Toña, Spain coach
We will have to be defensively solid, and we'll have to be decisive in front of goal – we can't afford to waste chances. I think it might be like the first game between us [2-2 on matchday one], because we know each so well now. Both teams will be watching and waiting for the other team's move. I think it will be really tight to begin with, but we'll see if one team gets the advantage.

Coaches Toña and Anouschka Bernhard

Anouschka Bernhard, Germany coach
I expect a high-level game – it will be close, evenly matched, very interesting. It will be important to find a balance between offensive and defensive play. I think the first couple of minutes will be important in order to see which gets better in the game. This will be the important moment.
