3-time European champions Spain return to international action with a trip away to Georgia on Friday night hoping to pick up the pace on their slow start to Euro 2024 qualification.

Out of the two games they have played so far, La Roja have won against Norway but lost the other match against Scotland who top the Group A standings on 12 points after picking four wins from four.

The Spaniards, who opened the summer by lifting the Nations League title where they beat Croatia in the final, need to get back on track in the qualifiers as they sit in fourth place on 3 points.

On the other hand, Georgia, who have played a game extra over Spain, sit in second place which is an automatic promotion place and have four points to show for it.

Against Spain, they will be out to change their poor record which has seen them lose all four competitive H2Hs while conceding nine goals in the process.

They will be hoping to make their home advantage count when they host the match in Tbilisi.

Georgia vs Spain Team News

Georgia will have Napoli star man Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who has been nominated for the 2023 Ballon d’Or, ready to help his team overcome the challenge posed by the European giants.

Between the sticks will be a man very familiar to Spain in Valencia goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili, who was linked with the likes of Bayern Munich and Chelsea this summer.

Ajax forward Georges Mikautadze and Watford midfielder Giorgi Chakvetadze could also hurt La Roja.

Spain are expected to stick to the likes of Alvaro Morato, new PSG signing Marco Asension, Ballo d’Or nominee Rodri but one notable omission from that side will be Jordi Alba, who recently announced his retirement from international football.

Spain will be boosted by the news that Barcelona midfielder Gavi is fit to play having had several stitches sew up a nasty ear injury and has taken part in training sessions with a rugby cap.

Youngster Lamine Yamal, who only turned 16 in July this year, could break Gavi’s record as the youngest player to feature for Spain if he makes an appearance.
