SWITZERLAND SUBS: Loris Benito, Eray Comert, Renato Steffen, Yvon Mvogo, Djibril Sow, Ruben Vargas, Becir Omeragic, Admir Mehmedi, Mario Gavranovic, David von Ballmoos.

SWITZERLAND (4-4-1-1): Yann Sommer; Edimilson Fernandes, Nico Elvedi, Manuel Akanji, Ricardo Rodriguez; Xherdan Shaqiri, Granit Xhaka, Remo Freuler, Steven Zuber; Breel Embolo; Haris Seferovic.

Spain can take a huge stride towards the Nations League Finals with a victory tonight. Luis Enrique’s men are currently top of Group 4, holding a one-point lead over Germany. La Roja were stunned by Ukraine last time out in Kiev, losing 1-0 on the road. They have to be wary of the threat of Switzerland. Spain face a test of character as well as their quality this evening.

Switzerland are staring down the possibility of relegation to Nations League B if they’re unable to lift themselves off the foot of Group 4. Vladimir Petkovic’s men have claimed only two points from their four matches to date, one of which came last time out in a 3-3 draw against Germany. Switzerland have played decent football at times, but need to turn those displays into a victory – starting tonight against La Roja.

Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Nations League clash between Switzerland and Spain at St. Jakob-Park.
