La Roja have been on an impressive run of form since that home defeat to England two years ago, winning all seven subsequent home matches and conceding just one goal in the process.
They can generally be relied upon for goals, having netted 26 times albeit against generally weaker opposition, so the question is whether the Swiss can keep pace with the Iberian nation.
Over the last two years, Switzerland have netted against the likes Germany, Portugal, Croatia and in two matches against Belgium, with a 5-2 Nations League victory over the latter surely a highlight.
Petkovic’s side have scored in 12 of their last 14 matches in all competitions and despite Spain’s strong defensive at home, the visitors will be confident of continuing that run this weekend.
Spain vs Switzerland Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score is offered at evens (2.00) and that looks to offer excellent value given the visitors’ impressive run of scoring against top-ranked nations.
This selection has paid out in six of Switzerland’s eight games in the Nations League and in four of Spain’s six games in the competition.
