First Goalscorer Abel Ruiz 9/2 with Paddy Power

Spain qualified for the knockout stages as Group B winners after a 90th minute equaliser from Abel Ruiz saw them top the group ahead of Ukraine on goal difference. La Rojita have now made it to at least the quarter-final stage in each of the last four tournaments and are aiming to win the tournament for a record breaking sixth time.

After back-to-back wins without conceding against Romania and Croatia, Spain twice came back from behind against Ukraine to secure a point in the deciding game to keep their unbeaten record in the tournament and set up this tie against Switzerland, instead of facing much tougher opposition in pre-tournament favourites France.

The Swiss, however, scraped through to the knockout stages despite losing their final two games against Italy and France, finishing second with a -3 goal difference after conceding eight times in their three group stage games. Their 2-1 win over Norway in their opening game was enough to see them through to the quarter-finals on goal difference after they finished level on points with both Italy and Norway.

This will be Switzerland’s first appearances in the knockout stages since 2011, when they finished as runners-up to none other than Spain. Goals from Ander Herrera and Thiago gave them a 2-0 win at the Aarhus Stadion.

Both of Spain’s wins at the tournament have come without conceding, while La Rojita have kept five clean sheets in their last eight matches across all competitions. Only England have conceded fewer goals (0-2) and kept more clean sheets (3-2) at the U21 Euros than Spain.
