Spain host Kosovo in their third match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign at the Estadio de La Cartuja in Seville on Wednesday night.
Spain are currently second in the group after two games, with four points. They drew 1-1 against Greece in the opener, before struggling to a 2-1 win against Georgia on Sunday night.
They were 1-0 down and were heading for another shock result before turning things around in the second half.
Ferran Torres equalized midway through the second half. Spain then had to wait until stoppage time for the winner, which was scored by Dani Olmo with a shot from distance.
Kosovo, on the other hand, have lost the only game that they have played so far. On Sunday night, they were beaten 3-0 by Sweden.
Bernard Berisha was sent off late in the game, after Ludwig Augustinsson, Alexander Isak and Sebastian Larsson had made sure of the points for the Swedes.
