of the tournament. After a 1-3 defeat to Turkey, they bounced back with a 1-1 draw against the Czech Republic and then defeated a second-string Portugal side 2-0. With four points and third place in their group, the Georgians made it to the playoffs in their first-ever Euro.

Ahead of the match, one of Spain's leaders, Nico Williams, stated that he considers his team the best in the tournament.

"I haven't seen anyone play better. There is no team better than us. France has great individual potential. So does England. But in terms of team play, sacrifice, and work, no one compares to us."

Meanwhile, Georgia's goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili, who has been one of the tournament's standout players and played a crucial role in their progression to the playoffs, assessed the Spanish team. When asked about the main threat in Spain's lineup, he said:

"Almost everyone. Yamal has many qualities: he scores goals, provides assists. They also have, in my opinion, the best goalkeeper of the season in La Liga [Unai Simón]. We will have to fight and stay focused, as we have done so far."

He added about his compatriot Khvicha Kvaratskhelia:

"I think he's better than the entire Spanish team."

Spain is the clear favorite for the match and will likely try to prove it on the field, but the Georgians will do everything they can to continue their incredible run.

Coaches are expected to field their strongest players, and the Dailysports team has prepared information on the probable starting line-ups based on previous coaching decisions.
