After 3-0 victories in their opening fixtures, Scotland and Spain will look to keep the good times rolling when they face off on Tuesday.

Scotland put three past Cyprus thanks to a late flurry from Scott McTominay, before Spain matched that scoreline against Norway a few hours later, surviving some nervy moments before Joselu struck twice in the dying embers to seal the three points.

Here’s all you need to know about the battle of Group A’s early leaders.

Scotland team news

Che Adams and Anthony Ralston have both pulled out of the squad through injuries, with Hearts striker Lawrence Shankland called up instead.

Potential debutants: Zander Clark, Liam Kelly, Dominic Hyam.

(3-4-2-1): Gunn; Hanley, Porteous, Tierney; Hickey, McGregor, McTominay, Robertson; McGinn, Christie; Dykes.

Spain team news

Despite the convincing scoreline, Spain struggled against Norway and there could be a handful of changes for Luis de la Fuente, including a start for in-form midfielder Dani Ceballos.

Joselu came off the bench to score twice late on, but new captain Alvaro Morata will likely retain his place up top.

Potential debutants: David Garcia.

(4-3-3): Arrizabalaga; Porro, Nacho, Laporte, Balde; Merino, Rodri, Ceballos; Olmo, Morata, Gavi.

Spain are obvious favourites on paper but they were nowhere near as convincing as they should have been against a Norway side who didn’t even have Erling Haaland available. La Roja can be beaten, it’s just a question of whether Scotland have enough about them to do what Norway could not.

The hosts will be full of confidence but De la Fuente will already be looking at ways to ensure Spain do not put on a similarly sluggish performance. Some key changes to the team should take care of that.

Ultimately, expect an entertaining affair which may just be edged by Spain.

Prediction: Scotland 1-2 Spain
