Spain know their Euro 2020 fate is on the line in their final Group E match against Slovakia this evening.

Draws against Sweden and Poland in their opening two games have left Spain right up against it, with goals a problem.

Cesar Azpilicueta has not played so far, but he returns to the side this afternoon as one of several changes to Luis Enrique’s side.

Captain and midfielder Sergio Busquets was sorely missed in Spain’s first two games due to testing positive for Covid-19, but is set to return here.
