Match Facts

Spain were embarrassed 5-1 by Holland in Friday evening’s match, meaning they will almost certainly need to win both of their final games.

Xabi Alonso gave Spain an early lead, however as soon as Robin Van Persie equalised, there was only one winner.

Holland were simply superb in the second period, scoring four goals to earn revenge for 2010 in the sweetest possible manor.

A win for Chile would almost certainly eliminate the holders and you wouldn’t bet against it after Friday’s performances.

Chile weren’t at their brilliant best against Australia, however still had enough to edge past the Socceroos.

Alexis Sanchez and Jorge Valdivia were among the goals, as Chile ran riot inside of 15 minutes.

Australia showed character to keep the score respectable; however La Roja still won 3-1 to move into second spot in Group B.

Chile have never beaten in Spain in 10 previous meetings, including a narrow 2-1 loss at the 2010 World Cup.

Their last meeting was a 2-2 draw back in 2013, where Chile really should have won, however Jesus Navas scored a last minute equaliser.

World Cup best: Spain winners (2010); Chile third place (1962)
2010 World Cup: Spain winners; Chile last 1

Team news
Spain will resist the urge to make wholesale changes, following their embarrassing defeat to the Dutch.

Xavi Hernandez could miss out, given the pace and energy of the Chilean midfield, with Cesc Fabregas pushing for a start after appearing off the bench.

David Silva didn’t have his best of games, missing a glorious chance to make it 2-0 after a superb Andres Iniesta through ball.

The Manchester City midfielder could make way for Pedro, who made an impact when he came off the bench in a wide area.

Costa was poor, but looks set to be given another chance against Chile, who struggled with crosses from wide against Australia.

Arturo Vidal played 60 minutes in the win over Australia and Jorge Sampaoli will be hoping the Juve midfielder is fine to face Spain.

Sampaoli could alternate back to his favoured three at the back formation, however given how Spain will only start with one forward, it is unlikely.

Chile could name the same XI that beat Australia, meaning Gary Medel will continue at centre back.

Spain (4-3-3): Casillas; Azpilicueta, Ramos, Pique, Alba; Alonso, Busquets, Fabregas; Iniesta, Pedro; Costa
Chile (4-4-2): Bravo; Isla, Medel, Jara, Mena; Aranguiz, Vidal, Diaz, Valdivia; Sanchez, Vargas
