Spain have limped into the Nations League slightly, drawing their opening two matches (including the reverse of this fixture) but picking up all three points against Switzerland.
Czech Republic won their opening match, picking up a 2-1 win over Switzerland before the 2-2 draw with Spain. They were second best against Portugal in midweek though, falling to a 2-0 defeat.
The two sides look like they are contesting for second place at this point with Portugal being the best side in the group so far. This fixture could be key in deciding which side, if any, will be able to leapfrog Portugal to win the group though.
