Luis Enrique's side are safe in the Nations League and will seek a return to winning ways in a friendly with Bosnia

With one game left of the 2018 Nations League campaign, sides across Europe are all preparing for make-or-break clashes to secure promotion, relegation or a place at the finals.

For Spain however, their fate is out of their hands following defeat to Croatia on Thursday as they face Bosnia-Herzegovina in a friendly in Gran Canaria.

Luis Enrique's side are at least guarenteed of safety in Group A4 but will have to settle for second after England prevailed against Croatia at Wembley earlier today.

Bosnia meanwhile have already secured promotion to the top tier from Group B3 - but would dearly love to sign off the year with a major international scalp.

Match Preview


Isco Gerard Pique Spain 2018

Halfway through their Nations League campaign, Spain looked a dead cert to be at the finals next year, having blown away England and World Cup finalists Croatia in convincing style.

But fast-forward a month and the shoe is on the other foot. Gareth Southgate's side made history in turning Luis Enrique's oufit in their own back yard while Thursday's loss in Zagreb  left their fate out of their own hands.

Spain won't be in the last four, but they will be looking to arrest a potential three-match losing run on Sunday against a side unbeaten in their last six.

Enrique's side will be heavy favourites to prevail but they will have to do so without Sergio Ramos after the Real Madrid defender returned to his club following an injury picked up in Croatia.

Bosnia however will feel they have a chance of springing a surprise when it comes to their hosts, though they too are down a key man in the shape of Juventus' Miralem Pjanic.

Robert Prosinecki's team swept through their Nations League group unbeaten and have secured promotion to League A for the next iteration of the competition.

With Roma man Edin Dzeko once more expected to lead the attack, Bosnia will be hoping to end 2018 on a high - and head into next year's 2020 European Championship qualifiers on a hot streak.
