The three-time European champions kick-off their campaign on home soil against their Scandinavian opponents
Spain begin their Euro 2020 campaign on Monday evening at the Estadio La Cartuja in Seville where they face Sweden in Group E.
Luis Enrique has seen his side’s preparations massively disrupted due to a few players testing positive for Covid-19. Also, general feeling in Spain is not overly optimistic about the team’s chances given La Roja’s inconsistent form over the last year.
Sweden’s preparations have also been impacted by coronavirus, yet the Scandinavians will be quietly confident of making the knockout stages of the tournament.

Seville’s Estadio de La Cartuja was chosen as a replacement host city in April 2021 when it was decided that Bilbao would not be hosting any games at the tournament.
Situated in southern Spain, it is occasionally home to the Spain national team and will host three games in Group E as well as a last 16 match.
A UEFA category 4 stadium, the venue was built for the 1999 World Championships in Athletics and has since hosted a number of high profile games, including the 2003 UEFA Cup final between Celtic and Porto.
