The German handballers, in spite of the obvious 26:33-defeat in the second EM group match against Spain, still have a clear vision of entering the main round.
In the final encounter on Monday (18:15 clock) against Latvia, in theory, even a defeat with nine goals could be different from entering the second tournament phase. Germany is sure to continue:
1. in a victory against Latvia
2. in a rematch against Latvia, if the Netherlands does not win against Spain
3. in a defeat with a maximum of nine goals difference against Latvia, if the Netherlands loses against Spain
