Spain vs Macedonia

Spain against Macedonia. Can the Spaniards get out of bad games which playing. Followed by injury, Del Bosque was in pain. Tonight at the Santiago Bernabeu against Macedonia they will need to demonstrate a level of playing which they deserve. Chelsea's attacker is injured again and do they have the players from the sidelines for something that. We think that they have, and can.

Despite seeing their recent dip in form continue on Thursday night with a 1-0 friendly loss to France in Paris, Vicente del Bosque's side will be expected to earn a comfortable victory over Macedonia at the Santiago Bernabeu. Spain will have to do without the attacking prowess of Chelsea striker Diego Costa, who has been ruled out of the match with a thigh injury. Barcelona youngster Munir El Haddadi has been called up as a replacement.

Mikel San José, Dani Carvajal and Raúl García were handed their first cap in a 1-0 defeat to France in midweek, but del Bosque is likely to retain faith in the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Sergo Ramos and Diego Costa at the heart of his starting XI.

Boško Gjurovski's side, however, will have fond memories of encounters against titans Spain, having hosted the European Champions as part of the 100-year anniversary of football in Macedonia four years ago. Goran Pandev scored two goals in the first half to give Macedonia a shock 2–0 lead, before Spain scored three goals in the second half to record the 3–2 victory in front of a record crowd of 30,000 at the renovated Philip II Arena. Star striker Pandev has netted 26 times in 75 appearances for his country and will be desperate to add to that tally this time around, while Ivan Tričkovski and Darko Tasevski also look to make an impact.

Possible starting lineups:

Spain: Casillas; Carvajal, Ramos, San Jose, Azpilicueta; Busquets, Fabregas, Cazorla, Koke, Silva; Pedro
Macedonia: Efremov; Cuculi, Siljanovski, Damcevski, Lena; Todorovski, Najdenov, Avramovski, Velkoski, Markoski; Simonovski

Spain vs Macedonia. Spaniards must win convincing in this game without to concede goal and we are conviced that will be so
