Spain vs Switzerland - 7.45pm kick-off, live on the Sky Sports Football from 7.40pm

Live UEFA Nations League

Fabian Ruiz is not able to meet up with the squad after Napoli placed their squad in quarantine following two positive tests leading up to their postponed fixture so Rodri and Sergio Busquets are in competition to start in a midfield three.

Highlights of the international friendly between Portugal and Spain

David de Gea is expected to return in goal after Kepa Arrizabalaga started the 0-0 draw with Portugal.

Switzerland welcome back Xherdan Shaqiri after a second test for coronavirus returned negative. Manuel Akanji is ruled out with the virus, however, while Renato Steffen is injured.

Player watch: Liverpool's Thiago Alcantara tested positive for coronavirus so will be missing here once more, but there is plenty of Premier League interest. Wolves' Adama Traore could make his competitive debut after an encouraging cameo off the bench in the midweek friendly.

Highlights of the international friendly between Germany and Turkey

Ukraine face a selection crisis after a number of their players were declared unavailable for selection due to injuries and positive coronavirus test results.

Head coach Andriy Shevchenko named 45-year-old assistant coach Oleksandr Shovkovskiy on the bench against France but goalkeeper Mykita Shevchenko has been called up to join the squad.

Mykola Matvienko and Junior Moraes have withdrawn from the squad after their tests came out positive but Viktor Kovalenko, Romero Marlos and Valery Bondar have been called up. Heorhiy Bushchan conceded seven on debut against France but is expected to stay in goal.

Player watch: Ruslan Malinovskyi will shoulder Ukraine's creative onus in the No 10 role but there are other dangerous members of Shevchenko's team.

West Ham's mercurial talent Andriy Yarmolenko will provide a threat cutting in from the right while Spain will also have to be mindful of Viktor Tshyankov, who has three goals for Dinamo Kyiv this season. Roman Yaremchuk will likely lead the line for Ukraine.

Chelsea outcast Antonio Rudiger was substituted after an hour against Turkey but could be in line for another start as part of a three-man defence alongside Emre Can and Niklas Sule.

Kai Havertz is starting to find his feet at Chelsea, and Low could operate him in the No 10 role behind Timo Werner and Gnabry.
