Sports Mole looks at how Spain could line up in Thursday’s UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia.
Spain thumped Croatia 6-0 in the reverse match back in September and know that another victory would move them onto nine points from their four Group 4 fixtures, which would be enough to top the section.
Thursday will actually be just the eighth meeting between these two international teams, with Spain winning four of the previous seven.
Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Spain could line up in Zagreb.
Spain boss Enrique shocked many when he recalled Jordi Alba to his latest squad. The pair do not have the best of relationships, but Alba’s form for Barcelona this season has been excellent, and the full-back is expected to be given the nod on Thursday night.
The right-back spot could be taken by Cesar Azpilicueta with Dani Carvajal still on the sidelines, while captain Sergio Ramos is expected to be joined by Inigo Martinez in central defence, as Nacho is also injured.
