Match details: UEFA Nations League
Group A: Switzerland vs Spain
Time: 8:45 pm (CET)
Venue: Stade de Geneve
Referee: Serdar Gozubuyuk
Switzerland are still without a win following their losses to the Czech Republic and Portugal. They will face another elite side from their group in the form of Luis Enrique's Spain.
The Swiss will need to reassemble, as they cannot afford three defeats in a row. The players will need to find a way to win, or they would hamper their chances of getting out of the group.
Spain are also winless following draws with Portugal and the Czech Republic. The La Roja have players who can produce when needed, but their draws in the past two games, have led to doubts about their performance, and Luis Enrique's team are yet to reciprocate. However, the match against Switzerland might be a watershed moment for Spain.
