Fans will be hoping to see Lionel Messi in action, after he missed yesterday’s game with a sore abductor muscle injury.

Meanwhile, Sergio Aguero also missed the Italy game, and he will not travel to Madrid for Argentina’s next friendly either, the country’s federation announced.

A tweet from Seleccion Argentina read: “Sergio Aguero will be released from the group to continue the recovery of his left knee.”

Meanwhile, Spain head into the match after drawing with Germany 1-1 with Rodrigo opening the scoring after a sumptuous through ball by Andres Iniesta.

Alvaro Morata was dropped from the squad as a result of his limited appearances for Chelsea in recent weeks.
