Switzerland or Spain will tonight become the first team through to the Euro 2020 semi-finals.

Spain boss Luis Enrique has made a habit of switching things up during the tournament but could be tempted to keep changes to a minimum this evening, with only Jordi Alba coming back into the side.

The Swiss will miss suspended captain Granit Xhaka who picked up his second yellow card of the tournament against France, but coach Vladimir Petkovic is confident his players will step up to fill the void.

Here is how the two sides will shape up in Russia tonight...

Switzerland vs Spain starting lineups

Switzerland XI (3-5-2): Sommer, Widmer, Elvedi, Akanji, Zakaria, Embolo, Freuler, Seferovic, Rodriguez, Zuber, Shaqiri.

Spain XI (4-3-3): Simon; Azpilicueta, Laporte, Pau Torres, Alba; Koke, Busquets, Pedri; Sarabia, Morata, Ferran Torres.
