SPAIN could guarantee their spot in the World Cup in Russia this evening (Friday) as they take on third placed Albania.
The 2010 World Champions head into their final two qualifiers top of Group G and will qualify if second placed Italy, who are three points adrift, fail to match or better their result.
La Roja are unbeaten in their World Cup Qualifying Group, having only dropped points in a 1-1 draw with Italy last year, but will face stern opposition in tonight’s opponents.
The Albanians have not lost in their last three World Cup Qualifiers, including a 3-0 win over Israel, and will be buoyed by the news that in-form Alvaro Morata will play no part.
The Chelsea striker withdrew from the squad earlier this week with a hamstring injury and joins Real Madrid´s Dani Carvajal and Barcelona´s Andres Iniesta on the absentee list.
Kick off is at 8:45pm.
