Spain will be keen to maintain their lead at the top of League A Group 2 when they play host to Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League. The Saturday night clash in Zaragoza will be an intriguing one since both sides will have something to benefit from that clash. While Spain are sitting at the top of the table, the Swiss nation is languishing at the bottom of the table.

Besides, they have also gone into this international round without Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara and Barcelona’s Ansu Fati. In David de Gea’s absence, Unai Simon could continue to be Spain’s first-choice goalkeeper. On the other hand, Noah Okafor will not be part of the Switzerland squad for the Nations League matches.
