The 2010 winners boast perhaps the most gifted squad in the entire competition, Las Rojas boss Julen Lopetegui could select from a superb pool of players – such as Andres Iniesta, Sergio Ramos, David de Gea and marksman Diego Costa.
So, with this blockbusting friendly nearly here, we’ve picked out our top tips and odds.
Rampant Rodrigo set to net first
Valencia’s star striker Rodrigo has had a terrific season for the Mestalla men, blasting in 16 La Liga goals in which the club booked their place in the Champions League next season.
Proving prolific up top or capable of playing on either wing, Lopetegui might look to Rodrigo to provide pace.
Though born in Brazil, the adopted Spanish national has netted in two of his last four caps – one of which was against reigning World Cup champions Germany.
He is good value to net first against the Swiss at 10/3 with Coral.
Lopetegui’s men to win by two goals
Spain have dominated the history of this fixture, in 19 games against Switzerland, Spain have won 15 of them.
In five of the last seven meetings with Le Nati, Las Rojas have emerged victors while keeping a clean sheet.
Lopetegui’s men are 11/4 to beat the Swiss by two clear goals on Sunday night with betfair.
