What do you need to know?

Highlights: Germany 4-0 Denmark

This could be the most eagerly-anticipated game of the group stage as the eight-time winners Germany face off against a Spain outfit that many are predicting will taste glory in this competition for the first time despite missing some key players through injury.

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg's side served notice of their own intent by enacting an emphatic revenge on Denmark, who knocked them out of the previous edition in the last eight, with the 4-0 victory suggesting the old adage of never writing off the Germans has rarely been more apt.

Similarly, those expecting Spain to lack their usual goals and guile without key pair Alexia Putellas and Jenni Hermoso were made to eat their words as Jorge Vilda's outfit came from behind to ease past Finland 4-1 and get their campaign off to a winning start.

Highlights: Spain 4-1 Finland

Reporters' views

Anna-Sophia Vollmerhausen, Germany reporter

Meet the teams: Germany

After getting off to a fantastic start, all eyes will be on Germany to see if they can exude the same dominance over fellow title contenders Spain. They won't have the element of surprise on their side this time around and will be up against a different quality of attack, with Spain proving they also have the spirit to shake off setbacks. The details will be the difference in this heavyweight contest.

Simon Hart, Spain reporter

Spain showed some of their other qualities in beating Finland – such as mental fortitude and an impressive set-piece threat – but Vilda has said he wants more defensive solidity and a greater cutting edge against opponents Spain are looking to beat for the first time. He did not hide the significance of what a win would mean and Spain have clearly taken confidence from how close they came in the sides' 1-1 draw in February's Arnold Clark Cup.

View from the camps

Meet the teams: Spain

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg, Germany coach: "This will be two strong teams facing off that differ slightly in how they play. Both teams can, and want to, leave their mark at this tournament.

"Spain tend to play a very quick, technical game with lots of possession, and they have proven they know how to score goals as well. They are very skilful, play a lot of one-touch football, can find their way out of pressure and counter-press as well."

Jorge Vilda, Spain coach: "We know they're very solid, very strong; dangerous in transitions and at dead balls, and a clear candidate for the title. Germany are a very strong team with very strong players and historically have a big self-belief from all they've achieved in the past.

"It would be something historic [to win] because we've never achieved it so far. Apart from what a victory would mean in practically taking us through to the quarter-finals … it's something we've been pursuing for many years. The last time we were five minutes away, we were very close."
