The UEFA Nations League is back in action with another set of matches as Spain take on Switzerland on Thursday, 9 June. Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and will want to win the game.
Switzerland have made a poor start to their Nations League campaign and will need to bounce back in the coming weeks. The Swiss slumped to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Portugal last week and will look to return to winning ways against La Furia Roja.
Spain have also made an underwhelming start to their campaign and have a point to on Thursday. The 2010 World Cup winners were held to a 2-2 draw by the Czech Republic in their previous game.
