Spain will play hosts to Sweden tonight (Monday) at Estadio de la Cartuja in Seville in their UEFA Euro 2020 campaign.
Spain aced the Euro 2020 qualifying stages, winning eight of their ten games while also reaching the UEFA Nations League semi-finals.
A 6-0 triumph over Germany was one of the highlights of Luis Enrique’s spell in charge of the Spanish national team so far, though other results have not been overwhelmingly impressive.
The match against Sweden will be the first game in charge of a major tournament for the former Barcelona manager.
It will indeed be a difficult test, given how the Scandinavian outfit performed in the Euro Qualifiers, finishing second only to Spain in Group F.
Despite struggling in the UEFA Nations League, the spirits are high in the Swedish camp, especially after two back-to-back wins in the warm-up matches, in addition to attaining a 100% winning record in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers so far.
Spain Vs Sweden Lineup
Spain XI (4-3-3): Simón, Llorente, Laporte, Torres, Alba, Koke, Hernández, Pedri, Torres, Morata, Olmo
Sweden XI (4-4-2): Olsen, Lustig, Danielsson, Lindelöf, Augustinsson, Larsson, Ekdal, Olsson, Forsberg, Berg, Isak
Kick off is at 20:00 (GMT +1).
