    should lose in the first round

    Hello, teachers.

    I've found the following:

    1. It is hard to believe that Martin's team, which was said to be unbeatable, should lose in the first round.

    Q1. What does "should" mean in this case?

    Q2. In this case, did Martin's team lose actually?


    Thank you very much for your help on these.

    In the first, "should" means "would". Yes, they lost.
